  • 4. January 2017 January2017AutoShowReview The End of the Car Show (As We Know It)? Each New Year’s celebration accompanies wide-eyed hope that the coming twelve months will offer something new and promising. In the couple weeks that follow, two industry shows do the same thing for professionals who follow the electronics and automotive markets. CES in Las Vegas and NAIAS in Detroit are those shows where thousands of journalists and hundreds of thousands of consumers visit to see what will be on their wish lists. As has been the pattern for the last few years, CES stole much of NAIAS’ automotive thunder with automakers pandering to the digital crowd where venture capitalists and speculators have boosted the shares of many businesses touting vaporware to near blue chip levels. If only the Fiat Chrysler’s and Volkswagen’s of the world could get some of that unbridled optimism behind their stock prices. With their focus directed toward Las Vegas, the automotive industry seems to have taken its eye off the “hometown” ball. NAIAS, more than a quarter century after becoming an “international” auto show, is sadly lacking for new products. Major brands such as Jaguar Land Rover decided to not show any product at NAIAS while Fiat Chrysler’s introduction was held a week earlier at CES with no press introduction at all during NAIAS’ media launch, this was especially depressing since, for years, Chrysler was known for their spectacular NAIAS launches (which included literally smashing through the glass at Cobo Hall with a new Grand Cherokee and leading an actual cattle drive through Detroit). The overwhelming theme at this year’s show was “ho-hum.” Volkswagen took the deafening silence as invite to step up is mea culpa world tour and introduce the ID Buzz concept, which is expected to lead to a production electric vehicle. Nissan brought out a true concept (Nissan Vmotion 2.0) as a hint toward its future styling direction for the whole brand. And Kia, of all brands, made the most noise with its near- luxury, rear-drive Stinger performance hatch on its march upscale. For an industry celebrating another record sales year, you couldn’t tell from NAIAS displays. Special Report: Auto Shows
  • 5. January 2017 NorthAmerican Car of theYear 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV Hyundai and Volvo offered legitimate luxury cars, but it was the affordable electric from General Motors that couldn’t be beat. With its 200+ mile range, the Bolt EV gives the public the promise of next year’s Tesla Model 3 but makes it available this year. Priced, after incentives, below $30,000, the Bolt EV has very few competitors and it will make other automakers step up their game. 2017 Genesis G90 2017 Volvo S90 Special Report: Auto Shows
  • 6. January 2017 NorthAmerican Utility of theYear 2017 Chrysler Pacifica A new category this year, “utility” of the year removes crossovers and minivans from the car and truck groups as they have become their own subgroups. The fourth generation of minivans from the creator of the genre brings together over 30 years of experience, adding an 84 mpge hybrid version as well as upping the quality of the people carrier. 2017 Mazda CX-9 2017 Jaguar F-Pace Special Report: Auto Shows
  • 7. January 2017 NorthAmerican Truck of theYear 2017 Honda Ridgeline Repeating its award from its introduction 11 years ago, the new Ridgeline has two more NATOTY trophies than either the Titan or SuperDuty.
