Disclosure: Travel and hotel stay was provided to me by Nissan. However, all opinions are my own.
The Nation’s Largest Auto Show is open and in full affect!
Yes it is huge (1 million square-foot), yes it is insane in the best way, and yes there are cars, trucks, SUVs and more cars, trucks, and SUVs!
The manufacturers brought in approximately 1000 of their newest and most fab models for consumers to checkout and even test drive in some cases.
This years CAS has something for everyone, including puppies, a robot, a bit of off-roading, tons of supercars, vintage vehicles, tons of delicious food and so much more.
If you haven’t had a chance to attend yet, no worries you still have time.

Subaru Loves Pets Display
Subaru bringing in a huge doggy park filled with Rescue puppies is definitely a great way to tug at the heart strings of the auto show consumers.
They are free to run around and interact with their admirers throughout the duration of the show. Additionally, if you are looking to adopt one, applications are being accepted. So make sure you stop by! You never know what could happen! ❤️
Note: They have tags that you can make for your own dog, and all donations will go to the rescue that is there at the time.
One Million Mile Frontier
Who isn’t curious about ANY vehicle that reaches 1 million miles! The infamous 2007 Million Mile Frontier, owned by Brian Murphy, is on display in the Nissan section of the show.
How cool is this?!?!?! Well, it’s so enough that Nissan presented Brian with keys to a 2020 Nissan Frontier at this years show.
- Original clutch lasted 801,000 miles
- Her nickname is M’Lady
- She is still going strong
- He racked up the miles working 13-hour days as a part-time delivery driver
Note: The 2020 Nissan Frontier is not yet available for purchase.
The Chicago Auto Show is full of fun and exciting things to do! Everywhere you look you will find some sort of interactive activity. Outside of the puppy park, The Dodge Challenger SRT Demon Simulator and the Stinger Racing Experience seemed to be two of the most popular. Each time I walked by, there was a line of excited fans waiting to test out their racing skills.
Believe it or not, these are just a few of many that will keep you occupied when you are not checking out all of the latest vehicles.
The MACH-E display in the Ford section is a whole vibe! The blue lightening next to the SUVs stunning white exterior is a sight to see!
When the vehicle was first revealed there was a major uproar! There were/are a lot of people who were either on the fence or not happy with an all-electric SUV being stamped with an iconic name like Mustang. Yes, I was one of the people on the fence!
Well after checking it out and learning more about it at CAS it has grown on me. Yep, I have crossed over to the other side. LOL! Since the traditional Mustang isn’t going anywhere, and it is more of an extension to the Mustang family I am here for it! Anddd…if other manufacturers like Porche and Lambo can do it, why not????
Note: Blog post soon to come! I will provide more details on why I am here for the MACH-E!
Hank The Robot
WAIT! Don’t leave the Ford section just yet. After you checkout the MACH-E head on over and say hi to Hank the Robot and do the robot dance! The interact robin is super fun and hilarious!
“Break it down! Break it down! Robot dance…robot it!” 😂😂😂
