DEARBORN (WKZO) -- A pair of new SUVs will be on display at the Beijing Auto Show from Ford Motor Company.

The Lincoln MKX concept and the Ford Everest are the automaker's latest effort to grab a portion of the fast growing SUV segment in China. Sales of sport utility vehicles last year were over two-million units and experts say that number will double by 2020.

Ford is also making big strides in catching up to other automakers in the world's largest auto market as sales jumped by 49-percent in 2013.
