Shift from Trucks to Cars Highlighted at the North American International Auto ShowSmall cars played a big role at this years 2010 NAIAS in Detroit. In fact, even the finalists for the Truck of the Year award were not trucks in the traditional sense. As trends continue to shift from trucks to cars, automakers that were once known for their trucks, like Chevy and Ford, unveiled their new, smaller lineups. Already doing well in Asia and Europe, the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze has been refined and re-introduced stateside. The next-generation Aveo RS show car, a major player in the global market, was also unveiled. And Ford rolled out a 40 MPG global Focus, which will look the same in the U.S. as it does in Asia and Europe. Both the Focus and the Cruze will be available in the U.S. later this year.Produced for General Motors.
