We had a full day today at the North American Auto Show where a number of brands in the Morrie’s portfolio had something new and different to bring to the table.
The show stopper of the day was none other than the industry’s first aluminum pickup, the 2015 Ford F-150, which shed a whopping 700 pounds of curb weight. The 2015 Mustang also created a lot of buzz as you can imagine and we were eager to get an up close look at this iconic redesigned vehicle.
We’ve been anticipating the reveal of the Kia GT4 Stinger Concept and as usual their press conference did not disappoint. We got to hear from “The Kia 6″ the group of designers responsible for the vision of this hot new concept.
Other noteworthy reveals from day one included the 2015 Hyundai Genesis and the Nissan Sports Sedan Concept, which gives a sneak peek at the next-generation Maxima. We were also able to catch the reveals from a few luxury brands including the Porsche 911 Targa and the Bentley Continental GT V8 S!
Stay tuned for more photos from day 2 of the North American International Auto Show here in Detroit and make sure to head over to our YouTube page for overview videos on all these exciting new models!
It was another busy day at the Los Angeles Convention Center for the 2013 LA Auto Show! We made sure to get plenty of coverage of all the Morrie’s brands, plus more to share with you. Here are more pictures and information from the latest debuts here at the show.
Nissan had quite the presence at the Auto Show this week with multiple Nismo performance vehicles including the all-new Nissan Sentra Nismo concept, the 2014 Juke Nismo RS, which will be available in January and finally the showstopper, the 2015 GT-R Nismo!

Ford’s main attraction this week at the Auto Show was the 2015 Edge Crossover Concept and it sure drew a lot of attention. We were excited to be able to see the concept that will hopefully pave the way for the future of the production model Edge.
We were very excited to be able to get a closer look at both the 2015 Subaru WRX and the Subaru Legacy concept! The WRX stole the show this week as auto enthusiasts have been waiting for the production model to be unveiled since the concept debuted last year in New York. The Legacy concept was just as beautiful as we had anticipated with menacing headlights and a low sleek roofline.

Kia’s k900 luxury sedan also debuted this week which gave us a better idea of the direction that Kia is headed with their transition to a full luxury lineup. Stay tuned for more information on when we will have one on our show floor at Morrie’s Kia.
We also got to see some excitement at the Hyundai booth where they brought an all-new Tucson hydrogen fuel-cell crossover, the 2014 Hyundai Elantra and a Veloster Turbo R-SPEC! Check out our pictures below.

Cadillac brought the Elmiraj concept to the Auto Show this week and it was constantly surrounded with individuals trying to get a gander. This vehicle is easy on the eyes with it’s long sleek sweeping hood, elegant look and gorgeous interior. This vehicle may not make it into production but we are keeping our fingers crossed. As well as the concept, Cadillac also had their recently revealed 2015 Cadillac Escalade on display.
Morrie’s is proud to bring you the latest news as it happens live from the LA Auto Show. Make sure to check our YouTube page soon for videos on all these great new models!
Cadillac’s new midsize luxury sports sedan, the 2014 CTS, was unveiled at this year’s New York Auto Show. The redesign makes the vehicle noticeably lower, longer and lighter than last generation CTS. This all-new vehicle is packed with technology including the signature Cadillac CUE system, an 8inch color touch screen and a 12.3 inch gauge cluster in the center stack.
You can choose from three different engine options under the hood. A 2.0 liter 4 cylinder direct injection turbocharged engine that achieves 272 horsepower or a 3.6-liter direct injection with 321 horsepower, both connected to 6 speed automatic transmission with magnesium paddles for shifting.
The third option is the V Sport model equipped with a 3.6-liter twin turbocharged engine with 420 horsepower and an 8-speed automatic transmission. We will announce pricing information and arrival dates as soon as they become available.
This year we were lucky enough to get a sneak peek at all the latest model debuts during press week at the 113th annual New York Auto Show. The show featured over 1,000 vehicles in a 900,000 square foot arena. From the unveiling of the Subaru WRX concept, to the roll out of 3 new Kia models, none of the brands left us disappointed. We are very excited to share this exclusive coverage with you and give you a little bit of insight into what goes on at one of the Nation’s largest auto shows.
A recent trip to the LA Auto show to see the unveiling of the all-new 2014 Mazda6, amongst many other exciting cars, triggered a trifecta of firsts for me. This was my first trip to a major auto show, my first (and second) time to an In-N-Out Burger and the first time I’ve driven a Mazda MX-5 Miata more than 100 yards. The latter came complements of Mazda USA, who graciously provided me and a colleague with a 2013 Mazda MX-5 Special Edition to drive during our stay in SoCal. The MX-5 proved to be a great car to drive up and down Pacific Coast Highway.
Perhaps it was the pre-trip excitement, a bad frame of reference or poor planning, but it wasn’t until we arrived at Mazda HQ in Irvine, California, that we realized that our car would be challenged in the cargo carrying department. You see, in addition to our regular luggage and briefcases, we were also hauling a full load of camera gear to get footage at the show. In a prior life I spent many years working for company that sold two-seat roadsters, that shall remain unnamed, offering substantial trunk space in a front and rear trunk. It was not until we had our rendezvous with the MX-5 in Mazda’s parking lot that it finally clicked that not all convertibles are adept at swallowing large pieces of luggage. Despite its Spartan trunk space, some creative packing allowed us to fit everything quite snugly in the car. So snug, in fact, that when it came time grab the camera to snap a picture of our packing prowess, I realized it was in the bottom of the trunk. So, you will have to envision a trunk overflowing with luggage and equipment.
