IRVINE, Calif., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Ten Great Cars for 10 Different Jobs, http://www.kbb.com/10cars10jobs, today were named by the expert editors from Kelley Blue Book, www.kbb.com, the leading provider of new car and used car information.
While some may think of the Labor Day holiday as the end of summer, the beginning of school, the start to football season, or perhaps just another three-day weekend, the U.S. Department of Labor sees it as a "yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country."
In the spirit of the national holiday and putting some of the 'labor' back into Labor Day, the editors of Kelley Blue Book's kbb.com created a list of 10 Great Cars for 10 Different Jobs. The editors chose corresponding new-car options for such vastly diverse jobs as: real estate agent, bounty hunter, small business delivery/utility, private investigator, courier, long-haul salesman, marketing, construction, outdoor tour guide and paper delivery.
"In light of the uniquely American work ethic and love of cars, and of course the United States' Labor Day holiday weekend, our editors thought of 10 very different jobs and then brainstormed the best new vehicles on the market for those occupations," said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director and executive market analyst for Kelley Blue Book's kbb.com. "From more extreme occupations like bounty hunters, private investigators and outdoor tour guides, to more common jobs like small-business owners, real estate agents and salesmen, the kbb.com list is sure to provide thought-provoking transportation options for those in various lines of work."
