Ford Edge

The Los Angeles Auto Show is a somewhat quiet affair for the Detroit Three. But the auto show that is in the city where General Motors, Ford and Chrysler all covet better sales, is not without news and a few meaningful curtain raisers.
During the past year, General Motors went bankrupt, Chrysler found itself owned by Italy's Fiat. Yet Ford seems to be hitting home runs, knocking them out of the park with regularity.
There's good news, bad news and -- finally -- some smart, encouraging news by and for American drivers.
