What is the vehicle configuration database (VCdb)?

The vehicle configuration database (VCdb) is a fully normalized, relational database of vehicle configurations for passenger cars and light trucks sold in the US, Canada and Mexico. Base vehicle information (Year, Make, Model and Submodel) for Vintage vehicles (1896 – 1950) has also been added to the VCdb. The VCdb represents nearly 50 unique attributes, organized into vehicle systems or attribute groups that are validated against base vehicle and sub-model combinations. The structure of the database allows auto care industry companies to communicate applications with as much or as little detail as necessary. The result is more precise, accurate data. The VCdb is an essential element of any data solution that aims to manage and communicate complex vehicle information in an industry standardized format.
