What is THE Most American Made Vehicle?

posted by Paul James - 

We’re always being encouraged to buy American, but when it comes to cars a lot of us opt to go foreign. But if you are someone who really does want to stick to American products as best you can, you may be surprised about which cars are the “most American” out there.

Cars.com just came out with their annual American-Made Index, and for the first time ever, the Jeep Wrangler earned the title of overall “most American made” vehicle. The site based their decisions on five important factors:

  • Assembly location: The location in which the vehicle's assembly plant is located
  • Domestic parts content: Percentage of a vehicle's parts content originating in the United States and Canada as determined by the American Automobile Labeling Act
  • Country of engine origin
  • Country of transmission origin
  • U.S. factory employment: Each automaker's direct U.S. factory employment relative to its sales footprint

Jeep, which is located in Toledo, Ohio, actually took the top two spots, with Jeep Cherokee coming in second. For both cars, their domestic parts content was very high, 75% for the Wrangler and 70% for the Cherokee, while all the engines, and almost all the transmissions from both cars were made in the USA, with the vehicles assembled in Toledo.
