Our Top 5 At 2019 Chicago Auto Show

So, you attended the First Look For Charity Gala. Congrats you raised $2.8 million this year! You broke the record!! However, while you were enjoying being glamorous you may have missed some of the best parts of the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.

Here are our top 5 favorite things to do and see this year! Ram 1500 Multi Function Tailgate

1. Ram’s Truck Territory. A new test track this year. You can witness the power and comfort of the Ram Super Heavy Duty Trucks. Experience the raw power of these trucks. Also while you’re in the area be sure to the check the Ram 1500 new Multi Function Tailgate. Ok, so the new 2019 Ram 1500 has a lot more features than that, but that is our favorite new feature. 2020 Subaru Legacy

2. 2020 Subaru Legacy. This caught us by surprise. Everything about the all new Legacy had us wanting to get up close.  The 2020 Legacy is the seventh generation.  With improved horsepower in either the XT or Boxer engines.  Luxury interiors with optional Touring trims.  We can’t forget to mention the Driver Focus Distraction Mitigation system to keep you even safer.  With all the features you already love in the Subaru Legacy, you’ll want to check it out for yourself.

3. 2019 Kia Telluride. Experience not only one of the lushest interiors but also great handling. The Telluride test track does feature specially modified Tellurides built for the dessert and off road. However, once you ride in one, then you will probably want to ride in the Telluride over and over again.  Plus Kia will send you a video of your ride!

4. 2020 Ford Police Interceptor Hybrid. Not only does Ford have improvements for their Police Interceptors. They have also worked with the Chicago Mayor to reinvest back into Chicago. Spending $1 billion on their Chicago plant and putting more back into the community as well. You will see new Ford Police Interceptors on the streets in Chicago. With a vehicle built to help our officers do their jobs safely and effectively.

5. Camp Jeep. You knew it was going to be on our list. It almost always is. This is one of our reasons to the attend the Chicago Auto Show. I didn’t put it directly at the top, but we always recommend you experience it for yourself. This year the track is featuring a variety of 2019 Jeep Trailhawks and the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon. Plus, we have a 360° video to give you an even better view of what Jeeps are capable of doing.

P.S. Don’t fall for the hype.  You want to ride in a Trailhawk. I personally recommend the Trailhawk Compass.  While shooting our video, we caught everyone having the same comment that they are waiting to ride in the Wrangler! The only downside is the Wrangler is so smooth with that disconnecting sway-bar that you miss out on some of the fun.  Get bounced around in the Compass for the most intense ride.
