Houston Auto Show 2016 Recap

I had a blast a the 2016 Houston Auto Show. I attended in 2015, but didn’t get to take in nearly as many sights and sounds, drives and rides that I did this year. Even better, I got to hang out with amazing group of bloggers (organized by SheBuysCars):

One of my favorite things about the Houston Auto Show, as opposed to some of the others, is the sheer variety in vehicles shown – over 700 this year. The majority of the show hall is full of new vehicles, new announcements and concept vehicles from all of the top manufacturers. But in addition to that, there are also classic cars, ultra sports cars, accessory vendors, and even an ADA-wheelchair accessible conversion company.

Speaking of announcements, the blogger group was privy to a front-row unveiling of the GMC Sierra All Terrain X, a new, more aggressive off-road package for the GMC Sierra line.

After the unveiling, I was able to check out the Ride and Drive section of the auto show – where anyone (over the age of 18, I think), can get a guided drive in 40-some odd vehicles from over a dozen manufacturers. We chose a new 2016 Lincoln Navigator and drove around the block with a very nice Lincoln rep.

Make sure to put the 2017 Houston Auto Show on your calendars, April 5-9, 2017 (moved back because of the 2017 Super Bowl in Houston). But another exciting development is that the Houston Auto Show will be co-located with the Mecum Auto Auction.
