The 2012 Portland International Auto Show opens this weekend amid renewed motor vehicle sales.

After slumping during the recession, new car and truck sales increased 10 percent in 2011, reaching nearly 13 million purchases by the end of the year. Nearly 14 million new cars and trucks are expected to be sold in 2012, according to Paul Taylor, chief economist of the National Automobile Dealers Association.
Hundreds of new cars and trucks from more than 35 manufacturers will be on display at this year’s auto show, which runs from Thursday, Jan. 26, to Sunday, Jan. 29, at the Oregon Convention Center. Some will be grouped by price and fuel-economy, allowing visitors to compare similar models side-by-side for the first time.
