2022 New York Auto Show Roundup | All the reveals, reviews, pictures
NEW YORK - In case you missed it, the New York Auto Show took place this year after being canceled in both 2020 and 2021 due to Covid. A lot of manufacturers showed up in force, but not everybody did. No matter, we were there, and we brought you news, photos and scoops from the floor throughout the show. All of our New York-related stories can be found at our central hub here, but if you'd rather just get a small taste of everything in a quick and digestible format, keep scrolling.
2023 Kia Telluride and its new X-Pro trim
Kia revealed the Telluride's first major refresh at New York, and it makes the three-row crossover a little bit more desirable without screwing up what we liked about it before. There's a new X-Line and X-Pro trim for someone who might want a little more off-road capability, and a number of tech improvements. Most notably, a newly-designed dash features new and bigger screens.
2023 Hyundai Palisade
The Telluride's sister car from Hyundai was treated to a similar refresh. Like the Telluride, Hyundai gave the Palisade a slightly revised look, a new off-road trim (called XRT in the Palisade's case), more tech inside and a new dash design with full-width air vents. If we had to choose, we're a little more impressed with the Telluride's refresh, as a number of us on staff actually prefer the pre-refresh Palisade styling over the new one.
2023 Jeep Wagoneer L and Grand Wagoneer L
This one was inevitable. Jeep revealed the longer, roomier versions of its Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer in New York, and they’re designated with an “L” at the end of their names. Total length grows by a foot, and the wheelbase goes up by 7 inches versus the standard Wagoneer models. Jeep has essentially allocated all this extra room to the cargo area, as it now offers a staggering 44.2 cubic-feet of space behind the third row.
Besides the L, Jeep announced that its new Hurricane inline-six engine would find its first home in the Wagoneer. Efficiency gets a small boost, and power is more than sufficient at either 420 horsepower (standard output) or 510 horsepower (high-output version) from the twin-turbo I-6.
Chrysler Airflow Graphite Concept
The Stellantis party continues with Chrysler and its slightly revised Airflow. Re-styled for the New York market after initially debuting at CES in Las Vegas, the Airflow Concept gets new paint, changed accent colors, a slightly changed interior design and a new interpretation of the Chrysler logo.
Kia Niro Hybrid, PHEV and EV
This was our first chance to get a good in-person look at the new Kia Niro models headed our way, and we were impressed. It gets a totally new design, massaged powertrains in all three variants and an EV6-inspired interior. We even got to take a little deep dive into the standout Aero Blade design feature seen on all new Niros.
