Just thought I'd let everyone know that the 2014 Baltimore Auto Show kickoffs today. The show will run through the weekend ending on Sunday. (February 6th – February 9th). Like usual it takes place at the Baltimore Convention Center. You will be able to see and get into new 2014 and 2015 model vehicles for a variety of auto manufacturers. If you are looking into buying a new car, it would be a good place to attend so you can see all the cars in one place. Checkout some of the vehicles at the show in the past.
Additionally there will be plug-in electric vehicles and green cars showcased as well as some exotic cars. At the 2013 Baltimore Auto Show there were not as many so I'm not what the Italian car situation will be like. (Yeah, people go mainly to see Italian cars.) The DuPont Registry Live will have ultra-high end and exotic cars on display though. Some concept cars will be at the show as well.
You will also be able to test drives vehicles from General Motors and Chrysler. Here are the cars that you will be able to test drive at the Baltimore Auto Show;
• Cadillac – Cadillac CTS Sedan, CTS Sedan Performance, CTS Sedan Luxury, CTS-V Coupe, SRX Performance, XTS Platinum, ATS Luxury and Escalade Platinum
• Chevrolet, Buick, GMC – Chevrolet Spark, Sonic, Volt, Cruze, Malibu, Impala, Camaro, Equinox, Traverse and Silverado; Buick Encore, Regal and LaCrosse; and GMC Terrain, Acadia and Sierra
• The Chrysler Drive – Chrysler 300, Chrysler Town & Country, Jeep Cherokee, Jeep Grand Cherokee Diesel, Fiat 500, Fiat 500L, Dodge Charger, Dodge Dart, Dodge Durango and Ram 1500
This year the Baltimore Auto Show is bringing back the Tjin Edition RoadShow display from the car designer Neil Tjin. The Tijin Edition RoadShow showcases his SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) vehicles and all the custom rides that have been features at the SEMA show in Las Vegas.
Back at the Auto Show in 2011 there was a large custom car section on the upper levels. Again there will be a Custom Car Zone to see several aftermarket vehicles, tuners, customs, hot rods and exotics, brought to by the OC Car Show (as in Ocean City.)
One change this year is the Baltimore Auto Show app. You can visit iTunes or Google Play to download the new Motor Trend Auto Shows free mobile App for the iPhone or Android. Use the App to buy tickets, map your route, view participating manufacturers and get vehicle information at a glance.
Unfortunately this year I forgot to request Complimentary Baltimore Auto Show tickets. Next year I will try to remember.
Keep in mind that when you purchase a ticket you get a Free 1-year subscription to Motor Trend magazine. You can receive a one-year print or digital subscription to Motor Trend magazine (a $12 value) just for attending, courtesy of the Maryland Automobile Dealers Association. Simply complete the subscription card at the auto show, or online, and receive 12 issues for the rest of the year.
