Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations developed and engineered the F-PACE SVR, which debuted in New York, as the fastest and most powerful F-PACE to date. Combining sports car performance and SUV design, the F-PACE is powered by a supercharged 5.0-liter V8 engine producing 550 horsepower and is capable of accelerating from zero to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds with a top speed of 176 mph. Aerodynamic enhancements include larger air intakes at the front, side fender vents that lower pressure in the wheel arches to reduce lift and improve high-speed stability. The SVR hood adds vents to extract hot air; unique wheel arch extensions and lower body moldings give the SVR a more aggressive stance, while at the rear a unique spoiler is added as well as a new bumper for the quad tailpipes.

The F-PACE suspension is upgraded with stiffer front and rear progressive springs and uprated anti-roll bars. Lightweight, wider forged 21-inch wheels are standard with 22-inch wheels optional, and larger brakes are added front and rear. The torque-on-demand all-wheel-drive system is optimized for performance and to take advantage of the rear Electronic Active Differential for high-performance application. The Adaptive Dynamics Suspension, Electronic Power Assisted Steering and Dynamic Driving Mode are all modified and tuned for SVR. Inside, the F-PACE SVR features slimline performance front seats that provide enhanced lateral support and have signature lozenge quilting and an embossed SVR logo. In addition, unique rear seats echo the heavily sculpted designs up front. Finally, the SVR-branded steering wheel features tactile aluminum paddle shifters.

Looking nearly identical to the I-PACE Concept that debuted in 2016, the all-electric 2019 Jaguar I-PACE made its North American debut in New York following its global debut in a live global webcast on March 1 from the I-PACE manufacturing facility in Graz, Austria. The all-wheel-drive I-PACE is powered by two electric motors — one driving each axle — for a total output of 394 horsepower and 512 lb-ft of torque, which makes the I-PACE capable of accelerating from zero to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, according to Jaguar. Expected driving range is 240 miles on a full charge from the 90kWh lithium-ion battery. The battery can be charged from zero to 80 percent capacity in about 40 minutes using publicly-available 100kW rapid charging facilities, or achieve the same 80 percent charge at home using a 230V/32A AC wall box in just over 10 hours.

Built on a unique aluminum-intensive EV architecture that uses advanced riveting and bonding technology, the I-PACE features a light, stiff body structure with a 50:50 weight distribution. The battery is positioned as low as possible between the axles for a low center of gravity. The suspension includes double wishbones at the front and an Integral Link rear suspension with standard Active Air Suspension for good ride quality and agile handling. With a long 117.7-inch wheelbase and an overall length of 184.3 inches, the I-PACE has a similar footprint to the Jaguar F-PACE but offers the interior space of a larger vehicle, thanks to the EV architecture.

After its global rollout in Geneva, the Lexus UX — the first ever compact luxury crossover from Lexus — made its U.S. debut in New York. The first Lexus vehicle to use the brand’s Global Architecture — Compact platform, the UX benefits from a rigid structure and low center of gravity to deliver both agile handling and ride comfort.

The all-new 2019 Toyota RAV4 made its world debut at the New York Auto Show, boasting a new tougher, more aggressive design. The new look — particularly the stronger front end — bears more of a resemblance to the 4Runner (Toyota’s legendary off-road SUV) than the previous-gen RAV4. The fifth generation RAV4 is built on a new platform with multilink rear suspension and the new unibody is 57 percent stiffer than the previous model, allowing engineers to tune the chassis for handling, ride comfort and lower interior noise. Toyota Safety Sense 2.0 with new active safety technologies is standard as well as Entune 3.0 with Wi-Fi Connect powered by Verizon, Amazon Alexa, and Apple CarPlay Compatibility.

In 2017 Volkswagen introduced the 7-passenger Atlas, and in New York this year the German automaker iterated on the platform with the debut of the Atlas Cross Sport Concept. Showcased at a special event on the eve of the 2018 New York Auto Show, this stylish concept provides a first look at an upcoming production model expected to arrive next year. The Cross Sport Concept maintains the same long wheelbase as the 7-passenger Atlas, but the vehicle is 7.5-inches shorter in overall length. This results in shorter front and rear overhangs, with a coupelike profile, bold fender flares and 22-inch alloy wheels. Up front, the Cross Sport Concept gets a 2-bar grille, LED headlights and running lights are integrated into the grille with illuminated cross bars.

© Perry Stern, Automotive Content ExperienceVolkswagen Atlas Cross Sport Concept
The interior of the Cross Sport Concept is predictably futuristic with a 10.1-inch integrated display as the centerpiece of the dashboard. All infotainment and basic vehicle functions are accessed using the touchscreen or gesture control. A second touchscreen has climate control settings. The Atlas Cross Sport Concept also has a high-resolution digital cockpit display in front of the driver that changes configuration depending on the drive mode selected. The display can be configured for navigation, driving information or other functions as needed. Volkswagen gives this 5-passenger concept a powerful plug-in hybrid powertrain that employs the 276-horsepower V6 engine found in the 7-passenger Atlas combined with two electric motors — one in front, one at the rear. Combined power is rated at 355 horsepower, and VW estimates this crossover could sprint to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds and would have an electric-only range of 26 miles.

© Perry Stern, Automotive Content ExperienceVolkswagen Atlas Tanoak Pickup Concept
A dual-cab, short-bed pickup, the Volkswagen Atlas Tanoak Pickup Concept also made its world debut at the New York show. Built on the same MQB platform as the 7-passenger Atlas SUV, the Atlas Tanoak Pickup Concept is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 FSI engine that produces 276 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, combined with an 8-speed automatic transmission and 4MOTION all-wheel drive. From the B-pillars forward, the Atlas Tanoak Pickup Concept is similar to the Atlas, but the front end is more rugged. The rear doors are much different than Atlas, and the door handles are incorporated with the C-pillars. At the rear, an Atlas logo gets integrated into the tailgate and wraparound animated lighting draws attention. Other design features include wheel arch extensions that incorporate integrated side marker lights, and high-gloss 20-inch wheels that use contrasting aluminum and black coloring.

© Perry Stern, Automotive Content ExperienceVolkswagen Atlas Tanoak Pickup Concept
Inside this pickup concept, the 5-occupant interior features sport contoured seats in the front and three individual seats for those relegated to the rear. The instrument panel, center console and steering wheel have been redesigned from the Atlas with most functions controlled digitally. Ambient lighting is integrated into the instrument panel, and the roof console lights the interior in yellow or blue light at night, depending on whether the vehicle is in Off-road or City mode. The center console includes a new shifter grip design and a metallic slider to control mode selection for 4MOTION with Active Control.
