Detroit wouldn’t be what it is were it not for the
automotive industry, and the automotive industry wouldn’t be what it is were it
not for Detroit. It’s impossible to understate the impact that the Motor City
has had on the American car market and its explosive growth throughout the 20th
Of the major players in the history of Detroit, few are as influential as General Motors. The Michigan city wasn’t a household name until pioneers like William Durant and Charles Stewart Mott put it on the map. When they founded General Motors in 1908 in Flint, Michigan (later moving to Detroit in the 1920s), they probably didn’t anticipate the impact their business would have.
As General Motors acquired Buick, Oldsmobile, Cadillac, and
Pontiac, manufacturing jobs and economic growth in Detroit skyrocketed. By
1950, Detroit was America’s fourth-largest city, with a population exceeding
1.85 million people. Throughout the 20th century, General Motors’ engineering
innovations injecting Detroit’s economy with vitality and prosperity. Even a
century later, General Motors is inextricably linked with Detroit’s reputation
as a hub of cutting-edge innovation.
