While the public days at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS)—or the Detroit Auto Show as most of us know it—don't start until this weekend, the press conferences are over, and as usual there was plenty of news about products, concept cars, and technology from the show floor.

We've also taken a day or so to process what we saw, and separate the hits from the also-rans. And now, in addition to summing up some trends we've seen out of this important show, we’re naming names.

Among the four of us attending the show from High Gear Media, we each singled out a best production model as well as a best concept car. Each of us were also to name a second choice, which was used to help settle ties. We've named the vehicles that received multiple votes winners and those that had at least one vote runners up.

Follow to the next page to see each pick. You'll find some supporting quotes, excerpts, and insights on each model, direct from those on our editorial team, on why they’re the most important, noteworthy, or exciting models from the show. And be sure to click the links to read all about these models in our Detroit Auto Show coverage here at The Car Connection and over at our show hub at Motor Authority.
