Since its debut in 1901, the Chicago Auto Show has become the longest running auto exposition on the continent, showcasing an impressive roster of the world’s greatest car brands and most iconic vehicles. This year, we rolled up with our Pro2 3D scanner to bring the show highlights to you via an immersive Matterport 3D experience. Buckle up for an up-close look at some of this year’s most anticipated vehicles and exhibits spanning over 1 million feet of show floor.
Get Behind the Wheel
The best part of any car show is getting to sit in the driver’s seat of some of the world’s most amazing automobiles. Strap on your VR goggles to imagine the wind in your hair and the sun in your face as you kick the tires on these vehicular masterpieces.
- The Dodge Ram 5500 is a commercial-grade tow rig boasting a 6.4L HEMI® V8 gasoline engine that offers up to 429 pound-feet of torque and produces best-in-class 370 horsepower. That impressive power also comes with “Fuel Saver Technology”, which deactivates four cylinders when eight are not necessary, such as when you’re cruising or on downhill stretches.
- The Hyundai Sonata was ranked the fifth most popular midsize car. This model features 185 horsepower, a 2.4L four-cylinder engine and class-leading interior volume.
Looking for an offroad adventure? The Toyota 4Runner is an all-terrain vehicle featuring oversized TRD FOX high-performance shocks with rear remote reservoirs and TRD-tuned front springs that will carry you over any terrain.
