Bigger and better than ever, the 2014 New York International Auto Show served as the launching pad for a long list of new, significantly changed, and slightly updated new car, truck, and SUV models. In the gallery that follows, listed in alphabetical order, are 20 of the most significant models to debut at this year's show.


2015 Acura TLX
Replacing the TSX and TL in Acura's lineup, the 2015 TLX sedan is offered with a 4-cylinder or V-6 engine, the latter available with all-wheel drive. New transmissions, driving dynamics systems, and safety technologies inspire Acura to call the 2015 TLX the most dynamically advanced car it has ever produced.


2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Launch Edition
Marking the official return of Alfa Romeo to the U.S. car market, the 4C Launch Edition is a limited-production version of the new lightweight, mid-engine sports car that presages a new lineup of U.S.-bound Alfas.


2016 Audi A3 Sportback
Audi says the A3 faithful are responsible for the return of a 5-door hatchback to the company's A3 lineup in the United States. Shown in New York in TDI Clean Diesel form, a plug-in hybrid version is also heading to the States.

2015 BMW 4 Series Gran Coupe
Equipped with 4+1 seating, frameless glass for its four doors, and a power tailgate that raises to reveal nearly 50 cu. ft. of maximum cargo room, the new 4 Series Gran Coupe from BMW blends style, performance, and utility, especially in 435i format.

2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Convertible
Stuffed full of supercharged V-8, the new 625-horsepower Corvette Z06 Convertible is made possible by the sports car's stiff aluminum structure. The car in New York was the second one produced by Chevrolet. The first? That was in 1963, when one of 199 Corvettes produced with a Z06 option package was a convertible.

2015 Chevrolet Trax
Entering the compact crossover fray, the new Chevy Trax is a Buick Encore without all the fancy fixin's. A turbocharged, 1.4-liter 4-cylinder engine powers the front wheels, and all-wheel drive is optional. It faces competition from the new Honda HR-V when it hits showrooms in early 2015.


2015 Dodge Challenger
It might look the same on the outside, but the new Dodge Challenger benefits from a long list of mechanical and technological upgrades, coupled with a new interior that Dodge says is reminiscent of the 1971 Challenger.

2015 Ford Focus
New styling, an improved interior, and new equipment bring Ford's compact car into greater focus for 2015. A new turbocharged, 1.0-liter 3-cylinder engine is optional, delivering what Ford says is class-leading fuel economy for a traditional engine.

2015 Ford Mustang 50 Year Limited Edition

2015 Honda HR-V
Honda announced the new HR-V in New York, and showed this picture. Based on the new 2015 Fit, the Honda HR-V is a compact crossover SUV similar to the new Chevy Trax and other models like the Nissan Juke and Subaru XV Crosstrek.


2015 Hyundai Sonata
Redesigned for 2015, and equipped with a new interior, the Hyundai Sonata goes aerodynamic to increase fuel economy from its two engines, which are less powerful but said to offer more useful performance than before. Officially, the Sonata is considered to be a full-size sedan by the government, but competes against midsize models.

2015 Infiniti Q70
Minor styling changes characterize the new Infiniti Q70, which is now offered in a long-wheelbase Q70L model that adds plenty of rear-seat legroom.

2015 Kia Sedona
With the debut of the new 2015 Sedona, Kia sells the newest minivan design in America. Better yet, you never need to remove the second-row seats to maximize cargo space.

2015 Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe
Looking for a way to separate yourself from the riff-raff? Check out this new AMG-massaged S-Class Coupe, complete with a hand-built, twin-turbocharged, 5.5-liter V-8 engine that generates 577 horsepower and 664 lb.-ft. of torque. Mercedes claims it'll hit 60 mph in 3.9 seconds.

2015 Nissan Murano
If you like the new Nissan Murano's styling, you'll like the direction the company is headed with all of its future models. A familiar 260-horsepower V-6 engine sits under the hood, and the midsize crossover SUV's interior features Zero Gravity seat designs. Naturally, all-wheel drive is an option.

2015 Toyota Camry
Toyota, apparently disinterested in relinquishing its "best-selling car in America" title anytime soon, has restyled the Camry for 2015 while at the same time upgrading the interior and offering new infotainment and safety features. The 4-cylinder, V-6, and hybrid powertrains, however, are the same as those in today's Camry.

2015 Volkswagen Golf TDI SportWagen Concept
Aside from the 4Motion all-wheel-drive system that's paired with Volkswagen's TDI Clean Diesel engine in this "concept car," what you see here is essentially the replacement for the Jetta SportWagen. Bigger inside, and offered with more modern equipment, the new 2015 Golf SportWagen features a choice between a turbocharged, 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine or the latest Clean Diesel power plant from VW.
