Show schedule is out, and there is only one--ONE!--day of OEM press conferences.

http://naias.com/press/press-releases/press-conference-schedule-announced-for-2017-north-american-international-auto-show/

Chevrolet: Traverse
Audi: Q3? RS3?
Lexus: LS
Ford: Mustang MCA?
Mercedes-Benz: E-Class Coupe
VW: LWB Tiguan? Jetta Concept? Golf Refresh?
BMW/MINI: ???
Nissan: ???
Honda: Odyssey? Civic Type-R?
Toyota: Camry
Volvo: XC60?
Kia: GT
Infiniti: QX50 Concept
GAC: ???

GMC will supposedly also have the new Terrain on display, but if they do, it will be without a press conference.

Ford could be the F-150 facelift as well or possibly the Expedition.

BMW: Maybe a Z5 or X5/X7 concept?

Honda: Odyssey would make sense.

I read somewhere we'll see two new / unannounced CUV's from Chevy at NAIAS.

Also - I think Honda is almost ready to show the 2018 Accord.

What would be the second besides the Traverse? The new midsizer? That'd be a nice surprise, but don't think we've seen any spyshots of it even. Are you sure you didn't read two CUVs from GM? That would explain the Terrain as well.

I'd be surprised if the Accord showed up in Detroit, given the Odyssey debut was already pushed back for the CR-V. I'd wager the Accord will show up sometime later this year, perhaps NY.

VW is definitely the Tiguan: http://www.carscoops.com/2016/12/new-2018-volkswagen-tiguan-allspace.html

Relieved we won't be getting the "Allspace" name.

Mis-read it...it's GM is debuting...so likely Terrain as well as Traverse.

I'm hopeful that if it is Terrain - it's styled along the lines of the Acadia...not the previous Terrain / new Equinox.

Honda:

CRV is released and deliveries begin tomorrow.

Ody, yes in Detroit.

Expect Accord in NY.

Now Acura.......Torrance, you have a problem.
What are you going to do to the RDX?
Repeat the ILX and build the old model while Honda gets the new Civic and CRV?

Ford: Mustang MCA?
Mercedes-Benz: E-Class Coupe


I'm hearing that we'll see both the facelifted F-150 and Mustang from Ford, along with the S-Class facelift in addition to the E Coupe from MB.

Acura is a wash. The days of the TL are over and the new NSX just cant stand out.


For me, NAIAS '17 is all about the new Lexus LS and IF it can take the market back from MB.

Well, the CR-V was just released, so I wouldn't expect an RDX yet.

I do wonder what's taking the ILX so long, though. One would think that the improved bones of the new Civic would make the ILX easier to develop....

The problem with Acura is that they just dont seem to care. Its all about the MDX.

Terrain teased...with a DLO basically identical to the Bolt (just bigger)...

Glad I'm not the only who noticed that. It's downright bizarre.

This show is going to be a snooze.

Some company always manages to surprise us - I bet we'll see:
- Something from Caddy showing the new corporate face (new ATS??)
- More continental faces on the MKX / MKC
- **gasp** Jeep Wrangler??

No way on the first two, considering there have been zero spy shots of either.
