Bright Lights, Big City: 6 New York Auto Show Debuts
The 2014 New York International Automobile Show will kick off April 16 at the Jacob Javits Center on Manhattan’s West Side. Since the show’s debut in 1900 as North America’s first automotive exhibition, the NY auto show has been the place to go to see interesting things on two and four wheels. In the 2014 edition, automakers will bring performance concepts, World Car Award winners, supercars, and remakes of old standards to the big city.
More than thirty vehicles will make their debut at the New York auto show. Here are six new automobiles that have been let out of the bag ahead of the event.
1. 2015 Ford Focus
When the best selling car on planet Earth gets a makeover, it’s an event worthy of auto expo headlines. Ford will showcase two new versions of its 2015 Focus beginning April 16 in New York. The 2015 Focus Sedan comes with a refreshed exterior, enhanced interior, upgraded technology, and a 1.0-liter Ecoboost engine that should deliver unparalleled efficiency.
In addition, Ford will deliver the 2015 Focus Electric for New York audiences. Specifications of Ford’s new electric vehicle have not been provided ahead of the show, making this debut one of the most awaited from the automaker’s corner. The popular Focus ST “hot hatch” will be revealed to the public later on in 2014. All three 2015 models are expected to go on sale before the year’s end.
Ford sold nearly 1.1 million models of the Focus around the world in 2013, which made it the best selling car globally for the second straight year. Like Toyota has learned to upgrade its Camry without messing too much with a good thing, Ford has to prove it has the Midas touch with new Focus models.
