As the North American International Auto Show winds down in the Motor City, it’s time to take a look at the top debuts the show had to offer. While virtually every automaker touted some kind of electric vehicle, none of those made my list. Why? Because they’re not cool enough.
These, however, are:
The U.S. Focus will finally become a car built on a global platform, bringing European underpinnings to the States in a good-looking, efficient package. Bravo, Ford!
Cadillac CTS-V Coupe
If two things in a car will win my praise, they are speed and sexiness. The CTS-V offers both.
Buick Regal GS
A 2.0-liter turbocharged Ecotec four-cylinder with 255 horsepower just sounds like fun. I don’t even care if it’s from GM or looks like a bar of soap, I like it!
Ford Mustang GT 5.0
Do I really need to explain this one? The Mustang is my oldest car obsession, and with her new 5.0, the lust is back, baby!
BMW Z4 sDrive35is
There’s always room in my heart for more than one love. This new Bavarian beauty sped in and captured a good portion of it.
Mercedes-Benz E Class Cabriolet
Mercedes says it’s an all-season convertible. How? An extendable Aircap rises from the windshield header to divert the airflow over the cabin, while neck-level heaters warm you up. Nice.
BMW hasn’t offered an inline six cylinder in a 7 Series since 1992. This version will offer 315 horsepower. Sold, to the man in the front, for $71,025.
Which Detroit debut do you think is the best?
