The 2018 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), better known as the Detroit Auto Show, will run through Jan. 28 at the Cobo Center in downtown Motown.
Detroit comes hot on the heels of CES this year and kicks off a 2018 that’s expected to see lower new-vehicle sales in the US than in the previous three booming years. But that hasn’t stopped automakers from showcasing their newest machines, especially pickups.
Here’s all the cool shiny sheet metal on the show floor:
Chevy debuted its all-new Silverado full-size pickup truck.
Ford showcased its much-anticipated Ranger — a throwback nameplate and Ford’s entry into the revived company pickup segment.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles unveiled its new Ram 1500s, setting the stage for a Ford-Chevy-Ram pickup battle.

A refreshed Ford Edge is also on display. The Edge is one of Ford’s bestselling crossovers.
Speaking of crossovers, Acura brought a new RDX to the show floor.
South Korea’s Kia has a new Forte four-door en route to Motown.
