The new Cadillac CT6 is the first vehicle to hit the road with this innovative feature: a rear-view mirror that switches to a digital camera feed with the touch of a toggle.

GM's rear camera mirror will give you a wider view than a traditional mirror and it won't be obstructed by bulky objects or heads on the second row. This technology will also feature in Chevrolet's upcoming Bolt EV.

Mazda's MX-5 Miata debuted a new variant at this year's New York Auto Show that's raised a ton of questions and left me stunned by its beauty.

I'd like to know how the new MX-5 RF's motorized retractable fastback affects the Miata's headroom. I also want to know how quiet it is at highway speeds and, most importantly, how the weight affects the tossable Miata's driving character. My Roadshow colleagues and I can't wait to get this hotly debated machine on the road.

Ford's new F-150 wants to make maneuvering with a bulky trailer as easy as twisting a knob with its new backup assist function.

Backup assist automatically steers the truck while it's reversing. This keeps the trailer lined up and moving in the right direction while the driver guides the movement with a dashboard knob.

Is it weird that I'm so excited about the next generation of seat technology from Lincoln? Maybe, but the automaker's new 30-way power adjustable seats offer an unprecedented degree of customization to cater to any passenger's unique behind.

The new thrones will be first featured in Lincoln's Continental large sedan and offer individual articulation and support of each of the passenger's legs, buns and more.

Today's hottest tech cars can already park themselves with you behind the wheel. Tomorrow's cars will act as their own valets, parking themselves after dropping off the driver at their doorstep. At least, that's the promise of BMW's "remote valet parking assistant".

The remote valet assistant -- and similar features coming soon from Tesla and VW -- will allow your BMW to guide itself into a garage or parking space and then return to meet the driver later at the touch of a button or app.

Volvo has pledged that the S90 luxury sedan will be the first vehicle to hit the market with standard autonomous driving tech.

This feature will guide the car along a marked highway -- staying between the lane lines and maintaining a safe following distance if a car is ahead of it -- all without the driver's intervention. This is similar to Tesla's Autopilot technology.

We're looking forward to the promises of autonomous driving and increased comfort, but the Ford Focus RS has us looking forward to tire-demolishing power.

Its so-called "drift mode" tweaks the performance of the all-wheel drive system to make sliding sideways easier. Yes, please!
