What’s the most American car? The Ford Mustang? Chevy Camaro? Dodge Charger? Nope. It’s the Toyota Camry.
According to the annual Cars.com American-Made Index the Camry tops the list once again (for the third straight year) due not only to having its production based in American (at both the Georgetown, Ky. and Lafayette, Ind. Toyota plants), but because 80 percent of its parts are also made-in-America. To qualify for the list a vehicle has to have at least 75% of its parts made in the U.S.A. The Cars.com index also accounts for a high volume of sales, which helps put the Camry ahead as it is the best-selling car in America.
The second spot on the list also goes to another Japanese automaker, Honda, and the Accord. Finally, in third place, is a domestic automaker, GM, with the Chevy Malibu. Rounding out the top five are the Ford Explorer and another Honda, the Odyssey minivan.
