This week, the New York International Auto Show opened its doors to the press for a preview of what’s to come in 2016. A few showstoppers have already been revealed—and believe us when we say they’re some pretty incredible cars! The show is open to the public from April 3-12 at the Jacob Javits Center, and boasts hundreds of new car, truck and SUV models and concepts.

Here’s a sneak-peak at some of the models revealed early on to excited car enthusiasts.

Lincoln Continental Concept

Lincoln revealed their new Continental concept, said to be heading into production next year. The concept demonstrates an all-American, luxury sedan design teamed with cutting edge technology. People considering a career in auto may be interested to know that the Lincoln Continental is making its first comeback after 13 years.

It is reported that this luxury car will come with an exclusive 3.0-liter V6 EcoBoost engine, and will have around 440hp. It will also come equipped with “Lincoln Drive Control”, offering drivers three different driving modes – normal, sport and comfort – to suit their personal preferences.

The Continental concept’s design resembles that of a phantom—sleek and well-rounded, but it’s the interior that is truly impressive.

E-latch doors that respond to touch open quietly and easily. Rear seat amenities supply a first-class travel experience. With the touch of a button, the rear passenger can reposition the empty front seat to make room and can also totally recline the rear seat. Passengers also benefit from three stereo listening modes, an array of ambient LED lights in every nook and cranny, a deployable tablet lap tray and plush carpeting.

2016 Jaguar XF

The 2016 Jaguar XF mid-size luxury sedan has been redesigned with a focus on style, roominess, and light weight. The XF rides on an aluminum platform, decreasing its weight and therefore increasing fuel economy. Its proportions have been modified—it is shorter and lower that it’s previous model with a slightly longer wheelbase, offering more room for passengers.

Those enrolling in mechanic colleges will be happy to know that the new XF will also have a couple of engine options once they hit showrooms, including the V6, which can deliver 340hp or 380hp.

All-new full LED headlights are optional on the 2016 XF, along with a new Jaguar InControl Touch Pro infotainment system with an optional 10.2-inch touchscreen.

2016 Cadillac CT6

If you’re planning to enroll in an automotive course, you may have noticed a theme of big sedans going on at the 2015 NY Auto Show. That’s because NYC is one of the biggest luxury sedan markets out there.

The new 2016 Cadillac CT6 sets itself apart with technologies not available on any of the other brand’s models. The car boasts a rearview mirror that doubles as a wide-angle screen for a camera mounted on the trunk lid, a 360-degree camera system that can record around the vehicle if the security system’s activated, and an exclusive 34-speaker Bose sound system.
