The North American International Auto Show kicks off on Monday and it appears Ford will indeed use the event to introduce the new GT, Shelby Mustang GT350R and F-150 SVT Raptor.

According to stage map sent to Autoblog, Ford will show at least three new models which are codenamed Phoenix, Hummingbird 2 and F-150 SVT Raptor Teaser. The latter is pretty self explanatory as it will likely be a thinly veiled concept that previews the production model.

Hummingbird 2, on the other hand, is reportedly the Shelby Mustang GT350R. This seems to sense as a "Historic GT350R" is located nearby and the regular Shelby Mustang GT350 has already been introduced - thus the 2 designation.

Last but not least, the Phoenix is rumored to be the GT successor. Given its prime position and close proximately to a GT and GT40, we're inclined to agree.
