Some very important cars will be revealed next week at the New York Auto Show. A host of major automakers will be hosting press conferences, from Acura to Volvo. Even though the “major reveals” schedule has been cut from two days to one, there are still some important revelations:
- The 2019 Toyota RAV4, one of the best selling crossovers in the world, will make its global debut in New York on March 28 at 9:10 am. The fifth generation is likely to continue Toyota’s dominance of the USA small-crossover market.
- The 2019 Toyota Corolla hatchback, now with a 2-liter engine that’s less dated than the meager 1.8 in standard Corollas; maybe these cars don’t excite you, but they sell better than just about all sports cars combined.
- The 2019 Subaru Forester’s world introduction may hold some excitement… or not. Hard to know now!
- Cadillac’s new CT6 and CT6-V have a brand new V8 engine that some claim will make its way, with some changes, to Chevrolet. The car and engine have already been shown, though.
There may be more excitement; these are just the reveals we know about. What will Volkswagen, Volvo, Maserati, and such announce? We don’t know yet, but we’ll find out on Wednesday and Thursday next week. aCarPlace will be there.
