Does anybody know where the 2006 Pontiac Torrent, and 2007 Saturn Sky are going to make their debuts? Well the 2005 Chicago Auto Show website is showing that they are going to be there so maybe they are debuting there: <br><A HREF="http://chicagoautoshow.com/neatstuff/whatsnew" TARGET="_blank">http://chicagoautoshow.com/neatstuff/whatsnew</A>/

I dont know if ive seen them because there barely anything to set it aprt from the Corolla S and the other Corolla models, Toyota shouldve did something to make it really stand out from the other Corolla's. Maybe bigger wheels adn diff bumpers?

I'm a native Chicagoan who attended every CAS from 1957-1999. I live in Las Vegas now but I would love to go back for the show this year. In terms of display space, Chicago will be the largest show in North America and possible the world. It also draws more people than Detroit, LA or NY. Does anyone have an idea which new models are making their debuts in Chicago? BTW, the Pontiac Torrent is debuting in LA and the Saturn Sky in Detroit (somebody thought they might be debuting in Chicago).

Coming to Chicago: Toyota FJ Cruiser <p>The smaller, retro-themed Toyota SUV called FJ Cruiser will become a production vehicle-and its debut is set for the Chicago Auto Show in February. Toyota said in a brief release on Tuesday that the FJ is "chiseled from nearly a half-century tradition of tough off-road performance provided by the legendary FJ 40, the original 4Runner, and 4x4 compact pickups." The new vehicle will be pitched as an affordable SUV for the active-lifestyle set. No other technical information or pricing has been released on the FJ Cruiser. The Chicago show opens to the press on February 9. <p>So close and no spy shots. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/1zhelp.gif" BORDER="0">

I kind of agree with you. I think the Dodge "Liberty" should be called Caliber- sounds more like an SUV name to me. So what do we propose the Neon should be called then?<p>(When can we expect the Dodge varient of the Liberty?)<p>And I thought the new Civic was set for a Geneva debut...

Good eye. I loved the front end of the M80 -- I thought that went well with the fender flares. We'll see how the Nitro pulls it off with a more conventional Dodge fascia.<br>

Autoweek.com reported the new expansion will allow DCX to have a lot more floor space allowing them to have a 1/2 mile test track where you can test their cars. Hopefully, I can see whats so great about 300C.

The Milan looks very similar to the Fusion except that headlights seem wider.

The first day of the Media Show starts bright and early today at 8:00am. I will be attending.<p>Check back later tonight, I'll get as many pictures online as I can.<p>Looks to be a good day.. FJ Cruiser, DTS, Milan, Mountaineer, S65, ZO6, silver F430, hopefully Bugatti, and I'm sure I forgot a lot more.
