Honda Dominates the 2018 American-Made Vehicles List

For many, buying an American-made vehicle and supporting the U.S economy is an important factor to consider when purchasing a new car. At Scholfield Honda, we are proud to announce that four out of the top 10 most American-made vehicles of 2018 are made by Japanese brand Honda, according to an annual report by Cars.com!

The brand of the vehicle isn’t the only part of the equation that makes it an American-made vehicle. The index measures which cars are manufactured in America, which have the most American parts and which support the most American factory jobs. This includes an assessment of the percentage of parts in each vehicle that are made in the U.S., the origin of the engines and transmissions and the location where each vehicle is assembled.

The Honda Odyssey (ranked second), for example, is built in Lincoln, Alabama and is made of 75% domestic parts. Compare that to the Buick, that is considered an American brand vehicle, is manufactured in China with only 2% domestic parts. The other Hondas that made the list were the Honda Ridgeline (third), Honda Pilot SUV (sixth) and Acura MDX midsize SUV (seventh). These are all made in Alabama on a shared platform to simplify manufacturing. The Acura MDX is also made in East Liberty, Ohio.

If you're looking to purchase a car that supports the U.S economy, it’s important to look beyond the brand and assembly location.
