Big and Bold There’s no mistaking American motor vehicles with their distinctive styling; sharp lines and full of muscle, they are built for the road.

The history of American cars reads more like a drama production at your local theatre, with its ups and downs, and usually at the extremes. Despite the ‘invasion’ of foreign imports from Europe and Asia in their home markets, classic American styling is still very much in evidence. Whether you fancy a Ford, Chevrolet, GMC, Chrysler, Dodge or Jeep, you will be able to find a model that suits you, from a compact sedan to a muscle-busting 4x4. The oversized car body might have disappeared, but the familiar attributes demanded by the American public have not diminished through competition. If there is one word that sums

up an American motor it has to be ‘power’. Engines that can burn up the road or sleek design lines all play to this word. Fortunately most of these options are available to us here in the Kingdom through the likes of Ahmed Zayani & Sons, National Motor Company and Almoayyed Motors. The Chevrolet Cruze, GMC Acadia, Ford Escape and Mondeo, Chrysler 300 or any number of Jeeps are frequently spotted around town. Of course, no mention of the American automobile industry could ever be complete without a reference to Harley-Davidson. This two-wheeler, more than anything else, is the epitome of the ‘American Dream’.
