Seattle previews Portland International Auto Show
The Seattle International Auto Show featured some but not all of the new vehicles that will be on display at the Portland International Auto Show in February.
For example, the Seattle show, which was held Nov. 14 to 16, included a new Willys Limited Edition version of the 2020 Jeep Wrangler. But Jeep is planning on bringing the even newer EcoDiesel version of the Wrangler to the Portland show. It comes with the same 3.0-liter diesel V6 found in the 2020 Ram 1500 pickup that is both more powerful and more fuel efficient than other available engines.
The Seattle show also included the completely redesigned 2020 Nissan Versa that will be coming to Portland. It starts at less than $15,000 and more versions will be available with more tech — included more safety features — than other subcompact cars.
Other vehicles that will be at both shows include Some of the vehicles that will be on display in both cities are the all-new 2020 Ford Explorer, the all-new 2020 Lincoln Corsair and the 2020 Toyota Supra.
The Seattle show also features a Great Outdoors display similar to but smaller than the one planned for the Portland show.
The 2020 Portland International Auto Show is scheduled for Feb. 20 to 23 at the Oregon Convention Center, 777 N.E. MLK, Portland. The 7th Annual Sneak Peek Charity Party is set for the evening of Feb. 19. For more information, visit https://portlandautoshow.com.
