The 2015 Toyota Camry Is The Most American-Made Car

Nearly 30 years ago, when Chevrolet was selling, “The Heartbeat of America,” did anyone think the Toyota Camry would turn out to be more American in 2015 than any domestic-labeled car?

According to Cars.com‘s 2015 American-Made Index, the Toyota Camry is the most American car for 2015, produced in both Georgetown, Kentucky and Lafyette, Indiana. Toyota also claimed the number two spot on the list with the Sienna minivan, also made in Indiana. Rival minivan Honda Odyssey was also represented here.

The Ford F-150, which topped the list last year, didn’t even make the cut this year because its domestic parts content fell below the 75 percent threshold in 2015 to meet the Cars.com requirement. In fact, GM was the only domestic brand to land here, with the Chevrolet Corvette (Bowling Green, Ky.) and the crossover triplets from Lansing, Michigan – Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave – being among the most American of cars.

The study points to a trend of fewer and fewer cars with more than 75 percent domestic content, with just seven models qualifying this year, according to Cars.com, down from 29 just five years ago. 

Today, it’s harder than ever to determine what makes an American car “American.” If you look at where all of the pieces come from and where they’re all being put together, the Camry is arguably the car that screams “apple pie” and “baseball” the loudest these days.
