We obsessively covered the 2015 Chicago Auto Show
In recent years, that phrase has sort of become a larger theme for the show – we certainly enjoy a more relaxed pace while covering Chicago. But that's not to say this isn't an important event. We see a lot of production cars here, including special editions and mid-cycle refreshes. And every now and then, something comes along and steals the show.
Still, it's not nearly as crazy as Detroit, or say, Geneva. But it's definitely a fun show to attend. See our full roster of Chicago coverage in the roundup, below. And take your time. No rush.
According to numerous reports, the 2017 Ford GT has been confirmed for production at Ford's factory in Markham, Ontario. In celebration, take a good, long look at the beautiful machine on the show floor at the Chicago Auto Show, now painted in a new shade called Liquid Silver with titanium-tinted racing stripes.
Acura is giving the RDX a refresh after just three years on the market. The front and rear feature sharper lines and LED lighting at both ends. There's a now a nine-speed automatic gearbox, and the 3.5-liter V6 has a little more power. Plus, the crossover is available with even more tech.
The Kia Trail'ster concept tries to give the Soul some offroad-ready looks, but the really interesting part is its hybrid all-wheel drive powertrain. It combines a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder up front and an electric power for the rear axle to make a total of 220 hp and 285 lb-ft.
