Camry Is Most American Vehicle as Ranked by Domestic Content

By    |   Tuesday, 30 Jun 2015 07:38 AM

The Toyota Camry has been named the most American vehicle of 2015 by Cars.com, displacing last year's winner, the Ford F-150, after its domestic-parts content fell below 75 percent.

For the first time in the 9-year history of the "American-Made Index," the number of vehicles made with more than 75 percent of domestic materials has fallen to under 10, the website reported Sunday. Just as recently as 2010, 29 cars qualified for the America-Made Index.

Among the remaining truly American-made are the Toyota Sienna, Honda Odyssey, and Chevrolet Corvette, as well as GM's three-row crossovers, the Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Buick Enclave.

Altogether, automakers assembled 101 vehicles for the model year 2015, and U.S. production is on the rise. The domestically-made components and materials that go into the manufacturing of those vehicles, however, continues to shrink.

According to USA Today, Detroit remains the number one city that still produces vehicles with the highest amount of domestic materials. Still, the Buick Encore and Chevrolet Trax, designed by Detroit's Big 3 and made in South Korea, have less than 5 percent domestic content.

This year's most American vehicle, the Toyota Camry, is assembled in Toyota's Georgetown, Kentucky plant as well as in Lafayette, Indiana, through a partnership with Subaru.

"The Camry supports about 5,900 assembly-plant workers," wrote the authors of the Cars.com study.
