It might not be fair to go from the 2020 Ford F-150 straight to the 2020 Toyota Tundra, as the latter looks somewhat less desirable in juxtaposition. Regardless, the truck is a reliable piece of work and Toyota clearly worked hard to make it a decent competitor in the tough market of pickups. So far, critics aren’t sure whether to praise or criticize the Tundra because it’s quite a mixed bag of a truck.
One the one hand, the Tundra has a very good looking exterior design, excellent off-road performance and 401 pound-feet of torque. On the other hand, its interior leaves a lot to be desired especially when you compare it to other 2020 pick up truck options. The gas mileage of the Tundra is quite honestly awful, with 13 miles per gallon in the city, and finally, the powertrain is not even close to Ram, Chevrolet or Ford – with a towing ability only 10,200 pounds. The 2020 Toyota Tundra performs decently as a work truck, but if you’re looking for something more, then a Ford-150 or a Ram 1500 would likely be a much better option, albeit at a higher cost.

The Porsche Cayenne is the automaker’s gift of combining both an SUV and a sports vehicle into one incredible driving experience. This has been similarly done by other popular car manufacturers such as the Mercedes GLC and the BMW X6, although there’s undoubtedly something very unique about the Cayenne, most likely in its ability to perform with the same intensity and glam of the 911 while also feeling very protected and daring inside its hunky exterior frame.
The Cayenne’s engine is a turbocharged V6 three-liter beast that produces 335 horsepower and 332 foot-pounds of torque, which is not surprising considering that it was originally designed by Audi. If you’re really brave and looking for the best performance the Cayenne offers, you can go for the upgraded version that includes a terrifying twin-turbo V8 four-liter engine that gives you a 541 horsepower, a 40% increase in strength to an already powerful engine. There’s not too much new in the 2020 version of the Cayenne except the usual small improvements here and there. The 2020 Porsche Cayenne starts at $66,800, the Cayenne Coupe is $75,300, and the Turbo Coupe starts at a whopping $130,100.

The 2020 Toyota 4Runner is arguably one of the best vehicles your family can have if you're planning to take that intense desert and mountain vacation you've always talked about but never seemed to commit to. Imagine a modern mid-size SUV with 270 horsepower and excellent cargo capacity that can withstand everything from rough terrains to messy mountains.
Unfortunately for the 4Runner, the troubles don't start when you're actually offroad — they start on the way there. It seems that the 4Runners strengths, which include its rugged build and fantastic suspension, are actually its biggest problems in normal day to day driving. When you're on regular paved roads, the steering feels stiff and challenging. The 2020 4Runner integrated a variety of improvements to the vehicle's safety systems, including driver-assistance and pre-collision preventing through automated breaks. In summary, if you're looking for an excellent off-road vehicle to take specifically on tough terrains you'll be very pleased with the 4Runner. For all other uses, it'd be best to give this one a pass.

Ram has always been known for having some of the biggest and baddest trucks on the market. The company has virtually dominated everything relating to trucks for many years, with Ford and Chevrolet only occasionally picking up the pace when competing. This is because Ram is focused almost exclusively on one thing — making the best trucks possible, and their new 1500 is one beast of a truck. The first thing to note about the 2020 Ram 1500 is that it has officially switched to diesel. It also has an improved torque of 480 pound-feet which is a very respectable amount.
The truck performs very well whether you’re on the road or on tough pavements. It also has a very well optimized cargo management and can tow up to 12,750 pounds using its 5.7L HEMI V8 engine that uses Torque Hybrid Technology to further boost its potential. Inside the cargo, you'll find some of the most luxurious and advanced systems in its class. The 2020 Ram 1500 is officially one of the world's most advanced pickups in-terms of technology, with a 12-inch touchscreen, digital cluster display, active noise cancellation, a terrific sound system with 19 speakers, dual-pane panoramic sunroof and very comfortable seats. If you’re looking to buy the absolute best half-ton truck, you should definitely put the 2020 Ram 1500 on the top of your list.
Alfa Romeo Tonale
Predicted Cost: $35,000
In this day and age of environmental awareness and Tesla opening the electric car markets wide open, we’ve seen a huge rise in the number of hybrids and electrics that are being produced. It seems like every month we’re hearing of new production and concept for electric vehicles that’s going to change the world and almost all major car manufacturers have jumped into the eco-friendly car game. When Alfa Romeo announced their 2020 Tonale, many reviewers said that it “stole the show”. The new hybrid from the acclaimed and unique automaker is shaping up to be one of their most interesting creations.
The Tonale has long headlights, a uniquely low grill and a unique look that reminds us of a Nissan Juke. In terms of power, you’re looking at a 1.3 liter gas engine with an electric motor that helps energize the rear wheels and give the car 296 horsepower. In summary, the Tonale is a very pretty concept car that might just become the company's most successful compact crossover. It has a very promising future and we’re hopeful that the feeling of expectation will only increase among consumers and critics as more details come up in the near future.
