‘Nissan has been working hard over the last few years to create some truly amazing sports cars, with many fans claiming that the Nissan 370Z and the GT-R are some of the best sports cars in recent generations. In 2020, Nissan is going to add a new car to its lineup of sports vehicles and everyone is already getting excited. According to Nissan, the 2020 Nissan Z is a small supercar of its own, with 350 horsepower thanks to its brutal 3.7-liter V6 engine. In-terms of gas-mileage, the company claims you should expect 19 miles per gallon in the city and 26 on the highway, which is quite high, even for a sports car.
The Nissan Z will arrive in multiple models and includes either manual or automatic transmission. You’ll have a choice between a base version, a touring version or a NISMO version, with the former costing around $30,000 and the later a much higher $47,000. We’re extremely excited to give the Nissan Z a go when it hopefully comes out in mid-2020, mostly because the 370Z and the GT-R have both been incredible sports cars and Nissan is likely going to raise the bar even further with this one.
Cadillac Escalade ESV
Predicted Cost: $78,195
The 2020 Cadillac Escalade ESV is a redesigned version of the Escalade with 300 fewer pounds of weight and a new platform similar to the one on the 2019 Silverado and the Sierra 1500. You can expect to find a new independent rear suspension option which makes rides more comfortable according to Cadillac, as-well-as new tech options, including new gauge displays and a redesigned infotainment system.
The biggest difference between the Escalade and Escalade ESV is the length of the cars. The standard Escalade measures at a length of 203.9 inches while the ESV adds an extra 21 inches to a total of 224, which gives it a much larger cargo, more room for passengers, and a fuel capacity of 31 gallons instead of 26. Both cars remain as some of the most popular cars in the luxury SUV market.

It took Chevrolet three years to take its concept of the FNR-X from concept to execution. The car originally debuted in 2017 to mixed reactions and is slated to hit the markets sometime in 2020. The FNR-X is Chevrolet’s version of an excellent hybrid that’s fast, modern and sleek. Its design is much edgier and bold than Chevy’s usual lineup, making it a great contender for one of next year’s best new surprises. Some of the features you’re going to find in the FNR-X include remote control doors, speech recognition, a customizable ID information system, and the beloved driver assist.
You can expect a decent-sized cargo in the FNR-X, especially when compared to some of Chevy’s other vehicles. The plug-in hybrid contains both a regular engine and an electric motor, with two driving modes — the 'V' which stands for Versatility and the 'S' which stands for Sports. You'll also enjoy a dynamic and customizable suspension and handling profile which you can tailor on-demand based on your style and needs. If you’re looking to purchase a hybrid car in the next few months, it might be a good idea to wait until next year because this just might be the ideal car for you.’
