The Philly Auto Show is Coming

The Philadelphia Auto Show will be back in town January 27 to February 4 and it's bigger and better than ever! I remember my first time going to the Philly Auto Show, maybe 5 years ago and wondering why I didn't go sooner. It's a fun event for all ages, whether you're in the market for a vehicle, or just want to see what's new in the world of automobiles. Special highlights this year include an enhanced Super Cars Display and robust Exotic Vehicles Display. Check out Super Cars like the Bugatti Chiron, Bugatti Veyron and Ford GT, along with Exotics like the Aston Martin DB11, Ferrari 488 Spider, McLaren 720S and Rolls-Royce Phantom, just to name a few. 

You'll even have the chance to get close and personal with your favorite famous vehicles from shows you love like the Mystery Machine from “Scooby Doo,” Tow Mater, K.I.T.T. from “Knight Rider,” the “A-Team” Van and cars from the “Fast and the Furious” and “XXX” series. This is just a taste at what the 117th Edition of the Philly Auto Show has to offer.

Preproduction and Hot Production Models
For consumers who want to catch a glimpse of vehicles that will soon be available in dealerships across the region, the Philadelphia Auto Show is the perfect place to view the latest pre-production models. Examples include the 2019 Ram 1500, 2019 Ford Ranger, 2019 Lincoln Nautilus, 2019 Subaru Ascent, 2019 Volvo XC40, 2018 Jaguar E-PACE and 2018 Jeep Wrangler.

Attendees are also invited to visit with some of their favorite vehicles of yesteryear at one of the largest classic automobile displays in the country. Four distinct collections of classic cars will be on display courtesy of the Simeone Foundation Automotive Museum, Antique Automobile Club of America, Vintage Automobile Museum of New Jersey and the Classic Auto Mall. Examples include a 1933 Auburn V12 12-165 Speedster, 1938 Jaguar SS100 3.5L, 1953 Chevrolet Corvette, 1956 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Gull-Wing Coupe, 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge and 1970 Plymouth Superbird.

Ride-and-Drive Opportunities
Camp Jeep will return to the Philadelphia Auto Show for its sixth consecutive appearance and feature an interactive adventure zone where professional 4x4 drivers allow riders to experience a Jeep's on- and off-road capabilities inside the Pennsylvania Convention Center. Featured vehicles will include the Cherokee Trailhawk, all-new Wrangler Unlimited, Grand Cherokee Trailhawk, Renegade Trailhawk and Compass.

Guests will also get the opportunity to find what moves them at the 2018 Ride and Drive Zone. Located just outside the DUB display on the street level of the Convention Center, the Zone will offer test drives from Kia, BMW, Volkswagen, Toyota and Mazda. Details for each vehicle manufacturer vary and should be monitored at

DUB Show Tour 
Hosted by DUB magazine, the premier publication of the urban automotive lifestyle, this year’s DUB Live exhibit in Hall F will include 125,000 square feet of some of the best tricked-out rides, bikes and the latest in after-market excitement.
