Honda Dominates Cars.com American-Made IndexⓇ
Each year, Cars.com puts out a list that ranks the best American-made cars and SUVs called the American-Made Index Ⓡ*. Cars.com evaluates each model based on assembly location, parts content, engine origins, transmission origins, and U.S. manufacturing workforce. Cars.com uses a 100-point scale, which groups related variants under the same nameplate and platform but will separate hybrid or electric models. They use a combination of data from the automakers, Automotive News, analysis of vehicles in the Cars.com inventory, and in-person dealership audits.
Which Honda Models Made the American-Made Index Ⓡ?
This year, Honda had ten of its models make the list, which is the highest amount for any automaker. Here’s the complete list of the Honda cars and SUVs that made the American-Made Index Ⓡ:
- 2021 Honda Ridgeline-6th Place
- 2021 Honda Odyssey-7th Place
- 2021 Honda Pilot-8th Place

More than two-thirds of the Honda vehicles sold in the U.S. in 2020 were made in America at these plants.
