The “Most American” Car is The Toyota Camry?

Jackie's picture

At this point, the line between American cars and foreign cars is kinda blurred.  Foreign brands are assembled here, American manufacturers import parts, and so on.  But this still ain’t right.

Cars.com just released their annual American-Made Index, and the “Most American” car of the year is . . . the Toyota Camry.

The Ford F-150 finished second.  Cars.com says the gap between the two was EXTREMELY close.

The index is based on factors like car production in the U.S., domestic part usage, and U.S. sales.  So even though the Camry is a Japanese car, the ones we buy in the U.S. are assembled in Kentucky or Indiana.

Actually, five of the 10 “Most American” cars of 2012 are either Toyotas or Hondas.  Besides the Camry, the list also includes the Honda Accord, Toyota Sienna, Honda Pilot, and Toyota Tundra.

The other five on the list are all from the “Big 3″ American car companies:  The Ford F-150, Chevy Traverse, Jeep Liberty, GMC Acadia, and Buick Enclave.  (PR Newswire)
