What are the most American-made cars on the market? – SILive.com

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — Looking to shop domestic on your next vehicle purchase? The 2020 American-Made Index is here to help.

The American-Made Index, published annually by Cars.com, considers five unique factors to determine which vehicles contribute most to the American economy through their production.

“As the coronavirus pandemic continues to ravage global economies, a Cars.com survey of more than 1,000 U.S. licensed drivers in May 2020 found 70% consider a car’s U.S. economic impact a significant or deciding factor in their vehicle purchase; that’s up from 66% who indicated the same in 2019,” said Cars.com senior consumer affairs editor Kelsey Mays.

“To put a finer point on it, we asked if motorists’ desire to buy a vehicle assembled in the country had increased or decreased due to the pandemic. Thirty-seven percent said it increased; only 4% said it decreased,” Mays continued.

Vehicles are judged based on the final assembly location, the origin country of the car’s engine, the origin country of car’s transmission, the origin of all other car parts and the number of Americans employed at the factory level by the automaker.

Here’s a look at the 20 most American-made cars in 2020:

  1. Ford Ranger (assembled in Wayne, Mich.)
  2. Jeep Cherokee (Belvidere, Ill.)
  3. Tesla Model S (Fremont, Calif.)
  4. Tesla Model 3 (Fremont, Calif.)
  5. Honda Odyssey (Lincoln, Ala.)
  6. Honda Ridgeline (Lincoln, Ala.)
  7. Honda Passport (Lincoln, Ala.)
  8. Chevrolet Corvette (Bowling Green, Ky.)
  9. Tesla Model X (Fremont, Calif.)
  10. Chevrolet Colorado (Wentzville, Mo.)
  11. GMC Canyon (Wentzville, Mo.)
  12. Chevrolet Camaro (Lansing, Mich.)
  13. Honda Pilot (Lincoln, Ala.)
  14. Acura RDX (East Liberty, Ohio)
  15. Honda Accord (Marysville, Ohio)
  16. Toyota Tundra (San Antonio)
  17. Toyota Tundra (San Antonio)
  18. Cadillac CT5 (Lansing, Mich.)
  19. Cadillac XT4 (Kansas City, Kan.)

In Tesla’s first year participating, the company landed three of the top 10 spots in the American-Made Index, with the Model S, Model 3 and Model X ranking second, third and ninth, respectively.

Other strong performers include Honda, and its luxury brand Acura, which took home seven of the top 20 spots, as well as GM, which featured six of the top 20.
