The Pittsburgh Auto Show Recap: Fancy Cars, Lots of Fun

Car lovers from across the Pittsburgh area came together last month for the annual Pittsburgh Auto Show, which took place from February 15th to February 18th at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in the heart of the city.

Throughout the venue, automotive enthusiasts got the chance to check out a range of vehicles, including classic and brand-new vehicles. There were a range of exotic brands, too, including McLaren, Ferrari, and Lamborghini. Sponsors of the event included Ally and the Ronald McDonald House Charities, while the vendors spanned a wide range of industries, from locals like Fudge Farm and Pittsburgh Garage to those that stretch across the nation like AT&T and State Farm.

Along with these new vehicles, the show also highlighted the latest safety technologies available in the industry with Impaired Driving Demonstrations, which allowed attendees to see how dangerous driving distracted can be.

This event also coincided with the Dancing with the Cars charity event, which occurred this year on February 14. The Pittsburgh Auto Show’s 75th Diamond Anniversary was celebrated during the charity gala, allowing someone to go home with a $7,500 diamond necklace from Joden Jewelers. Overall, the charity raised $5,102,500 for the Pittsburgh Vintage Grand Prix Charities.

It’s never too early to start planning for next year’s event. Here at Shults Ford Harmarville, we hope to see all of you at the 2020 Pittsburgh Auto Show.

Every year, local car enthusiasts can go to experience some of the latest new models, along with iconic classics, on display at the Pittsburgh Auto Show. This year, the show will be held February 17-20 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

With Lincoln and Ford at the Pittsburgh Auto Show, the two automotive brands will have some of the latest models on display in an area in the center of the building. Lincoln will showcase the 2016 MKZ, along with the refreshed 2017 MKZ. Additionally, visitors can check out the 2016 MKX, 2016 Navigator, and the all-new 2017 Continental, Lincoln’s show-stopping flagship model.

As for Ford, the exact models they will be brining are not known, but we hope to see some of its latest vehicles and technology on display. Perhaps we’ll get to see the new autonomous technology that Ford had on display at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit last month.

One of the most anticipated parts of the Pittsburgh Auto Show is the annual Dancing With the Cars charity event. By purchasing a ticket to this evening event, you’ll not only get an exclusive view of the show, but you will also be supporting several local charities. This year’s dinner and dance will be held on February 16th, the night before the show officially opens.
