The Nashville International Auto Show kicks off today and our Caliber Collision team is here to provide an inside look on all things innovative and automotive. The event runs October 18-20 at the Music City Center in Nashville and will feature some of the newest rides, coolest tech and exciting news coming to the industry within the next year. As new-car connoisseurs, our teammates are here to provide a look under the hood into what you can expect at the 2019 show.
THE NUTS AND BOLTS:
The 2020-Model Auto Show is open October 18–19 from 10 AM–9 PM and October 20 from 10 AM–5 PM. Tickets are available online for $10 for adults, $5 for senior citizens and military and free for children 12 and under. Parking can be found all around the center with first-come-first-serve access to the main garage on 6th Ave. and Demonbreun St.
TAKE IT FOR A SPIN:
Two major auto makers—FCA and Chevrolet—will be hosting test drive opportunities for some of their newest rides. This year, FCA will let you take several of its vehicles for a spin including the Chrysler Pacifica, Fiat 124 Spider, Jeep Gladiator, RAM 1500 Limited and others. In the next station, Chevrolet will let you hit the road in one of its new Cruze, Malibu, Bolt EV, Equinox, Traverse, Camaro, Colorado and Silverado models. If you’re in the market for a new ride, or just want to change it up for a test run, check out the two stations on Demonbreun St., right outside the show’s entrance.
EXOTIC AND EXTRAVAGANT:
For those with a need for speed—and style—the most renowned European manufacturers will bring their swankiest sports cars to the Exotic Gallery. For even more automotive affluence, you can check out the duPont REGISTRY. Together, these two exhibits feature luxurious brands such as Audi, Porsche, Jaguar, BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Land Rover, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Maserati and McLaren. If you fancy a look, be sure to check them out in the left side of the center.
LITTLE RIDES FOR THE LITTLE GUYS:
For those not quite old enough to test out the real-sized rides, the Citgo Kids’ Test Track is making a return this year. Kids between the ages of 3 and 9 can test their skills in some of the latest electric-powered children’s vehicles.
If you head over to the show this weekend, we’d love to hear about it. Let us know which car caught your eye on our Facebook page.
