Beginning this summer, the company will rollout 10 vehicles embedded with LTE including the Impala, Corvette Stingray, Equinox, Malibu, Spark, Spark RV, Silverado, Silverado HD, the Volt and the Orlando.

In 2013 Ford play a prominent role in the show and this year I expect to see a big announcement from Audi as Audi AG Chairman Rupert Stadler will be a keynote speaker at the show Monday evening.
