4 Alabama Honda vehicles score in Top 10 of American-made index

Four Alabama-made vehicles have been named in the top 10 of the 2019 American-Made Index, a list of new models that contribute the most to the U.S. economy, compiled by the digital automotive marketplace

All four are built at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama’s $2.6 billion, 4,500-worker auto assembly plant in Talladega County. The Odyssey minivan was ranked No. 2, followed by the Ridgeline pickup at No. 3, the Passport SUV at No. 4 and the Pilot SUV at No. 7.

The index, issued annually since 2006, is based on criteria that includes manufacturing plants, parts sourcing and factory jobs.

The Jeep Cherokee SUV, assembled in Illinois., tops this year’s index, which includes a total of 15 vehicles. Nine of them are produced by Japan-based automakers: seven Hondas (including its luxury brand Acura) and two Toyotas.
