American brands dominate the top 10 on Cars.com’s American-Made Index for 2020, with the new Ford Ranger taking the top spot.
The annual report combines several factors, including where the vehicles and their parts are manufactured, along with how many U.S. jobs each vehicle produced supports.
The official data lumps U.S. and Canadian parts content into one pool, but the study attempts to offset this by only considering vehicles with final assembly in the U.S. and giving extra weight to the manufacturing locations of engines and transmissions, two major components. Low volume, fleet-only and heavy duty models are excluded from the report.
The Michigan-built Ranger is followed by the Jeep Cherokee, which was number one last year. Tesla, participating for the first time, placed three vehicles in the top 10, with the Model S and Model 3 rated at third and fourth, respectively.
Honda is the only non-U.S. brand represented. The Japanese automaker's Lincoln, Alabama-built Odyssey, Ridgeline and Passport fill spots five through seven, ahead of the Chevrolet Corvette, Tesla Model X and Chevrolet Colorado.
