lol you never noticed a yukon, suburban, gmc denali, tahoe had the same exact body ? or navigator and ford expedition looked the same ? rebranded luxury brands are an american invention. people like spending more for the same thing over here. acura = honda, infiniti = nissan, lexus = toyota.

anyways a lot of companies were brought out over the decades by other car companies as either a strategy, or before they went bankrupt. in america only 3 were left, ford, gmc and chrysler, its all a huge circle fcuk.

Everytime we get another car we have a long discussion about all the other cars then buy a Volkswagen.

that's how it usually works with the luxury cars but the luxury cars have better features

you are paying for that and name

I never want a luxury car unless I become a millionaire

yup, not too much of a difference tbh. the luxury version just has upgraded features like navigation, better interior materials(wood, upgraded leather, etc) and sound system....sometimes the luxury cars have better glass to make the car more sound proof.
 
if those options aren't a big deal, you might as well just get the generic version with all the bells and whistles, if you're into that stuff. the engine, chasis, axels are all the same.
 
imho, if you want to go luxury, then you should stick with bmw or mercedez.

Ok, here's the deal.
Mercedes and BMW are the only luxury (non-sports) cars that use their own parts. Yes you can find BMW motors in Coopers and Range Rovers, but you'll never find another motor in a BMW. Mercedes is strictly Mercedes, however for a period you could find Mercedes parts in Diamler Chrysler cars when they owned them.
I've owned several Mercedes over the years, they're great cars, but need to be serviced regularly. You can avoid the high cost of maintenance by finding a good independent mechanic that will let you use your parts ordered online for an extreme discount.
I just recently switched to Cadillac because I wanted to drive American made, however my next purchase will likely be a Mercedes and I'll keep a Cadillac truck for hauling the kids and towing. (since it's basically a chevy truck anyway)
