As automaker investors are ultimately investing largely in the quality of the vehicles being made, the Detroit Auto Show is a great place for them to get a lot of good takeaways about what the coming year will look like for various companies in the industry. In this video, Motley Fool industrials analyst Blake Bos gives us the show's winners in the North American "Car of the Year" and "Truck of the Year" categories, describes some important new features and redesigns that he particularly liked, and tells us his four biggest takeaways from the show.

One of the major automakers Blake discusses in the video is Ford. Ford has been a longtime pick of Motley Fool superinvestor David Gardner, and has soared 48.89% since he recommended it in November 2009. David specializes in identifying game-changing companies like this long before others are keen to their disruptive potential, and he helps like-minded investors profit while Wall Street catches up. I invite you to learn more about how he picks his winners with a free, personal tour of his flagship service: Supernova. Inside, you'll discover the science behind his market-trouncing returns. Just click here now for instant access.
