qotd what are you looking forward to at naias

As I gear up for NAIAS (read: do laundry, look for my passport), I am scanning the schedule for what press conferences are worth going to and what’s worth skipping? If you have any special requests, speak now in the comments or forever hold you peace. Personally, I’m most looking forward to seeing the new GM full-size trucks. I liked the old GMT900 pickups, but the bar has been moved forward consecutively by both Ford and Ram. The old formula of a simple, honest no-frills truck may not be enough – and that could be a disastrous miscalculation by GM, leading to a Civic/Malibu-esque need for a mid-cycle refresh.

    Pictures of the new Suburban/Yukon XL if they are being revealed would be nice.

    Chevy SS, Mazda6 diesel and Lincoln Focus (seen spy shots). I wish they would offer wagon versions or at least a hatchback of Fusion and Mazda6.

    Sorry D-Rock, but this QOTD stuff is looking like lazy Jalopnik content. It's all about content quality at TTAC, or it used to be.
