Argent MC then announced a new marque, Vectre to compete in the upper markets such as Pontiac and Dodge in 1960. The plan was to create a ladder on marques within Argent MC to keep customers within the company, structured after General Motor's brand hierarchy. Argent MC was then incorporated as a corporation in 1967. The Argent marque was founded in 2004 to compete in the luxury market against Cadillac, Mercedes-Benz, Anueis, Audi, BMW, and Lincoln.
