Just when we thought 2020 could not get any more wild, 2021 enters. So much has happened in such a short amount of time, especially in new-car sales. The industry went through mass inventory shortages and a worldwide pandemic, COVID-19. With that being said consumers continued their hunt for the perfect ride, which is why we have compiled a list of the top cars, trucks and SUV's!
The 2021 Honda Civic is powered by either a 158-hp 2.0-litre four-cylinder or a turbocharged 1.5-litre that makes up to 180 horsepower. Some features that are available to you are adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, automatic high-beams, blind-spot monitor and forward-collision warning...just to name a few.

The Toyota Highlander is known for its 7 or 8 seating capacity. Some would even call it the modern station wagon. With a standard V-6 engine or the fuel-sipping hybrid option; both powertrains are available with all-wheel drive. This is the perfect SUV for a growing family. It is to be noted that the Highlander's competition lies in the mid-sized SUV class with makes and models such as the Kia Telluride or the Hyundai Palisade.

The Grand Cherokee was made with all lifestyles in mind, from the affordable Laredo to the clean and classy Summit Trim. The JGC is equipped with the standard V-6 but for those that need a bit more "go-power" Jeep offers a 360-HP V-8. Asides from the engine, if you want a bit more control of your shifting abilities you should consider the Trailhawk. The Trailhawk comes with a 2 speed transfer case, an electronically controlled limited-slip rear differential, hill-descent control, Kevlar-reinforced tires, and an air suspension that provides additional ground clearance. If you have a growing family, then we would recommend the Grand Cherokee L as it comes with a third row of seats!

It is quite impressive that this mid-size sedan had a 7 percent increase in sales over the last year. The 2021 had only a few design elements changed, such as a new tablet-like touchscreen that is either 7 or 9 inches. If you bump up to the XSE you will notice that a hybrid powertrain is now available and the XLE received new leather upholstery. Something to note is that every Camry comes standard with enhanced driver assist which includes technology that has the ability to better detect pedestrians and bicyclists.

The most robust and luxurious off-road SUV, yet to grace the market. Inspired by the 4Runner Suv and the Tacoma pickup truck, while also delivering a much smoother ride. The RAV4 comes with 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an eight-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive is standard but all-wheel drive is optional on the LE, XLE, XLE Premium, and Limited, and standard on the Adventure and TRD Off-Road models. However, if you are wanting more modern-day standard features, we recommend staying away from the base model.
