In 1913, the Ford Model T, created by the Ford Motor Company five years prior, became the first automobile to be mass-produced on a moving assembly line. By 1927, Ford had produced over 15,000,000 Model T automobiles.
The United States is also home to three large vehicle manufacturers: General Motors, Ford Motor Company, and Chrysler, which have historically been referred to as the "Big Three".

Is this 'immigration'?
The best-selling passenger car in the United States is not one from the Big Three, but the Toyota Camry, although it is also manufactured in the US
"The Big Three" refers to the three largest automobile manufacturers headquartered
in the United States. While there have been roughly 1,800 car manufacturers in the US over the course of the 20th century, only three large corporations with considerable sales numbers were left by the 1980s. The term is applied to General Motors, the Ford Motor Company, and the Chrysler Corporation.
The corporation sells its vehicles in the United States under the following divisions and subsidiaries:
Hummer, defunct as of 2010
Pontiac defunct as of 2010
Saturn Corporation defunct as of 2010-11
Oldsmobile defunct as of 2005
Ford Motor Company:
The corporation sells vehicles under the following brand names and subsidiaries:
Ford Motor Company
Mercury defunct as of 2011
Chrysler manufactures and sells vehicles under the following brands:
DeSoto defunct 1961
Imperial defunct 1975
Jeep (acquired in 1987 after Chrysler absorbed American Motors' business assets from its parent owner Renault)
Ram Trucks (formerly Dodge Truck Division)
Plymouth defunct in 2001
AMC defunct in 1987 (remaining stock purchased by Chrysler Corporation from Renault)
Eagle defunct in 1998 (was established as the successor to American Motors)
SRT defunct as of 2014 (consolidated back into Dodge)
no longer existing or functioning.
These marques from the Big Three are currently marketed in the U.S.
What are the driving differences between these 'Big Three' marques and the others?
These offer long road/distance driving with much easier and much more 'loosed' than the other 'short distance', 'tightened' driving.
And it would make sense since the U.S has many many square miles it covers.
