The eyes of the automotive world were fixed on the 2013 Detroit Auto Show this January, as carmakers from every corner of the globe unveiled dozens of brand new models set to go on sale later in the year, or sooner.
The two-day series of unveilings started with the naming of the Cadillac ATS and Ram 1500 as North American Car and Truck/Utility of the Year, respectively, followed immediately by the unveiling of a heavily refreshed Jeep Grand Cherokee.
And for horsepower hounds not satisfied by the unveiling of the new Corvette the previous evening, Audi showed the RS 7, BMW unleashed the M6 Gran Coupe and Bentley debuted a 202-mph droptop in the form of the Continental GT Speed Convertible.
That was all before Nissan, Ford, Lexus, Cadillac, Acura and Kia unveiled their newest wares on day two. When all was said and done, the automobile had taken yet another step forward, as it does every January in Detroit.
