A Special Edition 2015 Ford Mustang, Toyota's New Camry, and More -- Don't Miss the NYC Auto Show

The New York International Auto Show is a major stop on the world's auto-show circuit. Like so much else in New York, it's big, it's loud, and it's one of the industry's highest-profile stages.

Rex Moore and John Rosevear, better known as The Motley Fool's Motor Money duo, were in New York for the first of two days devoted to events for the world's automotive and financial media -- and they've captured the highlights to share with you through the magic of video.

Rex and John were there as Hyundai  (NASDAQOTH: HYMTF  ) revealed its all-new Sonata sedan, which has its sights set squarely on Toyota's  (NYSE: TM  ) top-selling Camry -- while Toyota, looking to gain a step on its rivals, revealed a surprisingly extensive overhaul of its top-selling sedan.

Meanwhile, Ford  (NYSE: F  ) kicked off its celebration of the Mustang's 50th birthday week in style with a special anniversary edition -- and John asked Ford's chief operating officer, Mark Fields, to share his perspective on what makes the Mustang special to Ford and its fans around the world.

Ford also showed off the latest version of its Focus. The Focus may not seem not quite as exciting as the Mustang, but it's a critical product for Ford -- and John offers his take on whether Ford's overhaul of its hot-selling compact hit the mark. 

It's all here in Rex and John's video report on Day 1 of the New York International Auto Show. Check it out, and then scroll down to leave a comment with your thoughts on the show.

Can you name the company that keeps OPEC awake at night?
Imagine a company that rents a very specific and valuable piece of machinery for $41,000 per hour. (That's almost as much as the average American makes in a year!) And Warren Buffett is so confident in this company's can't-live-without-it business model, he just loaded up on 8.8 million shares. An exclusive, brand-new Motley Fool report reveals the company we're calling OPEC's Worst Nightmare. Just click here to uncover the name of this industry-leading stock, and join Buffett in his quest for a veritable landslide of profits!

    Good for the new Ford Mustang, that's going to be a solid car for years. The Corolla looks much less bland but still weird. The Sonata lost what made it unique with the restyle. Stickers and chrome stick-ons for their performance package? Gimme a break. I guess they have to market to their customers that would buy a 4-door midsize. The Stinger is where their soul will go.

    @armygentleman: Agreed all around. I like the styling of the current Sonata; this one just isn't as interesting, even with the "Sport" add-ons they came up with for the U.S. market. (It's not really a performance package, it's mostly just... sporty-looking.)

    I haven't driven the new Mustang yet, but I've sat in several of the preproduction cars. It's very impressive. They've kept all of the Mustang-ness, while making it a nicer, more premium-feeling car. The interiors are especially well done, and on the loaded GTs they'll give BMWs and Audis a run for their money. There's a lot of good potential here.

    Thanks for stopping by.
