Onsite coverage for this article was directed & edited by Eric Woodward, Alex Brar, Ruby Brallier and other local video & photography crew.
Here we will have a few of the auto show highlights with some details about each vehicle:
2019 BMW X2: BMW's X2 model was previewed by a sporty concept, and the production model retains most of the styling elements. Unlike other even-numbered BMW crossovers, the X2 will use a traditional greenhouse silhouette instead of a coupe-like profile. The X2 rides on the same front-drive based platform as the X1 (though the X2 will only be offered with all-wheel drive) and will use similar powertrains.
Redesigns / Refreshes:
2019 Chevrolet Silverado LD Crew Cab: Chevrolet redesigned the Silverado for 2019 and initially showed it off at their centennial event held at the Texas Motor Speedway. The Silverado will retain steel construction as more of it's competitors move to aluminum, but the latest generation will still benefit from weight reduction and increased fuel economy.
INFINITI Q Inspiration Concept: INFINITI is bringing a sleek concept to Detroit that could preview an upcoming flagship sedan with a 'coupe-like' roofline and large proportions.
