Jeep Wrangler and Cherokee are “Most American” Vehicles
Brad Sillars, Cars.com
The Jeep Wrangler and Jeep Cherokee have been named the top two “Most American” vehicles on Cars.com’s American-Made Index (AMI) for 2017!
“As a descendant of the military Jeep that helped the Allies win the World War II, the Jeep Wrangler already has strong American credentials,” Cars.com Executive Editor Joe Wiesenfelder said in a press release. “In Car.com’s 2017 American Made Index, the Wrangler’s American roots prove as deep as its image. The SUV has long been a Cars.com favorite for off-roaders and sun-lovers.”
Cars.com assessed its list of vehicles in five criteria: assembly location, domestic parts content, country of engine origin, country of transmission origin and U.S. factory employment. The Wrangler’s domestic parts content for the two-door model received 74 percent on the AMI and the four-door Wrangler Unlimited scored a 75 percent. The Cherokee scored 70 percent.
The Jeep Wrangler is built at Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ Toledo Assembly Complex in Toledo, Ohio, and more than 90 percent of components that make up the Wrangler are sourced within 1,500 miles of the plant. The Cherokee was built at the same facility until April 2017 when production moved to an updated plant in Belvidere, Illinois.
