With 2017 now done and dusted, we turn our eyes to the new year. The first cab off the rank on the global motor show circuit is Detroit, and we’ll be on the ground to bring you the latest news.

Opened in 1899, Detroit’s big show lays claim to being the second oldest event of its kind, with only the one year-older Paris motor show outdoing it. (The New York motor show followed in 1900.)

The 2018 Detroit motor show (officially the North American International Auto Show) will run from January 13-28.

What can you expect to see at the show? Catch our growing list below, and keep returning as we add new details!
