Other than Shelby Mustang, Aviator and Edge, what else can we expect from Ford at Detroit Auto Show in January.

the new production version of the explorer sport trac is supposed to be coming out. I don't know if they're redoing the ranger also, but that could be out then. Not sure what else though.

definitely not the ranger, they've postponed that for a couple years, pretty lame...

Literally like 3 minutes ago, I put up the first poster at my school for our trip to Detroit including the auto show.

I'm also curious to know what else we're gonna see from ford. I dunno man... they've gotta have something up their sleeves right? I mean, they unveil a couple concept cars every year right? I'd love to see a new focus concept.

Anybody familiar with the show know if tickets sell out quick? We've put off buying the tickets for our trip until we knew for sure when we'd be going and how many we'd need. I feel like we should probably get on that quick.

Also, is anybody else gonna be there?? If you are look for a group of mcgill students on either the first saturday or sunday, ask for Jeff!

Would they do that when they have the new focus already released in Europe, but not the US?

I am just thinking of R&D expenditure and how a car company has to release a different segment car each year (or every couple of years), so that they always have one car at the peak of it's sales so that it funds thr R&D on other models....

I've read there may be a Lincoln car concept/production model at the show. It may be the version that will replace the Town Car (AWD, 4.4 V8, etc.)

What updates are they doing on F-150? Isn't it little too soon, I mean, current generation of F-150 went on sale last year.

sweet, new super duties, didn't think that would be so soon after they just refreshed them, but it was a pretty mild refresh i guess... and the new big lincoln... Sounds like its the D2C, or whatever they call the 500 platform, with the yamaha V8 from the XC90. Sounds great to me, but i hope its more than just a rebadging, in terms of styling.

The 6.2 is out last I heard but the power should be bumped in the 5.4 V8. We'll just have to wait and see until it gets closer to the show.
