Are you a car fanatic? Does the sound of a purring engine get your heart thumping and make your palms sweat with the urge to get behind the wheel? Believe us when we say—we get it.
For some people, driving is more than just a commute to work or the supermarket; it’s a sport and a hobby. Whether you love to customize vehicles and get the most out of performance or collect rare cars (if you can afford it) there’s a reason the automobile industry is a multi-billion dollar moneymaker.
The United States is home to one of the largest automotive markets in the world. From vehicle production to auto parts manufacturing, the U.S. is considered a central hub for the global automotive industry. And with each passing year, vehicle sales continue to soar as automotive manufacturers push the bar with new technology and innovative designs.
Whether you’re into BMW or a simple Ford is more of your forte, car manufacturers are always searching for the next “big hit” when it comes to makes and models. This involves taking risks and sometimes missing the mark in terms of sales or vehicle reliability. Unfortunately, not all of these new models are bad. It would be easy to jump to the conclusion that a car no one is purchasing is a dud, however many times the car is highly rated but it simply just didn’t resonate with consumers.
Why does this happen? Well, there are different factors to consider, but most of the time it’s due to manufacturers trying to outdo one another, which can turn off a potential buyer. For example, when the Cadillac tried to compete with BMW with the CTS and ATS models, it was such a far departure from their normal Cadillac offerings that drivers looked the other way.
