The Best American-Made Cars Aren’t Always From American Brands

Some car shoppers prefer the comfort of heated and ventilated front seats, a crystal-clear audio system, and the serenity provided by a whisper-quiet engine. For others, knowing the vehicle they’re considering is built in the U.S., like the 2018 Ford Expedition, ranks high on their list of priorities.

If you thought this would limit your choices to tire-shredding muscle cars and cargo-hauling pickup trucks, think again. The car world is more complex than ever before, and some of the best American-made cars and trucks aren’t from American brands at all. Honda, Toyota, Mercedes-Benz, and BMW all make the grade, despite traditionally being thought of as import brands.

Luckily for you, our rankings turn a blind eye to labels and badges when it comes to finding you the very best cars, trucks, and SUVs for your money. In the process, and based purely on merit, some vehicles naturally rise to the top of their respective category. How’s that for automotive democracy in action?

We’ve taken 23 of our highest-ranking vehicles that also happen to be built in the U.S. and combined them into one convenient list, giving you the freedom to choose the perfect car for all of your needs.
