As competition heats up in the automotive industry, so, too, does the opportunity widen to compare models on display on the grounds of the 2021 Denver Auto Show, which opens Wednesday at Elitch Gardens.
While Jeep celebrates its entry into the world of three-row SUVs with its new Grand Wagoneer, Wagoneer, and Grand Cherokee L, it must also prepare for a new rival, the Ford Bronco four-door, against the long-popular Jeep Wrangler Unlimited four-door.
Ford’s been without a Bronco since 1996 and for the past 15 years has watched Jeep sell thousands of Wrangler Unlimiteds. So the Dearborn boys went back to the drawing board, got busy, and created, first, the small Bronco Sport and, now, the big, four-door Bronco.
Take a look at the Wrangler Unlimited; then another glance at the Bronco First Edition 4-door. It’s a sales race in the making.
Mid-September seems ideal for an outdoor auto show, and Denver is a perfect setting, with a backdrop of the Rocky Mountains.
To stage the show outdoors, and in the fall, was decided upon after postponement of the 2020 show and the normal springtime show of 2021 due to Covid precautions.
Hours for the Denver Auto Show are 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 19. Admission prices are $15 for adults, $9 for children 6 to 12, and kids younger than 6 are admitted free.
Preceding the start of the car show will be the 12th annual Denver Auto Show Preview Gala on Tuesday evening. It will feature this year the inaugural Colorado Automotive Hall of Fame dinner at 5:30 p.m. in the Maroon Bells Pavilion at Elitch Gardens, just outside the auto show floor.
The news and editorial staffs of The Denver Post had no role in this post’s preparation.
