    Jeep Gladiator concept

    The Jeep Gladiator concept has mesmerized Jeep fans ever since it was shown at the 2005 Detroit auto show. Jeep brand head Mike Manley says he still gets asked about it, or at least a Jeep branded pickup, regularly. The concept truck was big -- it was built on a Ram frame, though it had a Wrangler body -- but it looked like a utilitarian dream. -- Larry Vellequette Go to the Gallery »

    Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Concept

    The Q50 Eau Rouge remakes the recently introduced Q50 sedan into a Formula One racing-inspired sports sedan, with sculpted body-side rocker wings, carbon-fiber body components, ceramic exhausts and a restyled aerodynamic back end. That is the direction of a new wave of Infiniti products that should begin appearing in 2016, says Johan de Nysschen, Infiniti Motor Co. president. Go to the Gallery »

    Nissan Sport Sedan Concept

    The concept, for all intents and purposes, is the next Maxima, which is due out in late 2015. Nissan global design chief Shiro Nakamura said the four-door concept uses sports car proportions and takes "sports car principles" in a sedan to the next level. The concept features a low, back-sloping roof and a concealed B-pillar. The front end displays a sharp V-shaped grille and boomerang-shaped headlights. The aggressive design should end sporadic speculation that the Maxima could be dropped from Nissan's lineup, now that the mid-sized Altima sedan has grown larger and more powerful.

    2015 Hyundai Genesis

    Hyundai will maintain its sub-$40,000 sticker price for its second-generation Genesis premium sedan when it goes on sale this spring. The 2015 Genesis rides on a new rear-wheel-drive platform that now includes optional all-wheel drive, a first for a Hyundai sedan. Go to the Gallery »

    Kia GT4 Stinger concept

    The concept is a two-plus-two setup, with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder generating 315 horsepower routed to the rear wheels through a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission. Kia envisions the concept as a track-capable vehicle that can double as a sporty daily driver. Engineers and designers at Kia's U.S. design studio in Irvine, Calif., created a bespoke platform for the GT4 Stinger, riding on a double-wishbone chassis with wheels set wider at the back than they are at the front.

    Volkswagen Beetle Dune concept

    Volkswagen's Beetle Dune is a variant on its iconic car that evokes the Beetle-based dune buggies favored by tuners in the 1960s. It's a revival of a concept that Volkswagen showed at the Los Angeles auto show in 2000, which was never built. Likewise, some people might say this one is just eye candy for the auto show crowd. But that may not be the case. "While the concept car shown in California was not very realistic, especially with its interior and roof structure, the 2014 Dune Concept is a lot more feasible," VW said in a statement.

    Toyota FT-1 concept

    Toyota says the FT-1 concept sports car is merely a design exercise, but more than a few features of the vehicle suggest that it could have a future as a production car. While paying homage to the history of Toyota sports cars, the FT-1 wasn't specifically designed to be the next Supra, a nameplate that has been absent from the United States for more than a decade.

    2014 Porsche 911 Targa

    The 2014 models restore the Targa's classic hoop-shaped roof bar after a 21-year absence from the market. But unlike the original Targa, this roof system is fully automatic. At the touch of a button, a rear glass window opens and tilts out of the way to allow a soft convertible top to fold down behind the rear seats. It takes 19 seconds to open or close the roof while the vehicle is parked. Go to the Gallery »

    Chevrolet is looking to polish its performance-car credentials with the introduction of the 2015 Corvette Z06, the most powerful production car in GM's history. The Z06 will kick out 625 hp and 635 pounds-feet of torque from its 6.2-liter, supercharged V-8 engine. The car features what GM says are several firsts for the new Z06, including a supercharger, an automatic transmission and a removable roof panel. Go to the Gallery »

    2015 GMC Canyon

    General Motors is betting that improved offerings can breathe new life into the mid-sized pickup segment. The 2015 GMC Canyon was designed to resemble a "little Sierra" to attract buyers of full-sized pickups from other brands. GM executives believe some owners of bigger trucks such as Ford's F-150 and the Ram 1500 want a smaller vehicle that still has most of the hauling and towing capability. Go to the Gallery »
