New cars for 2023

The last few years have been like a sadistic version of Groundhog Day. As the future seems suspended, it is about to make up for lost time. Judging by the new car deals for 2023, we predict we’ll be leaving our homes, on and off the road, in sleek, rugged, high-tech, dazzling, dazzling vehicles. As some aging favorites retire, offerings from fledgling companies will spin and roar through our streets. The temptation of the new car will come in many forms – with electric, old-fashioned gas grunt, or a combination of the two – for your eager heart and, the manufacturers hope, your garage. We present to you the cars, trucks and SUVs for 2023.
