In addition to a slew of sports cars and other expensive sheetmetal, the New York International Auto Show played host to the launch of no less than half a dozen SUVs and crossovers. Indeed, with gas prices sinking and road trip season upon us, the time is right to show off all of the big family-hauling adventure-mobiles. So let’s take a look at some of our favorite cars, trucks, and SUVs that debuted at the NYIAS this year, or were at least new to us.
Ahhh. Spring is in the air and new cars are starting to hit the streets. So what better place to see all the latest and greatest vehicles coming our way this summer and beyond than at the New York International Auto Show? Luckily for us, Javits Center is just the place for us to get up close and personal with all of the latest models from Ford, Nissan, Subaru, Mazda, Cadillac, and many, many more. Some highlights of the show included Nissan’s Rogue Dogue, which featured a dog-friendly ramp as well as an onboard grooming station for your favorite pups, as well as Lincoln’s production version of the long-awaited Navigator that not only looked stunning but packs a serious punch with a 450-hp Ecoboost V6 borrowed from the Ford Raptor under the elegant hood. It seems NYIAS was a very SUV-intensive show this year, giving us our first look at the Subaru Ascent concept, a 7-seater SUV that was first teased in Los Angeles last year as the VIZIV-7 styling exercise. On the sportier side of things, Cadillac brought out their DPi-V.R. race car that has swept the first three races of the year in the IMSA series, including the 24 Hours of Daytona, the 12 Hours of Sebring, and the recent Long Beach Grand Prix.
