What is the Most American Car?

Posted on 04 December 2012 by Adam Kaslikowski

If you have an old-fashioned drunk uncle (or ARE the drunk uncle) you may want to have him leave the room. Or at least not look at this screen; yeah, that would probably also work.  The reason you’re being a screen hog is because a Japanese car company currently makes the most “American” car on sale today. Gasp!

You see, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, 85% of the Toyota Avalon is American made, which bests all other manufacturers allowing Toyota to claim the title of Most ‘Muhrican. To anyone who has even attempted to follow the auto industry, this should come as no major surprise. Still, I wouldn’t be surprised to see some Senate investigation into how GM could have let this happen, especially since Obama is the CEO (or something).

Whether you’re a Senator or not, lets just all remember that this Avalon mean American jobs and American economies in American Towns, where you can eat American cheese. To hear some great background and analysis on this industry trend, check out NPR’s Weekend Edition who did a story you’ll find here. It is now safe to switch your screen back to a non-soccer sport and invite your drunk uncle back into the room.
