Yes, you’re totally making sense, Highland1.
You can set up Chevrolet as a category or a class, and add the car models, like Chevy Cruze, as an inventory item. You can check this article for more information about categories: Set up categories in Products and Services.
I’ve also attached screenshot as your reference.
If you’ll pull up a report, like Sales by Product/Service Detail, the inventory item is under the specific category. Check the screenshot below.
