Auto Shows

Keep up with the newest pickup truck models and features unveiled at auto shows from coast to coast. We travel from the State Fair of Texas, with its wide-open displays and Lone Star-flavored styles, to the heart of the domestic market in Detroit; we check in on the cold winds of change that blow in Chicago and make stops in Vegas for the SEMA show, in Los Angeles for a taste of the alternative fuel world, and even occasionally in New York, where surprises have been known to happen.

 

 

 

Detroit (NAIAS)

 

The North American International Auto Show is the big daddy of auto shows, and some very important trucks (and cars) make their debut here. It’s one auto show you can’t afford to ignore.

Chicago

 

The City of Big Shoulders has traditionally been the launching ground for many a new truck -- it’s not called The City That Works for nothing. Join us here and get rid of your mid-winter blahs.

New York

 

This may seem like an unlikely spot for truck news, but you’d be surprised by what surfaces along the shores of the Hudson. It’s the last gasp of the auto show season, so don’t be left in the dark.

State Fair of Texas

 

This auto show offers 135,000 square feet of trucks, trucks and more trucks. There’s a definite Lone Star feel to it, and unlike most auto shows, most of the action takes place outdoors.

SEMA

 

This Las Vegas-based convention focuses on accessories, but we also see some truly tricked-out truck models. If you want wild and high-energy, you won’t want to miss these trucks.

Los Angeles

 

The L.A. auto show tends to focus on alternative-fuel solutions for trucks. We’ve already seen plenty of hybrids here, and the future promises glimpses of biodiesels, hydrogen, electric and more.
