Visit the Dallas Fort Worth Auto Show this Weekend And Get a Little Wind Under Your Wings

Dallas Fort Worth Auto Show

Dallas Fort Worth Auto ShowIn the market for a new car? Or just dreaming of one?

The DFW Auto Show is the place to visit this weekend for both pressure-free shopping and test drives of more than a100 cars and trucks. We just spent a couple of days there and here are some of the must-see displays at the show.

Need a Truck? Doesn’t Everyone?

That might be the big theme of the year, not just in Texas, but everywhere. Experts are predicting that 2018 will see a huge demand for pick up trucks. Luckily, the Dallas Fort Worth Auto Show has plenty on display.

See the Lexus LC500 Black Panther

This car was on display in Detroit and Chicago and now, guests at the Dallas Fort Worth Auto show have an exclusive opportunity to see it in person and snap a photo. We love the glowing hood and Lexus emblem, but the claws on the side mirrors really make a statement.

Need a little Luxury In Your Life?

Who Doesn’t? This will be a big trend in the coming year; with tax rebates and a buoyant economy, experts are predicting that luxury will be bit. Lincoln is thinking this, too, with a new SUV called Nautilus. We love this color!

Meet the all new Toyota Avalon

Toyota’s top grade sedan has been redesigned from the ground up. We are excited by the leather seats, the Qi wireless phone charger, the hybrid option and the nicely sized V6 engine, but this is what we applauded: it will be Toyota will offer Apple Car Play and Android Auto for the first time. Yippeeee!

Send love notes to the Olympians in South Korea

Auto show guests can fill out a note, put it in this little cup, pop it into the Olympic themed RAV4 through the sunroof and Toyota will deliver them to the athletes.

If dreaming means getting off the grid and out of the city, the new Jeep Wrangler could be the ticket. While we love this custom version, the stock Wrangler is pretty awesome too.

And with warm weather just around the corner, this 4X4, or any car featured at the show, could be just what you need this spring!
