Through its American-Made Index, Cars.com determined which cars are the “most American.” The list takes into account where the car is assembled, the percentage of the car’s parts that are made in the U.S. and aligns it with the amount of cars sold here. Take a look:
The mid-sized sedan tops the list with parts made in both Kentucky and Indiana.
The sedan ranked high on the list because the majority of its parts are made in Ohio and Alabama.
The highest American automobile on the list jumps two spots from 2010 with many parts being made in Kansas City, Kan.
The highest-ranking SUV on the list makes its debut in the rankings thanks to its massive production facility in Chicago.
The minivan rose one spot on the list from 2010 as production increased in its Alabama manufacturing plant.
The minivan jumped four spots from last year thanks to increased production in Indiana.
The original off-road vehicle climbed two spots from 2010 based upon production at its Toledo, Ohio plant.
The Lansing Michigan product is a newcomer to the list in 2011.
This truck is Toyota’s third and final addition to the list as much of it is manufactured in the U.S. at its San Antonio facility.
GMC’s only contribution to the list is another Lansing product proving that Detroit may no longer be ‘Motor City.’
Even if you bought a car from an American automaker, that doesn’t guarantee all its parts were made domestically. Cars.com breaks down the top cars made in America.
