General Motors Corporation
Super United States technology in car assembly is kept blazing and well alive by the dominance of General Motors Corporation (GMC) in the global car market. You might have noticed that the most distinguished car brands are coming from Europe, particularly Germany and France. For modern type sophisticated vehicles, Japanese brands are starting to make waves. But all these competition and natural economic bouts around the world have been weathered by the company.
As a carmaker, GMC is well known for its superior designs and innovations in car manufacturing. The brand's current status as the No.2 biggest selling car brand in the world, following the lead by Toyota, can attest to the wide recognition all over the world for the company. GMC may not be the market leader currently, but it had enjoyed that position for the longest time, being the top seller globally from the year 1931 until 2006, when the crown was snatched by the Japanese fierce rival.
Particularly, GMC has been loved by fanatics and buyers of sport-utility vehicles and light trucks. With the superior performance and quality of every GMC car, it is an accepted notion that when you buy any GMC vehicle, you are getting access to the latest and most reliable auto technology. To date, North Americans still have high regard for the home-grown car brand, as evidenced by the market's continued patronage despite overall car sale slump.
Based in Detroit, Michigan, GMC now manufactures and distributes its car models in as many as 33 nations all around the world. GMC now has a European centre in Zurich, Switzerland. It is the biggest and most patronized car assembly brand in China, which is just beginning to open up its doors to offshore car making investments.
GMC car models are known for sophistication and for environmental concern. Unlike all other car brands, GMC cars are perceived to be very environment friendly. As a matter of fact, the company is now poised to deliver and distribute many hybrid car models, which are designed, developed and made to be efficient by reducing gasoline consumption and significantly cutting carbon monoxide emissions.
GMC is one of the few car assemblers that invested in many years of product research and development for environmental impact reduction. Responsible manufacturing is very well practiced within GMC. Thus, it is evident in every GMC brand that superior care and focus is given to the tedious manufacturing of every GMC car.
To demonstrate GMC cars' superior performance, it would be noteworthy to underline GMC's auto racing feats. In the 1990s, the company's Oldsmobile Aurora engine car won in several car speed races for the small V-8 models. GMC's Cadillac V-Series has also gone to motor sports racing and has been preferred by more and more racers. Even in Europe, GMC cars for racing are very much active and are winning the races particularly in the United Kingdom's British Touring Car Championship series.
GMC as cars and as a company is truly among the pride of USA. With its dominance of the global car market for the longest time, it would take time before other offshore assemblers double or match its feat.
