Recommended Posts

In April, 2010 I had the opportunity to visit the New York Auto Show 2010. A very interesting visit which allowed me to appreciate more still the American north automobile market which corresponds completely to my automobile ideal smiley1.gif .

The car show of New York is not very known, it is find of the same size as the Geneva Auto Show in Switzerland. I am going to publish here a small part of photos made during the show but I find them representative.

And now the most surprising hall, that of the trucks and big SUV, best sales category in USA


The Nissan Titan, a japanese car for the US market with a king size V8



The new Suzuki Kizashi, a great car, but why in this hall?


The GMC Savana ( similar that the Chevrolet Express) one of the most current commercial vehicle (the best sale is the Ford Enconoline). In USA, for this commercial vehicle the smallest engine is a 4300cc V6 195hp and the biggest a 6.0 V8 323hp, there are also a 4.8 V8 and 5.3 V8. Gasoline of course! smiley17.gif


The Chevrolet Silverado, 3rd best sale in USA, behind the Ford F-Series (1st) and the Toyota Camry (2nd)


Only in V8


The Jeep, the most reasonable brand for the size of the SUV


The Toyota Tundra, like the Nissan Titan, a Japanese car for the USA 5.7 V8 381hp


The Dodge Ram, eighth best sale in USA, the Dodge Ram use the excellent V8 HEMI of chrysler group.


To you to choose your ideal RAM. No delivery deadline smiley4.gif


The biggest Ford Truck : The F-450 Super Duty with a 6.6 V8 Power Stroke Turbo Diesel engine (390hp, 735 ib-ft of torque). Look atthe size of the person in front of the radiator grill smiley3.gif


Closer to the truck than to the car


And of course the best seller of Ford, car the most sold in the USA since 1978, more than 20 millions since 1978 and more since the first in 1948. around 600000 sales a year.

A base price very small : 21'000$ (985'950inr) for the cheapest model with a 4.6 V8 248hp, a very solid car and engine, explain largely the success, especially in rural areas. But the best selling engine is the 5.4 V8 310hp.

I of course tried it, and i like, which comfort! What do you think of this car?


This is the Platinium level (lether...) with the standard 5.4 V8


Flex Fuel (for ethanol E85)


The new 6.2 V8, most powerful but not more fuel efficient smiley36.gif


And the new Raptor, the sport model, which use the new 6.2 V8


This is the end smiley1.gif




I hope you enjoyed the visit smiley2.gif
