Default 2019 Cars.com American-Made Index

The Jeep Cherokee is the most American-made car you can buy for the second year running, according to the latest report from Cars.com.

https://www.foxnews.com/auto/jeep-ch...can-made-index

The annual study calculates the total economic impact the production of a vehicle has on the local economy using a formula that includes where its parts are sourced from, where it is built and how many jobs it creates.

Some of this data lumps U.S. and Canadian parts content into one pool, but the study attempts to offset this by only considering vehicles built exclusively in the U.S. and giving weight to the final assembly location of engines and transmissions, two major components. Low volume, fleet-only and heavy duty models are excluded from the report.

The Belvidere, Illinois-built Cherokee is followed on the list by the Honda Odyssey, Honda Ridgeline and Honda Passport, which are all manufactured at the same plant in Lincoln, Alabama. While the Chevrolet Corvette, Acura MDX (non-hybrid), Honda Pilot, Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon and Acura RDX round out the top 10.

Of the top 15 vehicles, nine are from foreign brands (Honda and Toyota). The F-150 pickup is Fordís only entry on the list, while none of Teslaís California-built models made it, due in part to their high foreign parts content.

Along with the index, Cars.com also conducted a survey that asked consumers how important buying an American car is to them, and the responses differed significantly by age. According to the results, 61 percent of car shoppers age 18-34 said they cared if the car they buy benefited the U.S. economy, compared to 71 percent of customers age 35-54. Cars.comís analysis of the results suggest that this is due to the fact that younger Americans are much more likely to have grown up in a home that owned vehicles from foreign brands.

Here is the full Top 15 list:

1 Jeep Cherokee Belvidere, Ill.

2 Honda Odyssey Lincoln, Ala.

3 Honda Ridgeline Lincoln, Ala.

4 Honda Passport Lincoln, Ala.

5 Chevrolet Corvette Bowling Green, Ky.

6 Acura MDX (non-hybrid) East Liberty, Ohio

7 Honda Pilot Lincoln, Ala.

8 Chevrolet Colorado Wentzville, Mo.

9 GMC Canyon Wentzville, Mo.

10 Acura RDX East Liberty, Ohio

11 Chevrolet Camaro Lansing, Mich.

12 Toyota Avalon (non-hybrid) Georgetown, Ky.

13 Ford F-150 Claycomo, Mo., & Dearborn, Mich.

14 Honda Accord (non-hybrid) Marysville, Ohio

15 Toyota Tundra San Antonio, Texas

Honda Honda Honda.

I can't tell you how many times I got a "thumbs down" outside of a driver's window in the 80's driving my mom's Accord.

Morons.

These companies provide your jobs. The "American" companies offshore your jobs.
