International Auto Show in Detroit 2010 News and Interviews

International Auto Show in Detroit 2010 News and Interviews

This is the week Detroit hopes to put its bankruptcies and bailouts in the rearview mirror. The North American International Auto Show is about to get underway and automakers think they may have found the formula for a new start.

The North American International Auto Show in Detroit is being called the greenest ever. Ford took top honors for both car and truck of the year with their hybrids. A new "Electric Avenue" display area will showcase the latest in alternative-power vehicles right alongside the traditional show stands.

So far, the reveals are the 2011 Audi A8, the final production version of the 2011 Chevrolet Volt and the 2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class convertible. We also saw the Honda CRZ and the Toyota FT-CH. Of course they're showing off some bells and whistles along the way.

In recent years General Motors has paired down its portfolio to four key brands. Among them is GMC, an auto maker that until recently was known only for their rugged pickup trucks and SUVs. Fewer brands means fewer toes to step on these days giving GMC the freedom to push the boundaries of their "Professional Grade" image.

Small cars played a big role at this year's 2010 NAIAS in Detroit. In fact, even the finalists for the "Truck of the Year" award were not trucks in the traditional sense. Already doing well in Asia and Europe, the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze has been refined and re-introduced stateside. The next-generation Aveo RS show car, a major player in the global market, was also unveiled. And Ford rolled out a 40 MPG global Focus, which will look the same in the U.S. as it does in Asia and Europe.

The North American International Auto Show saw a host of new Chevy cars being introduced including the Chevy Spark, Cruze, and Aveo RS Turbo concept. Check them and and see what Bob Lutz has to say about the future of General Motors.
