2019 is another huge year for trucks.
From tomorrow, February 7 to Tuesday, February 18, the 2019 Chicago Auto Show will run in the Windy City. While this year’s show is undoubtedly a huge deal for trucks, there’s a wide range of car reveals going on as well.
Front and center among all the confirmed reveals are the new heavy duty trucks from Ford, General Motors and Ram. Ford will bring the updated 2020 F-Series Super Duty, while General Motors will have both the 2020 Chevy Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD. Before those actually go on sale, though, Ram will beat them to the punch with their 2019 HD lineup later this spring.

Then there’s the midsize truck segment. The Toyota Tacoma has long been the kingpin in this segment. To that end, Toyota brought a facelifted 2020 Toyota Tacoma to the Chicago Auto Show. Don’t expect radical changes here, but the automaker did make some quality of life upgrades that should keep the truck on its game against its competition. That’s not all, though: They also introduced a new Sequoia TRD Pro and a new RAV4 TRD Off-Road model.
What about cars?
Volkswagen teased a new Jetta GLI to complement the all-new, seventh-generation model. Like the current Mk7.5 Volkswagen GTI, the new Jetta will get a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine.
Other car reveals on the floor at Chicago this year include the redesigned Subaru Legacy and the Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition, as well as the Chrysler Pacifica and Dodge Grand Caravan 35th Anniversary Editions. That’s to say nothing of the ‘Sublime’ Charger and Challengers FCA is also bringing to the show — you definitely won’t miss those.
Lexus will bring the LC 500 Inspiration Series and the NX Black Line, while Nissan has the Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition. Land Rover will take the Chicago Auto Show as its opportunity to show the new Range Rover Evoque to U.S. consumers.
On February 7, Alfa Romeo introduced its 4C Spider Italia special edition. It’s going to be rare – only 15 will be hand-built in Modena, Italy.
