The 2015 Detroit Auto Show Model Debuts You Should Know About


John is a full-time automotive blogger who digs cars, but also spends a disturbing amount of time watching and reading about movies. His first car was a maroon 1993 Buick Skylark which, after a solid seven-year run, was laid to rest in August of 2013.

Since its inception in 1907, the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit has become the leading auto show on this side of the pond, and for that reason, the Motor City typically serves as the grounds for many of the most highly anticipated new model debuts of the year.

In 2014, more than 40 new vehicles debuted at the Cobo Center, and although the overall total is slightly lower this year, there has been plenty to see at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show.

Scroll down to see some of the NAIAS highlights thus far. For more extensive coverage and additional photos, be sure to click the photos or links that follow.

2016 nissan titan detroit auto show debut diesel cummins grille wheels f-150

2016 Nissan Titan

The much anticipated 2016 Nissan Titan with the Cummins diesel engine was unveiled. But, Nissan only had the XD present at the show and provided few specs on the new truck.


Chevy Bolt EV

The future direction of electric vehicles was the focus of Chevy’s press conference, and although the proposed 200-mile range of the new Bolt EV Concept would be impressive, the automaker has admitted that it’s just “a vision” at this point.

acura nsx

Acura NSX

It was all about showmanship for Acura as the company brought back the beloved NSX. But aside from the presentation, the car was very impressive as well.


Ford GT

Acura wasn’t the only automaker to exploit their new supercar in the Motor City. Ford debuted their new GT, which up until now, had been on a 10-year hiatus. But even after a decade, the Blue Oval has proved that they are still in prime form.


Ford Raptor

The next-generation Ford Raptor was brought to light. The truck will see a lot of changes when it becomes available next year, including an EcoBoost V-6 engine and aluminum body.

2016 Toyota Tacoma

A redesign was long overdue for the Toyota Tacoma. Pressure from the segment, including the Chevy Colorado, seemed to force Toyota into making an impressive midsize truck.

Hyundai Santa Cruz Concept

Hyundai is hoping the Santa Cruz will fill a gap in the market. But do consumers really want a crossover with a small truck bed in the back?


2016 Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe

Mercedes pulled the sheets off a pair of new AMG GLE Coupes in Detroit, giving us the first look at the renamed model line that will serve as a direct competitor of the similarly-equipped BMW X6.

ram rebel detroit

Ram 1500 Rebel

It has already been said that the off-road ready Ram 1500 Rebel will not compete with the Raptor or Reaper, and a closer look at its stats shows the truth behind that, but the upcoming movie star is undoubtedly going to be compared to the two anyways.


2016 Lexus GS F

We already knew what the GS F would contain before Lexus pulled back the veil on it, and although its produces some undoubtedly impressive numbers, it’s hard to get past the fact that it has the exact same engine as the RC F.

2016 Lincoln MKX

The all-new MKX was the last of the models to get unveiled in Detroit, and not surprisingly, the addition of the new EcoBoost four-cylinder up front was one of the main focuses of the quick and to-the-point press conference.
