Check out our gallery of eye-catching colors seen at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.

Chicago Auto ShowTraditional auto shows are facing plenty of challenges these days, as manufacturer priorities shift and the new-vehicle marketplace evolves. One thing has stayed the same, though: an auto show offers an unparalleled opportunity to compare competitive cars back-to-back, and to “tire-kick” a broad range of vehicles in a short amount of time. For an auto journalist, these shows are also a great way to spot industry trends large and small.

What is EcoBoost?

The high-performance Taurus SHO was one of the first Ford vehicles to employ an EcoBoost engine.

There is a lot to be said for good automotive branding, especially good engine branding. One of the better recent efforts in this regard is Chrysler’s resurrection of the Hemi name, as applied to a new family of V8 engines that debuted for 2003.

2020 Ford Bronco

Ford isn’t quite ready to take the wraps off its forthcoming Bronco just yet, but the company issued this teaser photo that reveals a rugged-looking boxy profile, a high-riding stance, and what looks like a rear-mounted spare tire.

Ford Motor Company today unveiled its plans to replace more than 75 percent of its model lineup by 2020, and is aiming to have the “freshest” product roster in the North American market by that time. The manufacturer will focus heavily on trucks, SUVs, and hybrid vehicles in the next 24 months. More pure-electric vehicles are slated to follow starting in 2020, with six battery electric vehicles (BEVs) planned for introduction by 2022.

New Car Colors

Check out our gallery of the most eye-catching colors at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show.

CAS 2018 logoThere’s no better place than an auto show to see a broad range of brand-new vehicles up close, and there’s also no better place to check out the latest trends in factory paint-color offerings. One of our Chicago Auto Show traditions is to scour the show floor on the hunt for interesting new or recently introduced colors—“double-take” hues that are more eye-catching that the usual whites, silvers, blacks, and grays (and, for that matter, straightforward fire-engine reds).

1971 Plymouth Duster 340

Do we have your attention yet? This 1971 Plymouth Duster 340 is finished in Curious Yellow paint that seemed to glow on the show floor. High Impact indeed!

For the past nine years, the Muscle Car and Corvette Nationals has taken over the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois, on the weekend before Thanksgiving. For American performance-car fanatics, this unparalleled show has become an unmissable season tradition every bit as important as grandma’s turkey and stuffing.
