Now that we've reached the summer near Cedar Rapids, it is not too early to look toward the new year. At least when it comes to the latest updates and additions to the models we showcase at Junge Automotive Group in Hiawatha, IA. With multiple locations to shop, we bring you a great variety of models to explore. Our new inventory consists of the latest from Ford, Lincoln, Volvo, Mazda and BMW. But there is so much more to look forward to in 2023. Let's look at what drivers from Iowa City to Coralville can expect in the new model year.

New Ford Trims on the Way

In the past couple of years, for has turned the tide for truck lovers with the innovative Ford F-150 Lightning and the compact Ford Maverick. The F-150 goes even further in 2023, with the addition of the Ford F-150 Rattler. Thrill-seekers in Center Point, IA, can expect an impressively stylish, off-road focused version of the popular truck. It takes the idea of being built "Ford Tough" even further with skid plates, enhanced traction, all-terrain tires, and standard four-wheel drive for an exciting drive every time you get behind the wheel in Marion, IA. Expect this new addition to make its first appearance in Hiawatha, IA, this fall.

Ford's most popular SUV gains a new version. The all-new Ford Explorer Timberline is another crossover with adventure in mind. It comes with off-road suspension, skid plates, and additional ground clearance. It sports a unique look from its more established versions, with a unique front grille and performance auxiliary lights. Even the cabin gets a significant upgrade with more standard, advanced technology making an appearance.

Lincoln Expands Lineup

Ford isn't the only brand making some exciting additions to the roster in 2023. Lincoln is set to introduce its first subcompact SUV to the team in the form of the 2023 Lincoln Caspian. It starts with a mild-hybrid, 155-horsepower powertrain and front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is available, as is a more robust Inline-three engine worth 197 horsepower. It is small in stature, but big on luxury, as it contains all the elegance, you expect from a Lincoln in a more compact package. It should make its appearance later this year.

More Efficient Mazda on Deck

Another brand going smaller but more impactful is Mazda with the all-new Mazda CX-50. This subcompact is big on power with an available 256-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine. A hybrid model is also on the horizon for the CX-50. The cabin is spacious enough for five people to ride comfortably in style. Inside you'll discover all the high-tech features you expect from a Mazda, like a large touchscreen and smartphone integration. As a comparison, the all-new CX-50 is slightly bigger than the subcompact CX-5, already available at Junge Automotive Group.

Familiar Volvo Names, Even More Efficient

When it comes to Volvo, you typically know what you are going to get. A stylish, reliable brand that elevates your commute. So, you will recognize all the names Volvo releases in 2023, but you haven't seen what they can do. Volvo promises to have more efficient versions of each model in 2023. Each member of its lineup will be available in either a mild-hybrid, hybrid or electric version. These updates will also include Google services built-in and get over-the-air updates. The change is another step in the brand's effort to move fully toward electric vehicles by the next decade.
