The Chicago Auto Show -- assumed by at least one journalist to be Detroit's greatest threat -- is a scant two-and-a-half weeks away. That means it's time for the first bits of info on the vehicles that will be showcased in the million-plus square feet of McCormick Hall.
The not-so-sexy debuts will include the Chevrolet Traverse (or whatever it ends up being called) doing its CUV thing on GM's Lambda platform. Also on deck for its first at-bat will be Suzuki's nipped and tucked version of the Nissan Frontier, possibly called the Suzuki Equator. The party at VW will be all about its new US-market minivan, the Routan -- which we know is a made-up word, but sounds to us like some sort of primate, or maybe an equatorial vegetable.

So far, the top spot for debut hotness is held by the Dodge Challenger, which has lately been photographed running around naked just about everywhere. There's a rumor -- or a guess, whichever you prefer -- that the also recently-naked Camaro could make an appearance in an attempt to put a beatdown on the Challenger. Other rumors have the debut of the production Camaro still a year away. Either way, Autoblog will be there to give you the steady feed. Stay tuned.

      I'd expect the production Camaro reveal to be LA as it goes on sale probably JAN/FEB 09. Or sometime late summer. I think production starts in OCT or NOV. Or so the rumors go.

      The 2009 Buick Lacrosse is also going to debut at the Chicago Auto Show and go on sale late this fall.
        • 7 Years Ago
        THAT WOULD BE SO COOL

      Chicago Auto Show is the best there is, and Chicago, the City of big shoulders is so beautiful and clean. I just can't wait for the 100th to open its doors! My kind of town

      Where is the Fusion/Milan restyling?
        • 7 Years Ago
        ive heard that the Fusion is at Washington that starts on the 23 January, the Milan will be at Chicago( Mercury's usual debuting place), the MkZ could go until NY or at Chicago as well.

        Probably at LA or NY.

      Someone I know that works at a Chevy dealership said that the Camaro is going into production now. Those cars being available later in the year.

      I just want to make absolutely sure that the CTS Coupe is there. Otherwise, I'm off to Detroit this weekend. And the mercury is hovering around 0 in the Midwest this weekend.

      The Chicago Auto Show is the best! There is so much floor space you can always get a good view of the cars. Plus Chicago is an amazing city.

      Is there anyone left who hasn't been overexposed to the Challenger and Camaro by now?

      Both these cars were revealed at NAIAS 2006 and have been shilled like crazy--especially the Camaro--since then. I'm suprised there's any excitement left.

      I've already got my tickets, can't wait for the show. I've gone every year for as long as I can remember and it's always fun. I especially like the additions that Jeep and Dodge have made to the show over the last few years where you can actually ride in their vehicles.

        Where can I get advance (and cheap) tickets for the show?
