January 2007 (Medialink) -- Ford unveiled five vehicles, and a big surprise -- new Sync technology that wirelessly integrates your cell phone or music player into your car's audio system -- at the 2007 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. More than 6500 journalists have descended upon Detroit from more than 60 countries. The automotive companies spend millions of dollars and 2-and-a-half months getting ready for this show. It's the biggest show in North America.
2008 Ford Focus: Redesigned from the inside out with a bold new look and a modern interior. Joining the new Focus 4-door sedan is a sporty 2-door coupe that delivers strong fuel economy and a new design.
2008 Ford Five Hundred: A more distinct, contemporary design - more power - more standard safety features. Under the sculpted hood a 260-horsepower V-6 engine and a more fuel-efficient 6-speed transmission.
Ford Airstream concept: Influenced by Airstream's iconic design and the optimism for the future that Stanley Kubrick captured in his 1960's cult film 2001: A Space Odyssey. The concept is powered by a plug-in hydrogen hybrid fuel cell that operates under electric power at all times. This advanced fuel cell system is half the weight and cost of today's fuel cells and can operate in the dead of winter.
Lincoln MKR concept: Delivers elegant simplicity, environmentally friendly amenities and fuel-saving technology. It contains all of the design cues that Lincoln customers have come to recognize as classic Lincoln design â along with a gorgeous interior with seats trimmed with chrome accents.
Ford Interceptor Concept: A tough muscle car spin on a sedan inspired by Mustang. A V-8 engine delivers 400 horsepower and runs on E-85 ethanol, a blend of 15 percent gas and 85 percent ethanol.

2008 Audi R8 at the Toronto International Auto Show.
This is a review by Vince Bodiford of TheWeekendDrive**** on the 2007 Denver Auto Show. This show will surprise you with everything that it has to offer!
Legendary car-builder Carroll Shelby celebrates the 40th anniversary of his "King of the Road" with the new 2008 Shelby GT500KR at the New York Auto Show. The new KR packs 40 more horses under the hood, making it the most powerful production Ford Mustang ever built. The 2008 Shelby GT500KR will be limited to only 1,000 units.
Famed hot-rod designer Chip Foose also lends his talents to Ford with the 2008 F-150 Foose edition. This production-intent show truck appears at the New York Auto Show. It features a low-slung, street boulevard cruiser look matched with a hot 5.4 liter V-8 engine. To maintain the truck's Built Ford Tough heritage, the Foose edition's low look comes from lowering the springs and shocks only two inches. The rest is pure illusion, as only Chip Foose can create.
Ford brings even more star-power to the New York show with its 2008 Ford Expedition Funkmaster Flex edition. DJ Funkmaster Flex, the hip-hop guru of car customization, worked with Ford designers to create an expressive concept that delivers the Expedition's big SUV authenticity with a unique urban style and presence. The 2008 Ford Expedition Funkmaster Flex edition features custom two-tone paint, a complete 3D carbon body kit and custom interior. The Funkmaster Flex Edition is identified inside and out with distinctive FMF badges. The vehicle will be in dealer showrooms this fall.

Eight, inner-city, middle-school students from Flushing, NY were selected by HUMMER and the After-School All-Stars (ASAS) to spend the day at the New York Auto Show learning the ropes from a top automotive journalist. This unique opportunity brought these students deep inside the glass-and-chrome world of the newest cars and trucks.
The students were chosen from dozens of other teens by way of an essay contest – and spent a day with Alan Taylor of Car and Driver, who is also the automotive reviewer for the Regis and Kelly show. Each student wrote an essay about why they wanted to attend the NYIAS as a journalist for the day.
Students began their day with a chauffeured ride in HUMMER vehicles from their school to the ABC Studios, home of the The Regis and Kelly show. There, they watched Taylor provide viewers with an inside look at the hottest cars at the auto show this year.
To cap off their day as journalists-in-training, the students wrote news stories about their experience at the auto show and their interviews with the publishing experts. Their stories are posted on GM’s FYI blog (*******fyi.gmblogs****) and at the After-School All-Stars website (*******afterschoolallstars****).
