What better way is there to start off the New Year than by purchasing your dream car? While the holiday sales might be behind us, there are still plenty of affordable car deals to be found on the last 2017 models and a host of new 2018s. These January deals range from massive cash back incentives on a few large sedans to a 75-month zero percent financing deal on a compact SUV.
It was a big year for American automakers at the 2018 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS), with major debuts from Ford, Chevy, and Ram, plus introductions of vehicles from foreign manufacturers that will be built in America. Most of the new models will arrive in dealerships this year. If you’re a fan of pickups, it was a big year. Ford chose the Detroit Auto Show for the return of the Ranger, while Chevrolet brought out a redesigned Silverado and Ram presented the 2019 1500.
Finding the perfect car can seem like finding a needle in a haystack, but your search can be easier if you focus on just a few brands. Dozens of manufacturers sell cars in America, but not all brands are created equal – some have multiple vehicles that excel in their classes. Our Best Car Brand Awards recognize manufacturers with the best overall scores for their car models, not trucks, SUVs, or minivans.
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".
