Detroit Auto Show to present dozens of all-new cars, trucks & crossovers

The Detroit Auto Show, which is scheduled to run from January 12 to January 25, will showcase a number of all-new cars, trucks and crossovers, and likely attract thousands of journalists, analysts and auto enthusiasts.

Organizers of the show say that various auto makers will display as many as 45 all-new vehicles at the show. They will display everything from plug-in hybrid cars to supercars. An eagerly-awaited hybrid supercar, the Acura NSX, is also expected to be presented at the show.

The show’s two-day media preview on January 12 and 13 is expected to attract more than 5,000 journalists from all over the world. Public attendance is expected to hit its highest levels since the beginning of the Great Recession.

Organizers have already received $5 million in preliminary ticket orders for the black tie charity gala, which will officially open the show.

While the last year’s pickup sales were dominated by Ford, Japanese companies like Nissan are expected to dominate that segment at the 2015 NAIAS.

Nissan will roll out a much-delayed replacement for its Titan pickup truck. The full-size model of the truck will compete with domestic models like Ford's newly redesigned F-150.

Toyota is preparing to launch its next-generation midsize pickup truck Tacoma. Toyota hopes that the new pickup truck will help it maintain its sales leadership that has come under assault from General Motors’ rival products. In addition, Toyota has plans to launch two new high-performance models for its Lexus luxury segment, including a 467hp version of its mid-range GS model.

The auto show, which is coming amid rising sales and declining fuel prices, will likely provide a further boost to demand for new vehicles.
