Watch: 5 Biggest Debuts of the 2016 Detroit Auto Show

We went to the North American International Auto Show in Detroit to get an up-close-and-personal look at the best cars, trucks—and yes, even a minivan—set to hit showrooms in 2017.

After walking the floor of this year's NAIAS for two straight days, a couple of things were clear. First, we need new shoes. (Damn blisters!) Second, we are truly in a golden age of the automobile. Whether talking sports coupe or van, electric or gas powered, Korean or Swedish, almost all of the hundreds of vehicles on display deserved a close examination. Of course, that made picking our five favorites quite difficult—but here they are in the above video, from Ford, BMW, Lexus, Chrysler, and Buick. Gentlemen, start your drooling!
