2018 Jeep Cherokee Tops American-Made Index!
2018 Jeep Cherokee Tops Cars.com American-Made Index!
What does it mean to buy American? At a time when 71 percent of consumers believe buying American contributes significantly or substantially to the U.S. economy, this complicated question is important. The annual Cars.com American-Made Index provides an answer. The 2018 index, released June 21, helps car shoppers and dealerships determine the “most American” vehicles of 2018 – those that have the greatest impact on the U.S. economy, taking into account which cars:
• Are manufactured in America.
• Have the most American parts.
• Support the most American factory jobs.
According to the 2018 index, the Jeep Cherokee, assembled in Belvidere, Illinois, is the most American vehicle! Jeep is a division of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA), an Italian corporation headquartered in London, which underscores the global, interconnected nature of the automotive industry. The Cherokee comes in as the most American-made car of 2018 due to its high domestic-parts content, U.S.-manufactured engines and transmissions, and FCA’s large U.S. factory workforce. Many Americans prefer buying American based on a Cars.com survey of U.S. consumers. In fact, before buying a car, two-thirds of Americans say they first find out where a car is built or where its
automaker is headquartered.
More than eight out of 10 consumers believe that buying American-made vehicles will create more jobs in the United States. And 28 percent of respondents would only consider an American manufacturer when purchasing a vehicle. The American-Made Index ranks cars based on five factors: assembly location, domestic-parts content, U.S. factory employment, engine sourcing and transmission sourcing. Cars.com analyzed more than 100 U.S.-built vehicles to arrive at the top 10.
