Traverse is number one American made vehicle
DETROIT — For the fourth consecutive year, Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac vehicles are the leaders of the Made in America Automotive Index produced by American University’s Kogod School of Business.
The Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia together tied for No. 1, while 17 other General Motors vehicles ranked in the Top 10.
The index is authored by Frank DuBois, a global supply chain management expert and professor at American University in Washington, D.C. More comprehensive than other studies of its kind, the Kogod index ranks models based on seven weighted data points including several factors unaddressed by the American Automotive Labeling Act (AALA), the basis for “made in America” automotive studies.
