Top Five Detroit Auto Show Production Cars

The North American International Auto Show is the stage used by automakers to reveal their new & upcoming models and redesigns—but they don’t bring every vehicle in their lineup out to play, only the important ones make to the Motor City event. Some of the most important models are debuted during this week of auto madness, and the 2014 show didn’t disappoint! Not every car makes it to an assembly line afterwards either—not every car is even meant to. Take the FT-1 by Toyota, for example; while many people think it’s the next Supra, the concept in its current form isn’t intended for production and consumer purchase. Here are the coolest cars that you'll actually have a chance to own one day.

2015 Corvette Stingray Z06
Let’s go ahead and get this one out of the way, because anyone who tries to pretend that the new Z06 didn’t steal the whole show is going to have a hard time keeping a straight face. Everything about the new Z06 is right and it just might be the best GM on the market (okay, it is) or may even be the best American made sports car now.

The all-new Z06 has been redesigned to compliment the Stingray body style, but with an edge, and sports a removable top for the first time in Z06 history. Under the hood is a supercharged, 625 horsepower LT1 V8 engine. GM is offering a 7-speed manual or 8-speed automatic for the first time in this model.

Ford F-150
It’s no sports car, but the new F-150 is an impressive piece of machinery. This truck represents innovation and the possible future of automobile construction. The truck is built for a 700-pound weight saving through a mostly aluminum body— the intent is to improve fuel economy while making a stronger truck.

Lexus RC F
The RC F is definitely a luxury car to get excited about. This high-performance coupe is jumping into the sports luxury niche head first—it’s powered by a 5.0L V8 with 450 horsepower, an outrageous setup for a luxury vehicle. The styling of the RC F matches the wild powertrain, so this could be the coolest luxury car ever made.

Subaru WRX STI
The WRX STI is a simple compact sedan that offers extreme performance—which is pretty typical of Subaru. This model is powered by a turbocharged 2.5L 4-cylinder that makes 305 horsepower and 290 lbs-ft of torque. The engine is backed by a 6-speed manual.

Ford Mustang
Yes, yes, yes, we’ve all already seen the new generation Ford Mustang all over the internet, but this show marks its first major auto industry show appearance. This redesign is already a huge hit, but people still have more questions about the new Mustang than were answered at the official unveiling—and none of them were really answered at Detroit last week either, but, like I said, it was the first show for the model, so it has to make this list!
