In a global economy, the concept of an “American” car is not easily, clearly or irrefutably definable. Years ago, the only vehicle considered an American car was one designed and manufactured in the United States by a U.S.-based company that employed workers primarily in the USA. Now that the auto industry has become a global enterprise with manufacturing and parts sourcing from all over the world, traditional American-brand vehicles are often built outside U.S. borders, while many European and Asian-based car companies build vehicles here in America. In light of this ambiguity, let’s focus on the best-selling models wearing the badges of American brands. As a clear indicator of what U.S. shoppers prefer, only three of the models on this list are passenger cars. The following vehicles are ranked as the most popular American cars based on U.S. sales during the first half of 2020, as reported by auto manufacturers.
