Buying American: 10 Automobiles Made in the USA


Assembly Line

These days, trying to find a pair of shoes bearing the Made in the USA label is about as difficult as finding a Columbian cocaine kingpin with a heart of gold. Sadly, a lot of goods that used to be assembled by American workers have been outsourced to take advantage of low-cost overseas labor. Of course, it’s more than just sneakers and sweatshirts that are made in foreign factories—a lot of cars are built outside of our borders, too.

However, not all car-building is taking place in maquiladoras. There are still vehicles assembled here in the states. Here’s a list of 10 models:

  1. Ford Mustang: Assembled in Flat Rock, Michigan
  2. Ford F-150: Assembled in Claycomo, Missouri and Dearborn, Michigan
  3. Chevy Malibu: Assembled in Kansas City, Kansas and Orion Township, Michigan
  4. Chevy Silverado: Assembled in Fort Wayne, Indiana; Pontiac, Michigan and Flint, Michigan
  5. Dodge Avenger: Assembled in Sterling Heights, Michigan
  6. Dodge Ram 1500: Assembled in Fenton, Missouri and Warren, Michigan
  7. Jeep Wrangler: Assembled in Toledo, Ohio
  8. Toyota Camry: Assembled in Georgetown, Kentucky and Lafayette, Indiana
  9. Honda Civic Sedan: Assembled in Greensburg, Indiana
  10. Hyundai Santa Fe: Assembled in Montgomery, Alabama

Many more cars, trucks and SUVs are built here in the states. Check out the complete list at NYTimes.com.
