It’s time to start your spring car shopping.
We have long been fans of auto shows for the ability to shop without pressure from salesmen, the ability to cross-shop different models and at the Dallas Fort Worth Auto Show, you can take a test drive. The DFW Auto Show takes place March 27th-31st at the Hutchison Convention Center. We have partnered with the show again this year to bring you the best that this great show has to offer car buyers. You can follow along on our social channels on March 27th to get a sneak peek at the show and keep reading to learn how to win tickets!
This is the Year of the Family Adventure Vehicle
After watching the boys off-road and spend their weekends hunting and fishing, we wondered, why they should have all the fun? Automakers thought so, too! So now there are more family adventure SUVs than ever. From large all wheel drive and 4 wheel drive three-row SUVs to compact SUVs that can go from the city to the mountains, to mid-sized SUVs with room for all your gear and kids, the choices are endless.
Toyota has some of the best on display in the TRD Pro line, which stands for Toyota Racing Development. Think of “racing” as off-road rally racing, and you got it: From the Tundra and Tacoma pickup trucks to the 4Runner SUV–perfect for families–there are plenty of choices for families to get off road and back to nature.
Trucks, Trucks, and More Trucks
Trucks are even bigger and better (and can tow a lot more) this year and we’re up for that. The DFW Auto Show has trucks on display to fit every need, from off-roading to impressive towing power–and everything in between.
See the Best the Luxury Market Has to Offer
From the classic luxe brands such as Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, and Lincoln, to exotics like Lamborghini, Aston Martin and Ferrari at the show’s luxury lane. Stroll among the best of the best and see what the rest of the car market will be striving for in the future and start your own luxury car dreaming.
