ORLANDO, Fla. -

Looking for something to do after your Thanksgiving feast? The Central Florida Auto show brings 2014 model cars through Sunday at the Orange County Convention Center.

From simulators to actually getting the chance to drive Jeep's all new 2014 lineup, the autoshow allows people to take cars for a test drive.

"People that come to show can see what it's like firsthand to drive an Ecoboost engine," said Audrey Morris of Ford.

If you're into Jeeps, they'll take you through a course to show you what the SUVs can do.

"We're gonna go through the stump pile and check the maneuverability through the stump," said Steve Lorton of Jeep. "We've got a ground clearance discipline and then of course we have the traction mountain. We're 18 feet in the air and 35 degrees up and down both ways."

The cars featured are the latest and greatest from companies, like the Corvette Stingray.

"Base price is about $55,000," said James Bell of General Motors. "If you want to step it up a bit there's better handling packages, better brake package."

The car show will run through Sunday. Hours on Thursday are noon to 9 p.m., Friday-Saturday from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
