  • 2019 Maserati Levante Trofeo, 2018 New York auto show

    According to Ricky Bobby, it was Eleanor Roosevelt that said "America is all about speed. Hot, nasty, badass speed." Italy's Maserati has taken that quote to heart. That's why the automaker decided that the New York International Auto Show is the perfect place to show off its new Levante Trofeo super SUV, which was previously thought to be a Levante GTS. There's no V-6 between these fenders. This Levante Trofeo packs a muscular V-8 that just so happens to be built by Ferrari. Sitting in the nose of this very sporty utility vehicle is a 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged V-8. In fact, this engine has...

  • 2019 Kia K900, 2018 New York auto show
    2019 Kia K900 pushes the flagship sedan into more premium territory

    Kia believes it's set a new standard for Korean luxury, and such ethos resides within the 2019 K900, the brand's redesigned flagship sedan. Kia attests everything is new, redesigned, and fresh aside from the car's actual name. At its local debut Wednesday at the 2018 New York auto show, the K900...

  • 2019 Acura RDX, 2018 New York auto show
    2019 Acura RDX adds to brand's SUV momentum

    Acura hasn't had success with its sedans in recent years, but the SUVs have carried the brand. Judging by the looks of the 2019 Acura RDX, that trend will continue. We saw the RDX prototype in January in Detroit, and the production model unveiled at the 2018 New York auto show on Wednesday is...

  • 2019 Cadillac CT6, 2018 New York auto show

  • 2019 Nissan Altima, 2018 New York auto show

    There's a new Nissan Altima coming to showrooms this fall as a 2019 model, and it made its debut on Wednesday at the 2018 New York auto show. The car represents the sixth generation for the Altima nameplate and a core pillar of Nissan's sales strategy here in the United States. The 2019 Altima brings a bold look, available all-wheel drive, and Nissan's VC-Turbo variable compression engine that we first saw on the 2019 Infiniti QX50, but it still misses out on hybrid tech that rivals offer. That may change at a later date, however. The standard powertrain is a 2.5-liter inline-4 delivering 188...

  • Classic Mini with electric powertrain
    Classic Mini made electric for New York auto show

    Mini didn't have a new car to present at the 2018 New York auto show. Instead, it had an old one. A very old one.

    Toyota on Wednesday introduced an all-new, fifth-generation RAV4 at the 2018 New York auto show.

  • 2019 Audi RS 5 Sportback, 2018 New York auto show
    Baby got back: 2019 Audi RS 5 Sportback debuts in New York

    As much as we love Audi Sport's latest RS 5 coupe, the car's two-door body is definitely a limiting factor. Which coupe owner doesn't feel a tinge of pain folding down the front seats whenever friends or family, muddy shoes and all, have to climb into the back? The solution is the new RS 5...

  • Lincoln Aviator SUV, 2018 New York auto show

    More than a decade on since the nameplate bowed out of production, Lincoln's Aviator is finally back. Unveiled Wednesday at the 2018 New York auto show, a new Aviator SUV carries the influences of the Continental and Navigator and takes things further, providing us with a better view of Lincoln's future. That future is one filled with more SUVs and electrified powertrains. The Aviator shown in the Big Apple is said to be a “preview” of the production model due on sale in 2019. In other words, it's likely a lot more representative of the upcoming production model than your typical...

  • 2019 Cadillac XT4, 2018 New York auto show
    2019 Cadillac XT4 crossover SUV looks good, feels like more of the same

    The 2019 Cadillac XT4 has a lot riding on its shoulders. Cursed with a sedan-heavy lineup—there are four sedans to just two utility vehicles—the XT4 is the vehicle that finally opens Cadillac to the luxury market's most lucrative segment, the compact crossover class. The XT4 uses a...

  • 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4

    For years the subject of rumors, GMC has finally introduced its first model designated an AT4, short for All-Terrain 4-wheel drive. The first model is the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4, which was revealed Monday ahead of a formal debut on March 28 at the 2018 New York auto show. Think of it as Chevy's new Silverado 1500 Trail Boss dressed in a suit. According to GMC's Duncan Aldred, we'll see an AT4-branded version of every vehicle in the GMC lineup within the next two years. But what exactly does AT4 mean when applied to a GMC vehicle? The answer is a combination of genuine off-road capability...
