That’s right: there are plenty of exciting new SUVs headed to your local dealerships, and they’re priced below $30,000. Here’s a sampling of just a few of these cool new SUVs coming in 2020 and 2021.
Price: Starting at $21,900
Coolest Features: Upscale, luxury-like details throughout the interior, from optional leather seats to a whole host of high-tech driver assistance features.
Mazda already has a solid lineup of SUV models. But in 2020, the Mazda CX-30 will be joining the pack – and it offers a cool new take on a crossover.
The 2020 Mazda CX-30 will be a compact SUV – it’ll be bigger than the subcompact Mazda CX-3 and smaller than the CX-5 midsize SUV. And it will be designed to look like a blend between the Mazda 3 sedan hatchback and a traditional SUV. With multiple engine options, upscale features inside the cabin, and all of the latest technology, this upcoming SUV won’t break the budget, but it will look good.¹
Price: Starting at $19,000
Coolest Features: The Trailblazer is already getting attention for its expansive suite of driver assistance features. Multiple cameras and options like adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, and pedestrian braking will all be helpful behind the wheel.
If you used to drive – and love – your Chevrolet Trailblazer, you’ll be excited about Chevy’s 2021 lineup. The Trailblazer is making its return to dealerships, and it’ll be even better than before. Since the Chevrolet Trailblazer disappeared in 2009, many fans have missed it. And that’s why it’s getting a redesign and relaunch for the 2021 model year.
The revived Trailblazer will be a crossover, filling the current gap in the Chevy lineup between the small Trax and moderately sized Equinox. With cool styling options, like a two-tone paint job, and a roomy interior, this new SUV will be even more interesting than its predecessors.²
Expected Price: Around $28,000
Coolest Features: The new Bronco will be an off-road vehicle, with rugged features like a set of rumored removable doors for open-air driving and a possible open – or even removable – roof.
Until the mid-1990s, the Ford Bronco was one of the most popular SUVs on the road. You probably even see old models still driving around today! And all that love for the original Bronco is exactly why Ford is relaunching this classic SUV in 2020. The new Ford Bronco will be a tough SUV that’s designed to hit the open road. And it’ll be a good fit for anyone who loves off-roading, featuring new technology and bold capabilities to suit any adventure.
Ford is keeping pretty quiet about what, exactly, the new Bronco will include and look like. But you can get your first glimpse soon. The Bronco will be arriving in early 2020 according to Ford, so you may be able to get behind the wheel soon.³
Buick Encore GX
Price: Starting at $23,100
Coolest Features: The Encore GX will come with plenty of options, including three different trim levels, engine choices, and even a long list of driver assistance technology that can add to your on-the-road experience.
You may already know the Buick Encore well. But in 2020 you’ll find a new SUV hitting dealership lots: the 2020 Buick Encore GX. A bit bigger than the original Encore and smaller than the Envision, the Encore GX will be Buick’s answer to a bigger take on a subcompact SUV.
And the Buick Encore GX is an entirely new SUV for this automaker. It’s three inches longer than the basic Encore, and it packs a bigger cargo area. But what really stands out about the Encore GX is its all-new platform, powered by all-new engine options. This SUV will be the first in Buick’s lineup to try out a supposedly quieter and more fuel-efficient combination.⁴
