Ford at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show
Just over a month ago, we took a minute to enjoy some of the finest offerings found at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, where the 2017 Ford GT made its memorable debut. In the weeks since, Ford has taken its latest models to the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, and the results have been no less impressive. To put it simply, Ford cleaned up. Let’s take a quick look at what got people talking about Ford at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, leading the the Blue Oval taking top honors in several categories.
Best All-New Production Vehicle: Ford GT
We were in love with the Ford GT in Detroit, and it would appear that most in Chicago agreed. With 38 percent of the overall vote, the GT easily bested its competition, and likely was the star of the whole show. Adorned in eye-catching Performance Blue and rumored to achieve up to 600 screaming horsepower, the GT is truly something to behold. And, since it uses a full-carbon-fiber construction and body panels, it dropped the jaws of those of us who enjoy cutting-edge technology and engineering as well. All told, this wasn’t an enormous surprise for Ford’s all-new supercar.
Best Overall Exhibit: Ford
Of course, when you have the benefit of the best new production vehicle as your centerpiece, you’re likely to turn some heads. However, there was much more to Ford’s showcase than just the GT. It also featured “Hank the Robot” as the tour guide, a lineup of vehicles such as the new Ford Raptor and the Focus RS, and interesting display items such as the Mustang Dynamometer and a mini-F150 track for younger Ford fans. Oh, and there was one other vehicle that had people talking…
Vehicle I’d Most Like to Have in my Driveway: Ford Mustang GT350
No, this isn’t an award that we made up. This is a real life award, and it’s one that the Mustang GT350 beat out the Bugatti Veyron–you know, that costs over $1,000,000–to win. It was a narrow victory for Ford, but it was also probably the most exciting and surprising of all the others.
