When I walked up to the Toyota display here at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit I was struck immediately by the automakers change of pace.
Hybrids are on the back burner. Trucks in front center.
Toyota's turnaround reflects what all the automakers are feeling about hybrids. They're important, but no more so than well designed internal combustion cars, trucks and SUV's.
So at this year's show, there are fewer gas electric models prominently displayed, less talk about the rush to build hybrids, and less fear that American's are running to ditch their gas guzzling trucks and SUV's.
