Due to globalization and outsourcing, cars can be assembled across multiple countries. The cars listed are assembled in the United States, and at least 75 percent of the parts used in those vehicles are domestic.

Determining whether a car is American-made depends on the buyer. Certain car brands, such as Toyota, are seen as foreign brands because of where the company originated, but it has locations in the United States and uses mainly domestic parts for certain cars. Brands such as Ford are seen as American because they originated in the United States, but Ford has locations overseas, and some of its cars are primarily assembled there. The Ford F-150, which is considered the most American-made car by multiple sources as of 2014, has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States for over 30 years.
