2011 Chicago Auto Show: New Model Preview

The 2011 Chicago Auto Show is not due to open to the public until February 11, but the media has a two-day preview starting today. However, Autoblog as always is on the ball with these sort of things, and have already taken a closer look at what new models will be on show at the event.

The first model that we have for you is an update to the Dodge Challenger, which was recently voted at one of the most popular coupes. There are not many changes to this model, but it does come in Envy Green and will have two variants, one of which is a new R/T Classic. This comes with a 5.7-liter engine and can push out 372-horsepower. If you feel that more power is needed, then the Challenger SRT8 is the answer, as its 6.4-liter engine produces an amazing 470hp, more details here.

Chrysler will also be showing off the new 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8, and will be all about its engine. The 6.4-liter powerplant can produce 465 horsepower, and has a 0-60 time of just over four seconds and a top speed of 175mph. This car certainly means business; Autoblog has all the details.

The new Buick Regal will be on show as well, and will have its new eAssist system to show off. It is this technology that will allow the vehicle to achieve 26mpg city and 37 miles per gallon highway. AutoWeek has more on this.

There is no denying that the Chigago Auto Show will not be a patch on the recent New York Auto Show; it’s as if the top auto brands and press are waiting for the next big one, which will be at Geneva.
