You might have heard that the Detroit economy is on the upswing and so is the North American International Auto Show.
You could say the COBO Center just got a mid-cycle refresh and as you can guess itís bigger, better and more efficient (sort of) than ever before. But time is short and what you really care about is inside, so what are you waiting for?
This yearís Detroit Auto Show is shaping up to be one of the largest in recent memory in terms of product reveals.
Major debuts include the new Chevy Volt, Nissan Titan, Toyota Tacoma, Cadillac CTS-V, Acura NSX, Honda FCV Concept, Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, Infiniti Q60 concept, Lexus GS-F, Audi Q7, Mercedes GLE and two new products from Buick including a crossover and a convertible. Some other reveals are still a mystery, but we expect to see a huge performance announcement from Ford, including the introduction of the Focus RS to North America, as well as a possible Raptor successor and even a new flagship sports car!
The first time I saw the 2015 Chevrolet Corvette Z06, I couldnít wait for the day to come when Iíd be able to finally drive one.
As the months went by, specifications began to surface. The new Z06 would get a supercharged V8, a choice of transmissions, the most down force ever applied to a street car by Chevrolet and some of the stickiest road-legal tires known to man. My anticipation grew and I began to wonder if thereís any possible way the new Z06 could live up to my expectations? The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray with the Z51 package is so good, how much better could the Z06 really be?
It was finally time to answer these burning questions. I was whisked away to Spring Mountain Motorsports Ranch to sample the 2015 Z06 where it belongs; on the track. In a few short laps I had my answers Ė there is no disappointment in the Z06ís performance and itís in an entirely different league than the Stingray.
Quickly becoming one of the world's most important motorshows, the LA Auto Show is packing a long list of big debuts this year.
From small crossovers like the Mazda CX-3 and Honda HR-V to outrageous performance machines like the Shelby GT350 and Cadillac ATS-V Coupe there's no shortage of important products.
On the luxury end Mercedes will relaunch the Maybach brand with an ultra-luxurious version of the S-Class while Bentley aims to impress with a new Mulsanne-based convertible.
Other big debuts include the BMW X5 M and X6 M, the 2016 Acura ILX, Porsche Cayenne GTS, the new all-wheel drive Jaguar F-Type, an updated Ford Explorer, Scion's new iM hatchback concept and a show car that will preview the future of Audi.
