There are so many cars that are sold under multiple brand names but I don’t understand how. Like I understand how ford can make a crown vic into a mercury grand marquis because ford and mercury are the same brand, but I don’t understand when they’re nit the same brand. What I don’t understand is how they can use [a Dodge and sell it as a Volkswagen](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkswagen_Routan) or sell a [Land Rover as a Honda](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honda_Crossroad), or Chevy to Holden, Fiat to Jeep, Dodge to Fiat to Citroen, Dodge to Mercedes to Freightliner, and so many more. Unless there’s only like 3 car companies irl that own all the names I just don’t get it. Is it like they buy cars wholesale and put their name on it to sell at full price or what?
