All Change: Are America’s Automakers Ready? – The Big Picture

We used to call them the Big Three because, well, they were the three biggest automakers in the world. For much of the 20th century, GM, Ford, and Chrysler each made more cars—and more money—than anyone else in the auto biz. They made Detroit the automotive capital of the world by the 1920s and one of the wealthiest cities in America by the 1950s. Back then, the masters of the universe cruised Woodward Avenue, not Wall Street. A lot has changed. For a start, the Big Three aren’t so big anymore. ...

The end of the road arrived 69 years after another Holden, the hunchbacked 48/215, proudly announced the birth of “Australia’s Own Car.” Officially, GM’s decision to quit making cars in Australia—which followed similar exits by Ford and Toyota—w...
