The 2020 Chicago Auto Show was the last major auto show to occur before large gatherings came to a grinding halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s symbolic that Chicago will also be one of the first major shows to return, albeit in a slightly altered format. The 2021 Chicago Auto Show will be condensed into five days from its traditional 10-day run. It will feature a reduced roster of automakers but no shortage of activities for car lovers to enjoy.

Prospective shoppers who have been hard-pressed to find an auto show to browse — or an available vehicle to test-drive amid the ongoing inventory shortage — will get the opportunity this week as the show kicks off Thursday at McCormick Place.
