Getting ready for Detroit auto show

BMW enters sub-compact SUV race with all-new X2

Pickups and SUVs will be the headliners at this year's Detroit Auto Show. And it was one of the smallest cars to get an update for the auto show this year.

As for safety features, the company plans to make new announcements later on in the year.

"I think the only way to figure out how to get the system to work is to work the system", says Hoff.

The new hybrid range comes as part of Ford's global electrification strategy, which will see "13 new global electrified vehicles" introduced within the next five years.

Analysts say these vehicles are not that far from the mainstream.

Spending $11 billion might sound like a lot.

As for the question of when Ford will make money on self-driving cars or mobility services, Hackett said investors need to be patient.

Auto shows often spotlight the fanciful - the dream cars that represent a designer's flight of fancy. Not only that, but it will sport the iconic Mach 1 nameplate.

Ford 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel engine. These are the CLS53, E53 Coupe and E53 Cabriolet.

"We believe the markets for autonomous in the future is for both moving people and moving goods", Hackett said. That extra component delivers an additional 21bhp and 184 lb-ft of torque when accelerating from standstill.

Besides providing extra power, the mild hybrid system lets the vehicle coast with the engine off for short periods of gentle cruising.

With country music and nostalgic videos on loop, GM reminded us that it's been doing trucks for 100 years. Mercedes says the engine's restarting when you press the accelerator is "virtually imperceptible". The Silverado has a power tailgate, a new manufacturing technique that created greater volume in the bed and Dynamic Fuel Management that can shut down as many as seven cylinders in its V8 engines.

And, as with the Mercedes above, this is a kind of hybrid vehicle which can not be plugged in - instead, power is restored to the battery during regenerative braking. There's also a touchpad to control infotainment functions on the 10.2-inch dashboard screen.

Other production auto debuts are anticipated from the Audi A7, BMW i8 Coupe and BMW X2, Honda Insight, Hyundai Veloster, Jeep Cherokee, Lamborghini Urus, Mercedes-AMG CLS53 and Mercedes-Benz G-Class, Rolls Royce Phantom, Toyota Avalon and Volkswagen Jetta. But poor sales left it floundering behind the Prius and the auto was taken out of production.

"We've sold more trucks than anyone in the U.S for three consecutive years", said Batey.

Lexus unveiled the LF-1 "Limitless" concept vehicle in Detroit, which gives us a glimpse into the luxury auto manufacturer's future. It has been created to work with various drivetrains, including fuel cell electric, hybrid electric, plug-in hybrid electric or battery electric.

"Silicon Valley needs Detroit", he said.
