After a 21-year absence in the U.S. market, the fifth-generation Toyota Supra rear-wheel-drive sports car makes its global debut this morning at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
The fifth generation of Toyota’s Supra rear-wheel-drive sports car was a co-development with BMW and uses the German automaker’s B58 3.0L turbocharged and direct-injected I-6, a 2019 Wards 10 Best Engines winner in the X5.
Ford Performance pushes the sixth-generation Mustang platform to peak power with a supercharged, plus-700-hp 5.2L V-8 under the hood and racing-bred upgrades throughout.
The Toyota luxury brand cut weight from the RC F, and then further for its limited-run Track Edition, with the latter boasting carbon fiber and titanium elements.
Detroit’s automakers, the companies that helped make their hometown show a truly international event that can’t be missed, seemingly have given up on it, at least the press days.
“The question you hear all the time from consumers is, ‘Who can afford these new vehicles?’” says Charlie Chesbrough, Cox Automotive’s senior economist.
The 3-row segment is the fastest growing corner of the booming CUV market, and the XT6 should give Cadillac a much-needed shot in the arm.
