Four Toyota Models Placed in “Most American” Index

You know how in the old days Americans were buying only local manufactured cars to sustain the country’s economy, being highly reserved over buying an import vehicle.

But since overseas manufacturers have opened subsidiary factories in the Land of Freedom hiring workers, consumers can easily buy import brands without living with the guilt that Butch working in the shed to make Corvettes all day long won’t have lobster for dinner. He will, because his son probably works at Toyota’s plant.

Clearing this out, Cars.com made its Most American (vehicle of course) list recently, considering the amount of American-made parts are used on each vehicle, where it is assembled and how many units are sold each year.

While the Ford F-150 dethroned the Toyota Camry this year (just because it sold a bit better), we can see that the list contains three more “American” Toyotas after the Camry on second place: the Sienna made at Princeton, Ind., Tundra from San Antonio, Texas, and the Avalon assembled in Georgetown, Kentucky.
