Well that went fast! Here we are at the end of a very long second day at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, MI. While most of the big reveals happened yesterday, today was a great opportunity to check out a few new things like the all-new, production-ready Lincoln Continental and the Acura Precision concept, as well as doubling back on anything we might’ve missed in yesterday’s madness. We also saw the new Honda Ridgeline pickup, GMC Acadia, Infiniti Q60 Coupe, Audi’s H-Tron Concept as well as the new Allroad, and the big, boxy, and beautiful Kia Telluride SUV concept. The most interesting car of Day 2 was the dorky little Toyota Kikai concept. It’s a compact 3-seater with exposed engine and suspension that looks more off-road buggy than compact city car but we applaud Toyota for trying something weird and different. We were also blown away by Ford’s demonstration of the new GT’s Race Mode which drops the car on its wheels and raises up a gloriously aerodynamic wing that doubles as an air brake. Mind = blown!
Although most of the big reveals were yesterday at the 2015 LA Auto Show, the low-pressure schedule today gave us time to make the rounds and get up close and personal with all the things we missed or wanted a second look at. We made sure to circle back and check out the Subaru Impreza Sedan Concept that we didn’t get the chance to see yesterday, as well as some of the new stuff Volkswagen, more crazy concepts from Kia, and some other odds and ends. And that’s a wrap! Goodbye, LA. We’ll miss your glorious weather.
And again, make sure to follow @MorriesAuto on Instagram or on Youtube (youtube.com/morriesauto) for more photos and video from the 2015 LA Auto Show.

As many of you already noticed, we make it a point to head to all the major auto shows in the country and we just got back from the New York International Auto show where we got coverage of all the latest KIA models for you.
Kia’s big debut wasn’t for the K900 at NYIAS, but rather the Sedona, which truly impressed us with its redesigned interior & exterior. The Sedona will be Kia’s first model to offer Geo-fencing, Speed Alert, Curfew Alert, and Driving Score. Although the Sedona was a big hit, we want to stay focused on the K900 and share a few pictures we captured of this beautiful sedan that was on display.
After seeing the K900 in person, we know that this gorgeous vehicle will bring big changes for Kia in the luxury segment. Check out some of the photos we took of the sedan while at the New York Auto Show. Make sure to stay tuned to the Morrie’s Minnetonka KIA Facebook page and website to be the first to know when the K900 lands here at Morrie’s!
We’re getting excited for the arrival of the KIA K900 here at Morrie’s Minnetonka Kia! Be one of the first to drive the all-new K900 in the Twin Cities. Want to know more about this vehicle? Check out our blog post from last week for more details.
Kia has really been on a roll lately, hot off the heels of the Cadenza, which arrived here at Morrie’s last year, the exciting arrival of the luxurious K900 is highly anticipated. This beautiful vehicle gives you style, comfort and convenience at an affordable price.
Representatives from KIA stopped by our dealership this morning to set up the K900 display and you know what that means! The vehicle will be arriving here soon, just in time for spring.
If you have any questions about the K900 or any other Kia models available, please contact us at (952) 544 0376. Any of our Buy Happy team members will be available to answer any questions you may have.
Kia blew us away last year with the unveiling of the all-new K900 luxury sedan at the LA Auto Show and we were there to get live coverage for you. “In honor of the company’s 20th anniversary, the K900 was designed as a symbol of how far the brand has come and the next bold example of the challenger spirit that has benefitted Kia over two decades of growth and maturation.” said Michael Sprague, executive VP of Sales and Marketing at KIA.
The K900 is equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 engine able to achieve 420 horsepower and accelerate from 0-60 in just 5.5 seconds. Also available is a V6 option, which will produce about 311 horsepower.
The interior includes advanced technology just as you would see in any other luxury vehicle on the market. The Head’s Up Display offers information you need while your driving projected on the windshield. The projection will also adjust depending on the brightness outside at the time of use. This new feature will help drivers to stay safe by focusing more on the road.
The interior is equipped with a Lexicon Logic7 audio system with 17-speaker surround sound. Other features inside the vehicle include adaptive front lighting, blind spot monitoring, lane keeping system, and a 16-point power adjustable drivers seat.
We look forward to the arrival of the KIA K900 here at Morrie’s Minnetonka KIA this summer! Stay tuned to our Facebook page for all the latest news and arrivals at the dealership!

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!
