Wrangler, Cherokee earn top slots on Cars.com American-Made Index

Jeep vehicles have landed the top two spots on this year's Cars.com American-Made Index, a release from Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said.

The top slot went to Jeep Wrangler, with the second position going to Jeep Cherokee.

"As a descendant of the military Jeep that helped the Allies win World War II, the Jeep Wrangler already has strong American credentials," Joe Wiesenfelder, Cars.com's executive editor, said in the release. "In Cars.com's 2017 American-Made Index, the Wrangler's American roots prove as deep as its image. The SUV has long been a Cars.com favorite for off-roaders and sun-lovers."

Cars.com evaluates vehicles based on criteria such as assembly location, number of domestic parts and factory employment within the United States. Wrangler's domestic-parts content was among the highest at 74 percent for the two-door model and 75 percent for Wrangler four-door. The Wrangler is put together in Toledo, Ohio.

"We are delighted to celebrate America's most patriotic day with the news that Cars.com's American-Made Index has ranked Jeep Wrangler and Cherokee as the two overall most-American vehicles for 2017," Mike Manley, head of Jeep Brand – FCA Global, said in the release.  "On this Fourth of July holiday we salute the dedicated employees who build Wrangler and Cherokee, as well as the loyal Jeep owners who drive them."
