Today we’re proud to release our DVN Report on the North American International Auto Show. Although we would have liked to present it last week, we hope you’ll agree it’s been worth the wait while we worked hard to make it our best-ever NAIAS report, with nearly 200 professional photographs.
The cars and trucks in the report are all covered in general elsewhere, but this DVN Report is the only one focusing closely on the lights. The main part of the report has small, printer-friendly images—including multiple views of particularly interesting lamps—with description, commentary, and analysis. All of an automaker’s marques are grouped together. The appendix is where you’ll find the real eye-candy: large, full-detail presentations of the lamps, along with some bonus photos. These large images are ideal for scrutiny on screen, and they’re presented in alphabetical order by vheicle marque and model.
NAIAS 2015 was a very interesting show; the concept car count was down compared to some previous years, but technical, design, and style innovation was at an unprecedented level in the production and pre-production cars. Lots more LED headlamps, including the first LED headlamps on a pickup truck. An increasing number of LED front fog lamps. And a growing number of callouts and other indications that the industry is ready to bring fully adaptive headlighting to the North American market as soon as the way will be paved.
I hope you will enjoy perusing the report as much as we have enjoyed producing it.
