Hot on the floor from the Los Angeles Auto Show – 2011

Ford Escape, 2013 model year

Running from November 18th – 27th, the Los Angeles Auto Show showcases some of the biggest draws from the automotive world. Despite being one of the last auto shows for the year, the L.A. Auto Show is easily one of the best.

Judging by the opulence, grandeur, and sheer volume of vehicles at the show this year, it seems clear that thoughts of recessions and struggling car sales are but specs in a rear view mirror. From dozens of new car debuts, to hundreds of polished show vehicles, to an entire hall dedicated to showcasing vehicle aftermarket accessories; there is so much to take in at this year’s L.A. Auto Show.

Here are a few of the new and exciting models being unveiled at the show this year:
