7 of the Most Innovative American Cars from the 20th Century

Arguably no country has shaped the manufacturing and design of automobiles more than the U.S. While German-born Karl Benz introduced the world to its first motor car (which eventually bore the name of an original Mercedes Benz founder’s daughter, Mercedes), it was American ingenuity that largely drove the automotive industry forward. At the turn of the 20th century, innovator Henry Ford offered a new line of affordable cars to the world with his Model T, while decades later, the Chevrolet Corvette brought muscle and adrenaline to the pavement.
