Knowing Honda, a production-esque Ridgeline concept wouldn't be out of the question.

Optima?? I haven't heard if they would - but the timeline makes sense

Honda typically shows a production-close concept or the actual production model in the Spring and puts it on sale in September. Timeline seems right for it to be the Ridgeline.

Looks like it's shaping up to be a really exciting event at the 2015 New York Auto Show, it appears to be the most premieres and debuts ever! I can also say the same for Detroit and Geneva this year, too, both standouts, and even Los Angeles in the fall of last year, too. Chicago gets a little lost in the shuffle, or I can say it's more in the shadows of Detroit, Geneva and New York, but it has it's moments, where it's mainly facelifts released, as well as some new production models, mostly. The beauty of the New York Auto Show is that it's the only one that I go to in person, and I usually head to it twice a year. A lot of highlights at New York this year, and, it's also answered that the next-generation/6th Generation 2016 Chevrolet Camaro won't be there, for it has it's own exclusive day and debut on May 16th. That's OK for there's plenty more to look forward to!

The name of the new Scion sedan will be iA.

Both it and the iM hatch teased ahead of New York:

Rumor has it the iA is the sedan that Toyota collaborated on with Mazda, based on the 2.

I don't get Toyota's fascination w/ the cheezy 1980's Cylon face on their new cars.

hence discussions about seeing a production-close concept, which would make sense if production debuts at LA in or NAIAS 2016 as a 2017 model ;)

Slightly off topic, but how is New York show compared to NAIAS? Was at NAIAS last year, was not impressed. Will be in New York just in time for a show and wondering if it's worth it.

I haven't been to NAIAS so I can't directly compare, but I've been to NYIAS three or four times, and loved it each time. It seemed like it used to be the last hoorah for production models stateside during auto show season, but it seems like it's only gotten more important as the years have gone by, with more production and concept debuts.

I'd highly recommend it! Much like NAIAS though (I'm sure), be prepared for TONS of people.

I've been to both (but not NYIAS in a few years). I think NYIAS is better. Since its a later show in the season you get to see all the debuts from the previous shows plus whatever debuts there. The hall definitely feels bigger than the Cobo Center. Also, the carmakers seemed to mostly bring cars that fit the demographic/location of the show, so there were sooo many trucks and SUVs as opposed to regular passenger cars in Detroit. For example Chevy had like multiples of all their SUVs/trucks while carrying like 1 of each of their regular cars, and Honda's hydrogen concept they debuted for the press was AWOL for the actual show. The automakers seem to bring more variety to NY because of the bigger space. Like, there is a separate hall downstairs where some more automakers usually are (Kia, Subaru come to mind) and that is where the other brands put their trucks, as opposed to the main hall.
Also, and like I said I haven't been in a few years, but I swear the luxury brands had all or most of the cars unlocked to sit in in NY, but at Detroit a lot of them were locked (all Porsches locked and I swear I remember vividly sitting in a 911 in NY, some Mercs locked, etc.).
Theres also fun things to do at the NY show, like the Camp Jeep ride along thing, and the electric car test track.

I was also disappointed McLaren skipped Detroit as I wanted to see their cars and the people who work for them are generally very nice and wonderful to talk to, from my experience. Also I'd be surprised if Jim Glickenhaus and SCG aren't in NY.


Oh and also once you're done you have Manhattan at your disposal, while when you finish with NAIAS you have...Detroit.

Nonetheless, it's a lot to look forward to this year, as well as much of what had debuted at other venues earlier this year. I'm also hoping that the Lincoln debut listed is the MKS, be it a production or a production-close concept.

Infiniti's vehicle will be a facelifted QX50 (former EX) that is apparently based on the long-wheelbase QX50 currently sold in China.

That's disappointing. Was looking forward to the Q60 coupe. Makes sense business wise though.

Lincoln Continental concept confirmed (no pics yet):

http://wwwqa.lincoln.com/ Click "Future Vehicles"

This is a "qa" site that Ford uses to test new content before going live. For some reason they are open to the public and many scoops/leaks have come from them over the past year or so.

Confirmed here as well: http://mdev.lincoln.com/continental-concept/

That's great, and hoped news, regarding Lincoln's debut for the 2015 New York Auto Show, what is said to be a "Continental" concept, which is likely to point the way toward the next-generation MKS sedan, or the MKS replacement. I'm just hoping that it's something that will be a thinly-veiled production-model, like the MKX concept was to the new-generation production model, something with shaved door-handles, slimmer outside-mirrors, and a little more concept detailing. It's still not known, at this point, if it will be rear-drive, or a front-drive-bias all-wheel-drive, but it should be large, sleek, and nicely proportioned and detailed, of the latest MKX, and the MKZ are any indication.

I can see Lincoln pulling this off, and as a way of stealing some of Cadillac's thunder, with their highly publicized and anticipated debut of the CT6 sedan (though this will not be the flagship, for an even larger model - CT8? - is confirmed), and also Buick pulled a surprise at NAIAS in January with the Avenir concept, a cousin the the upcoming CT6, which appears production-ready, and it will show at New York, garnering attention to the Buick show-floor.

I'm also hoping that this will result in a next-generation Ford Taurus cousin, and a fairly-recent low-def spy-shot from China did appear.

That makes a pile of sense for them to do. Ford left $'s in the table by not doing an Escape Hybrid; especially with how well the Fusion Hybrid has done... I see those everywhere

Ok - how about we get a top 5 of the New York Auto Show? My personal:
- Lincoln Continental
- Chevy Malibu
- Honda Civic 'concept'
- CT6
- Optima

My top 6:
- Honda Civic Concept
- Jaguar XF
- Cadillac CT6
- Chevy Malibu
- Lexus RX
- Nissan Maxima

Luke warm:
- Lincoln Continental
McLaren 570S

Most disappointing:
- Kia Optima
- Scion iA
- Chevy Spark

Crash

I like what Kia did w/ the interior - but am luke warm on the exterior.

As for the RX...nothing against Toyota - I just hate that weird 80's Cylon face.

pjl35
04-06-2015, 04:23 PM
1. Scion iA
2. Scion iM
3. GMC Terrain
4. Infiniti QX50
5. Mitsubishi Outlander

I kid, of course. :)

I'd say my top 5 are:

1. Cadillac CT6 - It's nice to finally see Cadillac try and take this segment seriously.

2. Lexus RX - Best execution of the predator face to date if you ask me. Also beyond thankful that the last gen's interior is gone.

3. Lincoln Continental - Similar to the CT6. I'm not totally sold on this new design language, but anything is better than the MKS.

4. Honda Civic Concept - Happy to say goodbye to the current generation's faults.

5. Toyota RAV4 Hybrid - I'm not sold on its looks, or the facelift for the entire lineup, but a hybrid offering for this vehicle is long overdo and a welcome update.

I'd put the Malibu on this list if it had a face more reminiscent of the Impala. Otherwise, I just can't handle it. Same goes for the Maxima as of now.

The next-generation Kia Optima was not at the NYIAS, for the public show, but only there for the press-days. I looked for it when I was there last Saturday (4/4/15), and I had asked a rep, and she stated that it was only shown for press, and they want to revise and tweak it a bit more before it makes any further appearances. It must have undergone criticism for being a bit close to the outgoing model, from what I gather.

That right there is some pretty good news. Interesting to note that Kia is still in the baking period. Absolutely I understand that any changes that would happen would be very subtle.

As long as their solution is not MORE CHROME. I do not understand their fascination with that, Kia specifically.
