Purchasing an American car has traditionally been viewed as a part of patriotism, while the definition of "buying American" has become gradually blurred over time.
Some cars bearing American brand names, such as Buick, are made overseas, while certain Toyotas and Volkswagens are reassembled in America.
Opting for a domestic brand over an overseas brand may still signify a sense of delight among patriotic Americans, even though being made in America is not special to American brands.
A recent study conducted by iSeeCars examined over 200,000 used cars ranging from model years 2018 to 2022, sold between May 2022 and April 2023.
By tallying the number of vehicles from American carmakers in each state, the study determined the percentage share of American vehicles and utilized it to rank the states accordingly.
Michigan leads the pack in purchasing the record American cars, accounting for 76.6% of the state's car share.
Among the top 10 states with the highest number of American-made cars, 1 is located in the Pacific, 2 are in the Rocky Mountain region, and 7 are in the Midwest.
Hawaii has the lowest number of American-made cars. The state exhibits a preference for Japanese cars, which can be attributed to its highly diverse people.
Whether you're in the market for a reliable truck, a cutting-edge electric car, or a luxurious SUV, there are American vehicles available to cater to your specific requirements.
