How is the 2016 Toyota Camry the most American Car

What makes Camry an American car?

The fact that Toyota is a Japanese-based company shouldn’t be much a surprise to anybody. However, in the several decades that the automaker has been operating in the United States, it has expanded it’s operation several fold. Toyota employs tens of thousands of people across the country in various functions within the automotive industry from vehicle assembly, to design and development and many suppliers of all kinds. Within the boarders of the U.S. one car reigns above all others, the Toyota Camry. 2016 marks the 14th consecutive year the nameplate has been the bestselling car in its class and the second straight year the Camry has been named the most American car sold in the United States.

How can the Camry be an American car?

For the moment, forget government regulations and labelling conventions. The Toyota Camry stands atop the list of most American car because of what it represents to the country at large including Toyota employees and Toyota consumers. Leading automotive platform, Cars.com, completed a study which revealed, yet again, how important the Camry is to America buyers. Also appearing on the influential website’s list was the Toyota Sienna minivan.

“This recognition from Cars.com is a tribute to Toyota employees, not only those at the plant who build the Camry, but the broader Toyota team who design, engineer, market and finance the vehicle in the United States,” Bob Carter, Toyota senior vice president of automotive operations said in Toyota press release. “We also support local suppliers and economies, and we have invested more than $6 billion into our Kentucky operations alone, which is growing with our new production engineering campus under construction there.”
