Jeep Wrangler Takes First Place in 2017 American-Made Index Presented by Cars.com

July 12th, 2017 by

Every year, the editors of Cars.com put together a critical analysis that determines which of the latest light-duty passenger models built in the United States are the “most American.” This analysis, known as the American-Made Index, observes five factors including but not limited to the location of assembly and the origin of the engine and transmission. For 2017, the winner was none other than the Jeep Wrangler.

Here at Beck Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we find the news unsurprising considering the iconic role of the Jeep in relation to U.S. history. Founded back in the early 1940s in response to WWII efforts, this SUV is in every sense of the word a national champion. Assembled in Toledo, Ohio, with 74 percent of its parts as well as both its engine and transmission domestically derived, it earned the highest total score, placing it above competitors like the Ford Taurus and GMC Acadia.

In other words, if you want a vehicle made in the U.S.A., then choose the Jeep Wrangler. Visit us today at Palatka dealership to get yours today!
