Attention car aficionados, The Orange County International Auto Show is racing into the Anaheim Convention Center in Southern California, Thursday, September 28th through Sunday, October 1st.
The OC Auto Show is a family friendly event will offer guests the opportunity to see more than 600 new model vehicles. They will have the opportunity to get an up-close look at the latest cars, trucks, crossovers, SUVs, and mini vans. From the Toyota FT-1 Concept to the McLaren 570S, the auto show will feature vehicles from nearly 35 manufacturers, 100-plus test drives, ultra-high-end exotics, an off-road test track, alternative fuel options, fun for the little ones and more!
We are super excited to have the opportunity to check out hundreds of new models (my son’s favorite past time), with the hopes to even sit in an awesome new McLauren, his absolute favorite car. I’m sure it will be almost impossible to tear him away from checking out the engines, sitting in the driver’s seat of every model that is unlocked as he just LOVES that new car smell.
New models set to turn heads on the show floor include the 2018 Hyundai Accent, Infinite Q50 Concept, Jeep Quicksand Concept, 2018 Kia Stinger, 2018 Lincoln Navigator, 2018 Ford Ecosport, 2018 Nissan Leaf, Alfa Romeo Stelvio Ram Powerwagon, Volvo XV60 T8 plug-in hybrid and more. I think this is his ultimate dream come true!!!
This year they’ve added the opportunity to drive more than 100 new vehicles from 15 manufactures including Acura, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge Fiat, Ford, Honda, Jeep, KIA, Lexus, Mazda, Nissan, Ram, Toyota and Volkswagen. And, if you don’t want to go out and test drive, simulate the experience in the Dodge Viper.
Back by popular demand, Camp Jeep® Anaheim returns to the Orange County International Auto Show! My hubby liked getting a chance to drive with a professional 4×4 driver as they went on an off-road test track in a collection of new Jeep® vehicles. This year, this interactive experience includes the Wrangler Unlimited, Wrangler Rubicon, Cherokee Trailhawk and Grand Cherokee. The rugged test track includes an 18-ft. high, 35-degree hill climb up the iconic Jeep® Mountain; teetering, extreme three-wheeling across an 8-ft. high, 50-ft long Trail Rated Pass; and adrenaline-inducing terrain that simulates fallen logs!
Let the kids get involved in the fun with the Camp Jeep® Anaheim Kids Test Track, as well as a climbing wall.
Our favorite area of the auto show: The Exotic Gallery. This year, get a chance to see a multi-million dollar showcase of exotic vehicles – a collection of masterpieces from the automotive world including the latest from Ferrari, Lamborghini, McLaren, Porsche and Bentley.
The kids will have fun participating in the OC Auto Show Scavenger Hunt where they’re on the search for displays with special passes to collect stamps from the manufactures for the chance to win prizes at the Activities Center.
If you’re hungry, plan on hanging around to sample some of the delicious bites from local Food Truck Vendors that will be parked right outside the convention center.
