Figure with less than a month to go we might as well start keeping track of the scheduled debuts.

I'll start it off.

<b>Wild Speculation</b>

Chevrolet Bolt 200 mi EV: http://www.wsj.com/articles/gm-readies-electric-rival-to-tesla-1420859986?KEYWORDS=chevrolet

<b>My summary</b>

GM: "We are firing on all cylinders with EVs, performance cars and practical family cars, and we are ready to take on Tesla on their terms."
Ford: "We really don't have any significant new consumer product this year so here's some hi-po eye candy."
Chrysler: 'Like we said last year, the cool stuff is coming next year."
Imports: "Hey, we can make trucks."

IMHO GM Wins. Big time.

Excellent debuts this year, and the big surprise was that Buick Avenir, which I don't know how they kept it under wraps, and I hope that reaches production as a RWD Buick flagship, above the next-generation LaCrosse.

The only vehicles missing, which were speculated by some sites are the next-generation Lexus RX, Honda Pilot, the American Buick Envision crossover, Nissan Maxima (this may debut in New York), and the next-generation Chevrolet Camaro was reported to be at NAIAS, but, that could be at a later venue this year, too. The same thing likely goes for the Ford Focus RS and Fiesta RS performance models. FCA really didn't have any debuts, with the exception of the Alfa-Romeo 4C Spider and the Ram Rebel pickup.
