Manufacturers & Their Brands

The auto industry's tangled family tree

A three-quarter front view of the Jeep Grand Cherokee at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show

The world of auto manufacturers rivals that of European royalty in terms of confusing family trees. Car companies own bits and pieces of each other, while others frequently share parts, platforms and even entire cars. While a brand like Chevrolet is 100 percent General Motors, a company like Suzuki is independent financially yet builds cars that are heavily based on GM products. On the flip side, Toyota owns a stake in Subaru but has nothing to do with its products...at least not yet. As we said, it's confusing. We've broken this list down into several main umbrella categories, with brands being associated through a combination of actual product relation and percentage of company ownership.
