For the second year in a row, Cars.com name Jeep Cherokee the “Most American” vehicle. Every year, the website releases its annual American-Made Index (AMI), Where vehicles are ranked based on various variables. You’re going to be happy to learn that like last year, the 2019 Jeep Cherokee has made it to the top of the list.

Cars.com takes into consideration five main factors while ranking the most American cars. These factors include assembly location, engine sourcing, transmission sourcing, domestic parts content as determined by the AALA (or the American Automobile Labeling Act), and factory jobs that each U.S plant of the automaker provides.

The 2018 Jeep Cherokee was also top of the list last year. Assembled at the Belvidere Assembly Plant in Belvidere, Illinois, once again impressed the folks at Cars.com, taking home the number one rank for this year’s brand new 2019 model.

According to Kelsey Mays, who serves as the Senior Consumer Affairs Editor at Cars.com, the Jeep Cherokee has topped the American-Made Index yet again this year “thanks to high scores” on all the five main factors considered for the index.

Jim Morrison, who is the Head of Jeep Brand North America, says that the company is grateful to its “dedicated employees” who build the vehicle and the “loyal Jeep owners”.

So if you want to buy a 2019 Jeep Cherokee, you can feel confident knowing they made your vehicle in the USA.
