The Southern Auto Corridor is a phrase that has been used almost every year over the last 10 years by CNN, USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, BusinessWeek and The New York Times, among other major media outlets in various reports on the South and its remarkable rise in automobile and truck vehicle production.
