The 2022 edition of the New York Auto Show certainly did not set a precedent for its many revelations. Many car brands were clearly visible in their absence, while other divisions had nothing to disclose at this annual conference, which has been marred by – like all other car shows for that matter – and catastrophic for more than two years.
However, the organizers of this international exhibition have found a way to “fill” some of the rooms of the Javits Center, where the exhibition has taken place since the 1980s.
Aside from the more official disclosures, all of which ended up on our site yesterday (and which are listed below, for your enjoyment of reading and viewing), this is what impressed our co-host Vincent Aubé who was present this day reserved for the press. , and who had little time to venture into the remotest parts of the Javits Center.
Toyota GR Corolla 2023… in all its glory!
A new explosion sparked by the world of assemblies is causing a great deal of controversy in the car enthusiasts’ debate. We still do not know all the details – the prices of the Canadian version among others – but one thing is certain, being able to watch a car on the exhibition platform only increases our desire to try it on a closed circuit. … or even on the surface of the soil!
Citroen BX 4TC and Nissan Pulsar GTI-R
To stay within the theme of “car racing”, here are two race cars from two car racing episodes of the last century. On the left, the Citroën BX 4TC was developed for the Group B unit in a protest in the mid-1980s. The French car not only wore this angular garment as much as possible, but also benefited from a 4-cylinder engine and all. -run the wheel.
On the right side, the Nissan Pulsar GTI-R was launched in the early 90’s, a bomb that was also powered by a 4-cylinder turbo and a four-wheel drive.
BMW M3, Renault 5 Turbo II and Jaguar XJR-15
Other classics from the past were collected a little more. The legendary BMW M3 E30, in red, is still a public favorite, especially in the absence of a manufacturer within the walls of the Javits Center. In black, the Renault 5 Turbo II is undoubtedly the rarest aircraft in North America. With a 4-cylinder turbo engine in the middle position and a rear-wheel drive, the inflated version of the Renault 5 has been a value-added commodity product for many years.
Finally, in yellow, the Jaguar XJR-15 is no ordinary car on the road worldwide, with more than 50 copies collected in the early 90’s… across the planet!
Model Kia EV9
It is very interesting to see what can be done to showcase the car of the future. In the case of the Kia EV9 – which will eventually be a production model – the floor-screened screen added an elevated orientation. Next to the redesigned Telluride, the EV9 is a little smaller.
Chevrolet Silverado EV
The style of electric vans is just the beginning. To succeed in the electric niche, General Motors will need a Silverado EV in top condition to convince regular buyers of this type of car. At this New York show, the truck was the center of attention.
Electricity in Ford
The beauty of electric cars and the lack of several brands in this edition of the New York show have enabled a few developers to prepare very brief tests within the convention center. While it is clear that the Ford Mustang Mach-E and the new F-150 Lightning image are still sought after by consumers, the presence of this 1978 F-100 – or Eluminator as Ford people like to call it – has been fully restored to date. powered by an electric train is enough to attract unsuspecting people.
adventure with Toyota
Je! are there still people who doubt the ability of torture cars? At Toyota, the theme was applied to several usage models. Even Sienna found a rooftop tent.
Elvis’ 1956 Lincoln Bara Mark II
Elvis Presley’s 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II slept in the middle of the Lincoln booth, a unit that has been slowly making a name for itself on the electric side. We bet that the American beauty will attract her part of the underprivileged people at this New York 2022 Car Show.
Alfa Romeo Spider
Clearly, this Italian revolution from the 90’s is closer to land and its suspension changed. Is it blasphemy or is it just a means of expression?
Travis Pastrana’s 1983 Subaru GL Wagon
The Gymkhana craze may have been favored by Ken Block, but rider Travis Pastrana needs what it takes to own this dirty car of the 80’s. Remember, apart from a few body panels, there are not many components left. run a behemoth designed to slide on any surface.
Even if an automated repair company eventually turns to electrical installation, that does not mean that it will have to stop selling its performance cars, such as the new WRX or even the BRZ coupe.
