The UPPAbaby Cruz stroller underwent a major makeover when it was updated to the Cruz V2 model. In fact, so many changes were made in 2020 that none are planned for 2021.

The UPPAbaby Cruz V2 continued into 2021 with no functional differences, although UPPAbaby has a couple of color changes in store for the new year.

The Cruz V2 model looks like a different stroller than its predecessor, with changes like larger wheels for added maneuverability, a bigger basket for extra storage and a roomier seat for a growing toddler. Learn about all the upgrades in this UPPAbaby Cruz V2 vs. UPPAbaby Cruz comparison.
