Besides the Grand Cherokee SRT8 and Jeep Commander, the following new vehicles made their debut this past week:

Dodge Charger SRT8

Dodge Charger Police Package

Ford GT

Ford Shelby Cobra GT500

And here are some photos of various concepts from the show:

Ford Fairlane

Ford Fairlane is a segment-busting people mover at home from Napa to Manhattan. The Ford Fairlane concept is an upscale six-passenger, three-row people mover with a unique shape. Its well-balanced proportions are the foundation for a modern, sophisticated design. Fairlane features a well-defined hood, a large cabin with upright A-pillars, four side doors with low step-in height, and a rear door with an industry-leading three-way tailgate. The rear door opens to the left or right, while the upper glass section flips up. Fairlane's design blends this new shape with sophisticated elements such as the bold, three-bar grille that signifies the new face of Ford. The three-zone interior blends function - including fold-flat second-and third-row seating and a unique "rolling kitchen" rear utility area - with touches of executive-aircraft-inspired luxury, like stainless steel accents and comfortable, compulsively tactile natural woven fabrics. Ford Fairlane ensures a stunning arrival wherever you travel.


And before you say it looks like an armored car, here's from Ford:
As the population shifts back to the big cities, you'll need a rolling urban command center. Enter the SYNUS concept vehicle, a mobile techno sanctuary sculpted in urban armor and inspired by the popular B-cars of congested international hotspots. Short and slim for easy city maneuvering, it looks bank-vault tough on the outside - with intimidating and outrageous styling that even features a vault-style spinner handle in back with deadbolt door latching. When parked and placed in secure mode, SYNUS deploys protective shutters over the windshield and side glass. Small windows on the flanks and roof are non-opening and bullet-resistant. The SYNUS concept also signals security through its use of a driver-side dial operated combination lock on the B-pillar. Flat glass in a slightly raked windshield furthers the armored-car look of this concept. Bold wheel arches make a design statement as well as accommodate the vehicle's exceptionally wide track.

Ford Shelby GR-1
The streets are the stage for this ultra-sleek, forward-thinking work of art - the Ford Shelby GR-1. The Ford Shelby GR-1 concept springs from a long line of Ford performance project cars and quickly establishes itself as one of the most contemporary and dramatic front-engine, two-seat, fastback supercars. This running prototype reaches closer to reality with a 605-horsepower, 390-cubic-inch all-aluminum V-10 engine, a 6-speed transaxle with limited-slip differential and a road-tested version of the Ford GT suspension.

GMC Graphyte
The GMC Graphyte concept vehicle is a refined SUV with all the capability expected in a four-wheel-drive truck, but with 25 percent improved fuel economy enabled by GMs latest two-mode full hybrid propulsion system. A tailored design, including an elegant, metal-framed grille gives the Graphyte an urban flair. It was designed and built at the GM Advanced Studio in Coventry, England.

Jaguar Advanced Lightweight Coupe

The ever present Toyota FJ Cruiser

VW Ragster
Nothing to see here.
