Unusual Paint Hues at the 2022 Chicago Auto Show, 2022 Auto Colors

Unusual Paint Hues at the 2022 Chicago Auto Show

Auto shows around the globe were dealt a huge blow by the COVID-19 pandemic, but the Chicago Auto Show (Consumer Guide’s “hometown” auto show) fared better than most of them. The 2020 edition of the show happened in February 2020—less than a month before the coronavirus hit the United States in earnest and lockdowns began, making it the last “normal” big-league auto show. For 2021, the Chicago Automobile Trade Association (the organization that produces the Chicago Auto Show) was able to work with state and local authorities to pull off a special indoor/outdoor edition of the show in mid-July. For 2022, the show returns to its traditional February time slot. In fact, it’s going on as we type this—the show runs through February 21 at Chicago’s McCormick Place convention center.

Ford took the wraps off a special-edition Bronco at the 2022 Chicago Auto Show, but if you aren’t already a Bronco reservation holder, you probably won’t be able to buy one new.

The 2022 Ford Bronco Everglades special edition starts with the Bronco’s off-road-focused Sasquatch Package and gets several unique features—key among them factory-installed air-intake snorkel, WARN-brand winch, and exclusive wheels—on top of that.

2022 Nissan Frontier Concepts

2022 Chicago Auto Show

At the 2022 Chicago Auto Show, Nissan is unveiling a trio of pickup-truck concepts based on its redesigned-for-2022 Frontier midsize pickup. As concept vehicles go, these are pretty down-to-earth machines—they’re all based on the regular-production 2022 Frontier, with the addition of readily available Nissan Accessories components and aftermarket accessories, as well as a few custom one-off pieces and body graphics.

2022 Auto Show Schedule, 2022 American Auto Show Schedule

After a turbulent couple of years which included the cancellation—and in some cases last-minute cancellation—of nearly every major North American auto show, 2022 is beginning to look like a return to auto-show normalcy.
