The 2023 Houston Auto Show opened to the public on Wednesday with new offerings and showcases from the top car manufacturers in the world. 

On display at NRG Center this week are the latest U.S. model lineups from Chevy, Ford, Honda and other automakers. Some of the most eye-catching cars on the showroom floor include the new 2023 Chevy Corvette Z06, trimmed thoroughly in Arctic White and carbon fiber, and the fully electric Ford Mustang Mach-E. 

Also on offer this week are a bevy of ride-and-drive events where guests can get behind the wheel of new-model vehicles for spins around courses set up on the convention grounds. Vehicles available for test drives and rides include the Jeep Gladiator Rubicon, Jeep Grand Cherokee 4x3e and Dodge Challenger. Drivers must have a valid driver’s license, provide proof of insurance and meet age requirements, which vary by manufacturer.   

Visitors should be sure to check out the many electric vehicles available. Battery-powered trucks and cars soaked up much of the limelight at 2022’s Houston, though gas-powered behemoths like the Chevy Suburban Premier also sparked an unsurprising amount of interest from Texas auto enthusiasts.

General admission tickets to the event are on sale at The event runs from Wednesday, January 25 through Sunday, January 29. Tickets are $20, and the convention floor is open from 10 a.m. through 8 p.m. CT on weekdays and Saturday. On Sunday the show will open at 10 a.m. and close at 6 p.m. Tickets are also available for purchase at the NRG Center. The box office opens 15 minutes prior to doors opening.
