When it comes to the auto industry, what exactly does the phrase “most-American” mean? Online car research site Cars.com began ranking the “most-American” cars and trucks more than a decade ago but last year had to make some changes to their metrics as globalization of the supply chain meant only three models could have qualified using the original criteria. Jeep Wrangler topped the list in 2017, but with an all-new version of the SUV this year, will it even qualify? Or will a foreign automaker pull an upset and top the list?

Joe Wiesenfelder will discuss the concept of “most-American” and reveal who topped the list for the Most American Made Car.  He’ll also talk about what this means for those shopping for a new car and why it matters, including all new insights from recently surveyed consumers.
