It seems that people are always talking about cars of the future and what automobiles will be like in a few years. We go on about self-driving, electric, and even flying cars. But the truth is that there are plenty of advanced, super high-tech vehicles already available today. Many cars on the road right now feature an array of impressive technology, gadgets, and gizmos. For people who love technology and are early adopters, there are plenty of options available. While they may not fly (yet), here’s a look at the 10 most advanced or high-tech vehicles available in today’s marketplace, and the technology that makes them standout.
10. GMC Sierra Denali 1500
Most people don’t think about technology when they consider a pick-up truck. They think about towing ability, shock absorbers, tire treads, and a durable body. But many pick-up trucks today are as technologically advanced as any other vehicle. Case in point is the GMC Sierra Denali. Cool features to be found on this model of pick-up truck include a wireless charging pad, collision warnings, and automatic high-beam lights for night driving. The vehicle also comes tricked out with a Bose sound system that uses active noise-cancellation to keep the cabin comfortably quiet. And there is even a special haptic vibration system built-in that tells the driver when the truck is straying too far to the left or right. This is all impressive stuff, and at a starting price of just over $50,000, the GMC Sierra Denali is not that much more expensive than other, less sophisticated, pick-up trucks.
9. Volvo S90
Volvo claims that its S90 sedan is loaded with more technology than any other vehicle on the road right now. We’re not entirely sure if that’s true, but the S90 certainly makes a convincing case for being one of the most advanced cars you can purchase today. The safety features on this car alone are extremely impressive, with pedestrian, cyclist, and animal detection systems, as well as an auto braking feature that remains active up to 80 miles per hour and road edge detection. There’s also parking assist and headlights that automatically bend to illuminate curves in the road at night. Of course, the S90 also has plenty of fun technology too, notably a nine inch touch screen connected car system with Bluetooth for connecting all your devices and generally feeling that you control the universe. Starting price is just under $47,000.
