Journalists from 60 countries were treated to fantastic vehicle unveilings on an electric show floor that resembled Times Square with LED walls virtually everywhere. Striking images and positive messages about new vehicles, new automotive technology, and the renovated world class Cobo Center were transmitted non-stop by traditional and new media alike.

Shuman pointed out that the vehicles that were introduced in Detroit over two full press days are some of the automakers most commercially successful. From the Ford F150, which introduced the company’s breakthrough aluminum body, to the race-inspired Cadillac ATS Coupe, to the Nissan Autonomous Leaf and Chrysler’s all-new, sleekly styled Chrysler 200 – global automakers chose Detroit’s world stage for their most strategically important vehicle introductions.
