10 Cool Cars That Will Hit The Road in 2017!

Your home says a lot about you, but perhaps nothing expresses your personality and lifestyle more than what you drive. No matter if you’re driving for work, just taking the kids to school, or getting on the track on the weekends, owning a beautiful automobile that turns heads is a daily source of pride. So we took a look at the new models that are being released by the end of 2016 or 2017 and hand picked 10 very different cars with very different price tags, styles, and functionality to are with you - with price tags from the low 30's to over 200 grand. But the one thing they all have in common is that people will say, “Cool!” as you drive by!

1. BMW M2
The new MBW M2 will be a lighter and more agile model of the beloved M3, expected to be released in 2017 and available as a sporty 2-Series coupe or convertible. With a twin-turbocharged engine delivering around 400 horsepower, this Beamer will really move in style, with its $52,900 MSRP considered reasonable for a mid-range luxury car. You can't go wrong with a Beamer, and the M2 backs that up!

2. Tesla Model S
Late 2017 will see the release of Tesla’s all-electric sports sedan, the Model S. It's definitely in the luxury car range with a price of $71,000 up to just shy of $110,000, but features an astounding 294 mile range before it needs to be recharged or the battery pack swapped out. Elon Musk is really pushing the envelope with the Model S, as it can go from 0-60 in only 2.78 seconds with 532 horsepower, but still gets more than 90 miles per gallon. Wow! 

3. Audi R8
When automotive journalists call you “the less exciting Lamborghini,” you should probably take it as a huge compliment, especially since the sexy and sleek R8 will be available for $170,000 instead of Lamborghini prices. You won’t be sacrificing much, as Audi equipped this 2017 concept release with a sizzling V10 and electric clutch, making shifting so smooth it purrs. Many high-end car lovers will still opt for the nearly identical Lamborghini Huracan because of bragging rights, but the Audi R8 holds its own for those who want something different.

4. Lincoln Continental
While Lincoln has been lagging in sales and popularity in recent years, Ford’s Luxury Brand wowed the crowd at the 2015 New York Auto Show with a full-size model concept car. Well, that future is here, as the new Lincoln Continental will blend traditional elements we love in Lincolns with a luxurious modern design. Expected to hit showrooms by 2017, the 305-400 horsepower Continental will look to revive the brand’s resurgence at a starting price tag of only $44,560 (up to $62,000 for the Black Label model.)

5. Acura NSX
It may have taken Acura a long time to roll out this concept car since it was introduced in 2012, but it was worth the wait, with a turbocharged V-6 working in conjunction with a hybrid electric motor for each front wheel! 

The NSX will debut in late 2016 or early 2017 with a sticker price of around $150,000.

6. Mercedes S-CLass Coupe
We may be familiar with Mercedes-Benz’ S-Class coupes since their release in 2014, but the 2016/17 S-CLASS COUPE will be based on a brand new design platform, featuring a modern streamlined body style with full-LED headlamps, classic grille, sport slimmer taillights and 19-inch alloy wheels. The interior will have an equally impressive upgrade with hand crafted leather upholstery, an expanded cabin, and dazzling tech enhancements like a 12.3-inch entertainment screen, navigation system, 13-speaker sound system, Bluetooth audio, USB ports & phone connectivity, and rearview camera – all for a $121,550 MSRP.

7. Ford GT
It’s hard not get excited about the 2017 Ford GT, a super car with an twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V-6 engine that delivers a riveting 600 horsepower! Unfortunately, you’ll pay handsomely for each and every one of those stallions, as 2017’s GT will have a $350,000 price tag, the highest yet for the venerable American car company. But for those who want to stand out (and zoom by) the sleek and low-sitting design is a stylish departure from Ford’s muscle car past…and well worth it

8. Chevrolet Bolt
Leaving other electric cars with limited range in the rearview mirror, Chevrolet’s 2017 Bolt will boast a range of over 200 miles before it needs a charge. It takes a full charge in only 9 hours and boots a rounded, aerodynamic and lightweight body style with a surprisingly comfortable interior with all of the tech you need, and only for around $30,000.



9. Jaguar F-Pace
Jaguar’s first cross over SUV still has “the DNA of a sports car” and should become Jaguar’s most popular model fairly quickly considering an anticipated starting price of $42,390, up to $48,000 The Jaguar F-Pace is the Prestige loaded model. Its 180hp Diesel V6still boasts over 370 horsepower, but this time in a comfortable SUV with a respectable 33.5 ft³ cargo area. The Jaguar brand is synonymous with luxury, and now it looks like the F-Pace will be a successful crossover based on Car and Driver’s 5/5 rating, Edumunds; 4.4/5, and The Car Connections; 5/5.

10. Ford Fusion Energi 
Ford will continue it’s bold and aggressive reinvention with the very affordable Fusion Energi, coming in at $33,120 starting and $41,000 for the Platinum edition. The Fusion Energi blends Ford’s comfort and clean lines with plug-in electric efficiency, featuring a hybrid lithium-ion battery that easily plugs in, teaming up with its 141-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine for a total of 188 horsepower. It has a new and improved grill, trim, LED lights, and redesigned 17-inch wheels, and upgraded nav and interior display tech, but the best feature is still its stellar fuel efficiency of 95 MPG city and 81 MPG highway.
