Chrysler will be bringing their multi-brand track that features an acceleration lane, slalom and brake zone. Plus Toyota will be letting Hybrid enthusiasts try out their plug-in drive course.
If the above doesn’t get your heart racing there will also be 6 outdoor test-drive opportunities. You can register to test-drive at the Cadillac, Ford, Hyundai, Kia, Nissan and Subaru exhibits. Other interactive exhibits that will be drawing crowds at the show will be Mazda’s raceway riding simulator, Mini’s Green screen driving simulator and Toyota’s Augmented reality program.
With nearly a thousand vehicles on display, the breadth and variety of vehicles is world class. Attendees will be able to see everything from concept cars to SUVs and everything in between. Over 40 manufactures will be exhibiting so there is sure to be something for everyone.
