BMW X5 M and X6 M - The second-generation versions of BMW's X5 M and X6 M will arrive in the UK in April next year, priced from £90,179 and £93,070 respectively. The pair both receive the same twin-turbocharged 4.4-litre V8 engine, which provides both cars with 564bhp and 553lb ft. An eight-speed automatic transmission replaces the six-speed unit of the first generation models, while both cars also get new, more aggressive bodywork.
Cadillac ATS-V coupé - Aiming to take on the likes of BMW's M4, the Cadillac ATS-V coupé has already been spotted completely undisguised in spy pictures. Power is expected to come from a 3.6-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine, while the model also sports more aggressive front and rear bumpers.
Chrysler 300C – Chrysler has announced plans to launch "thoroughly refreshed" versions of its 300 and 300C models in LA, with both models arriving in US showrooms in the first quarter of next year. Details on the updated models are limited, but spy photos have shown mild styling tweaks to the car's bumpers, grille and interior.
Fisker Rocket - Former Aston Martin design chief Henrik Fisker - who founded the Fisker Automotive brand - has promised to unveil "the ultimate American muscle car" in LA, and has teamed up with US-based Galpin Auto Sports. The new model, christened Rocket, features exaggerated styling that mixes muscle car and sports coupé lines.
Ford Explorer and Mustang - So far, the Blue Oval has only confirmed it will be showing two new models in LA; one will be a new version of the Explorer SUV and the other is a hot version of the recently launched Mustang. Back in February we spotted a hot-looking Mustang in testing. That model, dubbed the GT350, could come with more than 420bhp and be powered by the range-topping 5.0-litre V8 from the standard car.
Jaguar F-type AWD – Already spotted testing in spy pictures, Jaguar confirmed the existence of an AWD F-type when it confirmed its partnership with the Bloodhound SSC land speed record team. The car, which is capable of sprinting to 60mph in 3.9sec in top-end R coupé form, took part in a high-speed communications test with the Bloodhound team in South Africa.
Lexus LF-C2 - So far Lexus has only released a single image of its open-top concept, but it's hard to deny the similarity in shape to the RC coupé which made its debut in Tokyo last year. It's highly likely, then, that the LF-C2 previews a convertible version of the RC. Expect a hardcore RC-F version to follow, too.
Mazda CX-5 facelift – We've spotted late-stage prototype versions of Mazda's updated crossover testing ahead of a likely debut in LA. Expect subtle styling changes, particularly around the front grille and bumper, while the current model's engine line-up is expected to carry over unchanged. Inside, the updated CX-5 should come with a new free-standing infotainment system similar to that used on the 3 hatchback.
Mazda 6 facelift - The Japanese manufacturer will unveil a facelifted version of its Ford Mondeo rival. Like the CX-5, expect light styling changes and economy and emissions improvements to the 6's range of engines.
Mazda CX-3 - Mazda has already confirmed that its new CX-3 compact crossover will reach the UK around next April. Set to take on the likes of the Nissan Juke, the CX-3 gets Mazda's 'Kodo - Soul of Motion' design language and will be powered by the firm's Skyactiv engine range.
