Black Friday is right around the corner. The CDC is advising you against spending time with your family this year, so there's plenty of time to cruise the car dealer lot and take advantage of a socially distanced car buying experience.

If you're looking for a used vehicle, Black Friday might be the perfect day to buy. iSeeCars analysis has found that there are 2.7 percent more deals on Black Friday than during traditional shopping days.

The 30 best used car, truck, SUV, and minivan deals for Black Friday 2020 are below. The results are from a survey of 1.8 million used cars currently listed for sale.

Ford redesigned the Explorer for the 2020 model year making it stronger, more capable, and more fuel efficient than before. It comes with a number of engine options, including the Explorer Hybrid model. The Explorer is roomy and easy to maneuver, but its infotainment system isn't as easy to use as other vehicles in its class. Last-generation Explorers are nearly as good as the fresh model.

No. 29 - Honda Civic (5.2% savings)

The Hyundai Tucson is the company's top-selling model in the U.S. and it's easy to see why. The Tucson is a bit more upscale than the Santa Fe though it only has two rows of seating. Its good cargo space and easy-to-use tech are also highlights.

No. 27 - Subaru Outback (5.3% savings)

Subaru Outback owners love their Subarus. The new Outback offers a ton of modern technology, but the versions that were just as fundamentally good. A wagon is always a good choice for families, and the standard all-wheel drive on the Outback makes it an even better option.

No. 26 - Ford Escape (5.4% savings)

The Ford Escape was completely redesigned for the 2020 model year. It features a cavernous cargo area, spacious seating, and easy low-speed handling. This Escape rides better than the last and its interior has been upgraded. The 2019 and older model Escape also offers a large amount of passenger and cargo space, as well as hardy interior touch points, which makes it great for families with young children.

No. 25 - Toyota Camry (5.4% savings)

The Toyota Camry reigns supreme for American buyers and it's easy to see why. Its looks are (finally) anything but mundane. The Camry's interior is plush and comfortable, and it comes loaded with a hist of standard safety and driver assistance features.

No. 24 - Chevrolet Equinox (5.5% savings)

The Chevrolet Equinox is quite a good compact SUV. It competes against some heavy hitters in the industry, but stands as the top-selling non-truck model in Chevy's lineup. It comes with a long list of standard and available safety technology, a good amount of cargo space, and comfortable seats. The Equinox is easy to maneuver.

No. 23 - Chevrolet Traverse (5.6% savings)

The Chevrolet Traverse is a competent three-row SUV that is favored by many Americans. Chevy has made the vehicle capable, but it's not an off-roader by any stretch of the imagination. The Traverse is available in a number of flashy trim levels though it doesn't have as many available packages as the Colorado or Silverado.

No. 22 - Chevrolet Trax (5.6% savings)

2020 Chevrolet Trax Photo courtesy of Chevrolet

The Chevrolet Trax is a city scooter that easily gets a driver around town. It is easy to maneuver on the road and park, and has an easy-to-use infotainment system. The Chevy isn't big on cargo space, seating, or power.

No. 21 - Nissan Rogue (5.6% savings)

2020 Nissan Rogue

The Nissan Rogue is a few years past its prime, but that hasn't stopped it from being a formidable choice for buyers. Nissan has given the compact SUV comfortable seats, a modern-enough infotainment system, and fuel efficiency. It's equally at home in the city on on the highway.

No. 20 - Nissan Rogue Sport (5.7% savings)

Known as the Qashqai elsewhere, the Nissan Rogue Sport takes the best parts of the Rogue and moves them into a smaller package. The model most varies from its big brother when it comes to second-row legroom and rear cargo space. It's also less powerful.

No. 19 - Acura RDX (5.7% savings)

With its agile handling, plush and premium interior, and aggressive looks, the Acura RDX is a top-seller in its class. The fuel-efficient family car is loaded with approachable technology and the current generation comes standard with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

No. 18 - Subaru Crosstrek (5.8% savings)

The Crosstrek isn't the most powerful model in Subaru's lineup, nor is it the most modern. It is a formidable subcompact that hits the nail on the head for many practical shoppers. With standard all-wheel drive, engaging handling, and gobs of cargo space, the Crosstrek is worth a test drive.

No. 17 - Nissan Pathfinder (5.8% savings)

The three-row Nissan Pathfinder is a wallet-friendly SUV with a smooth powertrain, good looks, and comfortable seats. The model is ready for a makeover which means that most of the Pathfinders you'll see on used car dealer lots today will be like the ones on new car dealer lots.

No. 16 - Volkswagen Tiguan (5.8% savings)

The Volkswagen Tiguan spearheaded the company's resurgence in the U.S. market as it moved from slow-selling cars to faster-selling SUVs and tried to put Dieselgate in the rearview mirror. The Tiguan is a favorite of buyers for many of the same reasons the Pathfinder is. Unlike the Pathfinder, buyers can get the Tiguan in either a two- or three-row format.

No. 15 - Subaru Forester (5.9% savings)

Practical adventurers love the Subaru Forester for its on- and off-road prowess, engaging drive dynamics, and massive cargo space. The fact that it's one of the safest vehicles sold today doesn't hurt either. New for 2020, buyers get standard rear seat reminder and lane centering technology, which first appeared in the 2020 Outback, is available.

No. 14 - Dodge Journey (6.1% savings)

Dodge no longer makes the Journey, but for years it was a favorite for family travel. The models were frequently loaned out a rental car establishments. When it was new, the Journey was perhaps best known for being a cost-effective three-row SUV.

No. 13 - GMC Sierra 1500 (6.2% savings)

Reviewers generally agree that the GMC Sierra has a great exterior but that its interior is lacking the refinement expected at its price point. Still, it's an incredibly capable truck. The Sierra 1500 AT4 matches off-road prowess with on-road comfort and towing/hauling capability while the Denali is the company's top-tier model.

No. 12 (tie) - Nissan Murano (6.3% savings)

The Nissan Murano is nearing the end of its generational run, which means that it's nearly the same today as it was seven years ago when the model was introduced. That also means that it carries over many of the qualities that made it such a favorite with buyers - a strong powertrain, comfortable seats, and stylish looks.

No. 12 (tie) - Ford Fusion (6.3% savings)

American buyers can't quit the Ford Fusion though they're about to have to. The model's run is up as Ford moves on toward electrified models and plans for the future. That doesn't stop the Fusion from being a good car, complete with comfortable seats and a responsive infotainment system.

No. 10 - Nissan Altima (6.5% savings)

No. 9 - Dodge Grand Caravan (6.6% savings)

The Corolla was redesigned for the 2020 model year and is now upgraded to fit nicely into Toyota's modern lineup. It can come loaded to the gills with high-tech features but its less premium models still don't feel like too much of a compromise. The Toyota Corolla Hybrid is about as fuel efficient as the Prius. Models before 2020 were a little less premium and fuel efficient but are still a good buy with high predicted reliability.

No. 7 - Kia Soul (6.8% savings)

Kia completely redesigned the Soul for the 2020 model year giving it ... more soul. Its funky exterior carries over to the interior where buyers can choose to turn the fun up a notch with various packages and high-tech features. The 2020 Kia Soul GT-Line Turbo didn't win many hearts at AutomotiveMap, but the Soul's lower trim levels, powered by the standard non-turbo engine did. Its predecessor was well-equipped and reasonably well-received by critics when it was new.

No. 6 - Toyota Prius (7.0% savings)

The Toyota Prius family of vehicles represents a fuel-saving line of quirky cars that give eco-conscious shoppers an untraditional option. The Prius and Prius Prime have similar footprints.

Kia redesigned the Forte for the 2019 model year. It comes equipped with a long list of standard features, big trunk compared to other vehicles in its class, and spacious seats.

The smallest car in Nissan's lineup underwent a makeover for the 2020 model year. Before that, it was a fleet special with a relatively low-rent cabin, good fuel economy, and a very basic exterior design. Since then, the Versa has gotten more horsepower, a far nicer interior, and been made stylish.

No. 1 - Chevrolet Bolt EV (10.1% savings)

New luxury car

BMW sends its V12 engine off in style

BMW will build its final V12 engine this June.

BMW

Most automakers are focused on building EVs and extracting the best fuel economy from gas engines possible, so it’s not surprising to hear that BMW is pulling the plug on one of its biggest and most iconic engines. In June 2022, BMW will build its very last V12 engine for use in a super-limited-production special edition 7 Series model. The ultra-rare cars will carry a starting price of $200,995.

BMW 760i xDrive The last V12 will power a very special (and very expensive) 7 Series car.BMW

Only twelve lucky customers will have the option to nab a V12-powered BMW, which will be called the M760i xDrive. Displacing 6.6 liters, the twin-turbocharged beast produces a massive 601 horsepower. An eight-speed sport automatic transmission and all-wheel drive are standard. BMW says the powertrain is strong enough to push the hefty 7 Series car to 60 mph from a standstill in just 3.6 seconds.

The final-run cars will feature little more than a special “V12” badge at the rear to differentiate them from standard 7 Series models. Inside, the car features a serialized plaque with the car’s production number out of the 12 units planned. The engine itself features a nameplate with “The Final V12.”

Beyond the badges, BMW’s 12-cylinder last-hurrah will come standard with 20-inch M double-spoke wheels, a choice of any available BMW full Merino leather color, M Sport brakes with black or blue calipers, a panoramic LED roof, remote control parking, a Bowers & Wilkins surround-sound system, and adaptive LED headlights.

BMW 760i xDrive Only 12 of the cars will be built, with a starting price of more than $200,000.BMW

Though it hasn’t been BMW’s most popular engine over the years, the V12 has been a part of the automaker’s catalog for 35 years. The first 12-cylinder engine showed up in 1987, producing 295 horsepower in the original 750iL sedan.

Updated premium crossover

2022 Infiniti QX50 picks up new standard features

The new QX50 gets more tech and safety features.

Infiniti

Infiniti is one of a handful of automakers that have continued developing and building cars instead of focusing only on higher-profit and much more popular SUVs and trucks. That said, Infiniti's catalog is crossover- and SUV-heavy. Its smallest and least expensive crossover, the QX50 gets a handful of new features for 2022, and today Infiniti announced pricing.

Infiniti offers the 2022 QX50 in five trims: $40,025 Pure, $43,375 Luxe, $47,825 Essential, $52,525 Sensory, and $57,975 Autograph. All trims get Infiniti's variable compression (VC-Turbo) engine that makes 268 horsepower and returns up to 26 mpg combined. The advanced engine shifts its compression ratio to match the driver's behavior. When more power is needed, the compression changes, and when efficiency is the priority, it changes again. It's a marvel of engineering, but it's not as fuel-efficient as a hybrid. Power reaches the front or all four wheels through a continuously variable transmission.

2022 Infiniti QX50 Pricing starts at around $40,000.Infiniti

Beyond the new standard features for 2022, buyers of the new QX50 will have to step up to the Luxe trim to get the most desirable features such as auto-folding exterior side mirrors, power lumbar support, and perforated leather upholstery. Standard comfort gear includes eight-way power front seats, dual-zone climate controls, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Infiniti stuck with its dual-screen infotainment configuration with the 2022 QX50. The top eight-inch screen handles wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto duties, as well as navigation. The bottom seven-inch screen handles vehicle controls, radio stations, and other settings. Though the system looks great and adds a high-tech feel to the cabin, two screens can be distracting and confusing while driving. The good news is that the QX50 gets an excellent 16-speaker Bose stereo starting with the Luxe trim.

2022 Infiniti QX50 ProPilot Assist and Wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto are now standardInfiniti

The 2022 QX50 hasn't been crash tested by either major ratings organization yet, but the 2021 model performed well. It earned Good ratings in crash testes and a Superior score for its standard crash prevention systems. The 2022 QX50 comes standard with Infiniti's ProPilot Assist system, which brings advanced adaptive cruise control functions that can center the car in its lane, brake, and accelerate. Other standard tech includes blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alerts, rear automatic braking, predictive forward collision warnings, and forward automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
