Mercedes-Benz's "M-Class" nameplate is no more, replaced instead by "GLE". The new GLE, which is essentially an updated version of the current M-Class, was revealed overnight and makes its world debut next week at the 2015 New York Auto Show.

Another vehicle appearing in the Big Apple will be the all-new Kia Optima. Kia says the new Optima will offer multiple engine choices, and we hear one of these may include a plug-in hybrid setup.

BMW’s M2 based on the 2-Series coupe is almost ready for its world debut. The latest prototypes are wearing barely any camouflage gear.

You’ll find all of these stories and more in today’s car news, right here at Motor Authority.
