Honda led all automakers with five Honda and Acura models in the top 10 and nine models ranking among the top 15 on the Cars.com 2023 American-Made Index®. Based on its longstanding commitment to build* products in America, Honda has consistently been a leader in the number of vehicles making the top of the list since Cars.com created its American-Made Index in 2006.

For the 2023 American-Made Index, top 10 models included the Alabama-made Honda Passport sport utility vehicle, Ridgeline pickup, Odyssey minivan and the Ohio-made Acura MDX and RDX sport-utility vehicles while the Honda Accord, Acura Integra, Acura TLX and Honda Pilot placed in the top 15.

All five of the Honda and Acura models in the top 10 — Honda Passport, Ridgeline, Odyssey and Acura MDX and RDX — were designed and developed by Honda engineers in the U.S.

The Honda models in the top 10 and the engines that power them are produced exclusively at the Honda Alabama Auto Plant in Lincoln, Alabama, with the transmissions produced at the nearby Honda transmission plant in Tallapoosa, Georgia. The Acura models in the top 10 are produced exclusively at the East Liberty Auto Plant in Ohio, with engines from the Anna (Ohio) Engine Plant and transmissions from Georgia.
