They narrowly beat out Ford, who’s new Ranger tops the per-vehicle list at 70% TDC, so much so that they had to measure it to the decimal point and it was exactly 3%. However, GM claimed second and a triple tie for third in the per-vehicle list, with the Camaro at 66% in second, and the Corvette C8, Chevy Colorado, and GMC Canyon tied for third at 64%.
And, if one were to add-in Canadian parts, as they state in the outline at the start, you can see a nearly 15-20% jump across most vehicles assembled in the good ol’ USA.
The top 3, in order of TDC per USA made car, are GM in front, Ford a hair’s width behind, and Fiat Chrysler Automotive 6% behind GM in third.
So when GM claims that the Corvette, in any guise, is America’s sports car, now there is substantial and quantifiable evidence to support it!
