That’s the age, more or less, of the automotive industry and naturally, its history is steep. Thousands of makes and models have come and gone over the decades, but only a few have really revolutionized the way auto manufacturers do business.
These are the vehicles that made everyone sit up and take notice. The ones that reshaped the North American automotive landscape.
Narrowing the field down to just one vehicle per decade was not easy. We focused on cars, trucks and SUVs that changed the industry specifically in North America, although that doesn’t mean it had to specifically be a North American vehicle. So, here are the 14 vehicles that changed the world and a few honorable mentions as well.
The press days of the 2016 New York Auto Show are all wrapped up, and although it was a somewhat quiet show with no real blockbuster debuts, there were a handful of significant reveals here.
The New York event has a tough time because it is the first show after the Geneva Motor Show, where Bugattis and Lamborghinis come out to play. Geneva is a hard act to follow. But still, here are the Top 5 debuts from this year’s New York Auto Show.
The Geneva Motor Show might as well be called The Supercar Show or The You Can’t Afford This Show because if a car is expensive, exclusive, has more than 1,000 horsepower or all of the above, this is probably the place you’ll find it.
And this year’s show didn’t disappoint, because all the high-end brands we know and love and even bunch of random boutique supercar makers we’ve never heard of and can’t pronounce all debuted their latest cars here.
Here are our picks for the 5 most significant and buzzworthy debuts of the show.
The 2016 Geneva Motor Show will kick off next week and there’s a lot to be excited about.
Often home to debuts of some of the world’s craziest and most exotic supercars, the Geneva Motor Show is also one of the largest auto shows in the world. Unfortunately, we now live in an age where the Internet plays a bigger role in car unveilings than actual auto shows, so many automakers now take advantage by unveiling their debuts ahead of time.
But that doesn’t mean there aren’t some that are still kept under wraps. We may have already seen photos for many of the debuts heading to the 2016 Geneva Motor Show, but there’s nothing like checking them out in the flesh.
The 2015 L.A. Auto Show will host at least 50 vehicle debuts, many of which will be global premieres.
There’s a lot to be excited about if you’re an automotive enthusiast or a car shopper. The AutoGuide team will be on hand to deliver full coverage of every major debut with articles, photos and our first look videos.
