Your Vehicle Is the Embodiment of Freedom

Henry Ford transformed his imagination into reality. Initially, it was just an idea in Henry Ford’s head until he decided to build his first experimental vehicle in a workshop behind his home in Detroit in 1896. After the Ford Motor Company was formed, the first Ford car was assembled at the Mack Avenue plant in July 1903.  During the industrial revolution in the 1920s, Henry Ford further fulfilled his American Dream. He built a massive workforce and continued to lead the automotive industry as an innovator. America was transformed by both the Ford itself and the production behind the scenes. Henry Ford built a vehicle that was large enough for the family but also small enough for an individual to take care of.  Henry Ford’s original idea of a vehicle is the American Dream -- through his hard work, he reached his highest aspirations and goals. Now, the modern vehicle is the embodiment of freedom. Through the vehicle, we have the everlasting choice to go places ... read more

What We Can Expect to See for the Next Decade in the Automotive Industry

Every decade or so, we can expect to see major changes in the automotive industry. For instance, in 1970, airbags became a staple in every vehicle, and in 1950, the first cars were equipped with cruise control. What can we expect to see in the upcoming decade? We don’t like to predict the future, but some things are already in the works…  Things are going to change for insurance companies, thanks to autonomous vehicles! Safety rates are going to increase, and insurance isn’t going to being eliminated due to autonomous vehicles’ “perfect” safety records, but the industry will undergo big changes and most likely, declines.  65% of US roads are in poor condition, which makes it challenging for cars with autopilot features to properly work. Hopefully, with the automotive innovations in autopilot features and autonomous vehicles, road and bridge infrastructure conditions will improve.  We can expect to be driving and owning different ve ... read more
