2000 L.A. Auto Show Preview

The Greater Los Angeles Auto Show will be the first major international auto show of 2000. When it opens to the public on January 8, visitors will get a chance to view the world debuts of at least 17 vehicles. This week at The Car Connection, we’re offering you this special sneak peek of a handful of the vehicles that will make their debut in a few weeks. Right now, the information is slim, but as we hear more from the auto-show grapevine, we’ll keep you updated.

GM is slated to introduce 10 concept vehicles worldwide in 2000 and Los Angeles will see two of those vehicles — the Oldsmobile Profile concept shown here, and the production 2001 Pontiac Aztek. The Profile is expected to be powered by the overhead-cam 3.5-liter V-6 engine, and could spell the future direction of a future Olds lifestyle-activity vehicle.
