2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, E63 AMG, GL-Class, ML-Class: Mercedes takes the wraps, finally, off the E-Class lineup in New York and brings along the whomping AMG-powered E63 in the process. Also on tap is the updated GL-Class sport-ute and the ML450 Hybrid, which will mark a watershed green moment when diesel and hybrid versions of the same vehicle fight it out on a single stage.

GMC Terrain: The 2010 Chevrolet Equinox has been flashed about on Detroit's media platform, but the GMC version has been on the back burner. In New York, expect GMC to show the mechanically similar Terrain, with a choice of four- and six-cylinder engines and much better fuel economy.

BMW X5 M and X6 M: BMW's M division vowed never to build an SUV. That was the old normal. The new normal is both X5 and X6 sport-utes jammed with V-8 deliciousness, more tightly tuned suspensions, and some visual add-ons to remind the hoi polloi that not only are you still monied enough to drive a BMW and an SUV, you can also afford lots of fuel.

Bentley Continental GT Supersports and Porsche 911 GT3: Euro sportscars fresh from world debuts in Geneva, the Porsche and the Bentley make the queasy trip to America.

CONCEPTS

Scion Concept: Will Scion's new concept be a hybrid iQ? Or something entirely different? Only Toyota knows for sure right now. Well, Toyota and the Web world held under embargo.

Mitsubishi Outlander GT: Want to know what the next Outlander will look like? Mitsubishi wants you to know. But not until next week. And even then, they'll hedge it as a concept.

Hyundai Nuvis: Hyundai is plotting the future of its subcompact universe, and it may look a lot like the Nuvis concept coming to Nuevo York.

Honda concept: This one's under wraps, but if you like people who like pets, you'll be entertained.
