Who Owns the BMW Company?

Who Owns the BMW Company?

Here are the essential facts you need to know about BMW

BMW is one of the longest-serving companies in the world, known first and foremost for the sporty nature of the vehicles it has been building throughout the decades. What’s more, the company also made a name for itself in various motorsport competitions such as Formula One, Formula Two, DTM (Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters), Le Mans, Dakar Rally, and various other endurance racing series.

The brand’s history hasn’t been a smooth one, as BMW had to build airplane engines to stay afloat as well as frying pans at some of its lowest career moments. The company traces its roots back to 1916, when Karl Rapp and Gustav Otto merged their companies in what would become the BMW we know today. The official founding date of BMW is March, 7, 1916.

Six Generations of the Ford Explorer

Six Generations of the Ford Explorer

Ford’s iconic SUV has had a roller coaster life

The Ford Explorer has been around for almost 30 years. In that time, the SUV segment has evolved in ways no one could’ve dreamed of. Through it all, the Explorer has remained one of the segment’s backbones, a pillar from which the SUV world has stood on for close to three decades. The Explorer’s life reads like a Hollywood script, too. It started off with a bang, establishing itself as one of the most popular SUVs on the market. That success lasted for more than a decade before the Explorer lost its way as other SUVs arrived. Sales eventually cratered, leaving Ford desperate to recapture the magic the Explorer had when it became the breakout hit of the early ’90s. The return to form eventually took place as the SUV segment in the U.S. exploded. With the Explorer now entrenched as one of the most popular SUVs in the market, Ford’s banking on the sixth-generation model to keep that momentum. Whether it does so or not remains to be seen, but the all-new Explorer appears fully equipped to take on that challenge.

Hurricane Dorian is Knocking on Your Door – Here's How to Prepare and Protect Your Car

Hurricane Dorian is Knocking on Your Door – Here’s How to Prepare and Protect Your Car

It’s going to be a rough one

Hurricanes are, by far, one of Mother Nature’s greatest examples of downright anger and brute force.

Humans are resilient, though, and we always rebuild, but while everyone is busy boarding up windows and preparing their house, cars are often an afterthought for most. Sure, those of us that are enthusiasts think about protection, but everyone should do at least some basic preparation to protect their car in the event that a violent hurricane decides to come and take everything away.

Best Used 2016 SUV for Fuel Economy

Who said these big boys can’t run efficiently?

The market trend is quickly shifting from sedans to crossovers and SUVs. However, SUVs have two major cons when compared to their segment counterparts - high retail price and poor fuel economy. Even though they are a practical choice thanks to additional cabin and cargo space, it’s a little difficult for everyone to afford an SUV. So why not go for a used SUV instead?
