We're on our way to Cars.com's headquarters in Chicago to have a few meetings with the bosses and prep for the 2013 Chicago Auto Show, which is held in McCormick Place and open to the public Saturday-Feb. 18.
Promoted as one of the largest auto shows serving one of the largest populations in the U.S., the Chicago show always has been a place where different manufacturers can speak out a little louder and offer showgoers quite a few interactive opportunities.
Both Toyota and Chrysler will have massive displays to allow enthusiastic consumers a chance to get behind the wheel of one of their favorite cars, SUVs, crossovers, hybrids or trucks. And from what we understand, there should be some diesel news (unfortunately, only on the car side) and some Ram van news. Toyota also will be making a pretty big deal about the world debut of its 2014 Tundra, which hasn't been touched since its introduction in 2007.
PickupTrucks.com will be trying out some new technology that should allow you to watch the press events in real time (or very soon thereafter). Additionally, we'll also be directly involved with the Tundra's post-debut panel discussion as we moderate a closer look at the new Tundra with three of Toyota's key players in the full-size truck's development.
If we find more information we think you might like, we'll be sure to pass it along but keep your eyes open for our updates, several videos and any other stories we might find at the show.
