The New York International Auto Show was back and bigger than ever… and so were the cars. Our intrepid correspondents Sarah and Doug braved the crowds and sensory overload to hear straight from auto industry reps about the giant SUVs and muscle cars that will be prowling cities and suburban parking lots in the coming years.

Plus, with e-bikes and scooters ascendant, will they one day take the auto out of the Auto Show?
