Toyota’s 2015 CAS Display to Feature 2016 Tacoma, Specialty Vehicles
Get ready to feast your eyes on some incredible vehicles starting next week. The beginning of the 2015 Chicago Auto Show (CAS) is just around the corner, and Toyota has given us a hint of what we can expect from its display in the Windy City this year.
First and foremost (and completely expected), the 2016 Tacoma will be hanging out for the world to see, just a month after its debut at the Detroit Auto Show. The Tacoma has long hung onto the title of best-selling mid-size pickup truck here in the US, and with its redesign for 2016, it’s clear that the truck plans to hold onto its crown in spite of new competition popping up all over the place.
But the Tacoma isn’t the only impressive Toyota vehicle we can expect to see at this year’s CAS. The FT-1 Concept Car—by now a familiar feature to auto show-goers—will be there, and attendees will be able to take a virtual drive in a specially-designed simulator. Additionally, the 2015 Toyota Sienna SpongeBob edition will be there, much to the delight of both children and parents. Finally, Toyota will have a custom-designed Highlander on display, which features an aquatic-themed wrap to celebrate Chicago’s Shedd Aquarium—the city’s most-attended cultural attraction.
Other displays from Toyota at CAS include B.B. King’s guitar and jacket (from the Camry commercial); a historic vehicle display featuring an FJ25, a 1967 2000GT, and the GTP Car #99; and two Toyota concept vehicles, the FV2 and i-ROAD.

Finally, parents and teens (and everyone in between) will get a lesson on safe driving thanks to the new TeenDrive365 Oculus Rift distracted driving simulator. Here, drivers will learn how to avoid distractions and become safer behind the wheel once they leave the show.
