The RDX arrived in Detroit with a new look and loads of tech.

Caption by / Photo by Nick Miotke and Nate Reed/Roadshow

Under the hood is the same 2.0-liter turbo I4 found in the Accord.

Caption by / Photo by Nick Miotke and Nate Reed/Roadshow

The interior sports a NSX-like dashboard with a unique touchpad controller.

This was truly the year of the truck in Detroit.

The new Silverado debuted on a diet, weighing some 450 pounds less than it did the year before.

Caption by / Photo by Emme Hall/Roadshow

You can also get it with an inline-6 diesel engine, which will pit it squarely against the new F-150 diesel.

Ford revised its entire Edge lineup for the 2019 model year.

Caption by / Photo by Jon Wong/Roadshow

The outside sports a new look that's not too different than the old one.

Caption by / Photo by Jon Wong/Roadshow

This is only a mid-cycle refresh -- a new generation won't come along for a few more years, still.

Caption by / Photo by Jon Wong/Roadshow

The biggest Edge-related news was the introduction of the Edge ST.

Caption by / Photo by Josh Krzywonos and Nate Reed/Roadshow

This enthusiast-friendly crossover uses a 2.7-liter, twin-turbo V6 engine.

Caption by / Photo by Josh Krzywonos and Nate Reed/Roadshow

It puts out a whopping 335 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque.

Caption by / Photo by Ford

Ford debuted a new 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel V6 for its F-150.

Caption by / Photo by Ford

It puts out 440 pound-feet of torque, which you could totally call ample.

Caption by / Photo by Ford

Ford surprised the crowd in Detroit by introducing the new Mustang Bullitt.

Caption by / Photo by Chris Paukert/Roadshow

It relies on the same underpinnings as the new GT Performance Pack, but it bumps up the power and adds some unique aesthetic bits.

Caption by / Photo by Chris Paukert/Roadshow

Yep, there's a Bullitt badge on the steering wheel and a proper cue-ball shifter.

Caption by / Photo by Chris Paukert/Roadshow

Last year, Ford announced that it would bring a new Ranger to the US. This year, it arrived.

Caption by / Photo by Jon Wong/Roadshow

Sporting just a single engine for now -- a 2.3-liter turbo I4 -- the Ranger is set to compete with the Chevrolet Colorado and Toyota Tacoma.

Caption by / Photo by Jon Wong/Roadshow

There's a Raptor variant available elsewhere in the world, so let's hope that it comes here, too.

Caption by / Photo by Josh Krzywonos and Nate Reed/Roadshow

Honda's Insight Prototype is a very thinly veiled preview of the new Civic Hybrid replacement.

Caption by / Photo by Chris Paukert/Roadshow

It relies on a 1.5-liter gas I4 mated to Honda's two-motor hybrid system.

Caption by / Photo by Chris Paukert/Roadshow

The automaker is hoping for 50 mpg when the Insight goes on sale later this year.

Caption by / Photo by Honda

Hyundai's Veloster grew up for 2019 with a slightly less quirky face.

Caption by / Photo by Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow

Thankfully, the Veloster retained its odd third door.

Caption by / Photo by Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow

The interior is like every other Hyundai, in that you get actual physical switchgear and a pretty large standard screen.

Caption by / Photo by Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow

If the regular Veloster isn't doing it for you, say hello to the Veloster N.

Caption by / Photo by Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow

This will be the first car that brings Hyundai's new N performance brand to the US.

Caption by / Photo by Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow

Under the hood is a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 putting out 275 horsepower.

Caption by / Photo by Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow

Infiniti knocked Detroit on its tuchus when it debuted the drop-dead gorgeous Q Inspiration concept.

Caption by / Photo by Jon Wong/Roadshow

A preview of things to come from Infiniti's design language, the car sports handsome curves inside and out.

Caption by / Photo by Jon Wong/Roadshow

You're probably not going to see an interior this wild on future Infiniti models, but expect at least some inspiration to be drawn from this.

Caption by / Photo by Infiniti

The 2019 Jeep Cherokee received a mid-cycle refresh that took away its quirky good looks.

Caption by / Photo by FCA US LLC

It's now a lot closer to the Compass and the Grand Cherokee than before. I guess nobody liked the dual-layer headlight setup.

Caption by / Photo by FCA US LLC

Inside, it's just about the same as it was before, which is fine, because it's plenty nice as-is.

Caption by / Photo by FCA US LLC

The 2019 Kia Forte -- well, the front end, at least -- draws a lot of inspiration from the new Stinger sport sedan.

Caption by / Photo by Jon Wong/Roadshow

Under the hood is a four-cylinder gas engine putting out 147 horsepower and 132 pound-feet of torque, mated to a CVT.

Caption by / Photo by Jon Wong/Roadshow

An 8-inch display is standard, as is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Caption by / Photo by Jon Wong/Roadshow

The Lexus LF-1 Limitless concept is a wild preview of a future Lexus flagship SUV.

Caption by / Photo by Lexus

There are ridiculous angles just about everywhere your eye can land.

Caption by / Photo by Lexus

The interior is even wilder, with screens and curves galore. That dashboard angle is brilliant.

Caption by / Photo by Lexus

One of the least-hyped debuts, but still a very important one nevertheless, was the introduction of a new AMG -53 lineup with a new straight-six engine.

Caption by / Photo by Mercedes-Benz

With 429 horsepower on tap, the new I6 will enter the market with the CLS53 and E53... for now.

Caption by / Photo by Mercedes-Benz

The G-Class was one of the biggest debuts at the show -- both literally and figuratively.

Caption by / Photo by Mercedes-Benz

Sporting a new independent front suspension and improved capability, there's no doubt the G-Class remains the king of off-road SUVs.

Caption by / Photo by Mercedes-Benz

The interior is way better than before, too, with an increased focus on legroom and other creature comforts that weren't present before.

Caption by / Photo by Mercedes-Benz

Mini also quietly debuted a mid-cycle refresh for the 2019 Cooper Hardtop and Convertible.

Caption by / Photo by Mini

Perhaps the best part of the whole refresh is the addition of Union Jack elements in the taillights.

Caption by / Photo by Mini

The fuel gauge looks pretty neat, too.

Caption by / Photo by Mini

The Cooper Hardtop retains its cartoonish good looks with its refresh.

Caption by / Photo by Mini

Sometimes, it's wise not to mess with success.

Caption by / Photo by Mini

Sure, the speedometer might not be in the middle anymore (it hasn't been for a while), but making room for a real infotainment system was sort of necessary.

Caption by / Photo by Mini

Nissan's Xmotion concept is meant to preview a new generation of small Nissan crossovers.

Caption by / Photo by Nissan

Measuring some 4 inches shorter than the Rogue, it definitely is tiny, but its sharp angles and blocky good looks make up for its diminutive footprint.

Caption by / Photo by Nissan

The interior is a freakin' work of art, with a wooden center console connected using Japanese wood joinery techniques.

Caption by / Photo by Nissan

Rounding out the trucks of Detroit, we have the 2019 Ram 1500.

Caption by / Photo by FCA

The Ram 1500 has an available 48-volt mild hybrid system for both its V6 and V8 engine options.

Caption by / Photo by FCA

You can also option a massive 12-inch, portrait-oriented touchscreen infotainment system. Finally, a good use for that massive truck dashboard!

Caption by / Photo by FCA

Toyota's taking some daring moves with its new sedans, the latest of which is the 2019 Avalon.

Caption by / Photo by Toyota

Sporting some much more aggressive looks, the new Avalon seeks to dump its car-for-old-people stereotype.

Caption by / Photo by Toyota

The interior is a bit busy in the center stack area, but on the whole, it's pretty straightforward and handsome.

Caption by / Photo by Toyota

If you love affordable, sensible transportation, you'll dig the 2019 Jetta.

Caption by / Photo by Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow

It's got a handsome new exterior and it finally rides on the MQB platform that underpins the Audi A3, Audi TT and Volkswagen Golf.

Caption by / Photo by Antuan Goodwin/Roadshow

Its 1.4-liter turbo I4 engine is a carryover from the previous generation.
