Which Automaker Owns Your FAVORITE Car Brand – 2019 Edition

Evos are red sti’s are blue but both of
them go Brep Stu sue sue sue I hope you
liked it I don’t even know who makes my
car because it’s so confusing which
automaker company owns your favourite
car brand I bet you’re watching this
video cuz you may not know or if you do
you might be surprised with some others
because over the past 10 years there’s
been a lot of partnerships made and
dissolved car companies bought while
others have been killed off and so it
can be extremely confusing to know who
owns which car brands auto manufacturers
have lately been focused on running
well more efficient and profitable
businesses smart business move guys so
brands were discontinued like the
mercury with the Marauder whoo I like
that sleeper Oldsmobile now that’s a
good one to kill off because did they
make anything cool after 1970 Pontiac
and that fire-breathing g8 and the
legendary Hummer with the extreme
off-roading capabilities of the h1 these
brands will fade into the history books
forever while other brands have been
introduced and then retired in a
relatively short amount of time
remember the Scion with the Scion xB
toaster oven from Toyota yeah it was
supposed to appeal towards a younger
customer base featuring mostly sport
compacts but whatta killed that project
off about ten years after it started
because they just weren’t selling it’s
just a crapshoot so in this video I’m
gonna introduce the parent company and
then all of the car brands that are
owned by that parent company that you’ll
find here in the USA and then I’ll
introduce an ideal car that is made by
each brand this is gonna be fun and if
you’re new here my name is Brad danger
and this is the ideal cars YouTube
channel we’re next generation car
enthusiasts tune in for new content like
this almost every single day so if you
learn a thing or two in this video
please hit that like button and also
subscribe for more all right let’s start
off with a banger the Volkswagen Group
is absolutely killing it with an
impressive lineup of car companies you
probably didn’t know that they don’t
limit themselves to just designing and
manufacturing passenger and commercial
cars but they also do motorcycles
engines and turbo machinery they sell
more than any other automaker in the
world and well they owned Volkswagen duh
with that dreamy Volkswagen r32 outie
with the rs2 Avant Porsche with
9:11 Lamborghini with the LP 550 – – you
got to get that two-wheel drive Bentley
with the Continental GT Bugatti with
that infamous Veyron yeah that guy was a
nut he wasn’t screwed on tight
and the one and only Ducati with their
stunning 1199 Panigale are I gotta say
that is quite the list and I will one
day own multiple cars from the
Volkswagen Group using the ideal car
strategies next we have zgh who owns
lotus with the canyon carving a lease
volvo with the surprisingly quick and
nimble pull star seat 30 and just pull
star who has been known as the
performance brand for volvo and will be
going directly after tesla with fully
electric vehicles with the deep pockets
that zgh has I can’t wait to see the
exciting cars that they actually produce
and while we’re on the topic of electric
cars let’s talk about Tesla who will be
breaking records and next with the new
Tesla Roadster the electric car
manufacturer was founded in 2003 and
named after the physicist Nikola Tesla
the infamous and outspoken Elon Musk has
aimed at offering electric cars and an
affordable price to average customers
since very early on and I think that
they’ve been able to accomplish that
with the model 3 and Tesla is a publicly
traded company and then we have Toyota
who is the world’s market leader in
sales for hybrid electric vehicles and
builds that not so ideal Prius in the
ideal twin-turbo the mark for Supra
which if you want to see me compare the
mark 4 with the mark 5 look at them they
own both Toyota and they also have Lexus
which is their luxury division of the
Japanese automaker and the maker of the
very high-strung LFA Nurburgring
man that sounds so good
next is the Subaru Corp with their own
distinct sound with the use of the
iconic sounding boxer engine layout and
that all-wheel drive in almost every
vehicle this has helped them become one
of the most successful rally brands ever
and that technology has just trickled
down to some of their street cars
including the STI did somebody say rally
the Renault Nissan Mitsubishi Alliance
is a strategic partnership between
Renault Nissan and Mitsubishi
unfortunately here in the USA we don’t
get any results like the
high-performance r5 turbo but we were
fortunate to get the Nissan r35 gt-r
just not the our 34 or 33 or our 32 and
for a while we were able to get
Mitsubishi the STI fighter but then they
killed off the project
the infamous Evo oh and I wrote a poem
about the rivalry Evo’s are red st eyes
are blue but both of them go braaap Stu
Stu Stu Stu I hope you liked it
lastly under this alliance is the
Infiniti brand with that g35 now mazda
is the 15th largest automaker worldwide
and is the producer of the iconic rotary
cars like the rx-7
and although Mazdas aren’t as popular as
either Toyota’s or Honda the quality of
their cars is just as good and they are
independently owned now let’s shift
gears that’s a right hand drive to the
British Formula One supercar brand
McLaren they haven’t really been around
that long just 33 years but they built
some of the most tech forward cars in
the world and it’s independently owned
when I have the money the 650s
is on my short list of first super cars
to buy from all the money that I haven’t
yet made on YouTube so if you’ve enjoyed
this video so far smash the subscribe
button turn on notifications and get me
one sub closer to my ideal McLaren ok
thanks for subscribing let’s carry on
Hyundai Motor Company who is the Vela
star turbo r-spec also owns a portion of
Kia who built the kia Stinger GT which
has surprisingly got some pretty solid
reviews also they have Genesis motors
which is the luxury division of Hyundai
and slated to make moves with the G 70
sport sedan and take on the likes of BMW
and Audi and who knows if it’s anything
like the Stinger GT it might have a
fighting chance and a staple in the
tuner and engine swap world is Honda who
is known for
putting out a ton of reliable fun sports
cars over the years including the Honda
s2000 but did you note that they also
own Acura which is the luxury division
of Honda and they built the first NSX
that first gen was an instant classic
the new one not so much
next up is GM or general motor company
and they were founded over a hundred and
ten years ago by William C Durant GM is
the largest American automobile
manufacturer they own brands like Buick
who built the Grand National Cadillac
with the ultimate grocery getter aka the
CTSV wagon and if you want to see the
video on what is the ultimate sleeper
which might be the CTSV click up here
they also own Chevrolet and hopefully
one of my next midlife crisis ideal cars
is the c8 Corvette and GMC which built a
truck that could outrun a Ferrari the
high-performance SUV called the typhoon
now let’s move on to Ford which stands
for fix or repair daily now actually
it’s named after the legend Henry Ford
he created the Model T and
revolutionized the automotive industry
and his company actually also built the
ideal Ford GT which recalls on Ford’s
historically significant gt40 and its
four consecutive wins at the 24 Hours of
LeMans from 1966 to 69 yea car history
is so cool and they also own the company
Lincoln which some of you may know from
the Continental the boys an entourage
drove convertible boat with suicide
doors is not something that you see
every day now when I say Enzo what’s the
first thing that pops into your head
yeah it’s more than you can afford pal
Ferrari I hope you get the reference
this independently owned Italian luxury
sports car manufacturer has a
deep-rooted and successful racing
history and has built some extremely
capable Road cars as well including the
f430 Scuderia oh yeah that was a quarter
million dollar mistake that happened
while I was on the Corsa rally if you
want to see the whole thing unfold check
it out their super powers baby next on
our list is fix it again Tony or more
commonly known as Fiat again that was a
joke but it is a four-letter word
regardless Fiat Chrysler automobiles
owns quite a few car brands and they’re
doing pretty well from themselves
yeah they produced the Abarth biposto
and Chrysler produced the unsuccessful
Prowler but they also owned Alfa Romeo
who makes the understated Quadrifoglio
dodge with the mind-numbing demon Jeep
with the 707 horsepower Grand Cherokee
track Hawk Maserati with their
timeless GranTurismo MC ram trucks with
the viper powered srt-10 and they own a
Mopar which is the combination of mow
from motor and par from parts that you
didn’t know that one Daimler AG is next
up on the list and it’s one of three
main German automakers which includes
BMW and Volkswagen Group Daimler AG owns
Maybach which builds the ultra high-end
s-class sold by Mercedes Maybach and
they also own Mercedes Benz who built
the AMG
GTR and they also own the
high-performance brand that Mercedes
hires out to build their m5 and rs6
competitor called AMG lastly believe it
or not they own smart which builds the
cutest little micro cars you’ve ever
seen and another one of the big three
German automakers is BMW which has been
known for building some of the most
capable sports cars in Zee world
including the e36 m3 yeah for the price
these are definitely ideal cars
considering they were coined the best
handling car at any price in the 1990s
but did you know that BMW also owns mini
and the go kart like Cooper S Works GP
and if you want some extreme luxury they
also own Rolls Royce which made the
phantom 3 which was the only v12
rolls-royce built until 1998 yeah
there’s some newer ones like the
striking Phantom Drophead coupe but I
just think that phantom 3 is one of the
most beautiful cars ever made I could
stare at you all day long the names bond
James Bond yeah you know how we’re
finishing this one off the car brand
choice for not only double-oh-seven but
also jay-z Aston Martin baby and their
independently owned and built the
fantastic value known as the Aston
Martin Vantage
six speed which is car that fits
perfectly into the ideal car strategies

  1. Thanks for all the support! This list was made to spread some clarity on which automakers own your favorite car brand (specifically in the USA). The one company I forgot to mention is TATA Motors, who owns Land Rover and Jaguar. Hope you enjoyed this video, pls subscribe because our best content isn't even out yet!

  2. Also the Jaguar and Ford partnership where Ford sort of finished off the last bit of meat on that cats bones before it reincarnated into a shadow of its former self… poor cat

  3. Not sure Aston Martin is indepedant. Last i heard they were owned by Ford (Fix Or Repair Daily). I prefer the acronym of LOTUS…Lot Of Trouble, Usually Serious.

  4. aston martin uses a lot of parts from Mercedes Benz and the mercedes CLA is autually a nissan underneath. bet you didnt know that. and the landrover evoqe is based on the ford escape .

  5. AMC Eagle Would be the 80's car for me. Not featured in the video. Not sure which car I want more, the wagon or the SX/4. Today, it would be categorized as a cross-over. One look and your thinking, rally racer! With modern mechanics and technology, it would be a sight to behold, a joy to drive, sex on wheels. I wouldn't mind some how get the rights to the design and open source it under creative commons.
    Oh, the sweetness!

  6. What about Saab and Suzuki? And you forgot about Toyota owning Diahatsu. And you made me realize I just dodged a bullet, I seriously looked at buying a Mistubishi Lancer, but lately I've heard the quality of cars by the Renault /Nissan has been dropping. And now you tell me Mitsubishi is in that group. Glad I went back to VW after 12 years with Toyota and 15years with Suzuki. My 1st car was a VW bug, and now I'm back in a VW Golf. Feels like home.

  7. Carmin in Osnabruck Germany actually builds many German cars..Scirocco , VW Ghia, and a few Mercedes models are a few ( older) that come to mind. Just saying your German car might not be built at the plant you think.

  8. Aren't Opel and GM related? Renault is pronounced Ren-no. French love using letters they don't have to say. Tesla is a newer company than GM…. GM went belly up in 2009 and reopened as "Chevy". Tesla is the first new American car brand since Chrysler in 1925. And…. it's sad day when Chrysler cars are owned by Fiat, Budweiser beer is own by Belgians. FIAT not only stands for Fix it again Tony, but the Germans say "Fehler ins alles teilen" which means errors in all parts.

  9. VW also owns Audi
    Fiat owns Ferrari
    Merchandise own McLaren and Bentley
    Ford owns Volvo and has for years
    Gm owned Holden till recently who use make a car called the manaro and export from Australia to the USA as the Pontiac gto

  10. You don't know shit about cars if you think Mazda is just as reliable as Honda or Toyota Mazda has lots of reliability problems only one was OK was the gay miata

  11. Fhi owns Subaru.
    Toyota owns 16.5% of fhi.
    Nissan makes the button switches, and usdm wrx has a Mitsubishi turbo

  12. A really great vid, but you forgot to mention Škoda and Seat, which are owned by the Volkswagen Group.

  13. Forget skoda and seat in the VAG group at the start? 😂 Guess they all look the same so easy to forget haha

  14. Toyota also owns Yamaha motorycles and Ferrari is owned by FCA. Lamborghini is also owned by Audi- which is owned by VW.

  15. A car which no one ever seems to mention, but one of my all time favorites is the 1997 Volvo 850R. One day I will own another one of these iconic automobiles.

  16. The new nsx is a great car actually! Their problem is that they didn't use pinafirina design the new one again.

  17. Has anyone else mentioned that Henry Ford started a small car company called CADILLAC (seriously look it up)

  18. My favourite automobile conglomerate is FIAT aka FCA. You failed to mention Lancia which is under FCA. FYI for those who don't; Ferrari has been a part of FIAT from almost the beginning where Enzo F. built engines and tuned them for rally and other auto races on behalf of FIAT, then he went on to establish his own automobile Co. which focused on high performance cars which was later acquired by FIAT and not so long ago they broke away for some 'weird reason'. Abarth is just a performance optimised/tuned FIAT automobile. Furthermore you omitted VW entirely and the brands they own such as Lamborghini and Bugatti
