For the first time since 2010, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will not unveil a new product at thein Detroit.
In lieu of a Detroit reveal, FCA will reportedly launch something new at The Detroit News reports. Fiat Chrysler did not immediately return a request for comment.in Las Vegas,
CES takes place in early January, the week before Detroit, so when an automaker schedules plans for one, it is unlikely to repeat it the following week. Chevrolet chose to reveal its at CES earlier this year, and it just rolled the thing out in Detroit like it was some incremental Malibu update. It's unclear what Fiat Chrysler has planned for CES, as it could easily reveal something from any one of its many brands, including Jeep, Chrysler and Ram.
Several FCA products are due to appear this year, Automotive News points out, but few jibe with the tech-centric angle at CES. A Hellcat-powered is reportedly set for an unveiling at some point this year, as is the new 2018 . An update to an engine or semi-autonomous technology would be a more likely fit.
This year's CES will feature not one, but two automaker CEOs giving speeches. Ford CEO Mark Fields and Nissan CEO Carlos Ghosn are set to give keynote presentations in Las Vegas this year. Ford's been a part of CES since 2007, while Nissan is a newcomer. It's slowly becoming the Las Vegas Motor Show, but with a whole bunch of electric scooters and computer chips thrown into the mix.
Thankfully, FCA's move to Las Vegas won't affect you, dear reader. Roadshow and CNET have plenty of boots on the ground in both locations, so you won't miss an inch of what's to come.
