Giving automotive fans front-of-the-line access to activations, prizes, promotions, speakers and special events, the 2018 CANADIAN INTERNATIONAL AUTOSHOW takes place at Metro Toronto Convention Centre between Friday, February 16 to February 25, 2018.
Major events this year include HotWheels‘ 50th Anniversary, Porsche‘s 70th Anniversary, plus a chance to see up-close the world’s fastest car in-production, the Koenigsegg Agera RS Supercar.
Luxury Carmakers Tesla, Maserati, Mini, Mercedes, BMW, Lamborghini and Rolls-Royce plus several favourites like Ford, Acura, Honda and more unveil their exciting new lineups. The latter just was awarded Canadian Car of the Year for their 2018 Honda Accord.
Getting tons of buzz was FORD‘s unveiling of their centerpiece, the 2019 Mustang Bullitt. The car commemorates the 50th anniversary of iconic Steve McQueen-starring Film Bullitt. We were thrilled to be among the first to preview the gorgeous Mustang Bullitt, the third edition of the car,mirrored closely to the original in green paint, with a dark grille and signature fuel cap. It has attitude, it has presence. It will be available to the public in manual transmission.
Other highlights on the Ford roster include the 2019 Ford Edge ST and the 2019 Ford Ranger Pickup Truck.
We spoke with Gonzalo Contreras, Product Marketing Manager from Ford Canada who tells us more about the hotly-buzzed 2019 Ford Edge ST, due for a summer 2019 release. “It is built right here at our plant in Oakville, Ontario which is creating Canadian jobs and is fantastic.”. “Our Ford Performance Team has fine-tuned it to have 335 horsepower and 380 lbs of torque per foot.”. It comes complete with a cutting-edge Rotary Shifter (versus a stick) which includes a Sport mode for those who like performance and drive a little more aggressively.
