2017 New York Auto Show A-Z Debut Guide

Carscoops’ handy guide to all the world and North American premieres appearing on the floors of the 2017 New York Auto Show.

Being placed between the mother of all car shows in Geneva at the beginning of March and China’s increasingly influential, Beijing and Shanghai auto shows that alternate each year taking place in April, is far from ideal, leading some manufacturers to choose one or the other for their world debuts, but the NY auto show remains one of the most significant shows in the industry.

Several models soaked up the limelight at this year’s event, starting with two performance-orientated editions, the new Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and Honda’s first-ever Type R performance model for North America, based on the new Civic hatch.

On the more casual, family-friendly front, Buick has two long-anticipated debuts, the new Regal sedan and a replacement for the aging Enclave SUV, while Toyota refreshed the Sienna minivan.

Check this space as we will be constantly updating the list with all the latest reveals as they happen.

Notes: F/L = Facelift


  • Nordschleife

    The Ford Explorer is getting another facelift. Hmm

    • Harry_Wild

      Right on clue with the Range Rover Sport’s face lift! I just hope Ford does a F150 dash and center stack for the Explorer! If they did that; I would buy the Ford Explorer! I just think that the current dash design is bland niow and not to my liking compare to the F150/Expedition design language! It would not cost Ford anythng since it comes from the same parts bin!

      While Car Scoops has it listed as a “facelift” this will actually be an all new model debut, as the D3/D4 platform it’s based on will be retired soon.

      • Six Thousand Times

        And not before time.

  • Adi

    So basically all of these debuts are not confirmed or not announeced.

    • JohnCarscoop

      NA was for North American debut (we just removed it since some readers confused it with Not Announced, even though we listed it in the notes). In regards to unconfirmed premieres, I think you can see that we’ve been spot on for, if not all, most cars (i.e. Navigator, the Fusion pursuit, the Sonata). Update – actually, only the S-Class facelift wasn’t revealed at the show, though it did make a quick appearance at Merc’s NYC media event on Tuesday.

      We use NC (Not Confirmed) when we have credible information without an official announcement.

    This is gonna be a great show this year. So many great (hopefully) new cars coming out. I didn’t realize a new Navigator might be coming out as well as ANOTHER refreshed Explorer. I know an all new Navigator is on the way (desperately needed) but the Explorer…. Ford needs an all new one, NOT another refresh.

    • Harry_Wild

      Will not happen until the new Range Rover Sport is release! Ford’s Explorer takes it design from the RRS! I think a new one will be in 2019! Just want makes the Explorer successful!

      • john1168

        I don’t think the Explorer and the RRS share anything. The RRS has a longitudinally mounted engine and the Explorer is transverse. I believe the Explorer shares it’s platform with the Ford Taurus. So I think we’re stuck with the current Explorer until Ford replaces the Taurus. Now I don’t think there’s gonna be a new US Taurus for at least a long time so the next Explorer can be based on the Chinese Taurus or remain the same or be based on a totally new platform.

        • Harry_Wild

          It actually a Volvo platform that Ford got when Volvo was own by Ford!

  • BlackPegasus

    Is April 12th the official unveiling of new and/or facelighted models?

  • IFDU

    Well here’s some camo shots of the Enclave, so we get a better shape/idea of what’s to come. IMO it seems like it will be the better looking of the GM full-size crossovers once again: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/afcc63d7c05e19759c278f8f5ef3ed45df4ef74bbee21be52c89267face45f46.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/b8471093c32dc83725655ac661fa43e75ee233b1f83054f88f0099099c9e959c.jpg

    It will be interesting to see if the somewhat updated Acura TLX will actually have amber coloured ‘parking lamps’ [is that what they are?] up front.

  • Craig

    I would love to see an all new Acura Legend. [replacing the extraordinary unpopular RLX] With an ALL NEW for Acura ‘design language’ and the turbocharged V6 from the NSX. A 500 hp flagship sedan [that looked great] would certainly put Acura back into the game.

    • Infinite1

      I think a sports coupe that doesn’t cost over 6 digits will also help their cause

  • mick

    Don’t forget Lexus RX 7 seater

  • Sean Sweeney

    Ford Fusion police responder HEV concept https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f9493e923750cfe6f01c18eaa0deee16aca182f79dee52f6f71b5127b44b1992.jpg should be built off of the Chinese Taurus seeing that it isn’t warranted in the US for public consumption…they can use is for Special Service!

    • john1168

      I guess they’re gonna do the same thing Chevy is doing with the Caprice.

  • Craig

    The one that interests me the most – if it shows up – is the new Navigator. [If it’s more ‘production’ than ‘concept’]

  • U8INIT

    The Infiniti will be best in show…nothing design wise will be able to sit it down. I’ll wait…💅🏿

  • Harry_Wild

    Forgot about the Subaru Ascent?

  • Auf Wiedersehen

    Dodge Demon…what a waste of good metal with a pointless joke from you guessed it, FCA. I think Tim Kuniskis, head of FCA brands in North America, getting excited by it’s ban from NHRA for no roll cage shows the level of incompetence in yet another American car company. So it’s marketed as the most powerful production car ever built and for enthusiast drag racers that can’t use it on the race track. Home run boys! Put it in hands of customers who now have to go spend a crap ton MORE cash to make it legal to actually USE as intended. Reminds me of the design lead for the Camaro telling of the groundbreaking Flowtie or Ed Welburn talking to Jay Leno about the C7 design clearly having no idea about design let alone the C7 design….these people in charge are clueless.
