    Featured: Biden touts Detroit's resurgence in Motor City appearance
    Vice President Tours Auto Show With Big Three CEOs 1389900480

    The downside of being the Vice President of the United States, Joe Biden says, is that he's not allowed to drive anymore. A chauffer might suit most politicians just fine, but for the son of a car dealer, such restrictions are grating. His 1967 Chevy Corvette, a wedding gift from his dad, sits ...

    Video: A closer look at the 2015 Ford F-150
    1389893400

    Despite having to share Ford's Detroit Auto Show stand with the hot new 2015 Mustang, the brand-new F-150 was arguably an even more important debut. Why? Ford moved some 700,000 examples of its F-Series truck in 2012, making it not only the best-selling pickup truck, but the top-selling vehicle ...

    If there's a trend in the auto industry we can firmly get behind, it's the small, light and affordable rear-drive coupe.

    Video: Watch the incredibly complicated operation of Porsche's new targa roof
    1389747480

    Despite Porsche having claimed the name, targa tops are nothing new. In addition to the semi-roofless version of the 911, plenty of cars in the past have used removable roof panels – the new Corvette Stingray has one (as have prior generations), and this type of open-air experience has been ...

    Detroit: 2014 Scion FR-S and tC Monogram Series are some spruced coupes
    1389745680

    Scion is in the unusual position of offering a pair of inexpensive sports two-doors, the rear-drive FR-S coupe and the front-drive tC hatchback. Despite offering outwardly similar size and form factors, the two have vastly different characters, chiefly because of their different drivetrain ...

    1389736620

    One doesn't normally think of Acura offering anything to mix it up with the SRT Viper, Lamborghini Gallardo, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, Nissan GT-R, Audi R8 and Ferrari 458 Italia (at least while the NSX is still off in the ether), but that's exactly what's about to happen. Honda's premium outpost is ...

    1389729480

    With the polar vortex fresh in the minds of Autoblog's Detroit-based staff, we're finding it funny that any manufacturer would choose January in the Motor City to show off a new and highly anticipated convertible to the general media and public for the first time.

    Herein lies the broom that will sweep away both the TL and the TSX, and its name is the Acura TLX Prototype.

    Detroit: SRT Viper looks venomous in Stryker Green
    1389717660

    Back when the Viper wore the Dodge name, the car had a color palette that was as ostentatious as its exterior design. After launching the new Viper with relatively mellow colors like red, silver, black and white, SRT has since introduced eye-catching hues like TA Orange and Matte Black. The next ...

    Detroit: 2015 Volkswagen Golf R is an even hotter hatch
    1389716460

    I had a lovely first date with the Volkswagen Golf R a couple of years ago, blasting through the French Alps just before attending the 2011 Geneva Motor Show. I loved that car, and I'm super stoked to get behind the wheel of this new, 2015 model. Why? This R is based on the lighter ...

    1389714000

    When we first saw the 2015 Ford Mustang, much was made of its new, more expressive color palette, which includes the return of both yellow and orange in addition to a new grayish shade, Guard.

    If the all-new 2015 Subaru WRX has taken a good thing and made it great, then this should be, well, greater. Meet the range-topping WRX STI, packing more power, a decidedly more aggressive suspension tune, beefier looks, a giant wing and (woo!) gold wheels. Those spiffy BBS wheels and WRC ...

    Detroit: Lexus RC F is a predatory sport coupe with a 450-horsepower beating heart
    1389709200

    Take a look at that face. We can't be the only ones who see an automotive Predator staring back, right?
