Just because a car is assembled in America, it does not truly mean that it was made in America. After all, these days it is just about impossible to find a made-in-America that has been built solely out of parts that were likewise made in the US.

However, if you are a buy-local lad or lass, you want to keep your dollars close to home. If you are looking for an American car, these five cars are, according to, the most made-in-America cars you can buy:

  • The Toyota Sienna is the fifth most made-in-America vehicle on the list. Put together in Princeton, Indiana, the Sienna shows that Toyota is serious about its promise to make vehicles in the lands that they are sold as much as possible.
  • The fourth car on the list is another Japanese model, the Honda Odyssey. This eight-seat minivan is made in Lincoln, Alabama.
  • The Dodge Avenger is the first American vehicle to make the made-in-America list. However, since its parent company, Chrysler, is now owned by Fiat, an Italian carmaker, it is not all that American anymore. The mid-size sedan is assembled in Sterling Heights, Michigan, and is, as its spot on this list testifies to, made up of many domestically made parts.
  • The mighty Toyota Camry is not only the top-selling car in the US, it is also the second most made-in-America vehicle in the nation. It is made in Georgetown, Kentucky, and Lafayette, Indiana.
  • And, the most made-in-America vehicle in the US is the Ford F-150, which also happens to be the most popular pickup in the nation. Ford makes its F-150 in Dearborn, Michigan and Claycomo, Missouri.

All in all, 60% of the most American-made vehicles are from Japanese manufacturers – crazy, right?
