The Toyota RAV4 is one of the most popular crossover SUVs on the market. Having been on the market since 1994, we’d be surprised if it weren’t still around in the next 100 years. After all, if it isn’t broken, why fix it? Here, you can see some noticeable changes to the Toyota RAV4 and its futuristic design.
It looks both edgier and better suited for the outdoors. It’s also safe to assume that this vehicle operates on electric energy or some other form of clean energy like hydrogen fuel cells, given that there’s a mandate for automakers to produce at least 50% more new clean energy cars by the year 2030.
The BMW X3, a paradigm of luxury compact SUVs, combines sportiness with versatility. A century into its journey, the X3 will embrace sustainable mobility, featuring electric and hydrogen variants. And as you can see, the X3’s design will embrace the many facets of the future. Maybe even the capability of traveling off-world?
From its sleek but rugged exterior to those thick, deep-treaded tires, this BMW X3 of the future looks better built for the off-road, which makes it better suited to its name. It’s certainly possible that the X3 will move away from the crossover market and eventually become the SUV it was meant to be.
The Ford F-150 is the best-selling automobile on the market today. Around 653,957 trucks were sold in 2022, which speaks to its popularity. The vehicle’s reputation for toughness and reliability makes it one of the best pickup options for drivers, especially for those looking to haul and tow in and out of town.
The futuristic Ford F-150 looks even tougher than what we have now. From the rugged exterior to the sporty neon lights, this vehicle looks well-equipped to handle the troubles of tomorrow. Maybe we’ll have even greater towing power in 100 years on top of the zero emissions.
The Chevrolet Equinox is one of the most popular crossovers by Chevy to hit the auto market. Due to its solid performance, comfortable exterior, and sustainability, it has proved to be a competitive and affordable SUV. Families in need of the extra space, have really come to appreciate what it has to offer.
Perfect for a weekend getaway to the beach or lake or just getting the kids to sports practice, the Chevrolet Equinox is an exercise in versatility and practicality just as much as it is a joy to drive. It should definitely have a place in the future, or at least something a lot like it.
The Toyota Sienna is one of the most popular minivans on the market. And since parents will still need a vessel for taking their kids to soccer practice 100 years from now, we expect this model or something much like the Sienna to still be popular in that time.
This Sienna really has an edgier look that is lacking with most minivans on the market today. Most of them look quite similar to what was out 10 years ago. But it seems plausible that in 100 years from now, we’ll get something that looks a lot different than today.
Jeep Grand Cherokee
The Grand Cherokee is Jeep’s flagship SUV and remains one of the most popular mid-size SUVs on the market. In the future, according to AI, we can expect the familiar classic chassis design of the Grand Cherokee but with some futuristic touches and technology that will make it the SUV of tomorrow.
The origins of the Jeep Grand Cherokee date back to 1983, when the American Motors Company was looking for a larger successor to their standard Cherokee label. However, it didn’t make its debut until 1992. The model would become a huge success and it likely will be for many years to come.
The Ford Motor Company has been manufacturing the Ford Explorer for over 30 years. As a competitor against the Jeep Cherokee, it has proven itself as a worthy opponent rather than just a rip-off of what came before. That being said, we expect the Explorer and the Cherokee to be competing even 100 years from now.
The Ford Explorer of the future looks well-equipped to face any terrain. Whether you are colonizing on the moon or having a Mad Max-esque off-road race, the Ford Explorer should suit you well. This sportier design will likely appeal to a wider variety of drivers, too – especially if there are even more worlds to explore.
In its current iteration, the Subaru Forester is an affordable, fuel-efficient SUV that offers a composed ride on or off the road – especially thanks to all-wheel drive. And from the looks of it, according to AI, it doesn’t seem that will change much in the future. However, we can expect a more environmentally friendly version on top of all that.
Aside from a few exterior styling elements, this Subaru Forester looks much like the Forester we have come to know and love. While it probably won’t be as inexpensive as it is now, 100 years in the future, at least comparatively, it might be. Hopefully, we will all be making more money by then, regardless.
One of the most stolen cars in America, the Honda Civic is a reliable, compact car with one of the lowest rates of depreciation, making it great in terms of resale value. And there’s a reason for that. It has incredible reliability and superb performance that make it a go-to choice for drivers.
As the perfect commuter, the Honda Civic will stand the test of time. It’s already been manufactured for over 50 years, and it’s still one of the most popular models on the market, even as SUVs and trucks tend to dominate the competition. We look forward to this even cooler and sleeker design.
Now the second-most popular pickup truck on the market, the Ram 1500 has evolved considerably over the years. Currently powered by gasoline in most models, the truck will eventually transition to more sustainable forms of energy, whether that is electric, solar power, or hydrogen fusion. Whatever the future holds, the Ram 1500 is certainly tough enough to survive it.
The Ram 1500’s centenary marks a legacy of innovation, where tradition meets tomorrow, and a century of utility and elegance paves the way for the harmonious coexistence of mobility and nature. When you consider the future of the Ram 1500, there’s only that much more innovation to look forward to.
The Toyota Corolla, like the Honda Civic, has appealed to drivers due to its practicality, comfortable ride, and affordability. But the Corolla has always had the appeal of a more compact design because not all of us want to be driving around in a ginormous tank – and the sales numbers show that.
The Toyota Corolla of the future doesn’t look drastically different than what we have today, other than the neon lights straight out of a sci-fi movie, but why should it? It’s a practical, comfortable, and familiar vehicle design. Not everything needs to be so edgy and showy, after all. Sometimes, simplicity just works better.
The classic look of the Mini Cooper has been around since 1959, and we’re pretty sure people will still love the design in the next 100 years. That’s probably why AI doesn’t think the vehicle’s look will change much, either. While it does look a tad more modern, the changes are hardly drastic.
That being said, what’s under the hood will likely change due to the government-mandated electric vehicle push. Hopefully, we’ll have a better range by then and more efficient charging, especially for the sake of those who like travel a lot. Nevertheless, the Mini Cooper’s design should hold up well.
The Chevrolet Silverado is yet another popular pickup truck option in a market that seems to favor these types of vehicles. While often associated as the quintessential American vehicle, you really can’t dispute the practical use of a truck and its ability to haul things with ease and tow whatever your heart desires.
In the future, we can look forward to greater fuel efficiency, or rather no fuel efficiency, in favor of cleaner energy, but also the power required for towing and hauling even heavier loads than ever before. Plus, we’ll get these cool neon lights to go along with it. This truck looks pretty sick – not gonna lie.
Tesla Model Y
Tesla has only been around for a relatively short while now, but it seems to be making a pretty big splash in the auto market. It seems like where before you saw numerous BMW models, we are now seeing those replaced with Tesla cars – particularly the Tesla Model Y.
In 2022, the Tesla Model Y was one of the top-selling vehicles of that year. If Tesla can remain on the market and maintain the hype surrounding their Tesla Model Y, we will probably see them well into the future, and the future might look something like this. Hopefully, the batteries won’t be as expensive to replace by then.
If there’s one vehicle that has come to define what an off-road vehicle SUV is, it’s the Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep Wrangler offers an unparalleled off-road experience and incredible utility. It has a simple but practical design that drivers have come to love and instantly recognize. There’s no mistaking the Wrangler for anything else.
Given how iconic the Jeep Wrangler has become, it’s no surprise how little the look of it has changed. In 100 years, according to AI, it won’t change much in the future, either. Even the doors will still be removable. But if one thing is different, it will probably be even tougher than ever.
The Mazda CX-5 has become one of the Japanese automaker’s most popular models, and it has one thing in common with the other most popular cars on the market – it’s a crossover. And for those that don’t know, a crossover is essentially an SUV built on a car platform.
Thus, a crossover essentially looks like a car and SUV combined. It’s easy to see how the sporty design of the CX-5 appeals to consumers, so Mazda is unlikely to fix what isn’t broken. Even though this futuristic design bears a striking resemblance to what we have now, it still looks somehow sleek and fresh.
The Toyota Camry is such an established name at this point that the Camry of the future can pretty much go in any direction it wants. Here, we have a more sporty, performance car-like appearance that should easily set it apart from the competition. We can also see there are upgrades beyond just the exterior.
Most notably, we can see there are no grille marks, which means it’s generating very little heat. It might be running on electric energy or something else entirely. It’s difficult to say. 100 years is a long time, considering most of us won’t be alive, but relatively, it’s not that long considering we are still using gas powdered cars after a century.
As a direct competitor against the Camry in the mid-size car market, it would only make sense that the two rivals would go for the sportier look at the same time. The Honda Accord takes it a step further with the stylish lighting in the front, like we’ve seen with some of the other cars on this list.
Performance-wise, we can’t really speak for either car with any foreknowledge, but we’re sure that these cars of the future will blow you away, regardless. The Honda Accord has been out since 1989, and it undoubtedly has many years of innovation to look forward to that will bring it into the future.
Like the Chevrolet Equinox, the Honda CR-V is a crossover that is dominating the market. Offering tremendous reliability, innovative technology, and a roomy interior, it’s everything you want in a crossover, making it the perfect driving experience, particularly for those with families. Flash-forward 100 years, and here’s what AI predicts…
The Honda CR-V of the future takes on a bolder new design of the future, but we can expect it to be just as reliable and practical as the models of today – unless Honda undergoes some significant production changes. Nevertheless, this CR-V looks just as you’d expect a vehicle of the future to look.
The Ford Mustang is now one of the last remaining muscle cars on the market. With the Camaro, Charger, and Challenger all in their final year of production, Ford will have to work hard to keep the Mustang alive but will have to embrace the technological advancements of the future to do so.
The Mustang has changed dramatically over the years, much to the dismay of classic car enthusiasts, but at the same time, that’s what has kept it alive. The Ford Mustang of the future looks to give drivers everything they want in a dream sports car without it looking like your dad’s mid-life crisis dream sports car.
