With this crossover pickup truck concept, Toyota is suggesting a solution to the declining small pickup market. It might well be re-energized with a different type of design and a more environmentally-friendly powertrain.
The Renegade is one of those concepts every designer wants to create: a back to basics, futuristic recreational car for young people. And we've seen Jeep concepts before, several times, that tick some of these boxes. But this is not to suggest that this concept should be lightly dismissed.
With the ecoVoyager, a Chrysler concept for 2020, elegance and simplicity were the key words of the design brief.
This is one of the most significant all-new production designs at Detroit. Designed in Toyota's Calty design studio in California, the Venza is an exclusive North American-market vehicle that targets young minded middle-class Americans for whom the Avalon is too staid and a Lexus too expensive.
The Lincoln MKT is the second concept designed by Xitis Mistry (working under exterior design manager Aram Kasparian) in as many years.
Quite a departure from restyling existing models from BMW and Mercedes-Benz, the Karma concept is a hybrid plug-in vehicle designed in-house by Henrik Fisker, CEO of Fisker Automotive.
The GLK concept is a new type of Mercedes-Benz, a small SUV to compete directly with cars such as the BMW X3.
The Provoq concept is based on GM's hydrogen fuel-cell E-flex propulsion system, but judging by its proportions it also looks like a show car preview of a forthcoming compact Cadillac crossover SUV.
The R8 V12 TDI concept is based very closely on the Audi R8 production design. The differences start with larger front side air intakes that run all the way from the base of the headlamps to the prominent splitter, a theme we first saw on the Audi Cross Cabriolet Quattro concept shown a few months ago in LA.
As one of Chrysler Group's alternative-fueled concepts unveiled in Detroit, the Zeo concept is an all-electric enthusiast vehicle for four-passengers.
