2016 Chicago Auto Show Part 1

The Windy City Welcomes You!

opening' Fog machines whirred and spotlights sent beams of presentation. Nissan prepared everyone at their party with food, music, and the perfect atmosphere to debut the Armada! IMG_2545 Nissan swears that the day of full sized SUV's are far from over. The Armada is equipped with a 390-horsepower 5.6-liter Endurance V-8 engine IMG_3540 Chevrolet released the 1LE package for the new Camaro, and for the first time, you can get the package with a V6 engine. IMG_6776 Mazda MX-5  Speedster concept IMG_3246 Even Chewbacca showed up for the Chicago Auto Show! Wow... That's just amazing. IMG_2766 Nissan wanted to show off their capabilities at making a functional concept vehicle. So they took an extreme route and put the Pathfinder Winter Warrior up to show the snow conquering ability of tank treads! IMG_3170 The Infiniti Q50 has a new 208-horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, the first 4 banger in an Infiniti Sports sedan, as well as 300-horsepower and 400-horsepower versions of a 3.0-liter twin turbocharged V6. IMG_3996 Toyota was ready to show off their new Rav4  to everyone they possibly could. A whole course was set up to provide an example of the complete redesign and every single improvement they tirelessly etched into the vehicles capabilities. IMG_3384 Toyota put a rocking bridge to set example of hill descent control. On this part of the ride they would climb up the bridge, then release the gas and brakes. The software will provide 3 seconds of staying in place then it will start rolling back. A safety feature that we find to be extremely useful. IMG_4342 Bentley Continental GT, showed off at the Super Car Gallery! IMG_4191 Mitsubishi threw out one of their last lines to get anyone to notice them at CAS2016. While 2017 is the plan for everyone else, they put on display the 2015 Lancer Evolution Final Edition. It's not every day that we can witness the end of the legendary Evolution's life.
