Who would have guessed the Toyota Camry, one of the best-selling cars in the United States, was also assembled here using more domestic parts than any other model? It's true, at least according to the Cars.com American-Made Index (AMI).

Every year, Cars.com consolidates data about where and with what new vehicles are manufactured. Vehicles are only eligible for AMI ranking if they are assembled in the United States, with at least 75 percent American-made parts. For 2016, only eight models even qualified.

Of those eight models, two were Toyotas -- the Camry at the top of the list, and the Toyota Sienna in third.

The surprisingly star-spangled Camry is assembled at Toyota Motor Manufacturing, Kentucky, Inc. (TMMK), the automaker's largest manufacturing plant in the world. Its annual capacity is 550,000 vehicles and 600,000 engines, and it employs a full-time staff of around 8,000 people.

Between its 10 assembly and manufacturing facilities, Toyota has nearly 35,000 direct employees in the U.S., not to mention indirectly creating jobs for people like us, at DCH Toyota of Torrance, who sell their products, and the skilled technicians of our service center.
