Audi, Porsche will attend, but VW sits it out with Ford, Opel and Volvo

Volkswagen will not display its core brand at the Paris motor show this year, the latest and most prominent carmaker to steer clear of the biennial industry gathering.

Detroit

But it may return someday

Audi announced today that it will be the third German luxury automaker to leave the Detroit Auto Show. The other two that announced their departures before were BMW and Mercedes-Benz. The official statement is below:

Take a ride in Sin City without a driver

At this past Consumer Electronics Show (CES), autonomous vehicle technology developer Aptiv and its partner Lyft, offered rides in autonomous vehicles to show goers. That test has evolved into a much larger program. The two companies announced that 30 BMW 5 Series sedans equipped with Aptiv's autonomous technology will be ferrying the general public in Las Vegas.

It could anchor a larger auto festival, including the Grand Prix

There's a new twist in the ongoing discussions over switching the time frame for Detroit's annual auto show from January to October. Hometown automaker General Motors has floated an idea to remake the North American International Auto Show as a consumer-focused event in June.

We talk about driving the 2018 Ford F-150 and 2019 Ram 1500 Tradesman we have at the office this week.

Here there be dragons

McLaren must be doing good business with its McLaren Special Operations (MSO) special edition supercars because it has just released another, and like with the Canada Commission, this one takes its inspiration from a specific country, namely China. It's called the 2018 McLaren 570GT Cabbeen Collection, and was developed in conjunction with a Chinese fashion designer simply referred to as Mr. Cabbeen. We suspect that it received the name "collection" because of the connection to fashion, despite

Jaguar celebrates the 50th anniversary of its iconic XJ sedan

Jaguar is celebrating the 50th anniversary of its elegant luxury sedan, the XJ, with a stylish and supercharged new model called the XJ50. This nod to eight generations of XJ comes in long-wheelbase format and is powered by either a 340-horsepower supercharged V6, or snarling 470-hp supercharged V8. While the V6 model is available with a choice of rear- or all-wheel drive, the more powerful V8 is offered only in rear-wheel drive form.

Jeep gets a big SUV again

Jeep has finally revealed its first three-row SUV since the Commander, and the new one is called, as we expected, Grand Commander. And it looks just like we expected from leaked images and patent drawings. It pulls a bit of inspiration from the Jeep Yuntu concept, but it generally looks like a much bigger, stretched-out Compass. We do see a bit of Renegade inspiration in the D-pillar, though.

Geely Concept Icon is meant to look like an app icon

Completely redesigned model is first Lexus on TNGA platform

Lexus gave us a good preview of the new ES luxury sedan ahead of its Beijing reveal, and now we get to see the real thing. Visually, it's pretty typical Lexus fare. It has the ever-controversial "spindle" grille up front with either form-following slats on standard models, or a sportier mesh on the new F Sport trim, a first for the model. It's about 2 inches, give or take a few tenths, longer both in overall length and wheel base and wider than the previous model. The F Sport also adds a rear sp

Following last week's big leak, here's what more there is to say

Mercedes has officially unveiled its Mercedes-Maybach Ultimate Luxury concept following a leak of most of the details last week. As we learned last week, the unusual looking sedan-SUV crossbreed is fully electric with four motors producing a whopping 750 horsepower. Combined with an 80 kWh battery, Mercedes estimates it should have a range of over 200 miles on the European test cycle. It also can handle extremely fast charging from DC chargers outputting 350 kW. Mercedes claims this allows it to

This follows BMW's plans to skip the 2019 Detroit Auto Show

BMW recently announced its intention to skip next year's North American International Auto Show in Detroit, issuing a statement about re-evaluating its trade-show strategy that amounted to the age-old "It's not you, it's me." Only this time it appears to be true: Bimmer is now planning to significantly pare back its presence at the 2019 show in Frankfurt, in its own backyard.
