About the Chicago auto show

Chrysler is bringing a 1,015 sq.-ft. garage to the Chicago auto show. Inside the display, show-goers will find several Moparized vehicles, shelves of custom Mopar parts and accessories, and Mopar’s new line of standard and commercial-grade custom cabinetry and toolboxes designed to give your garage that Mopar look.

“Customization is king,” said Pietro Gorlier, president and CEO of Mopar, Chrysler Group LLC’s service, parts and customer-care brand. “At Mopar, we offer more than 500,000 quality-tested parts and accessories throughout the world. In Chicago, we want to give show-goers an idea of how they can personalize and accessorize some of our new vehicles and furnish their garage in full Mopar style.”

To get your customizing juices flowing, a slew of Moparized vehicles will be featured in the garage, including one of each of the following: 2013 SRT Viper, Dodge Dart, Fiat 500, Jeep Wrangler, Ram truck and Chrysler Town & Country.

In addition to these vehicles, parts, accessories and “Moparabilia,” both NHRA 2012 championship trophies won by Pro Stock driver Allen Johnson and Funny Car racer Jack Beckman will be highlighted in the display.

If you are a member of the Mopar fan club, make sure to check out the Mopar garage at the Chicago auto show.

The Chicago Auto Show is held every February at McCormick Place and bills itself as “The Nation’s Largest.” Pickup trucks traditionally have had a big showing in Chicago, as have green and small cars. This year marks the 105th Chicago Auto Show; press days are Feb. 7-8 while public days are Feb. 9-18.
