The Best of the Chicago Auto Show – Part 1

Business, Design

This year’s Chicago Auto Show was big on unusual concept vehicles, ranging from a track-powered SUV to a futuristic car that calls on the driver to steer the car merely by leaning. But the show really showed the true colors of today’s auto industry by demonstrating how technology trickles from luxury brands to entry-level vehicles, especially in the safety arena.

Over the next few days, we’ll provide a glimpse of the latest and greatest from Chicago’s massive auto show. Click on the image below to see the newest technologies and vehicles, ranging from plug-ins and supercars to minivans and SUVs.

For the Chicago Auto Show, Nissan built three vehicles with heavy-duty snow tracks instead of standard wheels and tires. Called Winter Warriors, the vehicles were based on the company's Pathfinder, Murano, and Rogue crossovers. All three employed Dominator Tracks from American Track Truck Inc. measuring 48 inches long, 30 inches high, and 15 inches wide. The suspensions and wheel wells were modified to fit snow tracks, but the engines and transmissions were factory built. (Source: Design News)
