General Motors Preps for 2016 North American International Auto Show
The Detroit Auto Show opens on Monday to provide early peeks at more than 50 concept and production vehicles to more than 5000 journalists, showing off vehicles automakers plan to deliver to American consumers in the upcoming months.
The North American International Auto Show launches its media days on Monday, January 11, though many manufacturers are offering off-site reveals throughout the weekend ahead of the event. More than 800,000 consumers are expected to visit the show floor from January 16 to 24, 2016, and will even bring a most esteemed guest: the President of the United States, Barack Obama.
As a teaser to news-hungry car fans, General Motors has released early photographs as they prep their Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC booths. While the manufacturer hasn't yet revealed much hard news about what it plans to reveal at the show, Automotive News is saying the Buick brand intends to show off a sporty coupe concept about the size of the Chevrolet Camaro sports car and a Chinese-built mid-sized crossover SUV called the Envision.
Chevrolet leads the weekend's reveals with today’s launch of the 2017 Cruze Hatchback (shown above). Developed with all the technologies and dynamic driving attributes of the all-new 2016 Cruze sedan, the new hatchback promises a functional and sporty choice for customers. Looking a bit like the now-retired Opel Astra, the Cruze hatchback will join the Colorado and Trax as the latest Chevrolet model to push into new segments when it goes on sale in fall 2016.
