A new frame is underneath the mostly familiar (new grille for Laramie Limited and Rebel) body of the Ram 1500. Ram 3500 upgrades its highest output Cummins diesel to 900 lb.-ft. at 1700 RPM.
The big show in New York is the last major show before the 2014 model year begins and manufacturers took advantage of this timing to introduce a huge slew of new and redesigned models. From the 74 horsepower 3-cylinder Mitsubishi Mirage to the 624 horsepower V12 Rolls Royce Wraith, the NYAIS had over 20 world or U.S. premieres.
The Car Chat team took a road trip to the 2018 New York International Auto Show, and found the show has something for everyone -- a fun event for the whole family and all auto enthusiasts. There are entertaining virtual reality displays and games to play, and even lego work station sponsored by Ford that will encourage STEM-related creativity. Near the Lego work station, Ford also provided a glimpse into the near future regarding autonomous, self-driving delivery vehicles as a service. Toyota has provided a driverless concept display and a virtual reality experience for two passengers, a really fun experience!
It is definitely worth the effort to come to New York City for this event because you can organize so many other touristic activities around it, so many, in fact, that it goes way beyond the scope of this article to even mention them. The latest models and important highlights of the 2018 New York International Auto Show will be discussed by the Car Chat writers in subsequent articles.
