State Fair of Texas Opens This Weekend Including The Auto Show
Buckle up for the 2022 Texas Auto Show... The Press Conference lineup on Thursday included big announcements from a long list of top manufacturers. Can you believe it, since 1913, the auto show has been a big part of the State Fair of Texas. Whether you’re a diehard car fanatic or you just like to look around at the newest models, this part of the fair is the ultimate destination for all things automotive. Below are some of the highlights that you can see at this year's State Fair of Texas.
Chevrolet used the State Fair of Texas to showcase the redesigned Silverado HD pickup truck. In addition to the Silverado HD, Chevy also displayed the 2024 Silverado EV, the 2024 Equinox EV, and the 2024 Blazer EV. The new, 2023 Corvette Z06 is also on display.
“We’re thrilled to showcase the new Silverado HD for the first time at the State Fair of Texas," said Michael MacPhee, director of marketing for Chevy Trucks. “Texans rely on their trucks to work hard. We’ve designed the Silverado HD to be our customers’ favored choice for true truck capability.”
Unveiled at their plant in Kentucky earlier this week, Ford has brought the 2023 Ford F-Series Super Duty lineup to the State Fair of Texas. Redesigned inside and out, every Super Duty is built with unprecedented levels of work capability, ingenious new technology and a suite of cloud-based services for new levels of productivity.
In addition to the broadest range of engines in the class from 6.7-liter Power Stroke V8 gas engines to a 7.3-liter V8 with improved air intake and tuning, the 2023 Super Duty is the first pickup in the United States with embedded 5G capability.
Debuting in person for the first time during the Texas Auto Show, the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek takes the “return to rugged” theme of the new Pathfinder to a new level of capability with more power, off-road tuned suspension, increased ground clearance, and all-terrain tires.
Pathfinder helps owners take more adventurous journeys with the addition of an off-road-inspired Rock Creek grade, designed for drivers with the desire to venture away from the pavement.
Dodge Ram unveiled the new 2023 Ram 2500 Heavy Duty Rebel at the State Fair of Texas today. This new model expands the brand’s heavy-duty lineup and offers a unique and exceptional combination of off-road performance without sacrificing towing and payload capabilities. Also unveiled, the new Ram 1500 ‘Built to Serve’ Emergency Medical Service (EMS) model. This latest ‘Built to Serve’ model honors the frontline heroes who provide emergency medical services and save lives every day.
Production of the Ram 1500 ‘Built to Serve’ EMS model will begin at the Sterling Heights (Michigan) Assembly Plant in the fourth quarter of 2022. Fairgoers can also take a wild ride on the Ram TRX Thrill Ride at the 2022 State Fair of Texas – a test drive that’s Big Tex-sized, located right across from the Magnolia Beer Garden.
