The leaves are falling in the Midwest and the days are getting shorter across the country, Yes, that means we’re getting closer and closer to the holiday season, but it also means the annual Los Angeles Auto Show is right around the corner. As always, the City of Angles will attract gearheads from all over the United States, and that means automakers big and small will be on hand to show them their latest cars, trucks and utility vehicles. According to the L.A. Auto Show’s website, it is “one of the most influential and best-attended auto shows globally and spans more than 1,000,000 square feet.”
We’ll have a crew of staff members live at the show to bring you all the latest reveals and news from the L.A. Auto Show.
What we expect to see this year
There’s often a heavy concentration of electrified debuts in L.A., and we expect to see our fair share of EVs again in 2023. We can’t yet be certain what automakers will unveil the biggest reveals, but a glance at the publicly displayed press conference schedule offers plenty of hints. Show organizers say there will be two dozen companies in the automotive and motorcycling industries present at the event.
Here are some of the cars, trucks and SUVs we’re expecting to see in person at the show:
