While any auto show is exciting, the 2016 New York Auto Show is an event at the right time in the right place this year. There’s so much buzz about new car technology lately, which moves rapidly from innovative ideas to soon-to-be reality. New concepts are emerging faster than ever, it seems, and technology continues to ramp up its own game. The New York Auto Show had plenty of reveals, concepts, and unveilings of its own. From the drawing table to the showrooms, this show had an attention-getting mix of cars to showcase.
The New York Auto Show is abuzz with live coverage from the press, sneak peaks and new unveils. Whether you’re looking to spend $16,000.00 on a Chevy Sonic or drop over $60,000.00 on a Porsche Boxer, you’ll find a little bit of everything.
The new model for 2017 shows off more horsepower – 565 horsepower is nothing to sneeze at – and more torque with its 3.8 liter, twin-turbo V-6 with the potential of doing zero to 60 in 2.7 seconds. The exterior of the car sports a sharper image while the interior has an airier touch. The 2017 GT-R while offering more horsepower still maintains a quieter ride.
Nissan Mixes it up with both old and new
While everyone will be flocking over to the New York Auto Show to see what’s new, there are a handful of car enthusiasts who are just as happy to see something old. Nissan has offered an older collection of the Skyline line for viewing dating back to the late 1960s.
The GT-R 1969 C-10 Skyline might just be every car enthusiasts’ favorite. If you grew up in the 1970s era, then maybe the 1973 Skyline 2000 GT-R is your pick for favorite. If you’re an 1980s/early 1990s child, then you can reminisce as you peer into a 1989 R32 GT-R
Toyota Prius Prime
Toyota unveiled its Prius Prime. Toyota is introducing the Prius Prime as one of the best hybrids around with the best range. With a bigger battery pack, the Prius can go up to 22 miles with electric mode. Not only has it outdone its previous model, it also boasts being the best hybrid for MPG, range, and MPGe of all the plug-ins.
Chevy Camaro ZL1
Just like there are sports fans that will follow their team – win, lose or draw – there are also automotive fans who will follow their brand throughout the years. For Camaro fans, they will enjoy getting a peek at the Chevy Camaro ZL1. The ZL1 boasts a 6.2 liter V8, but also gets to boast its first 10-speed automatic transmission or standard six-speed manual. All that and possibly a lighter weight makes it a Camaro fans dream view.
While some autos seek to improve and advance only in one or two areas, it seems that the Subaru Impreza might be seeking to advance in all areas. Supposedly, the new design will accommodate more redesign in both the interior and the exterior, as well as upgrading its technology and increasing its horsepower.
