You’ve got to love the blogs. Over the past two weeks, the precious embargoes extended to journalists by auto manufacturers to keep quiet upcoming introductions have been violated left and right. That’s right, on the eve of the Detroit Auto Show — which opens to the press on January 7 — we know a lot about what’s on deck for the opening act of the year.

So far, ahead of schedule, we’ve seen:

Chevrolet Malibu, a dressed up answer to the Camry.
Chrysler Nassau, a luxury coupe based on the 300.
Jeep Trailhawk, an edgy concept powered by BLUETEC diesel.
Dodge Viper, a whopping 8.3 liter V10 — enough said.

Don't forget that, thanks to the February 2007 issue of Car & Driver magazine reaching its subscribers ahead of the embargo dates, we've also seen the Lincoln MKR and Jaguar C-FX concepts ahead of schedule.
