Best Strollers for 2023 - When is the best time to buy?

You may not have known that many strollers are marketed by year just like cars. Each year brings major new releases and product updates across the industry. And like cars, sometimes the updates are purely cosmetic, and other times the updates are major platform overhauls. I know for me, it’s always so frustrating to buy an expensive product just for the newest version to come out a month or week later. So if you’re shopping for strollers in 2022 and 2023 this article will help map out the best time of year to purchase your stroller. 

Before I go into the specifics by make and model, I want to point out that there are two trade shows to pay attention to:

The Kind + Jugend (K&J) baby gear expo in Cologne, Germany is typically where huge brands like Thule, UPPAbaby, Bugaboo, and many others showcase their upcoming launches. K&J happens in September so manufacturers can launch new products the following March/April after Chinese New Year.

The ABC Kids Expo, in particular for US consumers, is the other trade show to watch. This American trade show is usually held in Las Vegas in May. While relatively few launches happened at ABC 2022 we did see major debuts in the Veer Switchback convertible stroller and the UPPAbaby Mesa Max infant car seat.

But not all launches happen in March/April and not all strollers get updates. In fact, with COVID, there have been much fewer changes and updates recently as many engineers and designers haven’t been able to freely travel from their country of origin to China where the bulk of strollers are manufactured. 

Here are the major baby gear brands with the most recent updates for 2023, and what my current predictions are for their changes!

UPPAbaby Strollers 2023

UPPAbaby used to use the annual calendar like clockwork, show new Vista and Cruz strollers in fall and deliver in the spring, but since COVID things have not been like that.

UPPAbaby Vista V2 2023

UPPAbaby VISTA V2 Stroller New 2021 | 2022The V2 version of the UPPAbaby Vista debuted right before Covid at Kind + Jugend 2019. Since then it hasn't had any major updates to its platform. In the summer of 2022 they released the new Anthony color, a white and grey chenille, also available on the new Uppababy Mesa Max Infant Car Seat 2022. UPPAbaby is still TBD about attending Kind + Jugend 2022. 
It wouldn't surprise me if the UPPAbaby Vista V2 platform goes without changes for 2023. But they’ll likely discontinue some of their 2022 color fashions to make way for one or two new spring 2023 fashions. You can still see the current UPPAbaby Vista V2 2022 here and sign up for alerts about the UPPAbaby Vista V2 2023 here!

UPPAbaby Cruz V2 2023

The UPPAbaby Cruz V2 also debuted at Kind + Jugend 2019 (for a 2020 release) and hasn’t seen any updates since. The 2020 update was pretty substantial though, in addition to receiving the same XL sun canopy update as the Vista V2, UPPA added improved suspension, and larger wheels. 
In my best guess, I'd say the UPPAbaby Cruz V2 2023 will probably release a new color or two, but I’d be surprised if there was much more. You can still see the current UPPAbaby Cruz V2 2022 here and sign up for alerts about the UPPAbaby Cruz V2 2023 here!

UPPAbaby Minu V2 2023

The UPPAbaby Minu V2 just came out in the spring of 2022, so I wouldn't be surprised if it stayed exactly the same for 2023. You can still see the current UPPAbaby Minu V2 2022 here and sign up for alerts about the UPPAbaby Minu V2 2023 here!

UPPAbaby Ridge 2023

UPPABABY Ridge jogging stroller in noa indigo with aluminum frameThe UPPAbaby Ridge for 2022 launched in October of 2021 and has three fashions. I’d betting that UPPAbaby will have plans to add another fashion and maybe discontinue the current fashions but don’t hold me to that. You can still see the current UPPAbaby Ridge 2022 here and sign up for alerts about the UPPAbaby Ridge 2023 here!

UPPAbaby G-Luxe, G-lite, and G-link 2023

UPPAbaby G-LUXE Stroller 2021 | 2022 in Aiden blue on aluminum silver frameThese strollers are way less popular than the more versatile Uppa strollers mentioned above so it’s hard to predict what direction they’d go in if changes are made. The UPPAbaby G-Luxe, UPPAbaby G-lite, and UPPAbaby G-link from 2022 are still current for this year. You can still see the current UPPAbaby G-Luxe 2022UPPAbaby G-lite 2022, and UPPAbaby G-link 2022 here; and sign up for alerts about the UPPAbaby G-Luxe 2023UPPAbaby G-lite 2023, and UPPAbaby G-link 2023 here!

 

Nuna Strollers 2023

One of the nice things about Nuna is that they rarely make physical changes to their strollers, but the downside is that lately, they’ve been making frequent changes to their colors. Here is what you can expect from Nuna in 2023.

Nuna Mixx Next 2023

Nuna Mixx Next Stroller 2021 | 2022 stroller, in camel and grey fabricsIn 2020, Nuna upgraded the Mixx Stroller to the Nuna Mixx Next 2022 which added improved suspension as the marquis update (check out our video review of the Nuna Mixx Next updates). No changes have been made since then but a new colorway called Riveted was added in the summer of 2022. I would be surprised if there were any more updates to this stroller until at least spring of 2023. You can still see the current Nuna Mixx Next 2022 here and sign up for alerts about the Nuna Mixx Next 2023 here!

Nuna Demi Grow 2023

Nuna DEMI Grow Stroller with Aire Canopy | 2022 in black fabricThe Demi Grow Stroller with Aire Canopy 2022 has had very few updates over the years, so we don’t expect any major changes for 2023. They did however add the Aire Canopy in the spring of 2022 as well as add the Hazelwood color option. That is probably going to suffice as an update, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they add a new color or two in 2023. You can still see the current Demi Grow 2022 here  and sign up for alerts about the Nuna Demi Grow 2023 here!

Nuna TRIV 2023

Nuna Triv Stroller 2021 | 2022 in frost grey The Nuna TRIV 2022 got a magnetic buckle update in the summer of 2022 as the most recent major update to the TRIV platform. I wouldn’t be surprised if they add a new color in 2023, but I'm not expecting much more at this time. You can still see the current Nuna TRIV 2022 here and sign up for alerts about the Nuna TRIV 2023 here!

Nuna TRVL 2023

Nuna TRVL Stroller 2022 in lagoon tealNuna’s smallest stroller launched in the fall of 2022. They added new colors to the Nuna TRVL 2022 recently, but since it’s such a new stroller, any major changes would be a shock. You can still see the current Nuna TRVL 2022 here sign up for alerts about the Nuna TRVL 2023 here!

  

Bugaboo Strollers 2023 

For many years, Bugaboo strollers have stayed somewhat static with few updates to their platforms and little innovation, but times have changed. We have seen new products, and updates to their core line over the past few years. Let’s see what we think Bugaboo has in store for 2023.

Bugaboo Fox 3 2023

Bugaboo Fox3 Complete Stroller 2021 | 2022 blue on aluminum frameThe Bugaboo Fox 3 2022 had several updates that separated it from the previous year’s Fox 2 2021 (discontinued) so it’s unlikely that there will be a big update for the rest of 2022. So far I'm not predicting any non-fashion updates in the near future. But I’ll be watching out for any new announcements at Kind + Jugend. You can still see the current Bugaboo Fox 3 2022 here and sign up for alerts about the Bugaboo Fox 3 2023 here!

Bugaboo Donkey 5 2023

Bugaboo Donkey5 Duo Complete Stroller Mineral Washed Black 2022The Bugaboo Donkey 5 was just behind the Fox3 launching in January of 2022, and they made some pretty significant changes to that platform including a new folding mechanism, so it it would be a real surprise if there were any significant changes in the next year. You can still see the currenBugaboo Donkey 5 2022 here and sign up for alerts about the Bugaboo Donkey 5 2023 here!

Bugaboo Bee 6 2023

Bugaboo Bee6 Complete Stroller 2021 | 2022 in yellow canopy on black frameThe Bugaboo Bee 6 came out in fall of 2020 with larger wheels as the premiere update, but that platform rarely gets updated so I’m not predicting any major changes. Although I wouldn't be surprised if there was some kind of fashion upgrade in 2023 to have the Bee 6 2023 look more like the Bugaboo Donkey 5 2022 or Bugaboo Fox 3 2022. You can still see the current Bugaboo Bee 6 2022 here and sign up for alerts about the Bugaboo Bee 6 2023 here!

Bugaboo Butterfly 2023

Bugaboo Butterfly 2023The Bugaboo Butterfly 2022 launched in the summer of 2022, and is a red hot in terms of popularity. They are just trying to keep up with demand, so I'd be surprised if we saw any updates in 2023 as it’s so new. You can still see the current Bugaboo Butterfly 2022 here and sign up for alerts about the Bugaboo Butterfly 2023 here!
  

Babyzen Strollers 2023 

The Babyzen company was just sold to Stokke in 2022, for the moment I'm betting that Stokke will wait for their operational dust to settle before making any changes to their Babyzen YOYO2 2022 stroller.

Babyzen YOYO2 2023

Babyzen YOYO 2 Stroller 6+ 2022 in aqua canopy on black frameThe Babyzen YOYO2 2022 was originally released in the spring of 2020, and we have not seen any updates to their stroller since. They did launch the Babyzen YOYO Connect attachment in the spring of 2022. With the new Connect launch and a new brand owner, I'm not letting my hopes get too high for any changes to either Babyzen YOYO stroller. You can still see the current Babyzen YOYO2 2022 here and sign up for alerts about the Babyzen YOYO2 2023 here!
 

Bob Gear Strollers 2023

Bob Strollers rarely see significant updates so I would be surprised if we saw any physical updates for their strollers in 2023. You can still see the current BOB Revolution Flex 3.0 2022 or BOB Alterrain Pro for 2022, and BOB Revolution Flex 3.0 Duallie 2022 here. And you can sign up for alerts about the BOB Revolution Flex 3.0 2023BOB Alterrain Pro 2023, and BOB Revolution Flex 3.0 Duallie 2023 here.

Thule Strollers 2023 

Thule typically doesn't put their strollers through annual upgrades, favoring major overhauls every few years instead.

Thule Shine 2023

Thule Shine Stroller 2022 in mallard greenThe Thule Shine 2022 just debuted in the middle of 2022 so we’re probably not going to see an update for the Thule Shine for 2023. You can still see the current Thule Shine 2022 here and sign up for alerts about the Thule Shine 2023 here!

Thule Urban Glide 2 2023 and Thule Spring 2023 

Thule Urban Glide 2 jogging Stroller 2021 | 2022 in majolica blueThule Urban Glide2 2022 and Thule Spring 2022 may see a fashion update for 2023 but I would be surprised if there were mechanical updates for 2023. You can still see the current Thule Urban Glide 2 2022 here and Thule Spring 2022 here, and sign up for alerts about the Thule Urban Glide 2 2023 and Thule Spring 2023 strollers!

 

Bumbleride Strollers 2023 

Most of the mechanics haven’t changed but the 2022 models will see upgrades to the parking brake, bumper bar; along with new colors, up-cycled fabrics made from even more plastic bottles, and plastic free packaging. The world wide shipping delays are ongoing so have flexible expectations when you see these listed as August/September/October.

Bumbleride Indie 2023 & Bumbleride Indie Twin 2023

bumbleride indie strollerIn a rare Summer season release, the updated Bumbleride Indie Twin 2022 began shipping in early August 2022 with the Dusk color shipping in October. The Bumbleride Indie 2022 (single) is expected to ship in September 2022, but remember shipping delays are common. Right now I'm not expecting any additional changes or updates for 2023. I think now is a good time to buy the Bumbleride Indie 2022 for your Fall/Winter babies especially. You can still see the current Bumbleride Indie 2022 and Bumbleride Indie Twin 2022 here.

Bumbleride ERA 2023

It’s expected that the Bumbleride Era 2022 will be released in September 2022 but expect possible delays. I would be really shocked if we saw more updates for 2023. You can still see the current Bumbleride Era 2022 and sign up for alerts about the Bumbleride Era 2023 here!

Bumbleride Speed 2023

Two new colors are also coming. Supernova will be a navy color blocked with southwestern color accents and Ironman with blue accents on a sporty gray. With these updates coming so late in 2022 I'm not betting on any more changes in 2023. You can still see the current Bumbleride Speed 2022 and sign up for alerts about the Bumbleride Speed 2023 here!
   

Silver Cross Strollers 2023  

Silver Cross Wave 2023

Silver Cross Comet 2023

Silver Cross Comet Stroller Eclipse Special Edition 2021 | 2022The Silver Cross Comet hit the American market in 2021 and hasn't had any changes since then.
