Well this is it, folks. It's a new year, and now it's almost time for the most important trade event in the auto industry: the 2012 Detroit auto show. Now that we're so close to the show, we have a good understanding about what to expect.
As we send off our team to the event to deliver to you the most comprehensive coverage we know how, we thought we'd recap the vehicles that will be unveiled in Detroit one last time. Included in the list below are the dates and times of the press conferences in chronological order, just in case you want to be ready and alert for a specific model.
We've already covered some of the models below, including the 2013 BMW 3 Series and 2013 Chevrolet Sonic RS. To learn more about those, check out our 2012 Detroit Auto Show page, and make sure to check back periodically next week for the latest coverage. Heck, just bookmark the page!
