Automakers use the Chicago Auto Show to make connections with consumers, and this year's show is no different. Truckmakers are using it to show off their latest products. We saw just about every model of the all-new 2019 Ram 1500, 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and 2019 Ford Ranger on the show floor. Besides seeing the newest vehicle models, visitors to the Chicago show also can take a variety of rides. If you're in the Chicago area between now and Feb. 19, we highly recommend stopping by.

The Chicago Auto Show runs through Feb. 19 at McCormick Place, 2301 S. Lake Shore Drive. Show hours are 10 a.m. to 10p.m. through Feb. 18 and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Feb. 19. Admission is $13 for adults, $7 for seniors 62 and older and kids ages 7-12, and free for kids 6 and younger accompanied by a paying adult family member. Tickets are available online at ChicagoAutoShow.com or at the show.

I love the old off road game, that was so much fun to play when I was a kid. We used to wait in line just to play that one. Good write up.

Here's the pickup truck news we uncovered at show:
‘Ford Unveils 2019 Transit Connect Wagon‘

Really?

$13 to look at hideous cars pretending to be trucks in the murder capital of America? I'll pass.

If I was there I would love looking at the F-150 Eco-Boost
no other truck would get my attention
I would stand next to the Eco-Boost on display and proudly proclaim : "I Own An Eco-Boost"

My Eco-Boost is so quiet and smooth I don't even hear or feel it's running, it's like a quiet rocket ship and it's amazing how it sips less gas and booost the most power and acceleration ever
When my co-workers ask me how my Eco-Boost is running I always tell them "faster than your truck"
ha-ha-ha !~

@Ecoboost Rules--- YOU WOULD STAND NEXT TO YOUR ECOTWIST BECAUSE THE TIMING CHAIN FAILED AND YOU CAN'T DRIVE THE JUNK.QUIET AND SMOOTH WHEN THEY WON'T RUN.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Looked like a motley show of concept vans and a nissan 370 on snow tracks. What the?!

Years ago I went to the Chicago Auto show. At that time they had 2 Maybachs on display, a Ford concept Bronco that was similar to the original Bronco, and a concept Chevy Nomad which was a retro 57. Great auto show and lots to see.

THE IDIOTS USING MY USERNAME NAME AS USUAL. GARBAGE MOTORS IS PURE JUNK TAKE THAT WHO EVER IS USING MY USERNAME. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA SILLY GARBAGE MOTORS FANS FORDS ARE FOR REAL MEN AND GARBAGE MOTORS TRUCKS ARE FOR WOMENS AND QUEERS.

Wow, there are some mentally ill people on this website.

The people that get on here and hump and grunt for their favorite brand are the most simple-minded eunuchs I have ever seen.

Calm down steers, it's a truck company, not your cousin at the family reunion.

Ford is setting them selves up for bankruptcy. Pure junk. Thanks for all that taxpayer money to build junk engines that eat timing chains!!!! Good luck collecting on that loan suckers!

Unfortunately, I've been forced to miss both international auto shows convenient to me--both rather large shows--making me miss any chance of an early view of any of the new trucks.
