The North American International Auto Show's Biggest Debuts

Each January, the world’s automakers bring their greatest new products to America’s signature Auto Show. The North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) is held in the core of the country’s automotive heartland – Detroit – but this year’s show brought more intros from foreign nameplates than the domestics.

Introductions ranged from fanciful concepts that forecast the future of transportation, to models that are ready for the showroom, and will be on sale in the coming months.

Many of this year’s debuts are on the practical end of the scale, but there was plenty flash, including a hot new sports sedan from Kia. The 2018 model of the Toyota Camry, the most popular car in America, brings a more aggressive face to the five-passenger sedan. The most popular truck in America, the Ford F-150, was shown in its updated 2018 trim.

Honda unveiled its latest generation of the Odyssey minivan, and Nissan brought a smaller take on the crossover SUV, with the launch of the Rogue Sport. General Motors rolled out a pair of redesigned crossover SUVs, the Chevrolet Traverse 3-row crossover and 2018 GMC Terrain compact SUV.
