Driving Line History
Launched in 2012 by Nitto Tire with the goal of creating a bridge between unique enthusiast niches, Driving Line was created to bring high-quality editorial content to wherever automotive enthusiasts were beginning with DrivingLine.com. From off-road to tuner, diesel to import, Driving Line brings all kinds of enthusiasts together. We believe that there is more in common between gearheads of all sorts than those items that differ between specific enthusiast niches.
As many print magazines began to close up shop, Driving Line moved in to fill the gap, releasing their first print magazine issue at SEMA in 2014. The print magazine has continued since then as a quarterly publication, featuring the best and most interesting stories from Driving Line, and distributed at events around the country, as well as being accessible in digital magazine format.
DrivingLine.com relaunched in 2015 in a whole new format, with full-length articles, galleries and videos all accessible from the homepage, so that enthusiasts were never far from the content they were looking for. It also had upgraded search and recommendations, helping to fulfill its mission of bringing enthusiast niches together.
Alongside that, Driving Line branched into all of the places where people were consuming content. You’ll find exclusive Driving Line content on all of its channels, from DrivingLine.com to its print magazine, Facebook, Instagram, IGTV and YouTube. It may be an article describing the latest diesel tech or a video taking you through some remote wilderness, but you can be sure it’s always based on a passion for everything on four wheels.
You’ll continue to find daily automotive content with high-quality images and reporting on all the places Driving Line is. If you’re lucky enough, you’ll even get to snag up one of our exclusive summer print photo annuals, gathering all the best photos from the past year into one gorgeous book worthy of any coffee table.
