NHTSA percentage made in the U.S.: 72% (15% Mexico)
When Fiat-owned Chrysler began cutting models after its bailout, there was no way the Wrangler was going anywhere. The closest relative to the Jeep that America's fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers drove during World War II, the four-wheel-drive Wrangler is one of the few remaining American icons that maintains the "American" portion of that label. Yes, 15% of its parts are made in Mexico, but it's been one of Jeep's steadiest performers and has seen demand increase from 82,044 vehicles sold in the U.S. in 2008 to 141,000 sold last year -- which is better than the Wrangler's 119,243 pre-recession sales in 2007.
