2016 Jaguar XF: With all of the excitement surrounding the arrival of the new XE small sedan, it’s easy to forget that Jaguar is also set to introduce a new generation of its XF mid-sizer in the very near future. The design of the exterior may not have changed much but underneath the pretty sheet metal are some significant updates that allow the new XF to weigh up to 265 pounds less than its predecessor in some trims. Under the hood, there’s a choice of two 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 engines: one rated at 340 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque, the other at 380 hp and 332 lb-ft. Both rear- and all-wheel drive will be offered, and we expect more powertrains to be launched later in the life cycle.
2016 Cadillac CT6

: The Cadillac CT6 is one of the most anticipated debuts of the New York Auto Show, and Cadillac has just honed the edge of our interest: the automaker has confirmed that the CT6 will pack a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 engine good for 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. If you’re not quite up to date with Cadillac’s new naming strategy, the CT6 is a largish sedan that will offer similar space and amenities to the smallest wheelbase versions of vehicles like the Audi A8 and BMW 7-Series. However, the CT6 isn’t Cadillac’s oft-rumored flagship. There will be one, or perhaps even two models positioned above it at some point.
2016 Lexus RX
: Lexus is working on a new generation of its RX, which we will see for the first time in New York. The new RX will share its underpinnings with the latest Toyota Highlander and may offer a seven-seat option for the first time. We know the vehicle will be growing in size compared to the current model, and it will be lighter, too, thanks to the use of aluminum in some of its construction. A single teaser image, shot from a high rear-three-quarter angle, shows what looks a lot like a coupe-style profile, with the C pillar swooping downward to become almost parallel with the rear fender.
2016 Infiniti QX50
: Infiniti is set to unveil an updated version of its QX50 next week, one that we believe will be similar to this Chinese-spec car unveiled late last year. The updated QX50 will feature a wheelbase increase of more than three inches, creating additional rear legroom and cabin space. Unfortunately, Infiniti’s QX50 dates back to the EX35 launched in 2007 so we would have preferred to see an all-new model unveiled.
2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE
: At the Detroit Auto Show back in January, we were treated with the reveal of the all-new 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe. But isn’t the GLE Coupe just a coupe-like version of the GLE (the new name for the M-Class)? It is, and we’ll be getting our first look at the non-coupe-like GLE in New York. The vehicle is essentially an updated version of the M-Class introduced back in 2012. In addition to some styling tweaks, there is also a new plug-in hybrid variant. Of course, there's also a high-performance version from Mercedes-AMG as well.
2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport
: In addition to presenting the new Range Rover Sport HST Limited Edition, Land Rover will also use the New York Auto Show to introduce a series of updates for the rest of the 2016 Range Rover Sport line. Among the changes is the addition of a diesel-powered HSE Td6 variant as well as improved connectivity and capability.
