Some commenters said they would like to see high-end sports cars like the McLaren P1, Acura NSX, and SRT Viper ACR raise the bar, while others hope more mainstream cars like the next Ford Mustang, Chevrolet SS and Cruze diesel, as well as the Mazda6 all perform well. Commenter jsthanginrwnd has high hopes for the next-generation Ford F-150, saying, “Expectations are massive for the aluminum bodied next-gen [truck].  This will probably be one of the most significant introductions in years”
