DHS says consumers can get a real glimpse into that future of self-driving at this year's Chicago Automotive Trade Association "Chicago Auto Show".

Of over 1000 new vehicles on display at this year's Chicago Auto Show, a vast majority will include some version of a self-steering, accelerating and braking (within a lane) technology.

These features which can dramatically reduce driver fatigue and improve driving safety are available in CARS & TRUCKS which are currently or will be for sale in the next few months.

Gas Electric Hybrid vehicles, including the plug in charging type, are on the march again in the wake of "Dieselgate."

For the "Real Feel Behind the Wheel" go vertical at Camp Jeep and Mercedes AMG, peel out at Fiat Chrysler and tow 13,000 pounds at the RAM indoor driving tracks.

Get shaken up in Ford's driving simulator. Find your Jedi warrior self next to the Nissan Star Wars X-Wing Rogue. Puzzle masters can attempt assembling a mini-fied version of the Lego Batmobile at the Chevrolet display.

For the hungry/ thirsty there are snack / beverage choices aplenty.

TWITTER-ers can follow the hashtag #CAS17, for the latest exhibit news or to share their Chicago Auto Show experiences.

2017 Chicago Auto Show MOBILE APP available for Android and Apple devices.
