This year’s Detroit Auto Show is shaping up to be one of the largest in recent memory in terms of product reveals.

Major debuts include the new Chevy Volt, Nissan Titan, Toyota Tacoma, Cadillac CTS-V, Acura NSX, Honda FCV Concept, Hyundai Sonata Hybrid, Infiniti Q60 concept, Lexus GS-F, Audi Q7, Mercedes GLE and two new products from Buick including a crossover and a convertible. Some other reveals are still a mystery, but we expect to see a huge performance announcement from Ford, including the introduction of the Focus RS to North America, as well as a possible Raptor successor and even a new flagship sports car!

Mopar to Showcase Trio of Customized Vehicles at NAIAS 2015

Mopar to Showcase Trio of Customized Vehicles at NAIAS 2015

Mopar display at 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit to spotlight how Mopar parts help customers personalize their rides

Off-road Mopar-equipped Jeep® Renegade makes Trailhawk model of Jeep brand’s all-new small SUV even more trail tough using Jeep Performance Parts

Urban Mopar-equipped Jeep Renegade enhances city-sized proportions and versatility of the all-new 2015 Renegade with selections from Jeep Authentic Accessories catalog

Dodge Challenger T/A Concept blends vintage design cues with cutting-edge Mopar performance mods


January 9, 2015 , Auburn Hills, Mich. -

When doors open at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) 2015 in Detroit, a trio of customized vehicles will showcase how Mopar is ready to help owners personalize their rides. The service, parts and customer-care brand will display a pair of Mopar-equipped Jeep® Renegade vehicles and a Dodge Challenger T/A Concept vehicle at the event, scheduled for January 12–25 at the Cobo Center in Detroit.

“The company exhibit at the North American International Auto Show will highlight vehicles from all FCA brands, including three modified rides that illustrate how Mopar can assist customers in bringing to life their own personal vision of an FCA vehicle,” said Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar. “Customers can pull from our portfolio of Mopar products to augment the versatility and capability of the all-new Jeep Renegade, as shown with two Mopar-equipped Renegade vehicles, or to beef up the muscle of the Dodge Challenger while adding a vintage feel, as demonstrated by the Dodge Challenge T/A Concept.”





Off-road Mopar-equipped Jeep Renegade
The off-road Mopar-equipped Jeep Renegade is a triple threat — the small SUV arrives already fortified to stay true to the adventurous lifestyle and 4 x 4 capability for which the Jeep brand is known, is further geared to meet the demands of off-roading as a Trailhawk model and gets even more distinctive personality thanks to Jeep Performance Parts and prototype parts.

The unique Commando Green skin of the Renegade is highlighted on both sides by large, bold body-side graphics that pick up on the “X”-shape styling of the taillamps, which come standard on the 2015 Renegade. The graphics also play off the Jerry can “X” design associated with first-generation military Jeep vehicles.

In a nod to the Motor City roots of the NAIAS, a map of Detroit decorates the Mopar Topographical Hood decal, a popular new customizable Mopar accessory introduced last year.

The satin black wheels feature a single spoke trimmed in Colorado red, while tow hooks that come standard at the front and rear of the Trailhawk model also receive the same treatment. Cross rails and a Mopar roof basket — perfect for carrying gear to the trail or sport equipment back home — are satin black, with a gloss black body side rail.

A concept skid plate, prototype rock rails, rear valance and production roof rails equip the Jeep brand’s new small SUV to handle off-road obstacles, and are neatly tied together by a matching neutral grey satin color. Additional protection underneath is provided by a production Mopar skid plate kit. Jeep badging at the front and rear also is trimmed in neutral grey. The Jeep name is laser cut on the prototype rock rails, which are made to “pop” further with painted red edges.

Heading inside, the trail-ready capabilities of the Renegade are balanced with premium interior appointments, including Katzkin leather seat covers. HVAC bezels, speaker grilles and the center console are highlighted in Commando Green, matching the exterior. The wheel, shifter and door lever receive satin black trim, with all bright interior badging finished in neutral grey.

Jeep Authentic Accessories round out the modifications, including Mopar slush mats in the front and rear to protect the interior. A Mopar cargo tray provides additional storage space, and Mopar doorsills are emblazoned with the Jeep logo.





Urban Mopar-equipped Jeep Renegade
The urban Mopar-equipped Jeep Renegade uses a selection of Jeep Authentic Accessories to elevate the fresh styling and energetic appearance of the newest entry to the Jeep brand lineup, creating the perfect street vehicle for youthful city and suburban dwellers who also desire 4 x 4 capability for when maps end but the trails continue.

Built from the Renegade Limited model, the inspired, stylish Anvil paint of the Renegade is set off dramatically with distinct Omaha orange touches, including attention-grabbing orange pockets featured on the satin black wheels. Mirror caps, grille rings, taillamp surrounds and roof rails also are accented Omaha orange. At the rear, a Mopar hitch bike carrier pulls two-wheeled forms of transportation to the park or mountain trail.

Behind the wheel, Katzkin leather seats upgrade the driving experience. As with the off-road Renegade, modifications to the exterior influence the interior of the urban Renegade. Omaha orange highlights the HVAC bezels, speaker grilles and the center console.

Personalization inside is completed with Jeep Authentic Accessories — a premium carpet mat, carpet cargo mat and Jeep logo-decorated door sills.

Dodge Challenger T/A Concept
The Dodge Challenger T/A Concept, which debuted at the 2014 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas last November, is a Sublime Green example that the big gun in the Dodge brand’s muscle-car arsenal hasn’t forgotten its roots.

A modern interpretation of the legendary T/A package available in the 1970s for the Challenger, the Dodge Challenger T/A Concept draws on heritage-inspired cues, but also calls on present-day performance modifications and new prototype products designed with an eye toward the future.

The Sublime Green paint is underscored by full-length matte black T/A graphics, flanking each side of the body, in keeping with the spirit of the original T/A. The matte black look carries over from the aggressive front fascia all the way to the rear deck-lid spoiler to provide an iconic, sinister appearance. The functional “Viper”-inspired center scoop hood with Mopar gloss black hood pins has been adapted to accommodate a Mopar induction system. Cool outside air streams into the air box of the 6.4-liter legendary 392 HEMI® engine via the functional hood scoop.

At the front of the Dodge Challenger T/A Concept, a Mopar matte black front splitter works in unison with the Mopar matte black gurney-lip deck-lid spoiler to provide additional downforce assist. Air Catcher headlamps on both the driver and passenger sides add a distinctive appearance with hidden LED lights creating a menacing glow, as well as working to provide a steady stream of cool air to the engine. Iconic heritage Challenger script T/A badges complement the front gloss black grille and rear deck-lid spoiler.

Underneath the extra-wide 20-by-9.5-inch matte black lightweight forged aluminum wheels are Brembo six-piston calipers with two-piece slotted and vented rotors for ultimate stopping performance. Rear and side exhaust tips feature a black ceramic-coated finish, and electronic cutouts offer the choice of a healthy stock rear exhaust sound or a louder, more-robust side exhaust note.

The celebrated road-course racing reputation of the Challenger T/A package, best embodied by the legendary Sam Posey’s success in his No. 77 Dodge Challenger T/A, distinctly influences the interior feel of the Dodge Challenger T/A Concept.

The race-inspired design elements offer weight reductions paired with increased chassis rigidity enhancements. The high-performance flat bottom steering wheel boasts perforated leather and gloss black bezels. Race-inspired carbon fiber seats with safety harness pass-through and T/A embroidered logos are enhanced with bolsters and high grip cloth design for improved lateral support.

Rear seat delete with brushed aluminum closeout panels achieve additional weight reduction. A pistol grip shifter is another heritage-influenced touch, and the 180 mile per hour (mph) speedometer stands out with white face gauges and platinum metallic trim ring. Accents include gloss black trim ring bezels and door release handles. The rear roll-bar is designed for enhanced chassis rigidity.

Fiat Chrysler unveils all-new Alfa Romeo Spider for North America



Fiat Chrysler unveils all-new Alfa Romeo Spider for North America

01/12/2015

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles splashed the spotlight on its iconic Alfa Romeo brand Monday, unveiling an all-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4c Spider at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles splashed the spotlight on its iconic Alfa Romeo brand Monday, unveiling an all-new 2015 Alfa Romeo 4c Spider at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

The Spider and the 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C coupe, launched last year, are at the forefront of FCA’s strategy to reintroduce the Italian luxury nameplate to North America after a 20-year absence.

“Adding to the excitement of the 4C coupe, our all new 2015 4C Spider expands the brand’s product offering and continues our mission of building great Alfa Romeos,” said Reid Bigland, head of Alfa Romeo North America. “With a removable carbon fibre hard top the 4C Spider takes the coupe’s supercar level of performance and technology and ‘opens it up’ allowing the driver to experience the incredible 4C from an entirely different perspective.”

Handcrafted in Modena, Italy, the 4C Spider combines the performance engineering of Alfa Romeo and craftsmanship of Maserati manufacturing, Bigland said.

The two-seater comes with a Formula 1-inspired carbon fibre monocoque chassis and technologies, including the all-aluminum 1750 cc turbocharged engine with direct-injection, dual intercoolers, and variable-valve timing that enable supercar-level performance, Bigland said. The four-cylinder engine will deliver 136 horsepower per litre.

The 4C models are expected to generate about 3,000 sales globally this year, Bigland said. “A lot of collectors are buying those cars, those who appreciate the technology.”

And those willing to wait an unspecified period before receiving the vehicle. “It’s not a mass-market car,” said Bigland, adding that each vehicle takes about six weeks to build.

All Alfas arrive from Italy to the U.S. through the Port of Baltimore where they undergo a secondary inspection, he added.

“We’re certainly not sending Alfas out that aren’t 100 .........

Alfa Romeo unveils 4C Spider at Detroit auto show

The engine is the "beating heart" of any Alfa Romeo, and for the all-new 2015 4C Spider, it beats to an innovative, all-aluminum 1750 cc turbocharged and intercooled engine with dual (intake and exhaust) continuous variable-valve timing (VVT) that delivers 237 horsepower – or an impressive 136 horsepower-per-liter.

Chrysler to reveal next minivan at 2016 Detroit Auto Show

Chrysler to reveal next minivan at 2016 Detroit Auto Show

All eyes in the industry are presently fixed on this year's Detroit Auto Show, but over at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, they're already looking towards next year's show. That's when the Italian-American automaker says it'll unveil the next Chrysler minivan.

The announcement, made on the FCA Corporate Twitter feed, promises that the next Pentastar minivan will debut in January 2016, which (along with the hashtag NAIAS) suggests the next-generation family hauler will debut at the Detroit show next year.

Auburn Hills is expected to replace the current Chrysler Town & Country and Dodge Grand Caravan with two all-new models: one keeping the minivan form, and the other shifting into more of a crossover. Just which nameplate gets the new form factor, and which will debut at Cobo next year, we don't know. Odds are good that it'll be the minivan not the CUV, though.

Chrysler's minivan has been a winning business for the Detroit automaker, pioneering the segment, outselling the competition and marketing around the world under more brands and nameplates than just about anything else in the industry. The vehicle has been sold as the Dodge Caravan, Chrysler Town & Country, Chrysler Voyager, Plymouth Voyager, Lancia Voyager, Ram Cargo Van and Volkswagen Routan, to say nothing of long-wheelbase Grand versions of many of the aforementioned nameplates.

11 reasons to experience the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles display

11 reasons to experience the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles display



2015 Dodge Challenger SRT 392

If you’re attending the 2015 North American International Auto Show, the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles stand is smack in the middle of the floor in the heart of all the action. Here’s our list of must-see vehicles and technology in the FCA display:

Go ‘beneath the surface’ to see the making of the 2015 Chrysler 200. It’s a one-of-a kind interactive experience that pushes the boundaries of virtual reality. Hop in the driver’s seat, put on the Oculus Rift headset and immerse yourself in a four-minute 4D experience that comes to life with the help of a seat rumble pack and sound system that combines music, voiceover instructions and sound effects that’ll have you thinking you are in the belly of an assembly plant.

Create your own combination. Dodge is giving Viper customers the opportunity to create their very own one-of-one American hand-built exotic performance car. Stop by the Viper turntable and check out the different color forms. How many combinations can you create?

Look up! You just might see a Jeep Wrangler defying gravity from its perch on the wall. We know Jeeps can climb, but this display is an engineering feat!

Take a ride on the ‘Wild Side.’ Experience the ‘Dodge Charger Challenge’ behind the wheel of the 2015 Dodge Charger as it simulates racing at a high rate of speed. It’ll take you up and down and side to side while you try navigate your way through the life size arcade game.

Get connected with Uconnect. Check out the user-friendly features in our vehicles that allow customers to stay connected to the information they want and need while remaining focused on the road.

See the latest reincarnation of the iconic Chrysler 300. Check out its even bolder front grille, LED taillights and its luxurious interior.

Looking for something smaller? The all-new 2015 Jeep Renegade is here! It’s the Jeep brand’s smallest SUV but don’t let size fool you. It’s big on safety and security features along with on-and-off road capability. Check out the two Jeep Renegades sporting the Mopar treatment.

Hellcat? Hell Yeah! If you’ve never seen 707 HP under the hood, now is your chance. The 2015 Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat and 2015 Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat are calling your name.

The 2015 Chrysler 200 is showing off two new interior colors: Mocha leather and Ambassador Blue. Just look out the window of Cobo Hall to see where the inspiration for Ambassador Blue comes from.

Feeling rebellious? Check out the 2015 Ram 1500 Rebel. It features an all-new grille and rear and it’s packed with style and attitude. Make sure you look inside because its most rebellious feature lies in the seats.


If those aren’t enough reasons to attend the 2015 North American International Auto Show, we have 10 million more. The 1967 Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale is a must-see. It’s worth a cool $10 million and if you spot it inside our stand, you’ll see why. See if you can identify the design cues used in the 2015 Alfa Romeo 4C Spider.
