The Chicago Auto Show will place Feb. 13-21 at McCormick Place.
North America's largest auto show, the 2016 Chicago Auto Show spans more than 1 million square feet of floor space of the McCormick Place complex and displays multiple world and North American introductions and a
complete range of domestic and imported passenger cars, trucks, sport-utility vehicles, minivans and concept cars.
Admission is $12 for adults, $7 for seniors age 62 and older as well as children ages 7-12, and free for children 0-6.
In addition to the public show, First Look for Charity will also take place. The black-tie affair will be Friday, Feb. 12, 7-11 p.m. First Look for Charity is expected to raise more than $2 million annually to benefit 18 local charities. Tickets are $250 each, and attendees can direct the proceeds from their purchase to benefit any or all of the participating charities. There will also be two vehicle giveaways: a 2016 Lincoln MKX Black Label and a 2016 Jeep Renegade.
The show has an all-new website and launched an accompanying smartphone app in January designed to enhance the attendee experience and bring the nation's largest auto show to life across the globe.
The 2016 version of ChicagoAutoShow.com will have, among other things, historical videos and social-media integration that is purportedly smoother than in years past.
The website's "Vehicles on Display" section adds real-time inventory from Chicagoland's new-car dealers, provided by DriveChicago.com . This allows site visitors to sift through more than 40,000 new cars directly on ChicagoAutoShow.com as they are browsing their favorite vehicles.
The show's updated app is designed to be a digital companion for the attendee, allowing them to request more information and get instant updates on the daily schedule, among other things.
