Default Detroit Auto Show pictures

Attaching some pictures from the 2012 Detroit Auto Show.
My thoughts:
1) Stars of the attraction: Acura NSX, New Ford Fusion, Dodge Dart, Maserati SUV, Subaru BRZ
2) Notable Absentees: Ferrari, Lambo, RR, Aston Martin, JLR, Harley
3) Indian COnnection: Tata eMo(see corresponding thread for the pics), Nissan Versa a.k.a Nissan Sunny, Chevy Spark a.k.a Beat

Virtual Ken Block ride. The person has to just stand in the circle and when the video starts it seems the car is doing rounds around the person. Cool stuff for the kids.

Thanks for the lovely pictures of the show.

What is the car in the fourth picture, is that a Ford, or maybe Nissan? Cannot see the logo on front can only guess, It looks very aggressive and sporty.

Also in the Acura Stall first picture is it a Civic? Were Honda/Acura put together considering they are sister companies?

OMG the Acura looks hot, my cousin use to have one in the U.S. Just love those exhaust notes. Meanwhile wonder how the Cooper traveled all up there.

Default 2015 Detroit International Motor Show: Highlights

Hello All BHPians,
Note: This is my first thread on this site and hence request mods to merge this with the most relevant post if required.
I was fortunate to have a quick visit to the 2015 International Motor show on 17th January in Detroit as I am currently in Michigan on a long term work assignment. Frankly, did not get enough time to spend the whole day at the venue since I was accompanied by my colleagues and friends who had some other plans after the show. But I'll let the pictures do the talking. The emphasis was on electric hybrid technology and almost all manufacturers had either their prototypes or the concept models on display. Audi had showcased the A3-etron prototype, Mercedes had their concept driverless car, Chevy had their 2016 Volt, BMW showcased the i3 concept and the i8 proto, Volvo had their XC90 SUV in an hybrid avatar. Moreover, there were component manufacturers like ZF, Aisin and Denso displaying their product portfolio. Really surprised that Eaton was NOT a part of this show and did not have any stalls! ZF was celebrating their 100 years journey by running some quizzes and were giving out some excellent portable cellphone chargers to the winners (BTW, I was one of them ).
Since it was the first day for general audience and was a part of a long weekend, there was a huge rush and the area looked similar to a typical Crowford market or Dadar station
Well, here are the pictures. Enjoy!

BMW had their bikes on display along with the i3 and the i8. An interesting quote that caught everybody's attention was on a Jagaur's windshield which read, "Long Live the Manual".

Post 2016 Nissan Titan debuts in Detroit !

An all new 2016 Nissan Titan debuted in Detroit. The picsk ups are dominated by the Detroit 3 - GM, Ford & Dodge. Even Toyota has had a very tough time cracking that market.

The US pick up truck buyers are very very loyal . Cant see how Nissan is even going to make a dent in the sales. The specs of the new Titan are not ground breaking either. But, an interesting addition nevertheless. Lets see how it pans out.

This is not Nissan's first entry into the US pick-up market. They've been selling pickup trucks here for years.

Yes, they have been selling for a while from 2004. The 2004 Titan was an afterthought in the market. And they did not redesign it until now for 2016. 12 years !! That's a long long time in such a tough market like the pick ups. Plus the reliability of the titan has been horrendous. Numerous brake/rotors issues, check engine lights and poor build quality and reliability doomed it.

The 2016 was redesigned as a clean slate. However, I don't see it making any impact if at all.
