American Built Cars
The car industry was born in America – and with Independence Day right around the corner, we want to take time to celebrate those American built cars, trucks and SUVs. The list could get pretty long, but we narrowed it down to a couple of the top cars from each brand that has factories in the US.
The Chrysler 200 factory is located just North of Detroit at the Sterling Heights Assembly Plant. You can check out a virtual tour of the entire facility here.
The 2016 Chrysler 200 is designed with a dynamic stance and a wind-swept profile. The wheel to body proportions are aggressive for a coupe and features the most powerful engine in its class. With an available 295-horsepower behind the V6 engine and a 9-speed automatic transmission, this US built car will have you feeling completely in control.
The Ford Mustang has been around since 1963 and is assembled at the Flat Rock Assembly Pant in Detroit. Normally cameras aren’t allowed in the plant, but one person got special access – you can check out his virtual tour below.
The 2017 Mustang is an iconic car, built to grab attention and put the driver in control. This American built car has four different engines to choose from, the most powerful of which offers 526 horsepower in a 5.2L V8 engine. The newest features include Track Apps that let you track performance metrics instantly right on the dash.
Honda has 12 manufacturing plants in the US. The most recent one opened in Marysville, Ohio in 2016. Those 12 plants produce 1.27 million cars and light trucks, 1.43 million automobile engines and more than 2 million general purpose engines. The Honda Accord is assembled in Marysville, OH while the CR-V is made in East Liberty, OH. The Odyssey, Pilot and Ridgeline are all made in Lincoln, AL. and the Civic sedan is made in Greensburg, IN.
One Honda model, the Accord, was built to look forward. It features Honda Sensing Technology to keep you and your passengers safe. That includes a Collision Mitigating Braking System, Lane Keeping Assist System and a Road Departure Mitigation System. Plus, you can remain connected with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and HondaLink; you will be able to access your phone right on the touchscreen with these available features.
Toyota has manufacturing plants in nearly 20 different countries, with seven of those plants located in the US. Those plants are located in Mississippi, Kentucky, Texas, Indiana, Alabama and West Virginia. The Toyota Motor Manufacturing Kentucky plant is in Georgetown. It’s where the Camry, Camry Hybrid, Avalon, Avalon Hybrid and Venza are all built. Check out the Camry as one of our top American built cars.
The 2017 Toyota Camry has an aggressive design that demands respect at every corner. With a few added sporty features, this car delivers bold performance that makes driving more enjoyable. It has sport seats with quality upholstery as well as paddle shifters and a roomy interior.
