Category: American Cars
Known for their power and muscle, American cars manufactured in the United States are beloved by petrol-heads around the globe. According to the study, 72 percent of new-car buyers regard the car’s geographic origin to be a key or determining factor in their decision, with 29 percent believing it would be “unpatriotic” to acquire a non-domestic-built model. The American Automobile Labeling Act requires car manufacturers to include information about a vehicle’s country of origin on the so-called “Monroney” price sticker, including the percentage of U.S./Canadian parts used, the vehicle’s assembly location, and the nations where the engine and transmission are built. The labeling statute recognizes Canadian parts and construction as basically originating from the United States, therefore perhaps the list could be referred to as the “most North American” automobiles. We review the best that the US has to offer, and compare them against each other. Knowing what an American vehicle brand or model is isn’t as straightforward as it once was. Prior to the internationalization of the car industry, it was simple to say that any GM, Chrysler, or Ford vehicle was as American as baseball, corn dogs, and apple pie—a slogan that Chevrolet exploited to great purpose in its 1970s advertising. There are various characteristics that may be used to assess if a vehicle is a ruby American product today. None of them are really clear. If you want to keep things easy, just name the current brands that originated in the United States: Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, Ford, Lincoln, and Tesla.
