State Fair of Texas: Time to enjoy the rides

Chevrolet Colorado displayed at Texas Auto Show


A visit to the State Fair of Texas isn’t complete without a tour of the Texas Auto Show, and this year there’s a generous helping of debuts to feast your eyes upon.

For many in these parts, it’s all about the trucks and SUVs. Ram, Chevrolet, Ford, Toyota, Jeep and Nissan all have rugged and luxurious new 2020 editions on show, gleaming under the sun in the Truck Zone or the lights of the Automobile Building.

Truck-maker Ram has chosen the fair to introduce three new Texas-sized editions; the Ram 1500 Limited Black Edition along with a Night Edition for the Heavy Duty Big Horn and Laramie. Chevrolet unveils its Rally and Midnight special editions for the 1500 Silverado, while Nissan is asking visitors to say howdy to its updated Titan.

The Challenger SRT, in Hellcat Redeye Widebody form, is the quickest and most powerful muscle car, says Dodge.


Fans of off-road capable SUVs will enjoy a much-anticipated diesel version of the Jeep Wrangler, the EcoDiesel, and the trail-ready Toyota 4Runner Venture Edition. At the fatter end of the utility wedge, there’s the seriously luxurious Ford Expedition, now with King Ranch trim.

The Texas Auto Show has something for every taste, however, not just behemoth trucks and SUVs. There are around 400 different models to check out, get into and makes notes on.

Automakers really go to town here in Dallas and besides the vehicles themselves, there’s a range of interactive displays, entertaining games and photo opportunities to be had. All the fun of the fair – in automotive form.

The Texas Auto Show is taking place at the State Fair of Texas, Fair Park, Dallas, until October 20.
