North American international auto show (it's the showdown in Detroit) officially passed today, and the always-expected event was not disappointing in terms of disclosing titles. Our journalists Driving.ca were on the ground to take all the unveilings first hand. Below is an overview of all the most sensational impressions from the first day of the great show.
2020 Toyota Supra
After over a decade of waiting, Toyota fans finally get their Supra. Toyota pulled out the wrappers now-BMW-based coupe, 2020 Toyota Supra, revealing some sensational stats, including the 4.1-second sprint from a standstill to 60 mph (96 km / h) and a top speed of 250 km / h, both of which provide a 3.0-liter engine making 335 horsepower and 365 lb. -ft torque.
2020 Cadillac XT6
Caddy gets a new flagship car. This is with the old CT6 sedan and in with the XT6 SUV. The 2020 XT6 comes with AWD as a standard, along with a bunch of luxury features all packed in a car-like experience thanks to the unibody frame (unlike the Escalade's truck-based installation) on which it goes. Climbing against the competitive set of Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia, the XT6 offers more luxury in basically the same sizes. Will it be enough to shake buyers? TBD
2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500
The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 The 5.2-liter inflatable V8 makes "more" 700 hp, lifting it to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds and making it the most powerful Ford ever built. Sounds fun, is not it? I think you could call it an interesting fact. Only, we are not sure that "much more" than 700 hp, it will be just because Ford did not tell us. They showed us that the 2020 Shelby GT500 will borrow from the GT supercar Ford and the Mustang GT4 racing program to offer more corner-capable driving experience. Only one catch. No manual transmission.
2019 Ram HD
Today, and only to this day, we write the torque "R-A-M". Why do we abandon our grammatical recommendations? Because today Dodge opened the 2019 Ram Heavy Duty, which, when fully equipped, produces about 1,000 pounds. of torque, making it capable of towing a whopping 15,000 kg (35,100 pounds). With their 6.7-liter Cummins turbodiesel inline-six (400 hp), the 2019 Ram 2500 and 3500 beat Ford and Chevy rivals to a 1,000-pound-feet milestone. Do not call it a return.

The latest Nissan concept Nissan IMs, looks like the future. Promoted as a "high-performance sports sedan", IM can drive 611 kilometers in one charge of its heavier battery of 115 kWh. The drawing on the batteries is dual electric motors at the front and rear makes up 483 hp, but the real winning car car is its wonderfully amazing interior. With all the drivetrain components stashed under the chassis, IM has a completely flat floor, and two front seats swivel 180 degrees to meet rear seats. Why? Because it is the future and we can.

2020 Kia Telluride

It's spacious, with high-quality materials such as leather and wood, which modifies digital screens, including a rear view monitor and a parking guide. Kia swears it's the SUV, too, going so far to set a small footprint in the grounds of the Auto Show to demonstrate the new "terrain" settings and the Slope Control Control System.
Volkswagen Passat 2020

What does he not offer? AWD, hybrid version or manual transmission.
Everyone wants a piece of the electric car market and concepts at the show this year to prove it.
