2017 Detroit Auto Show Debuts: Genesis, Lincoln And Kia

Erwin Raphael, the general manager for the new Genesis luxury line, is taking a gentleman pose in front of the 2018 G80 Sport, with its matted Bentley-like grille.

Earl Lucas is back, after making noise with reviving the current generation Taurus a few years ago. Lucas, a chief exterior designer for Lincoln, poses in front of his latest project, the 2018 Navigator Concept.  Unlike the show model, the production version will not offer gullwing doors.

Brian Peterson, a global interior designer for the Kia, has his first big project with the 2017 Niro. Kia's first, all-dedicated hybrid interior has Peterson's handprints all over the vehicle.
