List of Top 2022 Fords Made in America Along with Lincoln Corsair: Study

55 sec read

The automotive industry has become a highly complex global mechanism, which depends on hundreds and thousands of suppliers and satellite companies. This means that even if you buy a car labeled Made in US, not all of its components come from the United States. There are now studies tracking which vehicles have the highest percentage of American-made parts. And the results for 2022 are in.

Just like every previous year, the American University Kogod School of Business creates an index that reflects the Americanization of every vehicle in the US market. For 2022, the Lincoln Corsair tops the charts with 72 percent of its components made in the United States or Canada and U.S.-built engines. The same results refer to the standard Corsair combustion and Corsair plug-in hybrid. Final assembly, engine production, and transmission production for these two vehicles are all located in the US.

Overall, many automakers have increased their US content in the past 12 months, the study said. However, compared to 2015 results, Stellantis (formerly FCA), Ford, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai/Kia, Nissan, Toyota and Volkswagen all saw declines in their results. Meanwhile, last year’s vehicle with the most number of American-made components, the Ford Mustang, took 22nd place for 2022 due to the switch to a transmission made in Mexico.

Other notable findings include Tesla’s strong results with 5 cars in the top 10 list, including the Model 3 Performance and Model Y (5th), as well as the Model 3 Lond Range (2nd). In comparison, in 2013, the first year in which Tesla was included in the study, the electric vehicle maker ranked 14th.
