 FCA US, Ford and GM Autos Undisputed Industry Leaders in 2019 Kogod Made in America Auto Index

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Governor Matt Blunt, president of the American Automotive Policy Council, issued the following statement on American University’s 2019 Kogod Made In America Auto Index:

 “FCA US, Ford, and General Motors are once again dominating the Kogod Made in America Auto Index.  The 2019 analysis shows FCA US, Ford and General Motors captured all of the Top 10 vehicles, all but one of the Top 20, and 28 of the Top 30 vehicles.  It also shows the three U.S. automakers account for 90 percent of the top sedans, SUVs and pickups made in America.  This is further evidence that American automakers and their employees are committed to driving new jobs and increased manufacturing activity in the US. 

“The Kogod Made in America Index shows FCA US, Ford, and General Motors are assembling more of their vehicles here and using more domestic parts.  This is good news for the families who rely on a robust U.S. auto industry.”
