This year marks the 108th edition of the world famous Chicago Auto Show - a show has been held more times than any other auto show in North America. Since its initial debut in 1901, the Chicago Auto Show has been held every February at McCormick Place Convention Complex in historic Chicago, Illinois. Each year it continues to be one of the most-attended auto shows in the world.

Since 1935 the show has been presented by The Chicago Automobile Trade Association (CATA), the largest and oldest organization of metropolitan automobile dealerships in the United States. More than 1 million people attend this Chicago Car Show every year. The 2016 show will take place from February 13 through the 21. Press days begin on February 11.

The auto show is known for many things, but most vehicle manufacturers are impressed with the vast amount of exhibit space available to them. They use this space to their advantage to attract consumers. Foreign or domestic, you'll find information on virtually every vehicle available at the 2016 Show, including some exciting luxury cars from Jaguar. This year the automaker will have models of their XF, F-Type and XJ on the floor for consumers to check out. They'll also be debuting the 2017 XE and the 2017 F-PACE at the show.

What surprises are in store for the 2016 Chicago Auto Show? You'll have to stop by and check it out in order to see all the revelations that automakers have for the crowds this year, but with more than 1 million square feet of usable space, you can bet there will be some big reveals! 2016 exhibits will include:

The new Jaguar F-Type Convertible and Coupe extends its dynamic capabilities and performance with the addition of all-wheel drive. The base model is equipped with a 340-horsepower, 3.0-liter V-6 engine. You can choose from a manual or automatic transmission and the vehicle is rear-wheel drive. This car was built for speed with a short-throw gear lever, closely-spaced ratios and pedals that are perfectly placed for heel-and-toe changes.

You'll be amazed at the newest Jaguar XF luxury sedan. It is part of the second generation of XF cars and offers more cabin space, better proportions and a beautifully streamlined interior. Buyers have their choice of two supercharged V-6 engines boasting 340- and 380-horsepower setups. They'll have the choice between rear-wheel or all-wheel drive as well. The 2016 Jaguar XF is equipped with the automaker's most comprehensive package of driver assistance, advanced performance and infotainment technologies.

Perhaps you'd be more interested in Jaguar's flagship full-size sedan - the 2016 Jaguar XJ. This year the car has received enhanced entertainment and infotainment systems, an updated exterior design and all-new driver assistance features. Depending on the trim level that you select, the 2016 XJ comes equipped with either a 3.0-liter V-6 engine or either of two versions of Jaguar's 5.0-liter V-8. All three engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The 2017 Jaguar XE will be debuting at the Chicago Auto Show this year. It will be the compact sedan's first time being displayed in the windy city. The 2017 XE will arrive at dealerships in the U.S. later this spring. The base model XE is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that pumps out 240-horsepower. There is also a 2.0-liter diesel engine available. All available engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and come in rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is available on certain trim levels.

Also debuting at the Auto Show will be the 2017 Jaguar F-PACE. The luxury sport utility vehicle offers a choice of three engines - a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder diesel that puts out 180-horsepower or a 3.0-liter supercharged V-6 that can be ordered in either the 340-horsepower or 380-horsepower version. All F-PACE models are equipped with all-wheel drive and come with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Along with Jaguar's lightweight aluminum construction the F-PACE also features a magnesium cross-car beam, a composite tailgate and a front-end carrier to allow for outstanding driving dynamics.
