“Technology is really what’s driving new cars today. From the seemingly simple Apple CarPlay to the sophisticated augmented reality and adaptive cruise systems, technology is no longer an option.

If you pay close attention, you can start to see the personal automobile of the future take shape,” said Brian Moody, executive editor at Autotrader. “This year’s top advancements in auto tech encapsulate the unique needs we have seen consumers express this year, including a higher standard for entertainment, safety, and environmentalism.”

Best New Automotive Technology of 20211

2021 Cadillac Escalade
With the all-new 2021 model, the Cadillac Escalade has cemented its place as the American luxury brand’s showcase for new and luxurious technologies. Starting with the advanced Super Cruise, one of the best-kept secrets in automotive technology. It’s a semi-autonomous technology suite that is arguably the most advanced system of its kind since it allows for hands-free driving on the highway (you still need to stay alert and keep your eyes on the road). Super Cruise is now more advanced than ever on the new Escalade with the addition of lane-changing capability. The 2021 Escalade also boasts a curved 4K OLED display with a whopping 38 inches of total diagonal display space—one massive and beautiful display with three different screens.

2021 Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S
For 2021, the luxurious Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 S has arrived. This high-performance luxury SUV combines luxury, technology, and raw power in a graceful way that few other brands can match. Under the hood lies a twin-turbo V8 engine pumping out 603 horsepower. This engine is also equipped with an EQ Boost starter/generator mild hybrid system powering a 48-volt electrical system. It gives the engine a performance bump of 21 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque. It also makes for smooth and quick automatic stop/start technology which has been infamously clunky in some applications in competing brands.

2021 Rolls Royce Ghost
We know what you’re thinking, the new Ghost (all-new for 2021) is so expensive, no one can afford it. True, it is expensive, but that’s usually where leaps in technological advancement come from.  Also, the $300,000 Ghost has been the brand’s best-selling vehicle. In addition to the expected Rolls tech surrounding hand-crafting a car, the new Ghost has a few tech features that only serve to enhance its Rolls-Royce-ness. The Ghost’s “Flagbearer” system uses cameras to see the road ahead and adjust accordingly. The result is

With recent advancements in automotive technology and engineering, the current used market is better than ever. There’s almost as much variety on the used market as there is on the new market with cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, and even hybrids and EVs that have gone through depreciation making them stronger values.

Pros: The biggest pro of buying a used car is value. Like we mentioned earlier, a used car can lose a lot of its value in not a lot of time. If you really keep an eye out for which cars depreciate the fastest, it’s possible to get a used car that’s as little as three years old for less than half the price that is was when it was new.

With used cars being more affordable than their new counterparts, it brings a wider variety of options to drivers with a lower car budget. For example, a luxury car or a nice sports car can be accessible to a driver who might not normally have a budget for one until after it goes through a few years of depreciation.

Cons: There are always some gambles that come with buying a used car. If you buy a used car from a dealer, it’s likely gone through some kind of inspection by professionals to ensure it doesn’t have any major problems. If you’re buying from a private party, however, you’re taking a bigger risk and there might be some hidden problems that you could miss no matter how hard you look it over. Consider getting a pre-purchase inspection done by a mechanic before agreeing to buy a used car from a private seller.

One big reason people choose to buy new over used is because of the warranty you get with a new car. Unless you can get a used car warranty from the dealer you’re buying the car from or from a third party, non-certified used cars generally don’t come with a warranty. That means a used car might have a higher cost of ownership over a new car when you factor in maintenance costs. If you’re shopping for a used car and you’re not planning on it having a warranty, it’s a good idea to do some research on its reliability and cost of ownership.
