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.

Then the luxury automakers joined in, and in back-to-back-to-back press conferences we saw the Lincoln MKC Concept, 2014 Infiniti Q50 and 2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA.

More concept cars followed, including the Volkswagen CrossBlue concept, Honda Urban SUV Concept, Toyota Corolla Furia Concept and Hyundai HCD-14 Genesis concept.

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.

Star of the Show: 2014 Chevrolet Corvette

GM unveiled the seventh-generation Corvette at a special event on the eve of the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. Hints of Ferrari meet shades of Camaro in the latest version of America's sports car, which also features more technology, more power and a much improved interior.

Top New Twist: 2014 Audi SQ5

When it arrives here this fall, the 2014 Audi SQ5 will be the hottest compact crossover SUV on the road. We're fans of the Q5 in all its forms, but this 354-horsepower version is bound to be our favorite. Check out the SQ5, or look below to see other familiar cars with something new to offer.
