Two Jeep Models Named Top “Most American" Vehicles
Earlier in July, Cars.com released the results of their annual American-Made Index, and two Jeep models sit on top of the roster as the Jeep Wrangler ranked first with the Jeep Cherokee coming in right behind in second.
Vehicles are evaluated on five criteria, including domestic parts content, country of engine origin, country of transmission origin, assembly location and United States factory employment figures. The Wrangler, which is assembled in Toledo, Ohio, placed among the top for domestic parts content with 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, stated, “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.”
