Report: Top 10 American-Made Cars


When it comes to the slogan “Made in America,” a few major brands like Ford and Chevrolet come to mind. But with so many changes in auto manufacturing these days, you may be wondering which cars are the most American-made? recently released its 2021 American-Made Index, which ranks all qualifying vehicles built and bought in the United States.

Here Are the Most American-Made Cars

The cars were ranked with five factors considered: location(s) of final assembly, percentage of U.S. (and Canadian) parts, engine and transmission countries of origin and manufacturing workforce.

Here are some key findings from the index:

  • Tesla models come in at #1 and #3 when it comes to most American-made vehicles.
  • One of only two muscle cars on the list, the Ford Mustang comes in at #2.
  • Honda has four models — the most of any automaker — in the top 10.
