American Cars

The American Workhorses

The big three American automakers rank Ford as number one, followed by General Motors, with Chrysler coming in third. These cars generally have plenty of power for fast freeway driving in the United States. They can easily perform every day of hard driving with a good level of safety, comfort and control. Many American cars, SUVs and trucks are bigger to handle for the diverse Americans that work hard and play hard
with their vehicles.

They can handle tasks like transporting six children and two adults to a soccer game or towing a trailer full of wood for a contractor or rancher without a whimper. Some makes and models are extremely reliable, while others are built cheaply and tend to feel like it. Some of these cars have recurring unreliable parts that the manufacturers are slow to change.


Many American cars are sold at a discount with attractive financing. Overall, American cars have always been known for their stylish looks that keep up with the times and change every year. Some are still very affordable and sexy such as the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro.


The American Car Companies were started with funding from the stock market. Their goal was to keep increasing the stock price and dividends every quarter. Many American auto company's CEO's were rewarded
with stock options and encouraged to make quick profits to keep the Wall Street investors happy.


This worked well when there was no outside competition. Ford is the current leader and has imported some of their European models to the U.S. to compete on the economy market. American automakers are working hard to design and build more reliable and fuel efficient cars.


Kelley Blue Book rated the Ford Fusion second in the mid-size category for resale value, stating that it's not only high-tech and looks good, but the hybrid version gets 47 miles to the gallon. If you're looking for a reliable workhorse, the American large trucks are great for hard working commercial and personal use and the luxury trucks come equipped with beautiful, rich leather and wood interiors.
