Can You Believe It? 2023 is Almost Over! Check Out These Exciting Vehicle Debuts at the LA Auto Show
Friends, can you believe that 2023 is nearly over? It feels like just yesterday we were counting down to the start of the year, and now here we are, already talking about the vehicles slated to debut at this year’s LA Auto Show. The show is set to open to the public on Friday, November 17, with the doors for the media opening a day earlier.
While the Japan Mobility Show a few weeks ago had us buzzing with excitement, the LA Auto Show is expected to have a more subdued atmosphere. Unfortunately, Stellantis had to back out of the action due to the UAW strike, which means that the highly anticipated new 2025 Ram and electric range-extended Ramcharger have already had their moments in the spotlight.
However, there are still some notable debuts to look forward to from major brands. Let’s take a quick rundown of what to expect, but keep in mind that automakers might surprise us with last-minute announcements leading up to the show. So, without further ado, here are the exciting debuts to watch out for:
Subaru “Fully Redesigned” Vehicle:
Subaru has teased us with a photo promising something “all new and fully redesigned.” While there’s been no official confirmation, it’s highly likely that we’ll see the next-generation Subaru Forester making its debut. The Forester, currently in its fifth generation, is Subaru’s oldest model, so it’s about time for a sixth-gen version.
After three long years, Lucid is finally ready to unveil its second production vehicle, the Gravity SUV. Development has continued despite the challenges the world has faced, and now we’ll get to see the production version up close. The Gravity will offer a choice of two-row or three-row seating configurations and is expected to have a high-performance trim similar to the Tesla Model X Plaid.
Toyota Crown SUV:
The Crown is a relatively new nameplate in North America, introduced in July 2022 as a high-riding sedan with crossover vibes. In Japan, it’s known for adorning several models, including the elegant Estate SUV. Toyota is bringing the Crown Estate to America, though they haven’t confirmed the name yet. This SUV will likely have increased ride height and cargo space compared to the sedan and will feature an all-wheel-drive hybrid powertrain with up to 340 horsepower.
Ford Mustang GT California Special:
While not a completely new model, Ford is set to release a special edition of the Mustang GT called the California Special. This will be the first mainstream special-edition Mustang since the seventh generation’s launch in 2022. The GT California Special is expected to feature prominent branding, unique wheels, and the GT Performance Package as standard equipment.
As the LA Auto Show draws closer, these debuts are sure to generate a lot of interest and excitement among automotive enthusiasts. It’s always thrilling to see new vehicles debut and witness the innovations and designs that automakers have been working on.
