The 2017 North American International Auto Show, also known as the Detroit Auto Show, is behind us now. While the show was a bit of a disappointment – especially with the lack of reveals from Fiat Chrysler and Ford – there were still a lot of news and reveals.
TFL’s Andre Smirnov and Nathan Adlen recapped some of their favorite moments from the show.
One big disappointment was from Ford. The new Ranger and Bronco are highly anticipated, but all Ford gave us was their logos and some footage of the current Ranger – which is sold worldwide – that won’t be the same one that we get.
Ford made up for it, though, with the facelifted F-150. It’s the company’s best-selling vehicle by far, so any facelift is big news. The fact that it’s now available with a diesel is also big news.
GM was busy, revealing two crossovers – the Chevrolet Traverse and the GMC Terrain. They did not bring the new Corvette, however.
One of Andre and Nathan’s favorite cars from the show came from Kia, of all companies. The new Stinger GT is a brand-new, 5-door sports sedan, something that was unexpected.
One of the biggest debuts came from Toyota, as their all-new Camry was revealed. This is Toyota’s biggest seller, so it’s a huge deal. It is a boldly designed car that Toyota hopes will bring more excitement and sportiness to the otherwise beige sedan.
Crossovers and were also the big news at the show. Crossovers were everywhere, from Mercedes-Benz, Infiniti, Nissan, and Audi, among others.
Volkswagen brought its I.D. Buzz electric vehicle concept to the show. It’s designed after the classic Microbus and showcases the future for the company, and the brand.
