The organizers of the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit have released the official NAIAS Press Conference Schedule for next month’s show and for the second year in a row, Chevrolet has no official events planned.
It was just a couple of weeks ago that we learned that the Corvette team was skipping Detroit as the location to reveal the C8 Mid-Engine Corvette. The fact that Chevrolet is nowhere to be found on the official schedule should be confirmation for those who were still hoping to see it debut in the Motor City.
In fact, the only GM brand to have an official press conference is Cadillac, which is holding their event on Sunday, January 13th. And before you say “see I told you the ME is a Cadillac”, we understand they are introducing a large crossover model called the XT6.
Here is the official NAIAS 2019 Press Conference Schedule:
The C8 Corvette has made news recently regarding a potential delay in the development and production of the cars that is rumored to be six months due to issues with the car’s electrical system. Some have said that this delay had pushed the reveal back from NAIAS but it’s our understanding that Detroit wasn’t in the running and that another site had already been selected. That “other” site has recently been rumored to be the New York Auto Show in April, but that location has yet to be confirmed by Chevrolet.
