2018 Chicago Auto Show Review

Chevrolet Silverado

While 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the Chevrolet Silverado, the automaker isn’t lingering on the past. The all new truck didn’t just get an exterior refresh, it also weighs in 450 pounds lighter than the previous model while still maintaining a high-strength steel bed. The new Silverado also features a segment-first power tailgate that can be opened with the click of a button on your key fob.

The Need for Speed

You can always count on visitors to the Chicago Auto Show flocking to the fastest cars on display, and 2018 was no different. Automakers showed off classic favorites like the Porsche 911 Carrera T and the Acura NSX, while showgoers were surprised by manufacturers like Jeep and Kia. Yes, Kia. The Kia Stinger boasts an impressive 0-60 in 4.7 seconds, while the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trailhawk features a 707-horsepower supercharged V8.

Charging Towards the Future

Automakers were keen to show off the strides that they have made in their push towards a greener future. Nearly every booth was showing off their latest electronic vehicles, from the BMW i8 to an electric Mini Cooper which will be joining the lineup in 2019. While Tesla remains notably absent from the Chicago Auto Show, visitors frequently compare the popular automaker to each manufacturer’s electric offering.

Going Off-Road with Jeep

Visitors to the Chicago Auto Show got a first-hand look at the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler with a visit to the Jeep Test Track. This fun-filled experience shows off the off-road capabilities and comfort of a brand-new Jeep and remains a crowd favorite each year.
