Here at Kings Toyota, we’re proud to be able to say that Cars.com has, for the second year in a row and sixth time overall, given the Toyota Camry the top spot on its “American Made Index.” So that means America's best-selling car is still the most "American Made."

 

 

The index takes into account the percentage of parts considered ‘domestic’ under federal regulations, whether the vehicle is assembled in the U.S., and U.S. sales. According to the NHSTA, the U.S.-sold domestic content for the Camry is 75 percent.

The Toyota Camry is assembled at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc. in Georgetown, KY. More the 270 U.S. suppliers provide the content for the current generation of Camrys. In addition to manufacturing, a significant amount of design and engineering work for the Camry and other Toyota models took place in the United States.

“This recognition from Cars.com is a tribute to Toyota employees, not only those at the plant who build the Camry, but the broader Toyota team who design, engineer, market and finance the vehicle in the United States. We also support local suppliers and economies, and we have invested more than $6 billion into our Kentucky operations alone, which is growing with our new production engineering campus under construction there.” –Bob Carter, Toyota senior vice president of automotive operations

It makes us proud to represent a brand that has focused on manufacturing America’s best-selling car in America, using predominantly domestic parts.
