The Annual New York Auto Show is the ultimate showcase of the latest automotive trends across the world. This year brought us more than four floors of displays from the world’s leading automakers featuring approximately 1,000 new vehicles and concept cars.
Here are just some of the redesigned vehicles that made their stunning debut at the 2018 New York International Auto Show:
Toyota premiered their long-awaited fifth-generation RAV4. Last redesigned in 2013, this new and improved version features the Toyota New Global Architecture modular platform, a four-cylinder engine and eight-speed automatic transmission. Toyota’s crossovers have been taking on a more masculine look, but this redesign has given the vehicle a more distinctive appearance.
The C-Class coupe and convertible made their debut at the New York Auto Show, both with AMG C43 models. The coupe and drop-top hold two-liter, four-cylinder engines with the ability to produce 255 horsepower, while the AMG version features a three-liter V-6 engine with 385 horsepower. All include a new driver assistance technology.
Lincoln brought back the Aviator with a complete redesign based on the Ford Explorer large crossover, both expected to arrive in showrooms in 2019. Last sold in 2006, the Aviator is making a comeback with an electrified powertrain option and is just one of two models that Lincoln will produce in the next two years.
GMC Black Edition
Making its first appearance earlier this month, the redesigned Sierra full-size pickup has already shown us new industry technologies. However, GMC featured Black Edition 2019 models of both the Terrain Impact and Acadia large crossovers. These sleek models included aluminum wheels, roof rails and grille. Though labelled the “Black Edition,” these vehicles will be available in a variety of colors.
