2020 Volvo XC40 T5 AWD Inscription
Class: Premium Subcompact Crossover
Miles driven: 375
Fuel used: 15.4 gallons
Although not a debut (that occurring last month), one of the more notable vehicles on display at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show is the first crossover from the Genesis luxury marque. Called the GV80, it’s a midsize premium crossover due on sale this summer as a 2021 model.
Volkswagen took the wraps off of a freshened 2021 version of its “plus-size” three-row midsize SUV at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show. The 2021 Volkswagen Atlas gets updated styling, new driver assistance features, and the availability of 4Motion all-wheel drive on both V6 and 4-cylinder models.
Along with their “Trail Edition” badges and expected off-road equipment, the special Tacoma, Tundra, and 4Runner Toyota introduced at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show each boast some added storage features.
All three Trail Editions are based on SR5 trim levels, offered with 2WD or 4WD, and are available in Army Green, Cement (gray), Midnight Black, and Super White, along with black badging and black seats with tan stitching. The Tacoma comes as a Double Cab extended cab, while the Tundra is a Crew Max crew cab.
Chrysler’s popular Pacifica minivan is set to get even more popular with the addition of new features introduced at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show.
Although not the only significant change, certainly the most notable is the availability of AWD — making Pacifica only the second current minivan offering it, joining the Toyota Sienna. While it “officially” comes in on the 2021 models to be introduced in the fourth quarter of this year, Chrysler says it will be available a few months earlier on special 2020 model-year Pacifica AWD Launch Editions.
If you’re looking at the photo above and thinking, “Boy, that 2020 Nissan Frontier sure doesn’t look much different than it did last year,” you’d be right; the changes aren’t visible — at least, not unless you open the hood. Which is what Nissan did just prior to the 2020 Chicago Auto Show.
