The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, Michigan begins January 8th and will run through the 22nd. We will have more news from the show once it is underway, but here are some notable vehicle launches to watch for.
Flying from California to Detroit for a press event was a frigid shock; as my Bostonian editor strolled breezily in a sweater, I was parka’d up like an eskimo. They tell you to leave Northern California before it makes you soft, and it looks like I’ve missed my window.
With its new Impreza, Subaru goes further into the forefront of mainstream automotive design.
This year’s North American International Auto Show featured lots of debuts from automakers, including Ford. They showed off the 2017 Ford Fusion and a new Raptor SuperCrew, but their biggest news wasn’t even a vehicle. It was something called FordPass.
The 2017 GMC Acadia is the first of the vehicles in GM’s midsize crossover lineup. The new Acadia telegraphs changes coming for the Chevrolet Traverse and Buick Enclave in the coming years.
The Lincoln Continental was the car to see at last year’s North American International Auto Show, and this year brings the “quiet luxury” of the production version.
The Acura Precision Concept is a car that Acura suggests will shape the direction of all future Acura products. That means it’s not ready for production now, and not for a long time, if ever, but you should see Acura cars take on this look in the future.
The Telluride is Kia’s first shot at a three-row, seven passenger, full-sized SUV. It’s a concept at this point, but Kia doesn’t show concepts without some plan to have them built.
We left “Hyundai” out of the headline because the Genesis G90 is no more a Hyundai than a Lexus is a Toyota. The G90 is the first all-new car for this new luxury brand.
