We'll be at the Chicago Auto Show for the next few days, looking forward to cornering as many product planners and pickup engineers to squeeze them for information. From what we've heard, there won't be much truck news at this show but that doesn't mean we won't be ready just in case anyone tries to throw in a surprise or two.
Of special note this year, this will be the 20th anniversary of Ford's SVT program. The official launch of SVT came during the 1992 Chicago Auto Show with the unveiling of the 1993 SVT Mustang Cobra and breakout SVT F-150 Lightning. Now, we're told, Ford will be celebrating the event by showing off some of its past and present vehicles, as well as giving us a look to the future with the reveal of the 2013 Shelby GT500 convertible. But no new Lightning.
We'll be digging for news and looking for interesting vehicles on the show floor and posting updates. More reports to follow. Happy 20th Birthday SVT.
