The 2015 North American International Auto Show recently wrapped, and the buzz surrounding the Detroit event is still high. This year, more than 808,000 people checked in, topping last year‘s record crowd. And the unveilings that drew much of the attention were products of the Motor City, proving that Detroit’s car clout is stronger than ever…
Ford GT: No automobile showcased at the Detroit auto show drew as much attention as the all-new Ford GT. With a new twin-turbocharged V6 engine that puts out 600 horsepower and features like a deployable rear spoiler, the technology driving the Ford supercar is as impressive as its looks.
Buick Avenir Concept: The Avenir—French for future—could be a sign that Buick will be looking to play an even bigger role in the luxury car market. The striking concept, unveiled at the auto show, features some classic Buick styling cues wrapped into a much bolder design package.
Cadillac CTS-V Sedan: On the heels of unveiling the ATS-V coupe at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November, Cadillac followed up at the Detroit show with the debut of the CTS-V. The high-performance sedan packs 640 horsepower and 630 lb.-ft. of torque with a top speed of 200 mph.
Ford Mustang Shelby GT350R: Following the debut of the Shelby GT350 at the LA auto show, the Shelby GT350R is touted as the most race-ready road-legal Mustang ever. It’s also the first car to feature lightweight carbon fiber wheels as a standard feature.
Lincoln MKX: Building on the appeal of the compact Lincoln MKC, the MKX is touted as the best example of Lincoln’s evolution to date. In addition to a number of new design elements, the midsize luxury SUV now comes with a 19-speaker Revel audio system. Sounds good to us.
Chevrolet Bolt EV Concept: While compact in size, the Chevy Bolt EV Concept’s appeal is huge. The all-electric car, which is sure to become a production vehicle, is expected to have a driving range of 200 miles.
Ram Rebel 1500: The Rebel is a more menacing spin on the popular pickup. Designed with off-roading in mind, the truck features a blacked-out grille, a blacked out off-road front bumper and flat-black badging. Photos by A.J. Mueller, CTS-V courtesy of Cadillac
