BMW is splitting the 3 Series Sedan and Coupe variants into separate models, the latter being renamed as the new 4 Series Coupe. We'll get our first look at this new model at the Detroit auto show. Will the 4 Series Convertible and M4 performance model be revealed as well?
The Dodge Dart GT, which will be powered by a 184-horsepower, 2.4-liter turbocharged engine that outputs 174 pound-feet of torque, will make its debut in the Motor City next week. It looks like a tough little compact, but we're still holding our breath for an R/T or SRT model.
Dodge is expanding its Blacktop Series of styling packages with the announcement of Blacktop Editions of the 2013 Dodge Durango, Grand Caravan, and Journey, because gloss-black wheels and trim with special red exterior paint is exactly what a minivan owner needs to complete his vehicle's sinister look.
Mercedes-Benz is refreshing the E-Class sedan and convertible at the Detroit show with a new look that's more rounded. The automaker is also launching the hot-rodded new E63 AMG 4Matic, which will come in sedan and wagon configurations.
Meanwhile, Honda will be giving us a conceptual look at the future of its CR-V when it pulls the wraps off of the Urban SUV concept. Elsewhere at the show, Acura will be giving us a look at the next MDX.
Not much is known about the Furia concept itself, but we do know that its unveiling at the Detroit show will involve 30 of Samsung's new 46-inch transparent LCDs. Hopefully, the car itself will be worth such a hullabaloo.
Finally catching up to the hardtop variant, Bentley Continental GT Speed Convertible gets updated with a twin-turbocharged 6.0-liter W-12 engine that twists its driveshaft to the tune of 616 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. That purple paint color isn't half bad either.
Audi's Q5 sport crossover gets 'roided up for the Detroit auto show with the debut of the SQ5. Power from its supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 is bumped to 354 horsepower and reaches the pavement at all four corners. Yes, please!
VW will be hotting up its Passat sedan's image with a concept that is powered by a 250-hp, turbocharged 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine. Lowering the body over 19-inch wheels with a sport suspension helps complete the package.
