Thanks for sharing>
Chicago Auto Show puts DC to shame. Being a "Brooklyn Boy" I just may take a ride to NYC in April and check out the 2012 SRT.

Re: 2011 Chicago Auto Show Jeep display. Lots of pics

Wow! Awesome pictures, thanks for sharing them.

I was at the Pittsburgh Auto Show this past weekend, and they didn't even have a Summit there to look, let alone an off road trail. The best we had was two Overlands, and one with saddle interior was roped off. The other was Mineral Gray w/ the lighter interior and had a pretty noticeable blue-ish tint on the drivers seat from everyone getting in/out with jeans on.

Awesome photos! Love the Explorer test drive! HA! And thanks for the Inferno Red Limited photos - that's my baby on order.

I'm definitely going to have to head down there this week!

Great picks, JTS but.....wow.....this one.....LMFAO. A business associate was visiting from Europe and wanted to go to the show. Literally he laughed out loud at this Explorer display. What should make this thoroughly embarrassing for Ford is the fact that the paid show reps repeatedly reminded the crowd of its capabilities, the truck of the year award and that it was made in Chicago....talk about making a mountain out of a mole hill, my lawn mower could tackle this. I've bought several capable Ford SUVs over the years but this is.....um.....

Re: 2011 Chicago Auto Show Jeep display. Lots of pics

Yeah that was pretty unbelievable!! Whoever at Ford was in charge of the Ford displays at the Chicago autoshow should be fired on the spot. In the end it doesnt really matter to me since I could careless about the Explorer, but just re-assured me even more so that the Jeep is what I want. Nice job Ford lol

Re: 2011 Chicago Auto Show Jeep display. Lots of pics

Not to get way off topic but I looked at the new Explorer pretty much side by side with the WK2 at our county fair this fall and the best way I could describe the Explorer was "fragile". Everything about it feels under engineered. I'm sure it will be fine as a people mover for soccer moms but it's far from a capable SUV.

I did the same comparison a few years back between the Touareg and the MDX. The Acura just seemed "dainty" compared to the mass and presence of the Touareg.
