CARS.COM — The 2017 Chicago Auto Show will have plenty to keep visitors busy when the exhibition opens to the public Saturday, Feb. 11, and runs through Feb. 19. On day one of the nation’s largest consumer automotive event, we’ve covered five new vehicles, some cool new appearance packages and trim levels, and a handful of concepts and pop-culture-themed vehicles.
On the list of high-profile new models making their big bow in the Windy City: the 2018 Subaru Legacy sedan and 2018 Hyundai Elantra GT hatchback, along with a trio of SUVs in the 2018 Dodge Durango SRT performance SUV, 2018 Ford Expedition and 2018 Toyota Sequoia.
We also saw aggressively sporty appearance packages, including the Chevrolet Redline editions, available on nine models, and Nissan’s Midnight Editions, available on six. That’s in addition to new trim levels for the 2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport (the Limited Edition) and the 2018 Toyota RAV4 (the Adventure trim).
Meanwhile, on the just-for-fun front are the Nissan NV Cargo X van concept, the Lego Batmobile ahead of this weekend’s “The Lego Batman Movie” release, and last but certainly not least, the 2017 Toyota Tundra Chicago Cubs World Series Trophy Truck.
Our coverage continues Friday, so check back early and often for the rest of our CAS coverage straight from the show floor.
