Detroit will be host to the North America International Auto show starting January 20 while the North America’s largest indoor boat show is planned for January 12 in Toronto.
Detroit is about to be invaded by more than 5,000 journalists from 61 countries for a preview of the North American International Auto Show. The press preview takes place Jan. 14-16 and the doors open to the public from Jan. 20-28.
Experience an automotive event unlike any other. At NAIAS you have the opportunity to see up-close the vehicles and technologies that will shape the future automotive landscape. From muscle and electric cars to high-performance supercars and full-size trucks, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
During last year’s show there were 71 vehicle introductions including 46 worldwide debuts. The numbers are expected to increase at this year’s show.
Detroit is where future mobility innovations meet the pavement. With the largest concentration of the world’s top automotive and technology executives, designers and engineers, the auto show serves as a global stage for companies to debut brand-defining vehicles and industry-shaping announcements. A preview of some of the big reveals include: a mid-engine Corvette has been rumoured for a 2018 debut and the Silverado and Sierra full-size pickup twins are set to receive an update at the show.
There’s a good chance a new Ford Ranger will make an appearance in Detroit for the first time and there might be some new Mustangs in the form of a Bullitt Mustang GT500. Honda’s new Insight will be on hand and Hyundai’s Veloster is coming back for a second generation. Infiniti plans to reveal a flagship sedan and Lexus will preview an all-new crossover flagship concept called the LF-I limitless. Also on display will be Volkswagen’s 2019 Jetta.
If you are going to attend the boat show in Toronto, make sure you enter to win a $34,000 Princecraft fishing boat, a Boston Whaler 150 Montauk, a 14-foot Lund fishing Package and even an Antigua sailing dream vacation. The boat show will also offer more than 250 free seminars and workshops, as well as the latest boats, kayaks, canoes and water toys on the market.
The boat show will also feature the world’s largest indoor lake where novice and experienced boaters can experience free boat rides. The lake also features the spectacular Winter Wake Fest, packed with pro wakeboard/wakeskate riders and stand-up paddleboard races.
Another feature is the great Canadian fish tank – a 40-foot-long aquarium filled with 5,000 gallons of water and stocked with native Ontario marine life. The Kids Fishing Zone is always a big hit with the younger crowd.
