It may come as a surprise to some but 2013 marks the 113th (!) anniversary of the New York Auto Show. From March 29 until April 7, the Jacob Javits Center at New York City will host the third major international auto show of the year on U.S. soil, in four levels and nearly 900,000 sq ft.
Even though it comes right after Geneva, the NY show isn’t short on premieres – though, admittedly, the most important of them are targeted to the North American market.
If Geneva was the hypercar show, then New York is certainly the SUV one, with Toyota, Acura, Land Rover and Infiniti launching the Highlander, MDX, Range Rover Sport and QX60 respectively. Oh, and of course, Chrysler’s brand new, controversially styled 2014 Jeep Cherokee will also make its world debut in NYC.
Last, but not least, the Hyundai group will unveil the new Equus sedan and the revised Kia Optima Hybrid and VW its new Golf in normal and GTI versions.
As always, the list that follows will be updated constantly so keep an eye on this page for any new info.
