2011 Acura TSX Sport Wagon: The TSX is an enthusiastic sedan and the addition of a highly functional wagon body style will only make things better. Look for the TSX wagon in showrooms before the end of the year.
2011 Kia Optima: Kia has been on fire lately with new models like the Soul, Forte Sedan, and Koup. The automaker looks to add some fuel to this fire with the new Optima sedan. If the concept sketches are any indication, the new Optima is going to be quite the looker as well.
2011 Hyundai Sonata Turbo and Hybrid: Combining the good looks of the newly launched 2011 Sonata with turbo power could be a big win for the Hyundai guys. And, well, I guess everyone has to sell a hybrid these days, too.
2011 BMW X5 Mid-Cycle Refresh: Look for a mild exterior refresh as is typical with BMW mid-way through a vehicles life cycle. The big news comes from the powetrain department. The excellent 3.0-liter I-6 diesel continues, with a new single-turbo 3.0-liter I-6, and the mighty 4.4-liter V-8 from the 7-Series joins the range, as well.
2011 Infinit QX56: We've had a peak at the new QX, which is bound for this year's show in the Big Apple. We saw what looked like FX styling on the same, QX-styled frame. Expect big gains in interior quality and that sweet new V-8 engine
2011 Honda Odyssey: Look for a production version of the svelte-looking Chicago Auto Show concept. The Odyssey has always been among the sportiest of the minivan crowd, so the new model has some big shoes to fill.
Cadillac CTS-V Sport Wagon: A 6.2-liter, supercharged, V-8 with 556 horsepower and 551 pound-feet of torque in a wagon. Good stuff. Now if Audi would just bring over the RS6 Avant, we could really have some fun.
Suzuki Kizashi V-6: We know Suzuki is bringing a new Kizashi variation to New York, and bets are leaning towards V-6 power for the excellent mid-size sedan. Expect north of 250 horsepower and all-wheel drive.
Acura Hybrid Concept: The Acura Hybrid Concept sits firmly at the rumor end of the auto show spectrum. Expect something based on the sporty TSX sedan.
Lexus CT200h: Will it come to the U.S. or not? Lexus is toying around with the idea of bringing its hybrid 1-Series/A3 fighter to the U.S. Look for standard Toyota Synergy Drive hybrid technology in this attractive, five-door hatch.
