Oldsmobile was a brand of American automobiles produced for most of its existence by General Motors.
Olds Motor Vehicle Co. was founded by Ransom E. Olds in 1897.
In its 107-year history, it produced 35.2 million cars, including at least 14 million built at its Lansing, Michigan factory.
When it was phased out in 2004, Oldsmobile was the oldest surviving American automobile marque, and one of the oldest in the world, after Daimler , Peugeote and Tatra .
The closing of the Oldsmobile division presaged a larger consolidation of GM brands and discontinuation of models during the company's 2009 bankruptcy reorganization.

The GMT 360 debuted in 2002 with the Chevrolet TrailBlazer, GMC Envoy, and Oldsmobile Bravada, as the next generation S/T mid-size SUVs. While it replaced the GMT 330, it shared nothing with the older platform. It used hydroformed frame rails like the larger GMT 800, and was built for GM's Atlas inline engines. The GMT 360 (and the long-wheelbase GMT 370) went on to be one of the most rebadged GM products with six different marques represented. The 360 uses an independent suspension in front. In the rear, the Ascender and TrailBlazer use a 5-link rear suspension, while the rest have an air suspension. A 4-speed automatic is the only transmission available. Prior to GM's 2009 bankruptcy, all GMT 360 products were discontinued and the Moraine, Ohio plant that produced the GMT 360 series was closed. Simultaneous with the cancellation of the GMT 360 program, development of the GMT 361 replacements were also suspended. A new body-on-frame midsize SUV retaining the Chevrolet TrailBlazer name and built in Thailand was launched as part of the GMT 700 program; however, it will not be sold in North America, as the GM Lambda platform crossovers fill the market's need.
Ransom Eli Olds (June 3, 1864 Ц August 26, 1950) was a pioneer of the American automotive industry, for whom both the Oldsmobile and REO brands were named. He claimed to have built his first steam car as early as 1894, and his first gasolineЦpowered car in 1896. The modern assembly line and its basic concept is credited to Olds, who used it to build the first mass-produced automobile, the Oldsmobile Curved Dash, beginning in 1901.[
