The Tesla Cybertruck and 5 Other Cool Things We Hope to See in 2022

Next year is just around the corner, and should be interesting, automotively speaking.

Tesla

We saw a lot in 2021: a flood of new EVs, skyrocketing used car prices, and a computer chip shortage that will likely continue to wreak havoc for a while yet. While 2022 might have some doom and gloom on the horizon, there are some things that we’re actually looking forward to seeing. With that in mind, we put them down on paper.

6 GAME-CHANGING CARS WE SAW IN 2021

Tesla Cybertruck

Tesla’s Cybertruck made waves when Elon Musk showed it off in 2019. That said, a lot has changed in the electric truck world over the past few years: Ford is launching its F-150 Lightning, GMC’s Hummer EV is on the horizon and there’s no short of independent electric truck automakers looking to fill a void. Will the Tesla Cybertruck make the same splash if it rolls out into the public in 2022 that it did in 2019? Will Tesla even push its electric vehicle out into the world in 2022? Or will delays push it back further? We’re looking into our crystal ball, but we’re going to have to wait and see.

GMC Hummer EV

It seems like electric pickups are the talk of the automotive town. GMC’s Hummer EV more than likely will see driveways in 2022, as it went into official production in November. It was reported that we might see GMC’s reborn Hummer before 2022, but we’re sure that 2022 will see a larger pool of these EV trucks hit customers’ driveways.

Dodge's Hellcat Replacement

The potent and fun Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger Hellcats are getting near the end of their lives, and Dodge announced it's working on an electric replacement. Ushering in the concept of an electric muscle car is interesting, and we’re hoping to see early hints at what Dodge is working on in 2022.

C8 Corvette Z06

The eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette’s first high-performance variant was finally unveiled this year. The upcoming Corvette Z06 sports a naturally aspirated, overhead camshaft V8 that makes 670 hp—besting its supercharged predecessor. Scheduled to slide into production next year, we’re looking forward to these hitting the street before the end of the year.

Honda Civic Type R

Honda’s upcoming Civic Type R is still being tested and has yet to make an official appearance. That’s set to change in 2022, and will also likely be ushered into production. The upcoming Civic Type R shouldn’t be a huge departure from its replacement, but the styling will be significantly more subdued than the 10th-generation car.

Mercedes-AMG One

After making a concept debut a few years back, the Mercedes-AMG One hypercar is rumored to hit the production line next year. Joining the Aston Martin Valkyrie, the Mercedes-AMG One is one of the most over-the-top machines expected to hit a public roadway. Effectively a production-car version of Mercedes-AMG’s dominant F1 machine, the AMG One will surely be a highlight of next year.
