2019 NY Auto Show To Feature Debuts From Acura, Genesis, Mercedes And Porsche

The New York Auto Show kicks off four months from today and the event is already looking rather promising as it will include debuts from at least eight different automakers.

While details are limited, the show confirmed there will be new models from Acura, Genesis, Mercedes and Porsche. Mainstream brands will also have a big presence as there will be debuts from Kia, Nissan, Subaru and Toyota.

The show declined to elaborate, but there are a few likely suspects. Acura’s debut could be the 2020 TLX Type S which was recently seen being tested against the Audi S4 Avant and Mercedes-AMG C43. Looking far more aggressive than the standard model, the car could feature an all-new turbocharged V6 engine that is exclusive to the luxury brand. Acura has been tight-lipped about the powerplant, but has previously said it’s a “high-performance” engine which will be paired with a Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system.

The Genesis debut could be the brand’s first crossover as the GV80 concept was introduced in New York back in 2017. The model is slated to be launched in early 2020 and previous reports have suggested the crossover will be offered with V6 and V8 engines. Of course, Genesis could also use the event to introduce the US-spec 2020 G90 or something else entirely.

The Mercedes debut is a bit more mysterious, but it could be the all-new GLS. The model is expected to be larger and more luxurious than its predecessor and it should adopt a number of features from the 2019 GLE.

Moving onto the Porsche debut, it could be a version of the all-new 911. Porsche offers a dizzying array of 911 variants and spy photographers have already caught a number of them including the 911 Cabriolet, 911 Turbo and 911 GT3.

Of course, time will tell what the automakers have in store for New York and we’ll have a better idea of what to expect in a few months.

    For sure, 911 Cabrio, Mercedes GLS and Acura TLX T-Type S. Detroit is all domestics this time around so it will be a good wait for April to see new import iron.

    The Genesis better be the crossover. They need that big time as it should make them a lot of money.

    And I hope it will be the TLX type s for Acura. They lost their mojo a long time ago and this would help to bring it back… as long as they don’t screw it up.

    Can’t wait for the TLX Type S. I love the old 3rd gen TL Type S, not with the SH-AWD which is awesome and turbo V6 it’s shaping up to be something great.
