The year is 2018 and there’s no denying it – people love SUVs and crossovers. In fact, people love them so much that even the elite realm of supercar manufacturers aren’t safe from the sway of profitable people movers. Lamborghini already has the Urus, Ferrari is in the process of building its own “Ferrari Utility Vehicle,” and well, Porsche has been on the gravy train for well over a decade now. The revolution, it seems, it unstoppable. Except, that is, for McLaren.
It seems like new rumors crop up on an almost monthly basis about Fiat Chrysler Automobiles merging, selling, or otherwise doing something with its various automotive brands. According to Automotive News Europe, the latest is that Chinese manufacturer Guangzhou Automobile Group Co. (GAC) might be seeking to buy a portion of FCA, and in particular, Jeep. FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne denied those rumors, however, at the Detroit Auto Show last Monday during a press conference.
Every year, a conglomeration of more than 30 current and retired auto designers from various companies descend on the Detroit Auto Show to hand out EyesOn Design awards for several design-related categories. 2018 was of course no different, with top honors going to Infiniti and BMW. Specifically, the Infiniti Q Inspiration Concept received the award for Best Concept Vehicle, and we can certainly see why.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
