Cars have come a long way from being a simple mode of transport to luxury and status symbol. As a freelance content writer and ghostwriter, I write a lot about cars for my clients across the globe. In the past five years, I have already reached a state where I know quite a bit about American cars and car industry and technology with the kind of research I have to do for my writing assignments. To start with American automakers are very concerned about fuel economy, safety and comfort because those are the top priorities that car buyers think of, above everything else. However, car makers are now pushing the technological envelope to exceed the expectations of their customers.
