2017 Chicago Auto Show

The Chicago Auto Show (CAS) has a long and storied past. Held at Chicago's sprawling McCormick Place convention center, the modern show spans over 1 million square feet. With such a vast showcase, automakers can bring their full line of vehicles. Even though McCormick Place is a superb venue, the CAS typically has far fewer new vehicle introductions than the NAIAS (Detroit Auto Show). Nonetheless, for the public, the CAS is probably the best show to see the entire vehicle lineup of every major manufacturer.

Auto shows lie at the intersection of car shopping, enthusiasm and entertainment. New car shows provide a rare opportunity to see the latest new offerings and concept cars without the pressure of the sales experience. The controlled environments allow the automakers to display their vehicle in the best possible light. Often, the auto show itself transcends the vehicles, offering showgoers celebrity appearances, activities, and trinkets. By contrast, classic car shows and meets allow current owners and fans to appreciate and celebrate historic, popular and unusual cars.

At Velocity, we cover the most important auto shows, new and old. We track the introduction of new vehicles, and capture a photographic record of the most significant vehicles displayed.
