So the Camaro, Mustang, Challenger, F-150, Silverado don't make the list? Makes perfect sense for a list of "most American cars." After reading this list, I read the description, very misleading Headline. Like others have said though, follow the money, and you'll find out whose economy you are helping.

Way to go Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge.  However, as I've said for years, follow the money.  Where that profit ends is the true test to where the vehicle is really from.

I don't care if what I have to say offends anybody and everybody. The only auto makers left that are American are from GM and Ford. I don't care where your Tundra, your Passat or your Leaf is assembled, it's not American. I don't even consider Chrysler American and haven't since their first bankruptcy in the 80's. They have been foreign owned ever since. Even if Fiat only has a 35% ownership they are still foreign.

the bottom line here people is It does not matter where the parts come from. The profits from Gm.Chrysler and Ford stay in America. Unlike the Toyota and Honda and all the other Jap Crap and Korean cars and trucks. Billions of dollars each "Quarter" are send back home from their profits

Everybody thinks it's about "parts".  There is no household in America that does not buy goods of one kind or another that come from other countries.  Are you still Americans?  Or are you some sort of foreign/American mongrel?  It's about PROFIT, and who makes it and where does that money go to stimulate the economy.  Profit is great.  Unless it goes to Japan, Korea, Germany, China...etc.  Those "Toyotas made in America" are merely assembled from Japanese parts.  The japanese get the profit.

We had been purchasing Cadillacs, and were about to purchase another.  We , however find that the SRX is only about one third US made, and future Cadillac vehicles are planned to be made in China.  Sorry Charlie, I want an American Cadillac.  Every year GM raises the price nearly 20%, with price increases and addition of unwanted options.  Who needs a glass roof?  For the price of the glass roof you could have added tri zone climate control ( air in rear ), and chrome wheels and saved a couple of thousand dollars!

How do you leave the Tesla Model S off of this list.  It has more American content than all these other cars...and, it is made to better standards!

Corvette:
The Corvette is American, the economy is global. As such, the Corvette is assembled in America with parts sourced from GM and supplier plants based from around the globe. The transmission is made in Mexico, the brakes are made in Australia, the engines (LS3, non dry sump) are made in Canada. The wheels are made in China, Taiwan and Italy. The interior parts are made in America as well as in Germany. The body panels are made in America in Ohio The glass is made in America, the Z06 aluminum frames are made in Kentucky...and so on, and so on.
This article should read Canada, Mexico, Germany, Australia, China, Taiwan, and Italy but it is assembled here from what I can find.
Is the statement above true or exactly how much of this thing really made in the USA? There are several generic answers in this article please correct them, sorry.

The issue here is not how much of the cars are American made, but rather whether their parts are all truly company parts. They are. They might be made elsewhere, and shipped into the U.S., but they are made by U.S. company owned plants in other countries.

There is no way that an entire vehicle can be built in this country anymore. If they were, the costs of those cars would go up by probably 25-30%...maybe more on some models.
