2013 NAIAS: AUTOBYTEL EDITORS SHARE INSIGHTS FROM PREDOMINANT NORTH AMERICAN AUTO SHOW

Traditionally, the Detroit Auto Show is the most important one in North America in terms of news and product debuts, if not physical size. Each January, auto manufacturers from around the world descend upon Detroit to unveil their latest models, and the Autobytel team was on the ground in the Motor City to gather all the news, filter the noise, and tell consumers what they need to know .

“With so many important introductions and announcements, the Autobytel team made sure to cover everything,” said Autobytel editor-in-chief Michelle Naranjo. “Our editorial team offers a unique perspective from the show that includes articles and photos on our website along with interviews and videos from the show.”

Nearly every manufacturer had something to announce at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) this year. From concept vehicles, to new technologies, to new vehicle announcements, this year’s NAIAS had it all. Following are some highlights from the show:
