2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK Class: Mercedes-Benz is bringing an updated version of its GLK Class compact crossover, which not only offers fresh new styling but also a fuel-efficient diesel option. The regular GLK350 will still be on offer, and for 2013 is rated at 302 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. But the model we’re most interested in is the GLK250 BlueTEC, which Mercedes boasts is the world’s most powerful diesel-powered SUV equipped with a four-cylinder engine. It packs a 2.1-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel rated at 190 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque.
2013 Acura RLX: Acura will be showing a concept version of its next-generation RL, which may be renamed the RLX to match the naming practice used on the rest of the automaker’s lineup. Two different versions of this new RLX are expected be offered to customers: a regular V-6 model and a gasoline-electric hybrid model packing a detuned version of the advanced drivetrain pegged for the new NSX supercar due in showrooms sometime in the next three years. The new RLX is expected to go on sale this fall as a 2013 model.
