If you’re ready to hit the open road but your vehicle can’t quite keep up, it might be time to go shopping. This model year’s cars have a lot to offer, and here are some of the most recent award winners:
2021 Chevrolet Colorado
If you want to drive a truck, but your daily life calls for a smaller vehicle with better fuel economy, the 2021 Chevrolet Colorado midsize truck may be a good choice for you. Its relatively compact size helps it achieve an EPA-estimated 25 mpg on the highway, but the truck can also tow up to 7,000 pounds or carry 1,550 pounds in the bed when properly equipped. Last year, the Chevrolet Colorado won a 2020 Kelley Blue Book® Best Buy Award, and its sporty ZR2 version brought home recognition as Popular Mechanics Editors’ Choice Best Off-Roader.
2021 Ford F-150
The Chevy Colorado is a good truck for city driving, but if you need something even more versatile, consider the 2021 Ford F-150. This is the 2021 North American Truck of the Year, and it was redesigned for this model year. Its best-in-class available towing and payload make all the difference if you need to take a lot with you to work. When you’re inside the cabin, the available work surface means you can fill out paperwork with ease. If most of your work is on the computer, the Ford F-150’s FordPass™ Connect with 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot makes hopping online easy.
2021 Ford Mustang Mach E
You might see the Mustang name and assume it’s a sporty car, but the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach E is actually a sport utility vehicle. Besides bearing a sporty name, it rolled away with the Utility Vehicle win from the 2021 North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year awards. While it is an electric vehicle, that doesn’t mean it can’t keep up with your life. Select an eAWD drivetrain option for greater capability, and enjoy the Premium’s EPA-estimated range of up to 300 miles.
2021 Hyundai Elantra
SUVs and trucks might be the most popular rides on the road, but there are still some good cars to choose from. The Hyundai Elantra is a compact car ideal for driving around town. Completely redesigned for the 2021 model year, the Elantra won the 2021 North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year for the car category. Choose between the standard model, a hybrid version, and the N Line sport option.
2021 Kia Telluride
If you pay attention to car news, you’ve probably heard of the Kia Telluride SUV. The model first made its debut in 2020 and brought home many awards for its capability and adaptable interior. If you like taking road trips with a camper or other trailer, the Telluride can tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped. Its available Kia Drive Wise systems, including Blind Spot View Monitor and Highway Driving Assist, even give you a digital copilot as you drive.
