General Motors Cadillac ATS, was named 2013 North American Car of the Year. This is built in Lansing, Michigan.
Mark your calendars the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) will be held at Cobo Center in Detroit, January 13-26, 2014. The public show will be Saturday, January 18 - Sunday, January 26, 2014.
Car culture runs deep in Michigan, and the automotive spotlight will be on at the annual North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit where new vehicles showcase futuristic designs, engineering marvels and green initiatives. The North American International Auto Show is among the most prestigious auto shows in the world, providing unparalleled access to the automotive products, people and ideas that matter most - up close and in one place.
In addition to new and award-winning vehicles, visitors to the NAIAS experience hundreds of vehicles on display, representing the most innovative designs in the world. In 2013 more than 50 new vehicles, including 41 world premieres, were unveiled at the NAIAS. Visitors saw the highly-anticipated 2014 Chevrolet Corvette C7, the all-new Cadillac ELR luxury electric coupe, the next generation 2015 Ford F-150 pickup, the 2014 Jeep Liberty and Grand Cherokee Diesel and the GMC 2014 Sierra and Silverado.
The North American Car and Truck of the Year awards are also handed out each year at the NAIAS. In 2013 the Cadillac ATS and the Ram 1500 pickup took home the top honors. Both made right here in Michigan, the event served as a perfect showcase for the next generation of Michigan’s automotive heritage.
The Auto Show is each year at Cobo Center in Detroit. The newly renovated and expanded space allows attendees to take in the sights through the stunning new three-story glass atrium overlooking the Detroit River. Other renovations include repurposing the arena into a 40,000 sq. ft. ballroom, more exhibit space and a giant video display wall welcoming guests to the Cobo Center. Sustainable initiatives in the renovations are also helping to reduce energy and operating costs.
No trip to the NAIAS is complete without taking some time to explore Detroit. From the tastes and sounds to the sights and culture Detroit is the Motor City. Stop in at the Detroit Institute of Arts, experience the Hitsville USA, skate through Campus Martius Park or try your hand at featherbowling at Cadieux Café. Just up the road at The Henry Ford automotive enthusiast can explore the Driving America exhibit that tells the fascinating story of people, cars and our culture.
