start from thebeginning

First staged in 1901, the Chicago Auto Show is the largest auto show in North America and has been held more times than any other auto exposition on the continent. This year marks the 110th edition of the Chicago Auto Show.

    On display at the 2001 Chicago Auto Show was the Cadillac Vizón concept that gave the public its first glimpse at the shape, razor-edged styling and size of the forthcoming 2004 SRX luxury sport-utility vehicle. A 300-hp Northstar 4.2-L V-8 was linked to a five-speed automatic transmission, and unique vertical gills on the side of the front fenders opened to cool the engine bay. Vizón 's four-seat leather upholstered interior featured a unique two-piece sunroof.
