NAIAS kicks off Monday in Detroit

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT, MI (WNEM) -

Car enthusiasts across the country are flocking to Detroit this week as the North American International Auto Show kicks off Monday in the Motor City.

Monday and Tuesday are media preview days.

The big three and other automakers will unveil the newest cars as fifty new car reveals are slated for the show, including the anticipated 2014 Chevy Corvette C7.

Jeep will also be one of the many unveiling their latest models, including the 2014 Grand Cherokee.

The new SUV will make the jump to diesel power with a eco diesel V6 engine that's expected to get 21 miles per gallon in the city and 30 miles per gallon on the highway.

This will mark the first major expansion into diesel in the U.S. by a domestic SUV maker.

Jeep will be one of the automakers standing out at the auto show, however, where the Cherokees will be produced is creating some controversy.

Fiat, Chrysler and Guangzhou Automobile Group are close to reaching an agreement to produce the vehicles in China.

The announcement on the agreement could be made at the auto show Monday.

This comes after Chrysler added a third shift to its Jefferson North Assembly Plant in Detroit back in October.

The auto company also plans to add additional workers to its Toledo plant next fall.
