Pictures of 2022 SUV coming out

The change of car design, technology, or feature may not be as extremely fast as the mobile gadget. We can almost find a new gadget every month. However, the change is there as soon as 2022 moves closer. You will find many car manufacturers ready to release their new creations to the market.

As we can see, you can find a lot of information, a spy shot, as well as official news about the new car that will be released in 2022. It is good for you who plan to buy a new car or upgrade your old car.

Among the many models and car types, we found that the SUV category is the most interesting. There will be so many new as well as redesigned models that you might never imagine before.

Here, we have already collected 19 of those SUVs that we consider worth waiting for the SUV for its release. They got new additions and improvements, giving you a different experience and, of course, a better car to ride. I have also written about the SUVs released in 2023 and beyond, so be sure to read my article entitled 2023 SUVs Coming Out.

2022 Acura MDX

As the best seller car from this brand, MDX will return with the new version next year. Acura said that this new version would have better performance, more luxury features, and a bigger size.

Many people, especially those in love with MDX, have great expectations for this new version. As we all know, last year, this car became the most sold model from Acura, with around 50,000 units sold. That number is almost the third total sold number of the car by this brand.

What’s new in the 2022 Acura MDX? Mostly, it will still use the similar V6 engine that MDX used last year. It is a 3.5-liter engine that produces 290 horsepower. However, the nine-speed automatic transmission will be replaced by new 10-speed transmission. With shorter first gear, this new system will boost the acceleration push. Now, we need to wait for the release of this model.

2022 Cadillac Lyriq

Now, if you want an electric car that can do what a standard car does, you can wait for the new model from GM and Cadillac. Both companies design this new Lyriq to facilitate that car lover who wants to feel a new experience with the fully electric-powered car with similar performance to the fossil-fueled car. The car can last for 300 miles of normal driving before you need to recharge it. It is a good number for your daily activity.

As for the style, it is satisfying. They pay more attention to the interior design this time. Therefore, when GM revealed the 2022 Cadillac Lyriq, we were mesmerized by its cool and beautiful interior. Furthermore, it seems that it also has a lot of high-tech features inside. We can only say this car is a perfect choice for the digital generation today.

2022 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

Jeep has been preparing this model for quite a long time. The first spy photo showed the full-size SUV model for the new Grand Wagoneer. However, the latest information said it would be smaller than the first or prototype version.

What we like more, the lighting elements also look different, where the new one has a more realistic design. Plus, the simplification of the grille also adds more beauty to this new car.

Even though we haven’t got the specification information, we predict that this car will have a similar component under the hood similar to the Ram model. So, it will use the V6 3.6-liter engine. And it may also have other models that use the V8 with eTorque technology for more power. One thing is for sure: this SUV will become one of the strong contenders in the market.

  • Status: Redesign
  • MSRP: $60,000
  • Release Date: 2021

2022 Volkswagen Taos

We can’t decide whether the new Volkswagen Taos will be crossovers or SUVs. But, we can see it as the new combination of those two types. The size is smaller than the VW Tiguan, which is known for its compact size. Yet, it has so much space in the cargo and back seat area. Or, we can call it the crossover from the outside and a comfortable SUV on the inside.

The 2022 VW Taos will mostly be available in the spring of next year. Of course, we will find out what kind of engine and other details in this car at that time. But, if we have to predict, it will have a similar engine as the other compact SUV by this brand. So, we expect a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine with 158 horsepower. It will be a small beast you can have.

  • MSRP: $24,000
  • Release Date: 2021

2022 Hyundai Tucson

Hyundai released the latest Tucson in 2015. So, the 2022 version will be the newest version of this model. According to this company, the new version will be redesigned to fit the customer needs and the trend in the year it is released. They add many new things, from fresh style, a new powertrain, and a completely new interior design. Plus, it is also available in two options, FWD and AWD.

It is a good choice for you who wants to have a new and fresh start on the next car you buy. The design will satisfy your thirst for beauty and a cool appearance. And do not forget about the performance. It will mostly still use the engine that you can find in Sonata N-Line. So, expect a 290 horsepower 2.5-liter turbocharged engine under its hood.

  • Status: Redesigned
  • MSRP: $25,000
  • Release Date: end of 2021

2022 Kia Sorento Plugin Hybrid

Your wish to see the new version of this model will be fulfilled for you who love Sorento models by Kia. Kia has already prepared to release the 2020 Kia Sorento next year. And Kia also uses the hybrid system for the engine.

The hybrid system features a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and a 67-kW electric motor. The 13.9-kWh battery pack will support the electric motor. Combining these two creates a big boost at 261 horsepower that will push this car on any road where you take it for a run.

This car could become one of the important products in the new category, the hybrid category. We see it as the hottest trend next year or in the future. So, we can only see Kia did a great job preparing this kind of model for 2021.

2022 Volvo XC100

The new Volvo SUV comes with XC100 as its name. Compared to the previous XC90, this new version will have a bigger body. It is 30 cm longer, which reaches 5.2 meters, and even bigger than the BMW X7. Thanks to this big body, you also get more room inside.

I look forward to more room to stretch your legs on the passenger seat. A big cargo room is also waiting for you.

It feels that the next year, we will find many cars that focus on providing the most comfortable ride for their owner. Volvo also will do the same with this series. SUV won’t be only a vehicle with high power that can tackle many roads. But, we can see it as the new trend of the more family-oriented SUV next year. Let’s wait for more detailed information from Volvo about this car.

  • MSRP: $85,000
  • Release Date: 2022

2022 Chevy Equinox

Chevy Equinox will be refreshed on its new 2022 version. However, do not let it mislead you. Even though it is only the refreshed version of the existing Equinox, we can assure you that it has more new elements you can enjoy. We can call it the new version of this model, which is suitable for this worth-waiting-SUV list.

The most noticeable is its face, maybe. The larger grille gives it a new look. Moreover, the narrow and thinner headlight also adds more accents on its front side. We can say it will have more aggressive looks than its previous model. Yet, the engine and almost everything under the hood won’t experience any change. It’s still the turbocharged 1.5-liter engine with 170 horsepower—a good specification, especially if you want to have a good-looking car.

  • Status: Redesigned
  • MSRP: $25,000
  • Release Date: 2021

2022 Fisker Ocean

Fisker Automotive also joins the fray with its new car in the electric vehicle department. It is called the Ocean SUV. We can’t see it sooner, as they announced that it will be released in 2022 or two years from now. Best of all, this car manufacturer also is known for its affordable starting price for its product. So, we also expect that Ocean will have the same price range.

The design, however, reminds you of Range Rover Evoque, which is a good thing. It looks stronger and safer for road drive. Moreover, this company also works with Electrify America for its electrical system. As they said, it can run for up to 300 miles at the fully charged battery; we can expect a good performance from the Ocean SUV. And, guaranteed, it will be a good waiting for you who want to taste the electric car’s greatness.

2022 Hyundai Terracan

2022 Hyundai Terracan offers a new ambiance that you might find rare on the urban SUV. Yes, we are talking about that muscle and power-looking SUV. Many experts predict that it will be the ladder-frame SUV. That means you will find the bulky look SUV from Hyundai, one of this brand’s rare sights. As we know, Hyundai tends to use a more elegant and smooth design. This SUV could be a breakthrough in the design department of this company.

The most interesting thing, however, it uses the unibody construction style. This style eliminates that stern and off-road-ish look. Combining two opposite styles is always a good thing, which creates a new and exciting look worth waiting for. So, let’s wait and see how Hyundai will deal with this new car.

2022 Lexus LQ

The magical appearance that the RX SUV has is tried to be brought back through this car. We can expect that the 2022 Lexus LQ will ooze the strong nuance of the luxurious SUV. It is also interesting to see if this car manufacturer can bring back the unique design from the two-decade-old SUV. It will have a lot of touch and modernization, which will fit today’s car design trend.

Even though the design will adapt to the old RX SUV, we believe the core specification fits a powerful ride. The 416 horsepower V6 engine has a big chance to enter its hood. Furthermore, it also most likely uses the new 10-speed automatic transmission for better acceleration and speed. Let’s wait if Lexus can surprise us.

  • Status: All-New
  • MSRP: $80,000
  • Release Date: 2021

2022 Lotus SUV

Next year, we have to say that you will see so many new players in the SUV market. Lotus is one of them. We all know this brand is a specialist in fast and lightweight sports cars. As one of the Formula 1 constructor brands, we don’t need to doubt its ability to create that land jet. So, the 2020 Lotus SUV will be their effort to enter this market.

The spy shot shows that it will be more to crossover than the pure SUV. It is a good effort, which is still related to their specialist in creating a fast car. So, the crossover is the right choice for their first SUV product. Of course, it also means that this car also has a powerful and fast performance. We can do nothing but wait until it is released.

  • Status: All-New
  • MSRP: $52,000
  • Release Date: 2022

2022 Ford Fusion Active

Ford also joins the competition with Fusion Active. We all know that this brand has a lot of experience with this type of car. They have been released many SUV models since they started their business. Therefore, we believe that the Fusion sedan’s new change into SUV shape won’t become any problem for Ford’s design team.

The new Active will have a similar base as Mondeo, another Fusion series for the European market. So, we can expect a long-size SUV for this Active model. One of the most important things here will have an appearance that tells you that this is outdoor.

As for the inside, most likely, it will use the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and eight-speed automatic transmission. One thing for sure, we need to believe in Ford to deliver another wow SUV with Fusion Active.

  • Status: New Variant
  • MSRP: $30,000
  • Release Date: 2021

2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Grand Cherokee is the famous model for its ability to run on off-road obstacles. This time, Jeep tries to give it more value by refining it into more acceptable for an on-road drive. This new Grand Cherokee will use the Alfa Rome Stelvio handling design for the on-road drive. Finally, you can boost your muscular Grand Cherokee on the city road that you pass through every day.

With its big size engine room, practically, all kinds of the engine can enter it. We expect a hybrid system inside by combining the standard V6 3.6-liter engine with the electric motor. This one will be one of the best SUVs you can see on the market when they release it. It has a powerful appearance and performance, which are the ingredients for the best SUV.

2022 GMC Terrain

If you are a GMC Terrain fan, you need to be happy because your favorite car will receive a new refreshment. The newly redesigned GMC Terrain will be released in 2021, according to the GMC official announcement. This car was planned to be released this year. But, because of the pandemic, they decide to postpone it until next year.

What can you get from the new GMC Terrain? At least the exterior will get many changes, such as a new front and rear end. The interior, mostly, won’t get too much change as this model is already amazing inside. So, we expect that they might add some new features or simple accents and decorations to make the interior look new.

The performance also uses a similar 1.5-iter turbocharged engine with 6-speed automatic transmission. This is only the basis of our expectations. We, of course, want to see it run on a more powerful engine. We wait and see. That’s what we can do right now.

  • Status: Redesigned

  • Release Date: 2021

2022 Audi Q4 e-Tron

Next, we have Audi Q4 e-Tron. This is the full electric crossover SUV from Audi. We already saw it at the event in 2019. Audi previewed it as one of the concept cars that they will release in the future. Guess what? The future is next year, at least. It is quite exciting because it has many unique and interesting features you couldn’t find on similar cars.

Q4 e-Tron uses the 82 kWh batteries, which can move its motor located in the rear axle. This system can easily produce 302 horsepower. You will see one of the most powerful electric cars through this product. The New 2022 Q4 Tron’s expected price started at $45,000, which is super affordable for such a luxury electric SUV like this.

  • Release Date: 2022

2022 Nissan Ariya

Nissan also will release electric vehicles next year with the 2020 Nissan Ariya. This SUV will become one of the products in the Leaf hatchback section of the Nissan showroom. As for performance, it said that it could run for 300 miles before you recharge it. We think this is the standard number that every electric SUV has today. But, Ariya will also come with so many features and new high-tech facilities in its interior.

The design, from the early spoiler, we can see that it has a new design concept. The usual design that Nissan used on their car is sharper and consists of many angular lines. However, Nissan tries to remove that concept for this SUV. It indeed looks more beautiful, especially for SUV that is well-known for its powerful looks.

  • Status: All-New
  • MSRP: $40,000
  • Release Date: 2021

2022 BMW X2

If you are looking for a premium hatchback, you can wait for this BMW X2. This compact crossover SUV offers a unique design that combines the small crossover with the elevated seating position. Furthermore, the high ground clearance also gives it more mobility for different types of roads.

The design has already been viewed this year. We can see that the X2 is the redesigned version of the old X1. The headlight uses a different design. The grille most likely will have experienced big changes than the previous X1. In short, the design will improve a lot on the X2 version.

As for the performance, it uses 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four, which can provide up to 302 horsepower. You can expect a powerful ride to the city and off-road road with this SUV.

  • MSRP: $37,000
  • Release Date: 2021

2022 Mercedes EQC

Based on the EQV model, the electric V-Class car, the 2022 Mercedes EQC, will also use the same concept. Currently, we found that Mercedes-Benz is working on the new electric platform for its new car. So, we can see this as the preparation for the new release of this SUV.

As for the design, we can expect a better exterior dimension that is wider than the previous Mercedes electric SUV. The roof part also looks sportier, which is a perfect design for a crossover SUV like EQC.

One thing that will be the amazing value of this car is the weight. Even though it has a bigger size and batteries, we believe it will have a lower weight than EQS. This car will be completely revealed by late 2021.

  • Status: Facelift
  • MSRP: $68,000
  • Release Date: 2021


Those are the SUVs that will be released in the future, at least next year, that you can wait for. Mostly, they have beautiful designs and a new appearance, especially for the refreshed version.

We also can expect a more powerful performance from those new SUVs. However, we still need to wait until they are all officially released. Once each car manufacturer does that, you will have a chance to buy and get the best SUV for your daily activity.
