The first auto show of 2013 has officially come to a close, kids. We've had a busy couple of days here in Detroit Rock City, and this show has indeed had its share of major reveals. (You've probably heard about this new Corvette thing.) But in case you missed a single post from our obsessive coverage, we've wrangled them all up for you in one easy-to-scan post. Thanks for watching, and we'll be back at it next month in Chicago.

59China's GAC Group brings E-jet Concept, and bad translation, to Cobo

Automotive conglomerate GAC Group was the lone representative of the Chinese auto industry at the Detroit Auto Show this year, showing two near-production, alternative powertrain Trumpchi-branded vehicles, as well as a new concept car.

1292014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra show all their sides in Detroit

There could hardly be more riding on the next-generation General Motors full-size pickup trucks, so the automaker has wisely made sure to have a selection of different models on hand at the Detroit Auto Show to show off. The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and 2014 GMC Sierra were both officially introduced last month at a stand-alone reveal, and now they'll be on display for the public to see in various body configurations and trim levels.

23Fiat 500 Cattiva and Abarth Tenebra concepts showcase design to enhance personality

Fiat brought out two new design concepts at the Detroit Auto Show, both intended to expand the appeal of its 500 Turbo and 500 Abarth models with upgraded and unique appointments inside and out.

272014 Jeep Compass/Patriot sing their swan songs with a six-speed automatic

Unless the governor, Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne, gives them a reprieve, the 2014 Jeep Compass and Patriot are expected to meet their makers sometime next year. Should they perish, it's a shame that it would happen just as they've shed the continuously variable transmission that was their major bugbear, and just as the Compass has gotten its best looks yet.

100Shelby unveils tuned Ford Focus ST, widebody GT500 Super Snake

Shelby American has made its name tuning various Ford products, and now the Focus ST can be added to this list. Just introduced at the Detroit Auto Show, the Shelby Focus ST doesn't add any extra horsepower under the hood, but it should still make sizable gains in performance thanks to an upgraded suspension, brakes and exhaust systems. Also on hand at the Shelby display was a widebody version of the powerful Shelby GT500 Super Snake.

21Mazda6 Skyactiv-D Racecar ready to bring diesel to Grand-Am

It may not be quite as radical as some of the company's past rotary racers, but the new Mazda6 Skyactiv-D racecar does have a notable powertrain underhood: the automaker's brand-new clean diesel four-cylinder engine.

1242014 Acura MDX Prototype is exactly what we expected

Yep, it's the new MDX. And despite being totally redone, it looks exactly like we expected. That is, it's an up-sized version of the RDX crossover with fancy LED lights stolen from the RLX sedan. And while that might not sound too exciting, we have to say, it is handsome – certainly a more cohesive, refined design than the angular, beak-tastic model that's currently on sale.

145Acura NSX Concept is pretty on the inside, too [w/video]

The Acura NSX is still a couple years away from production (isn't it always?), but Acura has taken the dark window tint off last year's concept and opened the doors to show us what the interior of the car looks like. From what we can tell on the show-floor display, Acura's hybrid supercar will not only have a sexy exterior design, it will look great from the inside as well, but Acura pointed out that this is just "one possible direction" the interior could go. We suppose that means we can look f

992014 Cadenza is Kia's take on the Hyundai Azera

No, this is not the oh-so pleasantly named Quoris rear-wheel-drive flagship sedan – this is Kia's new front-drive entry into the North American market, the Cadenza. (If that sounds familiar, it's because Kia has long used the Cadenza name in other markets.) And while it's a sharp-looking thing, it's not exactly an original masterpiece. Peel away that slick exterior and you'll find a trusty Hyundai Azera doing the grunt work.

1712014 Cadillac ELR wears a suave suit with Volt underpants

The Cadillac design and engineering teams were smiling like a bunch of proud papas here in Detroit this morning, as the Wreath and Crest crew pulled the curtain back on their 2014 ELR. The house was packed for the ELR's coming out party, and reaction was enthusiastic amongst the murmuring media, as far as we could gather, while the flashes were firing.

2702014 Lexus IS brings boldest design yet to entry-level luxury

Lexus is evidently dead serious about removing some of the starch from its collar, as evidenced by the boldly styled new IS sedan just unveiled here at the Detroit Auto Show. We didn't know what to make of Lexus' entry-level sport sedan when we first saw images of it earlier this week. Dominated by the gaping maw of a spindle grille and flanked by headlamps with Nike swoosh daytime running lamps, the photos showed a distinctive (if not completely cohesive) design. Having now seen the design in t

202Ford Atlas Concept carries the weight of the F-150 on its shoulders [w/video]

Ford has taken a shot at the freshly unveiled Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra with the Atlas Concept. Unveiled at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, the brutish pickup gives us a glimpse at what the next-generation F-150 may bring to the table. With active wheel shutters and a "smart" chin spoiler capable of altering the vehicle's aerodynamics on the fly, Ford says the concept offers substantially better fuel efficiency than the company's current pickup offerings. There are no drivetrain specifics a

42014 Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible runs topless through Motown

Looking cool in blue (better than the Grimace-purple we saw a few weeks ago), with strong, tailored bodywork and a one-percenter-approved face, the 2013 Bentley GT Speed Convertible is right at home with all the exotic metal on the floor of Cobo Center here at the Detroit Auto Show.

372014 Quattroporte kicks off 50th anniversary for Maserati with new V6, AWD

It's not that often that we get to talk about a new Maserati model, but that's all about to change. The Italian automaker is using the 2014 Quattroporte to begin a lineup expansion that will soon grow to no fewer than five models. Entering its sixth generation, the Quattroporte has been completely redesigned, and is also adding a new V6 engine and all-wheel drive.

30Nissan Resonance Concept gives glimpse of next Murano

The Nissan Resonance Concept has bowed at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show, giving the world a glimpse at the company's future design direction for crossovers. Specifically, the concept heralds what the next-generation Murano may look like once it touches down. Nissan has already confirmed the successor to the big crossover's throne will be produced in Mississippi for the first time. With a "floating" roof and dynamic head lamp arrays, the Resonance boasts a far more athletic appearance than the snub-

582014 Nissan Versa Note pushes the little hatchback forward

Alright, truth time: The Nissan Versa isn't exactly our favorite car in the subcompact class. It's certainly competent, reliable transportation, but it's hardly an emotional purchase choice. Perhaps this new version of the Versa, then, can change our minds a bit. Meet the Versa Note – the cuter, five-door version of the li'l sedan, making its debut here at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show.

1172014 Audi RS7 is a 189-mph terror

If you have a burning desire to take yourself and four friends to 189 miles per hour, the 2014 Audi RS7 Sportback can help you out. The luxury hatchback bowed at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show today, complete with a 560-horsepower twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine thrashing under the hood. Getting to 62 mph takes a shave under 3.9 seconds thanks in part to the 553 pound-feet of torque on hand from just 1,750 rpm. While the base car comes with an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph, custo

202014 BMW Z4 offers minor refinements with a majorly orange wrapper

The redesigned BMW Z4 was rolled out onto the show floor at the Detroit Auto Show, with the example in question being an sDrive35is variant, with the just-less-than-screaming Hyper Orange Package. The exclusive colorway includes the metallic orange paintjob, as well as trim-specific seats, stitching and accents for the interior. More importantly, the 35is driveline means that you'll find a high-output version of the turbocharged 3.0-liter N54 engine, here outputting 335 horsepower and 332 pound-

232014 Audi SQ5 ditches diesel, still packs a punch

Over in Europe-land, the Audi SQ5 is a diesel-powered monster capable of sending a whopping 479 pound-feet of torque to its wheels. Naturally, this beast isn't coming to the States, but that doesn't mean we're missing out on the whole SQ5 experience altogether. At the Detroit Auto Show this week, Audi is debuting a new gasoline-powered version of the hot crossover, and while it's not quite the oil-burning dreamboat we've lusted after from afar, we certainly wouldn't kick it out of bed.

40Volkswagen shows off performance-ish Passat concept

As part of its 2013 Detroit Auto Show debut package, Volkswagen has rolled out a sportier version of the Passat sedan, though it's strictly conceptual for now. A small dose of go-fast visuals have been added to the handsome Volkswagen, including 19-inch wheels, carbon-capped mirrors, an advanced front lighting system, LED taillamps and dual exhaust. Some carbon bits and upgraded leather are found inside the cabin, as well.

        You really do hate everything, don't you? With all of your incoherent postings, I've deduced that you work for Autoblog and are paid to stir the pot to get the comment count up.

      Wasn't able to attend in person but here are my observations Chevy/GMC pickups; not a truck guy but I keep hearing these efforts were not enough. Seems the basis for all these trucks are old ideas sprinkled with new 'gadgets' Fiat500 Cattiva/Tenebra; we're just at the beginning of the hundreds of special 500 models Jeep Compass/Patriot; good for Chrysler/Fiat in dropping CVT, still terrible car Shelby Focus ST; not a mustang! Hope they don't drag his name down Mazda6 Diesel racer; kind of excited about this, still don't like GrandAM though Acura MDX; time for something new Acura NSX; looking forward to this, whenever it comes out Kia Cadenza; does this brand really need another, more luxury based car? Cadillac ELR; I love that Caddy doesn't look like anyone else, this is great Lexus IS; stale old bread Ford Atlas; looks cool, won't get made Bentley Conti GT; not sure I care about this Maserati Quattroporte; this or JagXJ, MercS, AudiA8 or others, hot segment right now Nissan Versa Note; ummmm, new competitor for Honda Fit? Nissan Resonance; like the shape and angles, hope it looks something like this C7 Corvette; still suspect of interior but looks good and step in right direction Audi RS7; the most/best understated RS model, love the 'sleeper' aspect of this BMW Z4; both like and dislike this still Audi SQ5; please Audi don't make the same mistake as BMW, not every car in your line up needs to have a M/S or RS variant VW Passat; kind of a 'R' model but not really, don't waste our time BMW M6 GC; I think this company has lost the plot Mini JCW Paceman; hate this car MB E63 AMG; may warm to new looks but still love last gen Honda Urban SUV; light at the end of the tunnel? I hope so Toyota Furia; interesting and looks good, have no faith it will ever look like this VW Tiguan R; this or Audi SQ5, depends on $ Hyundai HCD-14; is it just me or does this look like some Citroen/Puegot concepts, like it though MB E Class; like what MB is doing right now Jeep GC, diesel & SRT; still can't get over quality concerns BMW 320i; I like the 3 and this should be good seller VW Crossblue; Suburban fighter? Not sure VW is aiming at that war horse Lincoln MKC; I like it, enough differentiation and luxury feel, fingers crossed Destino, Bob Lutz; not sure what to think. Serious effort or looking for buy in/out from major OEM? BMW 4; just think this is silly Infinity Q50; this is a new car right? Dodge Dart GT; a new Civic Si? Porsche Cayenne T S; if you really want 50 extra hp MB CLA; this, the Corvette and the ELR are the stars of the show Seems like a great show and may go on a public day. Good job once again by AB.

      I really thought the 2015 model year vehicles would present us with something new and creative, fueled by technology and a changing world. But what do we get? The same old stuff we've been getting for years. I guess engineers are too restricted by federal regulations and design chiefs are stuck picking copycat sketches.

      The Auto Shows has come and gone? I don't think so! It doesn't open to the public until the 19th. If someone didn't know better, they might miss it, due to your misleading article.
