US, European and Asian car makers are scheduled to unveil their new models this week at the North American International Auto Show.

Commonly called “The Detroit Auto Show”, it is considered the barometer for the entire industry.

This year, US manufacturers will be given the opportunity to show the world how they have recovered from near collapse from just a few years ago.
