Of course, you'll also see vehicles on display from every major automaker in the world! First launched in 1901, the Chicago Auto Show is the largest auto show in North America. The show has been produced by The Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA) since 1935. CATA is the oldest and largest metropolitan automobile dealer organization in the U.S.

This is the 108th addition of the Chicago Auto Show, and it will be held in its usual venue - McCormick Place Convention Center. The show runs from February 13 through February 12, and uses more than 1 million square feet of space inside the complex. This year's exhibits will include experimental and concept cars, multiple new vehicle introductions and a wide range of foreign and domestic vehicles.

If you're looking for what's new with Land Rover, you've come to the right place! The luxury automaker will have five vehicles at the show including the Discovery Sport, Range Rover, Range Rover Sport, Range Rover Evoque and they'll be debuting the 2016 Range Rover Evoque Convertible. Land Rover is known for their innovations in the luxury 4X4 market, and they'll surely have some surprises up their sleeve for visitors of this year's Chicago Auto Show.

You'll see the 2016 Land Rover Discovery Sport at this year's show. It is a premium compact sport utility vehicle that's offered in three trim levels. All models deliver the refined performance of a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 240-horsepower. The engine is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and comes standard with all-wheel drive. The state-of-the-art body shell features lightweight aluminum and ultra-high-strength steel. With seating for seven and agile long-travel suspension, this is the perfect luxury vehicle for commuters or families.

And don't miss the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover - equipped with your choice of two 5.0-liter V8 engines - either the naturally-aspirated engine that delivers 375-horsepower or the supercharged adaptation that pumps out 510-horsepower. Both options are paired with a standard eight-speed transmission. This vehicle was created for all-terrain conditions with its ability to wade through water up to 35.4 inches deep, a maximum towing capacity of more than 7,700 pounds and permanent 4WD for ideal stability and traction.

The Land Rover Range Rover Evoque will also be on display at this year's Chicago Auto Show. This is a small luxury compact SUV with exterior and interior updates for 2016. This vehicle is powered by a 2-liter direct-injected turbocharged four-cylinder engine that is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission and a full-time intelligent 4WD system. The Range Rover Evoque can take on water depths up to 19.7 inches, and this is the first Jaguar Land Rover vehicle to have all-LED adaptive headlights. The front bumper, grille design choices and air intakes have all been updated to create a more muscular appearance as well.

This year you'll be able to catch the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Sport on the showroom floor at this Chicago Car Show too. You'll be impressed with the Range Rover Sport SVR model's ability to accelerate from 0-60 in just 4.5 seconds! The electronically limited top speed for this SUV is a whopping 162 miles per hour. This midsize luxury SUV is available in SE, HSE, HST SC V8 and Autobiography models as well. Four-wheel drive is standard on all models and an eight-speed automatic transmission, hill start assist, hill descent control and a terrain response system come standard too.

Making its debut at the auto show this year is the 2016 Land Rover Range Rover Evoque Convertible. This model will surely attract a lot of attention. It is the first convertible SUV ever to join the Range Rover lineup. The 240-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and 4WD is standard. Of course, the vehicle has been re-engineered to accommodate the stowed roof mechanism, but it retains the sophisticated design proportions of its coupe and five-door siblings.
