An impressive lineup of all new or redesigned vehicles for 2015 is scheduled to appear at the DFW Auto Show.

For 33 years, the DFW Auto Show has been the tool for consumers who are researching and refining the new vehicles that are on their shopping lists. This year, the doors to the Dallas Convention Center will open March 25-29 with an offering of more than 650,000 square feet of vehicles showcasing the latest in cutting edge design, technology and fuel economy.

“I've been going to the Show since its inception when it was held at Market Hall and the ‘Cars were the Stars,’” said Don Herring Jr., 2015 DFW Auto Show chairman.

“Over the years different manufacturers have come and gone, many concept cars have wowed visitors, but the excitement and atmosphere of the Show has always been the best part. When 400,000 people come to see the latest models at a Show that includes almost every manufacturer and takes up almost all of the Dallas Convention Center, there is nothing else like it,” he said.

An impressive lineup of all new or redesigned vehicles for 2015 is scheduled to appear at the DFW Auto Show this year including: Acura TLX; Audi A3, S3 and Q3; BMW i8; Chevrolet Colorado, Trax and City Express; Chrysler 300; Ford Expedition, Mustang, F-150 and Focus; GMC Canyon; Honda CR-V and Fit; Hyundai Genesis; Land Rover Discovery Sport; Lexus RC F and NX Hybrid; Lincoln MKC; Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG Coupe, S65 Sedan AMG and AMG GT S; MINI Hardtop John Cooper Works; Nissan Murano; Porsche Macan; RAM 1500 Laramie Limited; Subaru Legacy, Outback and WRX/WRX STI; and Toyota Camry.     

Some manufacturers are even getting a heard start on next year by spotlighting their 2016s including: the Texas debut of the Nissan Titan; Nissan Black Edition GT-R; Acura ILX, MDX and RDX: Audi A6 and A7; Buick Cascada, Cadillac ATS V Coupe, Chevrolet Volt, Fiat 500X, Ford Explorer, and Mazda CX5 Grand Touring and M6G Grand Touring. In addition, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor will be making its Dallas debut!

Aston Martin also will be spotlighting the One-77, one of only 77 in the world and the first of three to be allowed in the United States. In addition, the DFW Auto Show is pleased to announce that Alfa Romeo will be a highlighted exhibitor this year.

Returning for the second consecutive year will be the indoor RAM Trucks Ride & Drive where professional drivers will steer participants through an interactive adventure zone in a 2015 RAM 1500. The outdoor Ride & Drive Friday-Sunday will feature more than 60 vehicles from Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC Trucks; Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep and RAM; Ford, Kia, Mazda and Toyota to choose from for test drives through the streets of downtown Dallas.

This year, the DFW Auto Show is proud to once again be joining forces with the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) for yet another “Fuel Up North Texas” event. Not only will DFW Auto Show attendees receive $1 off a $12 admission for one donated canned good, but the Dallas Fort Worth Metropolitan New Car Dealers Association (DFW NCDA) dealer members are being challenged to collect food from their employees, families and customers.
