We obsessively covered the 2015 Detroit Auto Show
For now, have a look through our roundup below to see everything that wowed us during this year's North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and stay tuned for our Best In Show picks later this week.
With its bright Sunrise Yellow paint, the 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek Special Edition is an easy model to spot on the floor of the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. Beyond the exclusive color, Subie's crossover gets a seven-inch touchscreen, all-weather package and a power moonroof. Get an order in quick though, because Subaru is only making 1,000 of these limited models with deliveries starting in the spring.
The Volvo XC90 R-Design at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show is covered in some gorgeous satin blue paint to cover its more aggressive front and rear design. However, the interior offers luxurious comfort with a mix of Nubuck and Nappa leather upholstery and upgraded trim. This is the XC90 for the driver who wants a touch of sport from their Swede.
Porsche knows that to keep up, a model has to keep evolving. For the latest 2015 evolution of the Cayenne Turbo S on display at the Detroit Auto Show, it now packs integral turbos housed directly in the exhaust manifolds. The move allows power to grow to 562 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque, while shedding a half-second off the sprint to 60. The German brand also claims that the improved version can lap the Nurburgring Nordschleife in a blink less than eight minutes.
The luxury crossover coupe isn't always the most loved auto segment in terms of styling, but Mercedes-Benz clearly sees room there to grow. The company's new GLE Coupe shows a new take on the styling to challenge the established BMW X6. Whether buyers opt for the GLE450 or GLE63, they get a mountain of power from either a twin-turbo V6 or V8, respectively, with 4Matic all-wheel drive. They're both on display at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.
The Acura NSX sports heavily tweaked styling for its latest debut at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. With a huge number of slashes, ducts, intakes and even a flying buttress in the C-pillar, the styling doesn't so much channel the air as bend it to the designer's will. In addition, the latest version sports a longitudinally mounted, twin-turbo V6 with a three-motor hybrid setup that powers all four wheels. Unfortunately, the Japanese brand is still keeping some very important specs for now.
The Porsche 911 Targa 4 GTS is doffing its intricate top at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show. Benefiting from both all-wheel drive and some extra power from the German brand, the latest take on this venerable sports coupe is aimed at buyers looking for something very specific. It also wears a tweaked front bumper, 911 Turbo S wheels and inside the company's Sport Plus seats to keep a hold on drivers.
It might be hard to spot BMW's changes for the 2015 6 Series family at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, but they are there. The biggest of the understated tweaks all come at the front end, but there is some new tech for buyers, as well, like full-LED headlights. The interior upgrades are equally subtle.
Four years ago we posted on the three-wheeled foam car that made it to the round-of-four in X-Prize competition. Its inventor, Lon Ballard, created the vehicle for the sole purpose of lowering the number of road fatalities and has spent the intervening years refining the idea, and beginning pilot production of electric and gas-powered variants.
The 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Custom Sport edition tries to give the truck an understated, more elegant design. The package adds body-color pieces to the bumpers and grill surround. In addition, it wears a little shine with chrome 20-inch wheels and matching trim on the door handles, mirror caps, side moldings. The whole look comes off as quite handsome of the black truck shown at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.
The next generation of the Ford F-150 Raptor pickup truck looks to be more off-road capable than ever before, combining a brand-new, specially designed, high-strength steel frame, aluminum bodywork, a 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine, a 10-speed automatic transmission and a new set of Fox Racing shocks. Read all about it right here.
