2012 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque
The Evoque will be a third model for Range Rover, fitting below the stately, eponymous RR and the Range Rover Sport. It goes on sale mid-2011 at prices running about $40,000-$50,000. A five-door with the same wedge silhouette, which debuted at the 2010 L.A. auto show, will follow half a year after. Under the hood, there's a new 240-hp version of Ford's 2.0-liter Ecoboost four. Range Rover remains serious about off-roading, despite the positioning of the Evoque, and claims it will be class-leading -- though this presumably means the crossover class rather than SUV. Clearly the Evoque a departure for the British manufacturer: a lot more light-footed than the Range Rovers, a lot less utility than the Land Rovers. But that's the point. The company is sure it will open new markets and end up as its biggest-selling model of all.

Lincoln Compact Crossover
You can't have too many compact luxury crossovers, right? Lincoln's entry to this oversaturated segment will reportedly be based on the next-generation Ford Escape/Kuga, with unique sheetmetal and luxury touches. Once this Lincoln MK-something crossover arrives, don't be surprised to see the MKX grow in price and size.

Per Fiat boss Sergio Marchionne, Chrysler-Fiat is going to be converting the Jeep Grand Cherokee into a made-in-the-USA Maserati that should arrive in 2013. While the Grand Cherokee is a good starting point, it will have to be heavily refined and gussied up for trident duty.
