The 2017 Motor Trend International Auto Show pulls into the Baltimore Convention Center Thursday, February 9 through Sunday, February, 12 with over 500 new cars and trucks, including one-of-kind-supercars and custom creations – and kids 12 and under get in free!

The show is a must for anyone looking to find their new ride, with everything the industry has to offer in one place. With plenty of experts on site, visitors can take their time and get every feature and option explained in a no-pressure environment.

And there’s more to do than just kick the tires. Technology once found only on high-end models is now available on some of the most popular cars on the road. Visitors can check out advancements that make their ride safer and more convenient.

If they like what they see on the show floor, visitors can take to the streets of downtown Baltimore, and test drive the latest models from Chevy, Chrysler, Dodge, FIAT, Ford, Jeep, Ram, and Toyota.

The Show is also the place to see Motor Trend’s 2017 Car of the Year, the brand-new Chevrolet Bolt which the magazine says has “set a new benchmark for electric vehicles.”

And it wouldn’t be the true auto show experience without the chance to marvel at some of the finest and most exclusive machines on Earth. duPont Registry Live is bringing a collection of pricey and priceless rides including two McLarens, a Rolls Royce Dawn, Porsche GT3, 2018 Karma Revero and two Roush Stage 3 Mustangs.
