Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I am looking to create a route from Detroit, MI to Chicago, IL and export it with all the road and traffic sign information. I would not be interested in roads in the surrounding area to keep the size to a minimum. My goal is to use this with a simulation software which only accepts OSM formatted .xml files.

It appears that OSRM does something like this (http://map.project-osrm.org/) but it only exports as GPX. Do you have any suggestions?

Everything about routing with OSM based data should be collected at the OSM wiki about Routing.

There are also links to some opensource routing software or webservices. Choose the software that comes near your aim by user interface, and find out how raw OSM data is converted to special data that can be used by those routing apps. Then export the raw OSM data for your route you want (e.g. by filtering or clipping), and try to create some routing.

Or do you need some route information in KML or GeoJSON format or similar?
