This weekend, new cars, trucks, and SUVs will fill the Fresno Convention and Entertainment Center. The Central California Auto Show, happening Friday, Nov. 17 to Sunday, Nov. 19, is your chance to check out the latest and greatest in automobiles without having to deal with pushy sales people. And the best part? Admission is free.
“It’s a one-stop automobile utopia,” says Victoria Blackwell, communications director for the Central California Auto Show. “There will be over 15 different brands of vehicles to check out. Guests can fuel their passion for new looks and the latest technology.”
There will be hundreds of new 2018 models on display; Acura, Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Ford, GMC, Honda, Jaguar, Jeep, Land Rover, Lexus, Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Ram, Subaru, and Toyota are planning to take part in the show.
No salespeople, no pressure
I’ve been to the Central California Auto Show before and it really was a good time. I was able to sit inside the vehicles and get an idea of what’s on the market without having to visit a showroom.
“This is a no-hassle, no-sales event,” Blackwell says. “There will be brand experts on site to answer any questions about the vehicles they’re displaying; there will be no pressure to make any sales. They can direct you to local dealers if you wish to talk about a purchase.”
Vehicles from Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, Jeep, Ram, and Toyota will be available for test drives. You have to be 18 and over to drive one of the test vehicles.
“The unique thing about this auto show is that it’s essentially a new show every year,” Blackwell says. “It’s a good place to come and research the vehicles you are interested in purchasing.”
Attendees will also receive a free one-year subscription to Motor Trend magazine.
The Central California Auto Show is open Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m.-7 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
