On the latest episode of Wide Open Throttle, host Jessi Lang passes the mic off to Motor Trend Detroit editor Todd Lassa for a look at the most important unveilings from the New York auto show floor.
Lassa starts with one of the coolest New York show debuts—the SRT Viper. Though we covered the 2013 SRT Viper's debut in depth on last week's episode, Lassa touches on some interesting tidbits, like the Viper's return to racing in the American Le Mans Series with the SRT Viper GTS-R.
Lassa then highlights a few more mainstream debuts, like the 2013 Nissan Altima, 2013 Toyota Avalon, and 2013 Chevrolet Impala. Lassa also gives us an in-depth tour of the Infiniti LE Concept and its wireless recharging system that could be a game-changer for electric vehicles.
The latest episode of Wide Open Throttle wraps up with the updated 2013 Ram 1500, which features a fuel-saving tech like electric power steering, active grille shutters, and an eight-speed automatic transmission.
