FCA Won't Bring Any Exciting New Models To The Detroit Auto Show

2017 Detroit Auto Show

It will have a stand, but no new reveals will be present.

When we did our list of the best concept cars from 2016, of course Fiat Chrysler filled at least one slot on that list. Last year saw FCA create some insane concepts such as the Hellcat-powered Ram Rebel TRX Concept and 707-hp Trailcat Concept. That is why were so excited to see what the Italian-American automaker could come up with for the Detroit auto show. Now, Automotive News reports that FCA has almost nothing new to reveal at this year's show. Of course FCA will still have a huge booth, but there won't be anything we haven't seen before.

FCA was reportedly more interested in the CES show, where it revealed its Chrysler Portal BEV minivan concept a week early. This means that FCA will be at the show, but won't hold any news conferences to reveal new products. Clearly, this decision wasn't made because there weren't any products in the pipeline. We thought we could see the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk, the next-generation Jeep Wrangler or the next-generation Ram 1500, but none of those cars are ready to be shown. It's sad to see a company that's known for such zany concept cars be quiet at the biggest auto show in North America, but perhaps this decision is better than endlessly teasing a car until we no longer care about it.

We have seen, in cases like the Acura NSX, that showing a car at too many auto shows before it is ready can make people lose interest. On the other hand, a well-timed surprise like the Ford GT can absolutely blow people's minds at an auto show. FCA may be a disappointment at Detroit, but we can't wait to see what it can do later in the year.
