For many Chicagoans, the first sign that spring is on the way is Chicago’s Auto Show.

The nation’s largest auto show, stretching over 1 million square feet across McCormick Place’s north building, has a lot in store for its 108th showing. The Chicago Auto Show features hundreds of vehicles ranging from concept cars to full sized SUVs from the world’s top vehicle manufactures including Ford, Audi, Nissan, and many more.

We saw many brand new 2016-2017 vehicles on display, including Toyota’s new 2017 Tacoma TDR Pro, and the 2016 Mazda CX-9. Also being displayed are brand new concept cars like Acura’s Precision Concept.

The auto show also boasts plenty of activities for attendees, such as test-driving Ford’s vehicle simulator, or test-driving Jeep vehicles on Jeep’s off-road test track. The Chicago Auto Show runs from Feb. 13 until Feb. 21, with general adult admission on sale for $12, $7 for Children ages 7-12 and seniors 62 or older and free for children 6 years or younger.
