It’s not without a certain amount of irony that one of the biggest global auto shows, and certainly one of the most significant to the U.S. market, is held in New York City, one of nation’s metropolitan areas with the lowest rates of private vehicle ownership. Nonetheless, according to Truck Trend, the April 18-27 2014 New York Auto Show remains a major international destination on the auto show circuit.

This year, several important truck debuts will be taking place in the Big Apple, among them the 2015 Ram 2500 Power Wagon — the third generation of the iconic full-size off-roader. This will also be the general public’s first look at the 2015 Ford Transit Skyliner concept revealed earlier this week in Southern California. Also present will be the HD version of the Chevrolet Silverado High Country, the bowtie brand’s equivalent to the wildly successful Denali trim offered by GMC.

The new Jeep Renegade subcompact SUV will be on display as well, which, along with the new KL Cherokee, promises to make the Jeep brand’s appeal truly global. Although it did not have its “official” debut in New York, the new Lexus NX crossover is sure to be the talk of the town, giving Toyota’s premium brand an entry in the important and growing premium compact crossover market.
