There’s nothing more American than purchasing American made products. While Toyota may not be an American brand its Toyota Camry is the most “American” car in the country. Cars.com named the Camry as the most American car for 2012.  Yet again the 2013 Camry in Birmingham and the U.S. is literally the more American than its competition including the Ford F-150. For the fourth straight year in a row (2009-2012) the Camry has had the most U.S. sourced parts, U.S. production and U.S. sales.

Most people tend to think of the big three dealers out of Detroit as being the most American. That however, is no longer the case. This is in large part to foreign auto makers building and designing in the U.S because it’s cheaper. It’s a cycle consisting of auto makers choosing America to build which leads to more U.S workers building them and then more U.S. consumers purchasing them.

Limbaugh Toyota has a giant inventory of the “American” made 2013 Camry and the starting price is an incredible $18,888. That’s a leather and automatic with no extra charge plus all the standard bells and whistles. It’s hard not to choose Toyota over Ford now that you know just how American the Camry is. No wonder it’s the most popular vehicle on Birmingham roads right now.

The new Toyota Camry is built in Georgetown, Ky. and Lafayette, Ind. To be considered in the American-Made Index a vehicle has to have 75% North American content. Also taken into consideration are where it’s built and how their U.S. sales rank. This is because a small manufacturer could produce the majority of a vehicle in the U.S. but due to its small size it doesn’t generate enough U.S. jobs.

So if you want an American made car in Central Alabama then consider taking a 2013 Limbaugh Toyota Camry test drive today. You can drive with pride knowing it was built in America, created American jobs and helped the American economy.

NOTES: Cars.com’s AMI rates vehicles built and bought in the U.S. Factors include where parts come from (percentage of domestic content), whether it’s assembled in the U.S. and sales. Disqualified: models with a domestic parts content rating below 75%, models built exclusively outside the U.S. or models soon to be discontinued. “Domestic-parts content” stems from the 1992 American Automobile Labeling Act, which groups the U.S. and Canada under the same “domestic” umbrella. It’s one of the law’s imperfections, but the AALA is the only domestic-parts labeling system car shoppers can find on every new car sold in America.
