10 Future SUVs Worth Waiting For: 2024-2025

SUV sales have continued to skyrocket over the years, and the reasons for that are not far-fetched. They are usually very practical, safe, fuel-efficient and provide truck-like towing capabilities. But regardless of the success achieved in the SUV segment, automakers are still working tirelessly to ensure whatever is rolling off their assembly lines whets the appetite of shoppers.

Whether you are saving up for a family hauler or a high-performance SUV, there are tons of options coming your way in the next year or the one after. Even if you are not ready to jump on the EV bandwagon just yet, there are still a handful of gasoline and hybrid SUVs to choose from.

10 2024 Hyundai Ioniq 7

Estimated Launch Date: Q4 2023

The 2024 Ioniq 7 is Hyundai’s first three-row electric SUV that shares the same E-GMP platform with the Ioniq 5 and many Kia EV models. With its next-generation design, and lounge-like interior that features an L-shaped rear sofa in the concept vehicle, you can expect the Ioniq 7 to start at $50,000. While the power figures and battery sizes are not yet public knowledge, the Ioniq 7 may be able to last up to 300 miles per charge.

Hyundai claims the Ioniq 7 will take just about 30 minutes to charge, from 10 to 80 percent. However, while the concept car is capable of full-autonomous driving, the Ioniq 7s hitting the dealerships will be semi-autonomous.

Notable Features

  • Room for 7–8 passengers with three-row seating
  • 300-mile potential driving range with 100-kWh battery
  • Fast charging capability

9 2024 Jeep Recon

Estimated Launch Date: 2023

Green 2024 Jeep Recon off-road

The Recon is proof of Jeep’s commitment to achieving the goal of zero emissions and having battery-electric variants for all Jeep models by 2030. The head of the Jeep brand for North America, Jim Morrison, announced the production of the Recon and the plug-in hybrid Wagoneer S in 2022, but a lot of information about the Recon is not yet in the public domain.

At first glance, the Recon looks like a union between the Wrangler and the Ford Bronco, with its boxy shape and removable doors. It should have around the same dimensions as the two-row Grand Cherokee and four-door Wrangler. Combining off-road prowess and all-electric efficiency, the Recon will probably start at around $60,000.

Notable Features

  • Likely to achieve over 200 miles of range
  • Standard four-wheel drive
  • One-touch power top and removable doors

8 2024 Lexus TX

Estimated Launch Date: Fall 2023

Silver 2024 Lexus TX

Slotted above the two-row Lexus RX, the TX is a three-row midsize SUV that grabs your attention from every angle. But with an estimated starting price of $55,000, the TX is a bit pricier than the Acura MDX, Cadillac XT6, and Infiniti QX60. The 2024 TX is similar in size and performance to the Toyota Grand Highlander, but it also comes with a plug-in hybrid powertrain, which the upcoming Toyota lacks.

With three powertrain options available, the TX doesn’t lack motivation. The TX 350 gets a turbocharged four-cylinder engine with an output of 275 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque, while the TX 500h F Sport Performance unleashes 366 hp and 409 lb-ft of torque from a turbocharged 2.4-liter gasoline engine with the support of an electric motor. A TX 550h+ PHEV is also coming sometime in 2024, with a 3.5-liter V6 and an electric motor.

Notable Features

  • Three-row seating with 20.1 cu ft of cargo space
  • Three powertrains
  • Standard 14-inch touchscreen display

7 2024 Toyota Grand Highlander

Estimated Launch Date: Summer 2023

Slotted between the regular Toyota Highlander and the Sequoia, the 2024 Grand Highlander is a three-row SUV with three powertrains, including two hybrid options. Unlike the Chevrolet Suburban, which is a stretched Tahoe, the Grand Highlander rides on a different platform and starts at a higher price than the regular Highlander.

The base engine is a 265-hp 2.4-liter turbo four-cylinder, while the hybrids produce 243 hp and 362 hp. As a family hauler, the Grand Highlander is furnished with a 12.3-inch infotainment touchscreen, and accessories including 7 USB-C ports, three drinks holders, and 10 more cupholders. The trunk is big enough to accommodate seven carry-on suitcases.

Notable Features

  • Three powertrains, including two hybrid options
  • Seven USB-C ports
  • 20.6 cu ft cargo space

6 2024 Honda Prologue

Estimated Launch Date: Spring 2024

For the upcoming Prologue, Honda teams up with General Motors, so it’s likely going to be more successful than the Clarity. The two-row Prologue is Honda’s first all-electric SUV, but details about its driving range and power output are still hazy. But since the Prologue shares the same platform with the Chevrolet Blazer EV, you can expect its range to be around 247 to 320 miles, depending on the model.

The five-passenger Prologue is about 192.0 inches in length, which means it’s longer than the Ford Mustang Mach-E and Hyundai Ioniq 5. It comes with two large screens, but there are also a bunch of buttons on the steering wheel and center console.

Notable Features

  • 11-inch digital instrument panel and an 11.8-inch infotainment screen
  • 102.6 cu ft of cabin room
  • 21-inch wheels

5 2024 Kia EV9

Estimated Launch Date: Q4 2023

Silver 2024 Kia EV9 in the woods

At first glance, you might mistake the 2024 Kia EV9 for the Rivian R1S, with its handsome, angular looks and LED technology. The three-row EV9 is basically a living room on wheels, with enough space to accommodate a family of seven. Interestingly, the third row offers enough space for passengers who are as tall as 6 ft 4 inches.

The EV9’s all-electric motor produces up to 379 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque, with a claimed 0-60 mph time of 5.0 seconds. Kia also claims the larger-battery, single-motor, rear-wheel-drive version of the EV9 can achieve 300 miles per charge.

Notable Features

  • 300 miles maximum driving range
  • Three-row seating with 20.2 cu ft cargo room
  • Dual 12.3-inch displays

Volvo is one of the leading manufacturers in the drive for an electric future, and the new flagship EX90 SUV is another step in that direction. You are greeted by a button-free dashboard, and a “floating” center console in the elegantly sparse cabin. Another awesome feature of the EX90 is the bi-directional charging capability, which means it can charge your laptop or even another EV.

When it comes to power, the EX90 boasts dual electric motors with an output of 496 hp and 671 lb-ft of torque. Volvo claims the EX90 can travel up to 300 miles on a full charge.

Taking cues from the Chevrolet Camaro and Corvette, the all-new Blazer EV sports an athletic design that even fans of the Mustang Mach-E can’t ignore. Starting at $44,995, Chevrolet has already sold out the Blazer EV even before its official launch. The Blazer EV will be available in four trim levels including the 1LT, 2LT, RS, and SS.

The Blazer EV with the SS performance badge is the real deal, with an output of 557 hp and 648 lb-ft of torque. In Wide Open Watts mode, the Blazer SS teleports to 60 mph in less than 4.0 seconds, according to General Motors.

Notable Features

  • Wide Open Watts maximum power mode
  • Hands-free start system
  • 11-inch digital gauge display and 17.7-inch diagonal infotainment system

For over 70 years, the Chevrolet Corvette has occupied a special place in the hearts of sports car enthusiasts, but now it wants to woo SUV fans. For now, everything about the Corvette SUV is based on speculation, as Chevrolet has not made any official announcement. But the Corvette SUV sets its sights on performance-oriented SUVs like the Porsche Cayenne, BMW X3 M, and X5 M.

The Corvette SUV will probably be available in three trim levels, with a starting price of $80,000. The powertrain specifications are still sketchy, but you can expect something good enough to challenge the Cayenne. The photo displayed here is a HotCars exclusive render by digital artist Timothy Adry Emmanuel.

Notable Features

  • Estimated maximum output of 682 hp from a hp 6.2-liter V8
  • All-new Chevrolet e-AWD system
  • 800-volt operating voltage and 200-kWh battery pack

1 2025 Mercedes-Benz EQG

Estimated Launch Date: 2024

With only the G-Class in its lineup of off-roaders, Mercedes-Benz has realized it’s time to have an all-electric version. However, the CEO and president of Mercedes-Benz Cars Central & Eastern Europe revealed that the EQG will not run on the same platform as other electric Mercedes models. If the EQG concept, which Mercedes describes as a “near-production study,” is anything to go by, the upcoming electric G-Wagons will not be all that different from today’s gas-guzzling G-Wagons, with its boxy, ladder-frame, live-rear-axle construction.

The performance of the EQG is still largely unknown, but Mercedes say it will have several models with varying power levels. One of the coolest features of the EQG is its “tank turn” capability, which allows the front wheels to turn in a particular direction and the back wheels in another, without the vehicle moving.

Notable Features

  • AMG versions will be available
  • “Tank turn” capability
  • Four electric motors
