Most American Cars On The Road
The big story here isn't that an domestic-brand vehicle topped the list of the most American-made cars for just the second time in six years. Rather, it's that, according to Cars.com, only ten vehicles currently in production are eligible to be on this list. This means that every car you can buy right now, with the exception of the ones in this gallery, now has less than 75 percent American-made parts. Buying a car, it seems, is truly a multinational endeavor.
Cars.com underwent its annual survey -- which takes into account how many parts in the car are made in the U.S., where the vehicle is assembled and how many cars are sold here -- and named the Ford F-150 the Most American vehicle for 2014. From 2009 to 2012, that honor went to the Toyota Camry, which is built in Kentucky and Indiana.
Head on through to see the entire list of the most American-made vehicles.
