  • Cars.com has released a list of the most American cars from the 2020 model year based on factors like the location of its factory, where the parts are sourced from, and the number of US employees relative to the company's "footprint."

  • The list is topped by the Ford Ranger.

  • Automakers like Honda, Tesla, Chevrolet, and Toyota were also included in the top 30.

  • Three Tesla models — the Model S, Model 3, and Model X — were included in the top 10.

Cars.com has released its annual list of the most American-made cars, which includes automakers such as Ford, Honda, and Tesla.

According to a survey by the website, 70% of potential car buyers view the vehicle's impact on the country's economy as a "significant or deciding factor" for the purchase, an increase from 66% last year. It also found that 40% of shoppers are now "more likely" to buy a car manufactured in the US amid the pandemic, and 26% of surveyors — a rise from 18% last year — said it would be "unpatriotic" not to.

 The vehicles on Cars.com's 2020 list were selected and ranked based on how positively the production of the car contributes to the US economy, whether it be the location of the factory, where the parts are made and sourced, or the number of US employees "relative to the automaker's footprint," according to Cars.com

There are about 350 cars available on the market for the 2020 model year, but only 91 qualified for the Cars.com's AMI, according to a statement by Cars.com's senior consumer affairs and vehicle evaluations editor Kelsey Mays.

The list is topped by the Ford Ranger, which has coincidentally seen a 123% increase in 2020 sales compared to 2019, causing a low inventory of Rangers following factory shutdowns amid the pandemic, according iSeeCars CEO Phong Ly from iSeeCar's list of 20 car models with the most 2019 surplus inventory still left unsold.
