• The North American International Auto Show kicked off in Detroit this week.
  • While it looks different than it used to, automakers brought a lot to the show.
  • Here are nine things that stood out to Insider reporters this year.

The North American International Auto Show kicked off in Detroit in September, and while it was largely overshadowed by the United Auto Workers union strike, car makers still made news and showcased large, shiny vehicle displays.

The Detroit show looks a lot differently than it used to. In the past, almost every major global car company would descend on the Motor City, bring the best-of-the-best products to show consumers and often, make major news and launch new vehicles.

But fewer and fewer companies have participated in an official capacity over the past several years. Still, Ford, General Motors, and Jeep-maker Stellantis are holding down the fort, along with a few of the non-domestic brands like Toyota, and there are different features for showgoers to see, like massive indoor track experiences and an electric vehicle learning center.

Here are the nine things that stood out to Insider this year.
