Close your eyes and picture the most iconic American car. Did you imagine the Jeep Wrangler? Yeah, so did the team here at Rockrock CDJR. And so did Cars.com, who recently finished its annual American-Made Index. The study looks at various factors to determine which contemporary vehicle is the most American.
This year, the Jeep Wrangler and the four-door Jeep Wrangler Unlimited were chosen as the most American cars on the market. The Wrangler style has always been a classic and recognizable one, associated with American history. But the Cars.com study has nothing to do with iconic appearances. The five factors that go into this study are engine and transmission origin, location of assembly, number of domestic parts, and employment numbers.
American Built Parts
As it stands, every single Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited engine is built in America. That fact earned the Wrangler big points in the American-Made Index test. Most of the Wrangler transmissions are made here too, and nearly three-quarters of the Wrangler parts are domestic.
It just goes to show that the Wrangler is just as American on the inside as it is on the outside. Buy a Jeep Wrangler from Rothrock CDJR, and you’re not only buying a high-performance, adventurous SUV, but you’re essentially buying local too, and that always feels good.
