Orange County International Auto Show Has New, Exciting Vehicles

The Orange County International Auto Show opened yesterday afternoon and runs through Sunday at the Anaheim Convention Center across from Disneyland. Though it's a consumer show, without World and North American debuts, there are a lot of new cars to see, some have just gone on sale and others not yet. The Ferrari FF, (above) FF as in the Ferrari Four. Four as in four-wheel drive and four seats. The V12 FF was introduced in Geneva in March.

The Lexus LFA is sold out, all 500 gone at a starting MSRP of $375,000.

The value star of the show is the 2013 Subaru XV CrossTrek starting at $21,995 and shown here, the Premium edition at $27,000 and change.

The Lexus LS460 F Sport sedan arrives in November and we're guessing at around $80,000, based on the fact that the 2012 LS 460 starts at around $68,000.                  

The 2014 Chevy Impala, introduced in New York in April, hits showrooms in the Spring on next year.

Ford has made a huge investment in the OC show offering test drives of the C-Max hybrid and Focus EV and, in exchange for your opinion, you get a $10 food voucher. The 2013 Ford Fusion (above) is on display.

Lincoln is showing off their new MKZ sedan that starts at $35,925.

The 2013 Honda Accord, starts at $22,470 and is on the OC show floor.

Nissan has the all-new Sentra (above) and Pathfinder (below).

Kick the tires, check out all the vehicles and have fun test driving! Then give me your thoughts.
