Two Jeep Models Top List of "Most American" Vehicles
Just in time for Independence Day, Cars.com announced the vehicles on their annual American-Made Index, with the Jeep Wrangler firmly in first place and the Jeep Cherokee placing second.
Cars.com evaluates vehicles on the following key criteria: domestic parts content, assembly location, country of transmission origin, country of engine origin and United States factory employment. The domestic parts content of the Wrangler, which is assembled in Toledo, Ohio, was determined to be among the highest among all vehicles this year: 74 percent for the Wrangler two-door and 75 percent for the Wrangler four-door.
In a press release, Mike Manley, Head of Jeep Brand – FCA Global, commented, “We are delighted to celebrate America’s most patriotic day with the news that Cars.com’s American-Made Index has ranked Jeep Wrangler and Cherokee as the two overall most-American vehicles for 2017. On this Fourth of July holiday we salute the dedicated employees who build Wrangler and Cherokee, as well as the loyal Jeep owners who drive them.”
