2015 Mustang Will Indeed Be At NAIAS, So Will Cadillac's Elmiraj
There’s been some speculation that after Ford’s big multi-continent reveal of the all-new 2015 Mustang that the new pony car will not be seen in public again till the New York Auto Show in the spring. As you can see from the photos taken today at Cobo Hall while the big Detroit show is being set up, the new Mustang be on display. Not just on display, Ford is making a big deal out of the new car and the nameplate’s 50th anniversary. A 1965 Mustang will be on display along with at least one concept car that was part of the original Mustang’s gestation and Ford has set up a Mustang memorabilia shop where attendees to the public part of the NAIAS will be able to buy personalized Mustang mementos. The most obvious sign that the ’15 Mustang will be on display was a 2015 Mustang convertible already on a turntable, under a sheet of protective plastic. An empty turntable nearby will probably hold the coupe.
It wasn’t on the show floor yet, but the fact that there was a sign on the wall of the Cadillac display that read, under its protective coating, “Elmiraj”, means that Cadillac’s highly praised show car, thought to be the basis of Cadillac’s anticipated large flagship sedan (or coupe, according to some reports) will join the new Mustang at the ’14 NAIAS.

- Analoggrotto Does it include a date with Mary Barra?
- Tassos ask me if I care.
- ToolGuy • Nice vehicle, reasonable price, good writeup. I like your ALL CAPS. 🙂"my mid-trim EX tester is saddled with dummy buttons for a function that’s not there"• If you press the Dummy button, does a narcissist show up spouting grandiose comments? Lol.
- MaintenanceCosts These are everywhere around here. I'm not sure the extra power over a CR-V hybrid is worth the fragile interior materials and the Kia dealership experience.
- MaintenanceCosts It's such a shame about the unusable ergonomics. I kind of like the looks of this Camaro and by all accounts it's the best-driving of the current generation of ponycars. A manual 2SS would be a really fun toy if only I could see out of it enough to drive safely.
Given that it was the centerpiece of the Ford booth at CES this past week it'd be pretty silly if it wasn't also at Detroit. I have to say that after seeing it in person I'm not so keen on the look from the front. Hopefully it'll look a little more aggressive with a different grille.
"A 1965 Mustang will be on display along with at least one concept car that was part of the original Mustang’s gestation" I'm assuming this means the first production Mustang and the 1962 concept car, both of which are normally on display in Dearborn. Can't wait for this auto show. Gonna be a whole lotta awesome
