Just because a car has a Detroit brand name doesn't mean it's all-American.

To to figure out which cars really are the "most American," analysts at the automotive Web site Cars.com looked at where the vehicles are manufactured and how many domestic-made parts they use. The rankings also take U.S. sales into consideration, since top-selling models should boost American employment.
