Automotive Content in Context - A Press Release concerning any facet of the automotive spectrum published on The Auto Channel is more valuable to both the reader and creator, than the same release published on a non automotive-centric site...Hey Google your machine intelligence(?) just doesn't seem to get it, hopefully your new AI search will.

The same attributes that separate CBS, NBC, ABC, FOX, CNN, ESPN, and the other full service television networks, from the multitude of Shopping Channels, make The Auto Channel a one-of-a-kind.

Unlike the popular one trick pony auto sites like KBB, Auto Trader, Edmunds, and, which attract a large audience satisfied with doing basic vehicle research; like new car specs and reviews, auto dealer inventory and some past model data, only The Auto Channel puts vehicle research in context.

Over the past 20 years the owners of The Auto Channel have consciously and rigorously built the largest independent automotive web site, offering viewers access to a matrix of in-depth, in-context easy to find automotive information and data. Over the past 18 years more than 200 million serious auto researchers have dug down into our more than 1 million pages of automotive news, opinion, reviews, and predictions…to get the information they needed to help make them a smarter buyer or facilitator.

The Auto Channel content includes not just competitive in-depth new and used car data, but provides the web’s original and “invented here” vehicle research tools like; TACH’s 4-car com-par-a-graph, TACH’s Rank By Spec (over 150), TACH’s New Vs. Used Car Comparison’s; TACH’s Total Cost Of Ownership Comparisons, along with 45 Brand Specific Buyers Guides, research tools that provide a meaningful context for the data.

Also included on The Auto Channel is “News For Every Brand” (1996-present), Professional opinions and vehicle reviews (no owner or amateur reviews here), in-depth information and opinions about alt fuels, Press Pass Coverage of the world’s major car shows (1997-Present), which includes a video library of hundreds of press events held at those shows as full and complete VIDEO no matter whether 5 minutes or 40 minutes…not just a 1 minute edited version found on the many shopping versions of automotive websites.

Since its inception in 1996 The Auto Channel has been, and continues to be committed to this feature, we were the first, and continue to be the only, auto site to archive video of these events, and to make it easy for viewers to see video of virtually every new car unveiled over the past 17 years.

Like at “real TV networks”, The Auto Channel producers’ editors and writers compose and publish relevant automotive or energy news stories from around the world, edit and refine and publish every relevant automotive news release provided by the world’s automotive associated companies, and publish original features, reviews and opinion from The Auto Channel writers with datelines from North America, Europe and Asia, information that allows our viewers to weigh the auto companies along with their products.

There is no other single automotive web site that provides the contextural and in-depth information that a car buyer or buff may want or need to see, and there is only one site on the web that can truly call itself The Auto Channel and that’s us.
