New Rides at the 2019 New York International Auto Show

Stanley Kong

39 automakers revealed their new models Friday at the 2019 New York International Auto Show. Here are four hot new cars from the show floor that will soon be making their way to the student lot.

Jeep Gladiator

Jeep unveiled a new truck to their lineup, the 2020 Gladiator. Based on the Wrangler, the Gladiator has a pickup truck bed without compromising rear seat space. It has a three-way adjustable power liftgate, offroad shocks and swaybars, and an optional soft top. Prices start at $33,545, with the highest trim model, the Rubicon, adding another ten grand. And yes, most models come with doors.

Jeep Wrangler

Jeep also refreshed their most popular model. The Wrangler comes with new LED lights, a refreshed interior, and a new 2.0L turbocharged inline four-cylinder engine that gets better gas mileage. The Motor Trend Truck of the Year winner starts at $28,045, with many variations to choose from. All models are certainly capable off-road, on the beach, and on potholes on the LIE.

Ford Mustang

The Mustang showed up at the auto show with a fresh facelift for 2019. This time, Ford has ditched the V6 for a 2.3L four-cylinder that gets better gas mileage without sacrificing the power. The base coupe starts at $26,395, with the convertible being $31,890. Double that and add a little more, and for $70,000 you can get the new Mustang GT500, with a beefy V8 putting out over 700 horsepower. You certainly won’t see those on the student lot anytime soon.

Toyota 86

The Toyota 86 has been a staple of the sports car scene for the last five years and has since seen minor exterior and performance changes to maintain its place as one of the most capable performance cars on the road. This year, TRD, Toyota’s performance division, added a power boost to the model while giving it striking new exterior cosmetics. The 86 TRD starts at $32,420, with the base model starting at $26,505.

There’s still plenty of time to visit this year’s New York Auto Show! The show runs in Javits Center until April 28 from 10 A.M.-10 P.M. from Monday-Saturday and from 10 A.M.-8 P.M. on Sundays. Tickets start at $17 online and can be purchased from the official website.
