2017 Jeep Wrangler & Jeep Cherokee Snag Top Honors for High American-Parts Content

The winner of the 2017 Cars.com American-Made Index is the 2017 Jeep Wrangler, and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which we're never quite sure whether to count as a separate model. Both are built at the same plant in Toledo, Ohio, where they claim 90 percent of the models' parts are sourced within 1,500 miles.

That statistic is certainly feasible—Cars.com has confirmed that 74 percent of the Jeep Wrangler's components come from the United States, and as a Great Lakes state, Ohio is a stone's throw (or cargo barge) away from Canada, accounting for the remaining 16 percent.

Trailing the legendary off-roading SUVs, the 2017 Jeep Cherokee ranked second on the AMI, boasting 70 percent domestic parts content. It was also assembled in Toledo during the compiling of this year's AMI, though it has recently moved to Belvidere, Illinois.

All three of these SUVs make a great choice for Great Falls families. The Wrangler is a classic body-on-frame vehicle for ruggedness over bumpy terrain, perfect for the adventurous mountaineer, while the Cherokee offers sleek modern styling and comfort, with available four-wheel drive systems to give it an advantage over competing SUVs where all-weather capability is a priority.
