It's Day 2 of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit and the auto industry is set to unleash more of the hottest new cars, trucks, SUVs and concept cars. On the first day we saw hot new models like the sexy Lexus LC 500 sport coupe, Fiat Chrysler's new Pacifica minivan and the Audi hydrogen concept car. Here is what we have seen today:
Acura Precision concept car
Acura showed off a much more aggressive design flair as it unveiled its Precision concept car. The Precision has an extremely low, long profile that Acura describes as a “crouched and athletic stance” with “deeply sculpted side surfaces pouring over swelling rear wheel arches.” The vehicle is 84 inches wide, 204 inches long and 52 inches high.
Snafu at the unveiling of Nissan's Titan Warrior pickup
Nissan was all set unveil its big new Titan Warrior concept pickup at the auto show but ran into a small glitch: A the sheet was being pulled off for the big unveil, it got stuck at the end of the truck and left a long white tail. A crewman had to run out and pull it away.
Even legal threats didn't stop the launch of Fisker's new 'super car'
Auto design legend Henrik Fisker showed off his new "super car" Tuesday at the Detroit auto show despite legal threats from his former employer, uber-luxury maker Aston Martin. VLF Automotive — a joint venture of manufacturer Gilbert Villarreal, auto engineering titan Bob Lutz and Fisker — unveiled the $268,500, 10-cylinder, 8.4-liter Force 1. The reveal came after Aston Martin last week sent a letter to Fisker demanding that he withdraw the Force 1 from the auto show or tweak his design to differentiate it from his past designs.
Lincoln showed off it's 2017 Lincoln Continental. Lincoln didn't design the new five-passenger Continental to be an underdog, writes Alisa Priddle. The automaker did not skimp on the production model and stayed fairly true to the concept unveiled last year at the New York auto show. Check it out here:
General Motors' GMC truck brand showed off the revamped Acadia, which becomes smaller and more car-like in its handling than the model it replaces. There are more-efficient powertrains and three rows of seating on most models. The premium Acadia Denali returns, along with a new all-terrain model with enhanced off-road capability.
