A quick look at the 2014 Chicago Auto Show

Nissan debuted a pair of new vehicles in Chicago, one of which was a diesel-powered version of its Frontier pickup, the Frontier Diesel Runner. It’s based on the Frontier Desert Runner 4X2 but with a 2.8-liter, four-cylinder Cummins diesel.

The 2014 Chicago Auto Show opened Saturday at the city’s McCormick Place, 2301 S. Lake Shore Drive, and will continue to run through Feb. 17.

Billed as the nation’s oldest (it was first staged in 1901), the show will feature all the latest models plus a dazzling array of concepts to tease auto aficionados as to what manufacturers may be planning on springing on us in the future.

With the weather not expected to get over freezing temperatures, it’s a great place to spend a day wondering the two gigantic exhibition halls.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily except for the final day, when it opens at 10 a.m. and shuts down at 8 p.m.

For complete information on the show, including tickets, ticket discount opportunities, and directions, visit the show’s website.
