As State Fair of Texas organizers put it, the Texas Auto Show is “an engaging environment where manufacturers can interact with consumers through displays and experiences.”
It’s also an ideal way to kick back, relax and walk through the mostly carpeted show areas while seeing how you fit into the latest car models.
Either way, the Texas Auto Show is again one of the featured attractions at the State Fair of Texas, which starts Friday. The auto show has been a staple of the fair since 1913.
Last year, approximately 90% of fairgoers and 2.16 million people visited the auto show, according to the fair’s annual report.
The auto show will feature the latest models in three areas — the Automobile Building, the Centennial Building and the Truck Zone. The lineup includes several other sport and luxury vehicles.
Guests can browse the lineups, get into the vehicles or buy them. Visitors also can participate in interactives and live entertainment throughout the various auto displays.
Wednesday’s media day included announcements from top manufacturers on their 2024 models.
- Ford will show off its F-150 model. According to Ford, the truck has a new design, including its Pro Access Tailgate for additional access and utility.
- Toyota is debuting its Tundra 1794 Limited Edition, assembled in San Antonio. The Limited Edition features a custom full-leather interior that was a collaboration with the Saddleback Leather Co.
- Kia’s new all-electric EV9 sport-utility vehicle will be available. The EV9 has three seating rows, a dual-display cockpit and full digital instrumentation.
