Cars: Domestic and Foreign

Honda CRV

Around the time of Halloween and Thanksgiving, various car companies from around the world release information about their newest models. These companies try to sell you these new cars which vary from low to high prices. The quality in these cars are excellent but my question to you is: Why do you think foreign cars are more popular than American cars in the United States?

I have noticed that many foreign car companies tend to make and advertise their cars as luxury vehicles, yet also more affordable than the average American car.  Foreign companies such as Toyota and Honda tend to have cars and SUVs priced between $25,000 and $35,000.

These days, you tend to see more foreign cars in the U.S.  This is because foreign cars have been easier to come by and more affordable than an average American made car. Foreign car makers try to make their vehicles as luxurious and affordable to all Americans as they possibly can.

Ford F150

Lately foreign car companies have gained the most success in selling their cars due to their decent prices of their vehicles. American car companies tend to show off how strong their cars are built by over advertising huge massive trucks that apparently can carry heavy loads and even pull an airplane.

Cars like the Ford F150, Dodge Ram 1500 and the Chevy Silverado are cars that cost a lot of money to buy and to maintain, meaning that these gas guzzling machines can run you broke. Most American car companies are more bent on making huge cars that are economically not friendly and less time making cars that are economically friendly.  These American car companies might as well be making freight trains because these behemoths are expensive and powerful.  Foreign companies that make huge trucks like this try to make their trucks drink less fuel and still be able to get the job done with less use of fuel.
