Automotive Terminology

For the most part I have a general understanding of design-related vocabulary. But having not worked in the industry I’ll periodically need to look up a word to be sure. Since having it all referenced in one place would be easier, I made this chart.

In case you’re wondering as to the veracity of the data, it was run by Dick Ruzzin, former GM Design Chief. I’m open to updating it, should anyone have suggestions (I already noticed I should have listed the rear fascia in addition to the front).
