2011 Detroit Auto Show Debuts: A to Z Guide

|

[Updated] The
2011 Detroit Auto Show, also known by its North American International Auto Show [NAIAS] moniker, is arguably one of the world's most important motor shows. Held at the Cobo Center in Detroit, this year’s event will open its gates to the public on January 15, but as usual, we’ll be covering the action from the press days starting Monday, January 10. The show's organizers are anticipating some 30 to 40 world premieres, with manufacturers gearing up for what is expected to be a much better year in terms of sales.

We’ll be constantly updating the list available below, as the new models and concept cars hit the showroom floor.

your glimpse of honda's new promising civic is that of the coupe, but it is the hotter selling sedan that is expected to debut. if we are lucky, we will see both! cannot wait.

gee, it is odd to see the wraps on the new vw, as it has been seen in the flesh already.

A real home run from Chrysler! Looking forward to our N.A. version of the Fiat 500, Chrysler 300c & Jeep Compass. The 200 S as shown is a stunning surprise. Like being at SEMA again.

The Honda Civic unveiling should be hot!

Love the Mini Cooper.

Not crazy about the hatchbacks/wagons from Ford and Kia. The Mazda3 & Golf do it better.

My much anticipated car? The Honda Civic. The '11 still looks sweet. The sketch of the 2012=sex on wheels;)

^ YESYESYES... so over the small hatches, wagons, mini minivans. Too predictable & non exciting as shown, especially the Ford variant.

The price drop on the heavily equipped 300 is the most significant buy, I would say. Love the classic large American sedan reborn in that stunning body! I am drooling to drive one.

The Chrysler 300 is elegant, still sporty and gangsta! Everything I like. The 200 Super S? WOW! Pimp my ride. It is sweeter than sweet, fella Scoopsters ;)! It has to be the biggest surprise of the entire event.

The loads of hatchback clones are for CAFE standards. Nothing exciting with these.

Like most posters, the Civic, Mini, 300, 200 S Super edition are the biggest news getters.

To each his own.

The U.S. is lacking in the "real" large car arena. The 300 and Charger are breaths of fresh air in a sea of lesser big cars like the faltering Mercury Grand Marquis, lame duck Lincoln Town Car, aged FWD Cadillac DTS and nice but doomed Buick Lucerne.

The RWD 300 Limited and "C" in particular are stately vehicles. Thankfully, Chrysler and Dodge divisions approved upon them annually and most significantly for 2011-12 with the advent of the new variety. I turned into a fan after years of loyalty to GM when Chevy shrunk the Impala and Pontiac butchered the Bonneville. Many of you might be too young to remember the large rear wheel drive sedan, coupes and wagons of the 1970's, like the Plymouth Fury III and Grand Sedan, Dodge Royal Monaco, Chrysler Newport, New Yorker, Town & Country wagon and Imperial, Lincoln Mark series with designer trim, Ford LTD, Country Squire wagon and Mercury Monterey, Chevrolet Bel Aire, Impala and Caprice and Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham, Coupe DeVille, Sedan DeVille and Buick Electra Park Avenue, LeSabre and Oldsmobile 98 Regency.

Going a step beyond, I hear there will be new SRT-8 models of the Charger and 300 to attract the youth. For me, that is anyone under 76 years young.

That, fellow poster is when some of your fellow posters lament the passing of the big cars of yore and applaud Chrysler Corporation for not forgetting old geezers like me.

^Amen! Happy driving. My dad is 90 yrs. young and just stop driving. He would be proud. He is reminiscent about his first few cars and his pride and joy 1973 Plymouth Satellite with a slant-6 engine. He still claims it was the best engine ever made and to work on in the family's attached one-car garage. He really likes the new '11 or '12 300 but thinks the 2011 Charger R/T is "too flashy"! It is all about choice as someone very eloquently put in on a site I read this a.m.

no crazy about anything from gm or ford this time around.

^ I'm looking forward to the new Chryslers, but nothing else. GM doesn't seem to have anything for this Pontiac driver at NAIAS.

counting down to the hours of the civic debut! 2nd, the 300 by chrysler. should be a great yr. for chrysler, honda, buick and mini cooper.

I'm still pissed over the Buick Regal GS being slower than expected and NOT HAVING ALL WHEEL DRIVE!!! It's making it's debut too at the show. It still looks good though. I wonder how it'll do at the show and sales wise?

The 300 looks elegant.The 200 is a great improvement over the Sebring. I like the Buick Verano as well. Overall the US car industry appears to be coming back. I'm gratified to be finally seeing some progress with US designed in refinement,performance,quality,and handling in their cars for once. It's about time.

You should rename the Volkswagen NMS to Passat already in the article because it's been confirmed and the U.S Passat looks like the Euro Passat by the sketches and 2 hrs ad 10 minute till the reveal tonight.

Really into the new jeep grand Cherokee. Chrysler has done an amazing job this year.

Not a fan of the funky niche vehicles (like the new Kia's), rather the traditional offerings, including coupes (like Civic Si), sedans (like 300, Civic), suv's (Jeep GC), minivans (Town & Country), others.
