Tuesday, it's Ford's turn to take the stage.
The auto company plans to unveil its all new Ford Fusion during a news conference at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.

The conference will take place just before 9 a.m.
Just a day before his State of the State address, Gov. Rick Snyder will tour the North American International Auto Show. He will begin at the General Motors showcase, and media are welcome to join.
Besides getting a sneak peek at the cars of the future, many automakers were anticipating the awards for car and truck of the year.
Monday, the 2013 Cadillac ATS was named car of the year, which is a first for the luxury GM line.
The 2013 Dodge Ram 1500 won truck of the year.
