  • CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Auto Show's popular Ride-N-Drive feature will be the biggest in the show's history with more than 10 brands participating.

    "There is simply no better way to evaluate a vehicle than to get behind the wheel and take it out on the road," says Dan Sanders, chairman of the Cleveland Auto Show. "The Cleveland Auto Show pioneered the Ride-N-Drive concept, which has become one of the most popular facets of the Show."

    The Cleveland Auto Show is able to offer Ride-N-Drive events due to the large size of the I-X Center. Most cities simply don't have a facility or grounds large enough to host these kinds of events.

    Chrysler, Dodge, Toyota, Scion, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Subaru, Hyundai and Kia are already scheduled to offer Ride-N-Drive during the 2013 show.

    In addition, Camp Jeep, one of the show's most popular indoor ride attractions will be back this year. This indoor event, hosted by skilled Jeep drivers, allows show attendees to experience the trail-rated capabilities of Jeep vehicles. The course traverses a number of obstacles, to showcase the vehicle's articulation, ground clearance, maneuverability and traction. While on the course, riders will learn how to negotiate off-road challenges such as steep grades, rocky trails and log crossings.

    New for the 2013 Cleveland Auto Show is the "Millionaires Row" display, which features a slew of vehicles all worth in excess of $200,000.

    The Cleveland Auto Show runs from Saturday, Feb. 23 through Sunday, March 3. The event will feature more than 1,000 new vehicles, family friendly entertainment, celebrity guests and loads more.
