Re: Anybody going to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit?

I believe I'm going this weekend. I don't have a camera, and I don't draw very well either.

Re: Anybody going to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit?

They didn't bring the new Grand Cherokee to Detroit? That's one reason I wanted to go.

Re: Anybody going to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit?

I just got the word from Dave over at Allpar...

"It is NOT being shown - though it was in the WPC Museum parking lot! (Not
as a display)"

Can anybody explain to me the rationale of that?? Doesn't sound like a very good Marketing strategy to me.....a little bizarre to say the least....

I realize that it has been shown already at a previous show....but then why bring the 2010 model whose production is being shut down in a couple of months?

Here is what the Detroit News had to say about it...

Conspicuous by their absence: Cars you won't see at the auto show

The redesigned 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUV is the most notable no-show.

Chrysler LLC actually unveiled it last year at the New York Auto Show, but has pulled it from subsequent auto shows. Chrysler's sales are in a slump, and the company's new management doesn't want any more reasons for consumers to postpone a purchase of the current Grand Cherokee. So look for the new Grand Cherokee to resurface just before it goes on sale this fall.

The 2011 Grand Cherokee will be more crossover-like and feature Chrysler's new flex-fuel Phoenix V-6 engine. The 3.6-liter engine puts out 280 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque at 4,800 rpm. That's a 33 percent bump in horsepower and an 11 percent boost in torque over the departing V-6. When paired with a five-speed automatic, it is also more efficient with an 11 percent increase in fuel economy.

Okay, but isn't the cat already out of the bag...so to speak.....most already know about the upcoming 2011 GC....don't they?

Re: Anybody going to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit?

That seems pretty stupid. Maybe the new Grand just isn't up to the long drive into downtown Detroit. It doesn't have limited slip in the front, and it has been snowing.

That's very disappointing. Now I'm not nearly as interested in attending the show.

Re: Anybody going to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit?

If they want to increase sales of the 2010 model, they should have just rolled something butt ugly up in there and said this is the 2011 Grand Cherokee. They could have kept the real deal hidden behind a curtain for the hardcore fans. I'm hugely bummed.

Re: Anybody going to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit?

I wonder if it'll be shown at the NY international auto show?

Re: Anybody going to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit?

I would guess yes....it will be shown at the NY show.....since this will be April 2010.....supposedly..the 2010 will no longer be in production and the 2011 will be starting production the next month....

The GC has always had a strong showing at the NY show...

Re: Anybody going to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit?

For some inexplicable reason, they pulled it from Detroit... but look for it to be in Chicago next month and NY in April...
