Exclamation 2018 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS)

First preview of what to expect posted by justauto.com

Quote:
Known world premieres for the 2018 North American International Auto Show are noted below, with the latest one, the Mercedes-AMG 53, now added.

Information on the following models can be found by searching PLDB, just-auto's global vehicle database. Simply click on the link at the end of this list.

Model year for North American markets in parentheses

Audi A7 Sportback (2019): slightly shorter than old model, MLB Evo architecture, production at Neckarsulm will commence in late February

BMW X2 (2018) F39: A rival for the Range Rover Evoque, will be built in Regensburg but should also be made in Brazil and China

GAC concept: no details as yet, will follow the EnSpirit design study from the 2017 NAIAS

Hyundai Veloster (2019): unlike almost all rivals, Hyundai believes there is still a worthwhile amount of potential sales volume in this segment

Infiniti EV: few official details as yet but it won't be related to the Leaf; instead, a larger model on a different architecture

Kia Forte (2019): to be again known as the Cerato in some countries, will be twinned with the replacement for the cee'd series which becomes the Ceed

Lexus LF-1 Limitless Concept: created by the CALTY design studio in Southern California, a "flagship crossover", other details are yet to be announced

Mercedes-AMG CLS 53 Hybrid (2019): powered by the new M256 in-line 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol engine and a 50kW motor, CLS 63 will also be added to the range

Ram 1500 (2019): new steel frame, production due to commence in January at Sterling Heights, outgoing remains in production at Warren Truck and Saltillo

Volkswagen Jetta (2019): seventh generation model, Puebla is due to commence building it in December and US market sales should commence during Q1

Toyota Avalon (2019): 370B project code, GA-K architecture, production will start at Georgetown 1 in February, was developed at the TTC in Michigan

Future product program intelligence

Get more data on vehicle lifetime and future product plans with PLDB from QUBE.
I do hope the Ford Focus (2019) [N/C] gets added to this list. If it comes there.

The next "big thing" in luxury trends will be the big coupe crossovers... Audi, BMW and now Lexus.

Focus will likely be first shown at a Euro show, then make its way over here.

They might wait till Chicago for the Ranger since that one tends to be more truck focused

Eh, I doubt it - they'll likely want Ranger to be front and center.

Re: 2018 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS)

The Infiniti EV might finally be the LE that was talked about long time ago.

Re: 2018 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS)

What are the chances that Ford will use Detroit to show of the new 2019 Ford Explorer or is that too early? If not the Explorer, I think the next likely vehicle shown would be the 2019 Edge facelift. The Focus would probably be shown in Europe first, likely at Geneva in March before coming to North America at NY in April. For Lincoln they may show a concept of the rumored Aviator at Detroit. Since LA was all about Lincoln, I'm hoping Ford has something big to show at NAIAS maybe both the NG Explorer and the Edge Facelift or the new Ranger..
