Cadillac CTS
Assembled: Lansing, Mich.
NHTSA percentage made in the U.S.: 70%
MSRP: $35,915  

The base model comes with a 270-horsepower, 3.0-liter V6 engine but can be bumped up to a 318-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 just for kicks. The standard-bearer of American luxury vehicles also throws in a whole lot of perks, including headlights that adapt to your speed and turning angle, rear backup camera, leather seating, wood trim, a pop-up 8-inch GPS screen that connects to voice control and a 10-speaker Bose stereo system. If you're willing to splurge for the $65,000 CTS-V, your reward is a 556-horsepower, 6.2-liter V8 engine that takes you from zero to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds. This beast was a problem child for General Motors ( GM) and the unions when sales dropped by more than 20,000 vehicles during the economic downturn, but CTS sales have since accelerated from 38,817 in 2009 to more than 55,000 just last year.
