Most of the big automakes own a lot of different car companies.I've learned alot from reading these forums and all of you are experts! So with that in mind, I was wondering about auto makers that partner for one reason or another.
For example, I know about Ford and Lincoln/Mercury;
Chevy and GMC (even though I understand GM makes all those other cars) I meant more of almost identical vehicles that simply have a different nameplate on them;
Nissan and Infinity;
Toyota and Lexus, (and didn't Toyota partner with Pontiac on the Vibe/Matrix?);
But isn't there a connection between Ford and Volvo or Land Rover; GM and Hummer, you know what I'm saying?
Anybody know all the vehicles that have been spawn of different big auto makers getting "in bed" together?
(This will also be helpful to me as I go on my venture of buying a new vehicle next year)
Ford owns alot and so does GM. Ford owns Mazda, volvo, Jaguar, Aston Martin, and some others.
GM owns Hummer, and a bunch of others.
Just go to their websites and you will see all their brands. Sometimes automakes work together to make cars. So expensive for R&D that they sometimes share technology. For example the Dodge Stealth and Mitsubishi VR4 were basically the same car. Many other cars were joint ventures. Nothing new.
