Detroit's 2012 Auto Show Jan. 9-22

American consumers are set to buy more cars this year, according to a forecast by automotive analyst Edmunds.com.
A total of 13.6 million vehicles will be sold in 2012, Edmunds.com predicted, a rise of some 800,000 models from the 12.8 million predicted to be sold in 2011.
Edmunds.com described the growth as 'moderate but solid', noting that 2012 will be the third year of growth since car buying bottomed out in 2009, the year that saw the bankruptcies of Detroit giants General Motors and Chrysler.
The promising forecast comes just days before the country’s largest car event, the North American International Auto Show, runs in Detroit from Jan. 9 – 22.  
Organizers of this month's North American International Auto Show have promised to 'absolutely rock' the industry, releasing the first schedule of press conferences which will see automakers from around the world unveil new products.
The show will likely see around 40 new vehicle introductions during the two-day press period from January 9-10, ranging from refreshes to new production models and concept vehicles which aren't quite ready for the market.
