As much excitement as the auto shows in Detroit and Geneva have created so far this year, the New York Auto Show is shaping up to be equally impressive. Following what we’ve seen at recent auto shows, the bright lights of the Big Apple will be focused on plenty of luxury and performance vehicles, but the full breadth of new model introductions will span from a sub-$15,000 Korean-made hatchback to a 1,700-horsepower, American-made hypercar (with a hefty dose of skepticism).

Of course, as with any major auto show, there may be some big surprises, but we won’t have to wait much longer. Media days for the auto show are April 1st and 2nd, and doors are open to the public until the 12th.

2016 Cadillac CT6

After much anticipation, the 2016 Cadillac CT6 will finally make its big debut in New York. Cadillac’s new full-size, rear-drive sedan will finally put Cadillac back in the luxury conversation alongside cars like the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7 Series. Cadillac has remained tight-lipped about what we can expect from the CT6, but it did reveal that the sedan would debut a new 3.0-liter twin-turbo V-6 that is estimated to produce around 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.

2017 Lincoln Continental

Although there is still no official confirmation, it looks like Lincoln is ready to spark a brand renaissance when it introduces its own flagship sedan next week — the rear-wheel-drive 2017 Lincoln Continental. This launch in still a bit of a wildcard at this point, but it would make total sense. Not only would a new Continental surely steal some – if not most – of the spot from the Cadillac, but it would also happen on Cadillac’s new turf following last year’s announcement that it was moving its headquarters to SoHo.

2016 Jaguar XF

Rounding out the lineup of luxury sedan launches taking place in New York, the 2016 Jaguar XF might be the sexiest. Looking like a stretched version of the Jaguar F-Type, the new XF has a more aggressive look than the current model and it should offer improved performance, thanks to a drop in curb weight of up to 265 pounds. At launch, the 2016 XF will have two supercharged V-6 engine options and the choice of rear- or all-wheel drive.

2016 McLaren 570S Coupe

The all-new 570S is McLaren-speak for entry-level sports car. This coupe is the first member of the new McLaren Sports Series, and it is powered by a 3.8-liter V-8 that produces 562 horsepower. The flying buttress evident in this image is likely just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how wild the 570S’ design will be.

There are plenty of big names that will be vying for attention next week in New York, and while Lyons Motor Car might not have a recognizable name, it does have a big idea. The New York-based startup is hoping to produce America’s first hypercar to go up against the likes of the LaFerrari and Koenigsegg One:1. There is still a huge question mark as to whether this car will even be made, but its 3,100-pound curb weight and 1,700-horsepower twin-turbo V-8 is enough to get our attention.

2016 Ford Focus RS

Hot-hatch enthusiasts in the U.S. rejoiced when the 2016 Ford Focus RS debuted at the Geneva Motor Show, and next week, they will get their first chance to see the car in the flesh as the souped-up hatchback makes its North American debut. The existence of the car is one thing, but Ford is still withholding key details about the Focus RS, including its starting price, expected performance capabilities and, the most anticipated detail, engine output. Ford is saying that the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine will produce “at least” 316 horsepower, while recent rumors put the number at 345.

2016 Infiniti QX50

Without so much as a teaser image to go on, it’s hard to say what the 2016 Infiniti QX50 will look like, but judging by recent Infiniti designs, it is sure to be a looker. Since its debut in 2007 (as the EX), this crossover has always come off looking and feeling more like a hatchback version of the then-G sedan, which definitely isn’t a bad thing. If Infiniti can come close to replicating that with this second-gen QX50, then it should be an entertaining entrant in the mid-size luxury crossover segment.

Note: Current QX50 shown above

2016 Lexus RX

The Lexus RX helped spark the popular luxury crossover segment when it was introduced in 1998, and Lexus looks to rewrite the segment with the completely redesigned, fourth-generation RX. Based on the single teaser Lexus released, the 2016 Lexus RX will have a different design with its stretched C-pillar and sloped roofline.

2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class

Was it the M-Class or was it the ML-Class? We’ll never have to worry about that again. Mercedes-Benz will debut its new mid-size crossover, and it will be renamed the GLE-Class to better fit in with Mercedes’ latest naming convention. The overall styling was revealed last year with the GLE Coupe, but the more conventional GLE-Class has a boxier roofline for more passenger space.

The current, second-gen Range Rover Sport made its grand entrance at the New York Auto Show just two years ago, and now the same stage is set for the latest model to be added to the ever-growing lineup. Following the debut of the high-performance Range Rover SVR and the new diesel models (which are coming to the U.S.), this year’s New York show will be used to unveil the stylish new 2016 Range Rover Sport HST Limited Edition. The highlight of the HST is the dark accents added to the exterior, including the smoked headlights and 21-inch wheels.

2016 Nissan Maxima

Following a brief cameo during this year’s Super Bowl ads, the all-new 2016 Nissan Maxima will finally get its big entrance in New York. The car’s exterior design was revealed in Nissan’s emotional “With Dad” commercial, but we can expect the full battery of images and specs next week.

2016 Kia Optima

The entry-level mid-size sedan segment is probably one of the most competitive out there right now, so to keep up with the Toyota Camry, Hyundai Sonata and Ford Fusion, the 2016 Kia Optima will be making its world debut. As expected, the new Optima is based heavily on the Kia Sportspace Concept that was revealed at the Geneva Motor Show. Kia says that the 2016 Optima will be available with multiple engine options, the interior will be more spacious, and it will offer more premium features than the current model.

2016 Chevrolet Malibu

Chevrolet is also bringing a high-volume mid-size sedan to New York with the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu. Teasers for the new Malibu suggest a sportier and more attractive design, and Chevrolet says the sedan will feature a Volt-based hybrid system good for 45 mpg on the highway.

2016 Chevrolet Spark

In addition to the new Malibu, Chevrolet will also launch the 2016 Chevrolet Spark concurrently at the Seoul and New York auto shows. Chevrolet has only revealed a shadowy image of the next-gen Spark, but the automaker promises that the subcompact hatchback will sport a design that is sleeker and more progressive.

2016 Scion iA

After years of suffering with a mostly stagnant lineup, Scion is about to debut two new models. Sticking with the recipe that helped form the youth-oriented automaker, the 2016 Scion iA is essentially an Americanized version of a Euro-spec Toyota hatchback – in this case, the compact Toyota Auris. Other than the tC coupe, the iA will be the first new hatchback for Scion since the xB and xD models were introduced in 2007.

2016 Scion iM

In its relatively brief history, Scion’s lineup has offered its customers either hatchbacks or coupes, but that will change for 2016 as Scion plans to roll out its first-ever sedan: the all-new iA. Scion says that the “A” in iA stands for accommodating and aggressive, and the latter can definitely be seen in the rendering shown above.

After two generations of offering limited-production electric vehicles, Toyota will finally be getting a mass-market green car with the all-new RAV4 Hybrid. There is no other additional information about the RAV4 Hybrid yet, but like all Toyota hybrids, expect stellar fuel economy with a minimal price premium.

2016 Mitsubishi Outlander

When Mitsubishi launched the third-gen Outlander, its reception was a resounding thud, but the 2016 Outlander looks to do something about that. Borrowing the stylish design from the XR-PHEV Concept, the new Mitsubishi Outlander could finally start to make a dent in the mid-size crossover market.

2016 Hyundai Tucson

Like the Focus RS, the 2016 Hyundai Tucson was revealed in Geneva, but Hyundai’s third-gen compact crossover will get its North American debut in New York. The big news here will be the official specs for the North American Tucson models, but Hyundai will probably hold off on announcing pricing until closer to the on-sale date later this year.

Note: European-spec Tucson shown above
