AUTOSHOW | 2012 NAIAS BIG THREE DEBUTS

Press Days, Industry Days, Designer’s Night and Charity Preview are done, and we begin mopping up looking forward to Tokyo, Chicago, and further down the year.

While the show had significant debuts from several import makes, ( Acura NSX and Lexus LF-LC come to mind ), below, we highlight significant debuts from each one of the big three with respect to design.

2013 Ford Fusion

While the MKZ concept is significant as well, the 2013 Fusion is garnering good press, winning both Autoweek’s Best In Show and the Eyes on Design Award, significant because its judged by peers in automotive design. Head over to Jalopnik and Motor Trend for the full story and image gallery on the Fusion. Don’t forget to the check out www.ford.com and visit the Ford stand at the NAIAS in Detroit ( shameless plug for our Ford guys. )

2013 Cadillac ATS

Below is the video for the 2013 Cadillac ATS, evolving Cadillac’s Art and Science theme on the smallest three-box proportion yet. Notable developments to the theme are the headlamp graphic extending almost to wheel centerline and the tiered decklid encompassing the CHMSL.

2013 Dodge Dart

The 2013 Dodge Dart signifies furthering a new front end signature for Dodge, and propagating the 2011 Charger rear end graphic- itself inspired by the 1966-1968 Charger.

    Chrysler has got to get this product right. It will be very interesting to see how the media and the public receive it.
