American auto database
Originally I provided car databases only for European market (made since 2003). Shortly after I started selling car databases in 2012, I realized that I should make databases for American market. I made Year-Make-Model in February 2013 and Year-Make-Model-Trim-Specs in 2014. In 2017 sales of American databases exceeded sales of European databases.

I analyzed how American cars evolved over past 30 years. The average engine size rose from 3.33 L in 1990 to 4.09 L in 2007 then dropped to 3.42 L in 2022 due to introduction of turbochargers that allowed downsizing engines, meantime horsepower rose from 142 HP in 1990 to 313 HP in 2022. In 2022 domestic cars averaged 336 HP vs imported cars 295 HP. US manufacturers discontinued many car models in 2020 to focus on SUV, causing a sharp increase in average height and weight and a sharp decrease in MPG.
