The 2023 Houston Auto Show opened to the public on Wednesday with new offerings and showcases from the world’s top automakers.

This week, the NRG Center is showcasing the latest US model lines from Chevy, Ford, Honda and other automakers. Some of the most eye-catching cars in the showroom are the new 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06, thoroughly trimmed in arctic white and carbon fiber, and the all-electric Ford Mustang Mach-E.

Also on offer this week is a variety of ride-and-drive events where guests can get behind the wheel of new vehicle models for laps around the courses set up at the convention center. Vehicles available for test drives and drives include the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon, the Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x3e and the Dodge Challenger. Drivers must hold a valid driver’s license, provide proof of insurance and meet age requirements, which vary by manufacturer.

Visitors should definitely check out the many electric vehicles available. Battery-powered trucks and cars took the spotlight in Houston in 2022, although gas-powered behemoths like the Chevy Suburban Premier also drew unsurprisingly high interest from Texas auto enthusiasts.

General admission tickets to the event are available at HoustonAutoShow.com. The event will take place from Wednesday 25th January to Sunday 29th January. Tickets are $20 and the convention floor is open weekdays and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. CT. On Sunday the show opens at 10am and ends at 6pm. Tickets are also available at the NRG Center. The cash desk opens 15 minutes before admission.
