Whether you’re trying to stay up to date or just now learning about how most automakers are owned by other automakers, you’ve come to the right place to get it all straightened out when it comes to General Motors or GM for short. GM is synonymous with two main automakers; GMC because of the similarity in its name, and Chevrolet, the largest automaker GM owns. For more information about the cars made by each manufacturer, read on.
Chevrolet started in the early 1900s, and not quite as early as many other automakers, but it would quickly become one of the most enduring names in automobiles. Today you can expect to find familiar model names like the Silverado, Colorado, Malibu, Impala, Blazer, Camaro, Corvette, and a handful of younger names.
Acting as the brand Chevrolet fans might switch to after they move up in the world, GMC sells trucks and SUVs with a sense of executive flair. The Sierra 1500 pickup truck and the Yukon and Acadia SUVs are some of the most popular models from GMC.
Many of the people who buy Buick cars belong to an age group of parents whose children have already grown up and moved on to start their own families. The sense of luxury is clear in Buick vehicles, the kind of luxury that appeals more to those who have been on the road for decades and want a smoother ride, and an emphasis on comfort and ease of use over performance. Common models include the Enclave, Regal, and Encore.
Cadillac calls themselves makers of “prestige cars.” Cadillac captures luxury in ways other automakers can’t. The brand says luxury and class that spans multiple age groups, not just the normal target audience for Buick. The most famous name from Cadillac is, of course, the Escalade, but they also make the XT line of luxury crossovers and CT line of luxury sedans.
