You can read more about New York auto show debuts in today's previous posts here and here, but some Numbers have surfaced post-intro at the show.  Here's to keeping up to speed....


5 - gears available in the manual transmission of the 2009 Dodge Challenger R/T, one less than the manual transmission of the Challenger SRT8

2009 - year in which the Nissan Cube will be imported to the USA (and Canada, we can assume)

375 - horsepower generated by the V8 of manual-transmission Challenger R/Ts, five more than the automatic-equipped R/T

24 - expected highway mpg delivered by the 245-bhp-V6/auto combo in the base Dodge Challenger SE

2 - extra pound-feet of torque available in the automatic-equipped Pontiac G8 GXP over and above the 400 lb-ft in the manual G8 GXP

30 - percentage increase in fuel economy of the future Ford Transit Connect taxi (many of which will be seen in NYC) over the current Ford Crown Victoria

75 - cubic feet of cargo capacity (referred to by Ford as space for 75 cubic feet of "parcels") along with the three passengers

2003 - the year the Transit Connect was voted "van of the year", six years prior to its official American on-sale date

290 - horsepower produced by the 3.5L V6 in the upcoming Nissan Maxima, 35 more than the 'old' Maxima

2,000,000 - total global sales of the first generation Honda Fit, a Good 12 winner

1.5 - engine capacity of the '09 Honda Fit's four-cylinder, identical to the previous Fit, although Honda says the next Fit's powerplant is a new design
