Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky this summer celebrated its Camry, the best-selling car in America for 14 consecutive years, being crowned again as the most “American-Made” vehicle by Cars.com. For the second year in a row and sixth time overall, the Toyota Camry claims the top position on Cars.com’s American-Made Index.
The index rates vehicles built and bought in the United States based on percentage of parts considered domestic under federal regulations, whether the car is assembled in the U.S., and U.S. sales. Models with a domestic parts content rating below 75 percent are disqualified along with models built exclusively outside the U.S. or models soon to be discontinued without a U.S.-built successor. According to NHTSA, the U.S.-sold domestic content for Camry, built in Georgetown, Kentucky, is 75 percent.
