VCdb Expands to Four New Latin America Countries

by Jonathan Larsen, Vice President, Standards & Digital Products

In our previous “What the Tech?” blog post, we highlighted the new content added to the Vehicle Configuration Database (VCdb). This month, we will highlight four new Latin American countries that we started offering vehicle data for in the VCdb. In the coming months as research is completed, new vehicles for these countries will be added to the Latin America VCdb.

The latest vehicles were added to the Latin America VCdb for the following countries:

  • Bolivia
  • Dominican Republic
  • Guatemala
  • Panama

Below, we used the VCdb Release Notes to filter on the new Bolivia, Dominican Republic, Guatemala and Panama content that was released in the South America VCdb.


The Image above shows the VCdb Vehicle Release Note section for (the new Countries: Bolivia, Dominican Republic, Guatemala and Panama) allows users to search each VCdb version to learn what is new for both the vehicles and equipment. In the “Vehicle” search, users can search by “Country” (Region Name), “Year” and “Vehicle Type.” Content for vehicles users can review is found under the “Vehicle Type”, “Make” and “Model” by “Country” (Region Name).

These four new countries join the already established Latin America data group that includes:

  • Argentina
  • Brazil
  • Chile
  • Colombia
  • Costa Rica
  • Ecuador
  • Peru

And here's a snapshot of our VCdb coverage across the Americas.

A special “thank you” to our partner, Integrated Data Facts (IDF), which has been instrumental in providing great content for these Latin American countries.
