What’s at the NYC show?

by David Zatz on

The New York Auto Show is taking place in March, and, for the first time since moving to the convention center, visitors can now take the subway directly from Grand Central Station, the Port Authority Bus Terminal, or Flushing (home of LaGuardia Airport).

New York is normally reserved for Jeep launches, leaving us with:

  • New Jeep Compass – possible/most likely Jeep
  • Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, new Wrangler – too early
  • Sub-Renegade Jeep: too early, and likely a Eurolaunch
  • Special edition: likely if there’s nothing else to show
  • Wagoneer, Grand Wagoneer: most likely too early

In the non-Jeep arena, we are looking to the Dodge Durango SRT and the Chrysler Pacifica AWD — the latter to keep the buzz around the minivan alive. A production Challenger AWD is also possible, following reception of the concept.

A long Cherokee mule has been spotted numerous times; this could be a Chrysler-branded replacement for the Dodge Journey.

We might see a rear wheel drive, midsized Dodge sedan or coupe, sharing with the Alfa Romeo Giulia, now that the latter has been unveiled. Put this into the “relatively unlikely” category along with a “partner built” Dart.

As the show gets closer, our field of speculation should get narrower.
