New York Auto Show

Don’t worry, the Ford GT is still stunning

Don’t worry, the Ford GT is still stunning

Ford has done nothing new with the 2017 Ford GT, but it looks so tremendous in cherry red here at the New York Auto Show that it would be a crime not to show you. It's been more than two years since the automaker revealed its reborn-classic, driving the all-new GT onto the stage at the Detroit Auto Show in 2015. It's only this year that the first of the production cars will actually arrive in buyers' garages, though.

If the 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo can’t convince you wagons are sexy, it’s hopeless

If the 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo can’t convince you wagons are sexy, it’s hopeless

It's an oddity of American automotive taste: people who write about cars invariably love wagons, while the public which actually buys cars does not. Automakers have been forced to try all manner of tricks and sleight of hand - witness the trend of jacked-up crossovers - to try to get the US to warm to the wagon, but if all else fails you can call it something different and hope nobody notice. Audi did it with the "Avant", and it's just what Porsche has done with the 2018 Panamera Sport Turismo.

The 2018 Lexus LS 500 F SPORT gets the detailing spot-on

The 2018 Lexus LS 500 F SPORT gets the detailing spot-on

Lexus' F SPORT trim has been a runaway success, with a sizable percentage of the company's sales in the US being the sportier models, and the 2018 LS 500 F SPORT should be no different. Unveiled at the New York International Auto Show 2017 this week, it's an opportunity for the Japanese automaker to demonstrate how it can take on the BMW 7 Series, Mercedes-Benz S Class, and Audi A8's in the parking lot. With no horsepower improvements, however, the F SPORT badge means handling tweaks and, more noticeably, styling changes. Read on for some of the highlights.

Why Cadillac Super Cruise out-Autopilots Tesla’s autonomous tech

Why Cadillac Super Cruise out-Autopilots Tesla’s autonomous tech

Cadillac's Super Cruise may be a practically invisible change on the 2018 CT6, but the semi-autonomous driving system is actually one of the biggest announcements at the New York International Auto Show. It's intended to take control of the luxury sedan on the roads where drivers get most bored, highways and freeways, and though it may only be Level 2 autonomy, it wraps up a number of hands-off technologies that could give drivers the confidence that rival systems lack. I caught up with Barry Walkup, Super Cruise Chief engineer at Cadillac, to find out why.

The 2018 Acura TLX’s most important change is inside

Car infotainment is a dark art, and getting it right is tougher than you might think. Happily, the 2018 Acura TLX hasn't just revamped its exterior styling - most noticeably with the new family snout - but introduced a significant improvement in the dashboard. It's called the On Demand Multi-Use Display, and it's a noticeable change over the old infotainment system.

The Toyota FT-4X Concept is a Millennials’ toy truck made real

The Toyota FT-4X Concept is a Millennials’ toy truck made real

Toyota clearly hasn't given up its toy box, as a Tonka truck come to life is really the best way to describe its FT-4X concept at the NYIAS 2017 this week. Pitched as an "always ready" SUV for city-dwelling Generation Y drivers, the chunky 4x4 can't resist every automaker's current obsession: Millennials. As Toyota sees it, they're looking for "Rugged Charm".

Lincoln has revealed its next taste of American Luxury in the shape of the 2018 Navigator, a full-size SUV that doesn't stint on chrome. Unveiled today at the New York International Auto Show 2017, the 2018 Navigator borrows heavily from the Navigator Concept shown off last year, though drops some of the more eye-catching details of that show car. Nonetheless, this isn't an SUV you'll miss on the road.
