Thoughts on the 2024 Chicago Autoshow

Recommended Posts

My son noticed we spent the bulk of our time at Ford. 

Stellantis skipping the show was a boon for Ford. The Wrangler driving course is always popular. This year they got everyone in Broncos instead. 

The GTD is gorgeous. 

I want a Switchgear. 

The Lightning Platinum Black shows fingerprints like mad. 

The Green/Gold appearance package on the Mach-E looks good in real life. 

The Mach-E Rally is wacky. 

The new Ranger looks great, especially Raptor, though the interior looks dated. 

The Explorer is underwhelming.


The Expedition is a dinosaur. 

No Lincoln!! Would have thought they’d have a Nautilus at least. 



I really like the new Landcruiser. I don’t see how it doesn’t just replace the 4Runner.

Lexus GX is pretty nice too.


Nee SantaFe is impressive. 

VW Bus is really nice too.


Honda Prologue and Acura ZDX look ok. Would hate to get a model based on a platform from another manufacturer that the brand doesn’t intend to use going forward. 

The “Chicago Drives Electric” area was popular too, and featured BEV from virtually all the manufacturers. Including Tesla. Was surprised to see Tesla participate. They had a Cybertruck there. It’s every bit as ugly in real life. 


The show seemed to be half the size it usually is. (Was only in one side of McCormick Place).
