Only a small number of trucks and SUVs will debut at the Detroit auto show next week. But the vehicles that will appear are important to automakers and come in many shapes and sizes.

As reported by Trucks.com, one of the most anticipated models is the redesigned Ram HD pickup, a critical product for parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.

FCA will present the Ram 2500 and 3500, adding renewed heavy-duty capability to its pickup truck lineup. The Ram HD joins the light-duty Ram 1500 that debuted in 2018. It brings FCA a refreshed range to market against the Ford F-Series and Chevrolet Silverado in an intensifying race for pickup sales.

“It’s a highly profitable segment for Ram, so they need to continue to be good at it,” said Stephanie Brinley, an analyst at IHS Markit.

Other vehicles expected to debut in Detroit include the hot-selling Ford Explorer SUV. Kia Motors will officially release its Telluride after several concepts previewing the adventure-focused SUV. General Motors will present the all-new Cadillac XT6, a three-row crossover that expands its range of SUV models.
