Re: 2018 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS)

As likely as it may sound that they're going to release the 2019 Edge, Explorer and maybe Ranger in Detroit, it doesn't seem likely. They don't look finished enough.





The MK4 Focus is wearing the same layer of camouflage as the 2019 Hyundai Veloster.

Re: 2018 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS)

The Edge is ready, so it's likely.

I suppose it's possible we see an Explorer "concept", but I kind of doubt it. I think that might be one that they just reveal the production model sometime next year either at a show or its own event.

NAIAS will likely be Ford only as far as debuts go, with an Aviator 'concept' shown later at NY or something.

Current Vehicles:
2009 Ford Flex Limited w/ AWD
Light Ice Blue/White Suede Roof | Med. Lt. Stone Interior | Vista Roof
2018 Ford Mustang GT Convertible
Lightning Blue | Black Top | Black Interior

Re: 2018 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS)

my forecast is;

Naias, Ranger and Edge.

Chicago: Aviator concept with the announcement of the new platform for the Chigaco plant.

Production version of the Lexus UX is also likely.

Re: 2018 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS)

Ranger will be out spring of 2019 I believe, which would line it up perfectly for a 1 year advance concept peak.

I loved the 2nd and 4th Gen Supras! There is nothing to like visually about the mules that have been photographed. It may turn out to be a great car, but I highly doubt I'll find it attractive.

All Infiniti interiors have looked exactly the same forever now.

From what I've seen, it looks ugly with that bizarre bulge in the front bumper.

I didn't like the silver plug on the bottom spoke. Three spoke for the sake of being three spoke. The open bottom on the LE concept looks cleaner.

I honestly don't like when companies close off the bottom with accents. Lincoln, Acura, Volkswagen Touraeg, etc. Lincoln's is okay though. I would have preferred an open bottom spoke and wood around the rim.
