Yes, Motor Authority’s editors are hitting the road again, this time heading to metro New York for the city’s annual auto show in order to bring you the latest details, interviews and live photos and video.
First held in 1900, the New York Auto Show is the oldest-running auto show in the U.S., and one of the country’s biggest.
We’re expecting more than 1,000 vehicles to be on display in the Jacob Javits Convention Center where the event is held, and, in addition to this, nearly 100 individual events, conferences, industry forums, symposiums, award ceremonies, roundtables, and parties will be taking place during the press preview week, which this year kicks off on March 27.
That means more sneak peeks, more brand new '13 and '14 production models, and more concept vehicles than ever before. The show is also where the winner of the World and Performance Car of the Year awards is announced, which is now in its ninth year and increasingly becoming one the most prestigious awards in the global automotive industry.
Here’s a rundown of what you can expect this week. And remember, at any time you’ll be able to access the latest information from the show via this dedicated show page.

2013 Shelby 1000 S/C: Powered by the same supercharged 5.8-liter V-8 as the standard Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, but with extensive work done to bring it up to 1,200 horsepower, Shelby American’s new supercar muscle car set to debut in New York should be one of the major highlights. Full details will be revealed this week, so stay tuned.

2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport teaser
2014 Land Rover Range Rover Sport: A brand new Range Rover Sport, built on the same aluminum chassis found in the latest Range Rover, will debut in New York this week.
Despite being one of the world’s most congested cities, New York is the single biggest market for the Range Rover Sport, so it’s only fitting that this model debuts at the city’s premier auto show.
We expect the vehicle to feature at least 510 horsepower in range-topping trim, while at the other end of the scale we could see a 340-horsepower supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 offered (a diesel should also be offered overseas). Matched to these engines should be a standard eight-speed automatic transmission from Germany’s ZF.
In the lead up to the new Range Rover Sport’s unveiling, Land Rover has been teasing us with a number of videos and photos. You can access all of them by hitting the following links:
Only evolutionary updates have been made to the vehicle’s styling, but inside it will offer much more space. In particular, Acura promises more legroom for the second row and easier access to the third.
Only one engine will be available, a 3.5-liter V-6 with direct fuel injection and cylinder deactivation, but customers will have the choice of front- and all-wheel drive models for the first time.

2014 BMW 328d: If you’ve been dying to see BMW offer a diesel in its latest F30 3-Series, you only have a few days left of agony as the automaker has confirmed that it’s bringing its new 328d sedan to the New York Auto Show. Fitted with a 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine, BMW’s 328d will generate 180 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, which the automaker says is enough for a 0-60 mph time of 7.2 seconds and fuel economy in excess of 40 mpg. Though it won’t be displayed in New York, word is that the BMW 3-Series Sports Wagon will also receive the diesel option here in the states.

2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid: Don’t get too excited. The QX60 isn’t a brand new model from Infiniti but simply its JX renamed under the automaker’s Q-based naming strategy. There is one new element worth mentioning, however, and that’s the new hybrid option that will be available on the popular seven-seat crossover. Peak output of 250 horsepower features on the 2014 Infiniti QX60 Hybrid, which is derived from a 2.5-liter supercharged engine and an electric motor.
2014 Jaguar XJR
2013.5 Chrysler 200 S Special Edition: Chrysler has teamed up with workwear specialist Carhartt, a fellow Detroit legend, to build a new special edition 200 S, which it was introducing midway through the current 2013 model year, hence the ‘2013.5’ classification. It gets a number of special features including sport-tuned suspension, 18-inch aluminum wheels, a steering wheel wrapped in perforated leather and a Boston Acoustic sound system.
