The highly anticipated annual event runs from January 1st through the 5th and will feature more than 400 vehicles. All kinds will be on display including alternative-fuel vehicles, classics, crossovers, and exotics from 36 different auto makers.
The popular Ride & Drive events return this year, bigger and better than ever! More than 75 vehicles from brands like Buick, Lincoln, Nissan, Toyota, Chevrolet, and Dodge (just to name a few), are bringing out their best for the public to test drive. Jeep will also have an indoor ride & drive that will put their vehicles to the test on Jeep Trail Rated terrains.
Looking for something a bit more exotic? Check out the 15,000 square foot Exotics Vault where Bentleys, Lamborghinis, Maseratis, Aston Martins, Ferraris and more will be on display in all their glorious perfection. Perhaps something more practical? There will be plenty of electric and hybrid vehicles to showcase green technology and fuel alternatives, along with more affordable options for future buyers. It's also the 50th Anniversary of Mustangs. Come celebrate the iconic Mustang and see Mustangs from nearly ever era, including a 1965 Emberglo Convertible and a 1969 Mach 1.
January 3rd is Electric Vehicle Day and there will be plenty of manufacturers on hand to provide information and answer questions regarding sustainable energy. January 5th is Ford Family Day, so bring the kids and spend the day with Spiderman, Thor, and Ronald McDonald. There will be lots of cars from popular television shows for the kids to check out, as well as other car related activities to keep the young ones entertained. Kids will also have a chance to meet professional race car driver Elliot Skeer. On Ford Family Day, kids 12 and under will get in free with a paid adult admission.
The auto show isn't just about cars, however. Head over to the GEICO Motorcycle Pavilion and check out the military tribute bike designed by Paul Teutul, Jr. from the hit TV show "American Chopper." There will be other custom bikes on display as well.
