The countdown is on! We’re less than three days from the start of the North American International Auto Show. Who’s excited?
The main buzz surrounding last year’s event was the unveiling of the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, a car that went on to become the industry’s most awarded car of the year. This year, Chevrolet hopes to hit another grand slam with the introduction of the 2015 Corvette Z06 and the C7R. It’s all part of the fun at the NAIAS, one of the automotive world’s top international shows.
Also sure to make a splash is Ford, who will show off the 2015 Mustang. In all, more than 50 vehicles are expected to debut at the NAIAS. Other vehicles to check out include the 2015 Ford F-150, 2015 Chrysler 200 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
The show continues to build on momentum it has gained since 2009, when General Motors and Chrysler were on the cusp of bankruptcy. In the 25-year history of the NAIAS, 1,359 vehicles have been introduced. More than 18 million people have attended the show and more than 125 charities have received donations. The total economic impact of the NAIAS on southeastern Michigan is estimated to be near $10 billion.
The show will be open to the public from January 18–26 at Cobo Center. Tickets to the public show are $7 for senior citizens and children between 7–12 years old, $13 for adults, and free for children 6 and under. Hours are 9 a.m. – 10 p.m. (no admittance after 9 p.m.), January 18–25. The show will be open from 9 a.m. – 7 p.m. on January 26.
