Hot cars at the Detroit auto show

Source: AP-Excite

The North American International Auto Show begins this week in Detroit with media and industry previews. It opens to the public Jan. 19.

Here are some of the new cars and experimental concept vehicles unveiled at the show:

- CADILLAC ELR: General Motors is trying to take the Chevrolet Volt's electric technology upscale in a new Cadillac. The ELR has the same battery and gas-powered generator as the Volt. The car has angular lights and fenders like other new Cadillacs, but it also has a more sloped, forward-leaning aerodynamic look. It also has a plush new interior that differentiates it from the Volt and sets the tone for future Cadillacs.

- FORD ATLAS CONCEPT: Ford is trying to keep its rivals at bay with a concept that hints at the look of the next F-Series pickup. The Atlas has a chiseled design and a bigger, more elaborate grille. Ford is emphasizing fuel economy. The Atlas has shutters on the grille and wheels that close automatically, improving aerodynamics. The new truck also will weigh several hundred pounds less than the current model and have a more efficient engine. Ford won't say when the new truck goes on sale, but it's likely to be a 2015 model.

6. Cadillac cars have changed

Cadillac has taken their cars to a new level. The new ATS can compete with the BMW's and Audi's now. The CTS coupe is pure sex with performance to back up it's looks. The CTS-V can take on the BMW's M3 . The ELT will take the electric car in a new direction. The stupid GOP has hurt the Volt sales . Thank you president for saving GM .
