For those who care about American Made

This year's report just came out:


"GM Proud to be American Made

 July 6, 2017
Tags: Home, Top News, Grow Our Brands, Product

070617_Kogod

General Motors once again dominated the Top 10 list in the Made in America Automotive Index produced by American University’s Kogod School of Business. The Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia and Chevrolet Traverse tied for first place, and five other GM vehicles — Chevrolet Corvette, Colorado and Malibu and Cadillac ATS and CT6 — made the Top 10 list.

Since the study began in 2013, GM vehicles have not only led the industry with the most vehicles on the Top 10 list, but also have taken the No. 1 spot every single year. The Kogod index demonstrates GM’s commitment to the U.S. economy as well as delivering on the promises made to consumers.

The index is authored by Frank DuBois, a global supply chain management expert and professor at American University in Washington, D.C. DuBois developed the list based on publicly available data from the American Automotive Labeling Act (AALA), automakers’ annual reports and Form 10-K filings to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. According to DuBois, the rating process used in the study most accurately represents the Made in America index because it acknowledges that every vehicle is likely to include non-American content, given that global supply chains are the operating reality of the automotive industry.

The "click here" didn't make the cut and paste. Here is the link:

GM as a whole has not 20% of the 1970 Chevrolet Division market share.

"Best" sounds good. Doesn't seem to translate into sales much.

Probably should check your facts a bit. Smaller? Yes...but 20%...really? It's a much more crowded market than 1970.

Anyway, this thread is about American content...has nothing to do with size nor market share.

I care about American made. I am 62 and have had many, many vehicles. We have a 2002 GMC Yukon 1500 4wd 160,000 miles for towing the 22' Safari and daily driver to work, could not be happier.

Heard that on a national business program. GM -- as a whole -- has 17% market share. Chevy -- alone -- in 1970 was 24%

How many brands in US in 1970? How many today? How many GMs sold outside US in 1970? How many today. We are in a global marketplace today. You're mixing completely different circumstances to completely different marketplace. Again, however this thread is about American CONTENT in vehicles sold in one market, the US.

And, since when is 17, 20% of 24?

I doubt the radio and many of the electronics in GM PRODUCTS are made in the USA.

Please read the link. They cover much of the global procurement processes of every automaker. None are 100% American made. Every GM vehicle has some amount of foreign bits and pieces. The scoring is pretty comprehensive.

Sign in at WARDS and read for yourself.

Once upon a time the Chevrolet Division of GM accounted for one quarter of all new cars sold in America.

Today, all of GM hasn't the share that just one of its divisions once had.

So, "nice" that GM has cars with good ratings.

Just doesn't mean much without market share increasing. Americans aren't sufficiently impressed.

You are still dodging your first comment. GM is not 20% of the size that Chevy was in 1970. (Even in the US) Let alone global sales and foreign share that didn't exist in 1970 hardly at all.

In you measure the total sales volume of the big 3 in 2016 compared to 1970 and adjust for the increased number of brands today along with profitability and hourly wage earned you'll find that North American brands support the economy at rates of 12 to 23% more than the 70's with slight variance by region. North America also produces and assembles almost 22%of all foreign brands sold in the USA , whether it be the entire vehicle assembly or merely components of the vehicle, in 1970 no part of any foreign vehicle was built in part or whole in the USA

Hmmm and yet the all Chinese manufactured Buick Evision sold here is not even mentioned; not to mention that Ford will also shifting all Ford Focus manufacturing to China in the coming years. Once GM tallies up the incredible profit margin vehicles like the Buick Envision gives GM, the flood gates will open large for other vehicles to be built and imported from China.

Cheers

Oh, and the Envision is not 100% Chinese in its component makeup.

It's in there...#77. What is it you all don't understand about a global market. Do you realize how many Buicks, Cadillacs, and Chevys are produced by GM for domestic Chinese consumption? Much of those dollars comes back here. If it's ok for Toyota to do that here, why is it not ok for GM, Ford, Etc to do it there. FYI, it was 3.87 million vehicles in 2016.

See, this is the American way.......DON'T buy foreign cars; but it's okay for American companies to set up shop in foreign countries, sell cars with profits coming back to America, and get foreign goverment subsidies to keep operations going, (Vauxhall, Opel, Holden, to name a few GM foreign brands, were all given generous subsidies). God forbid Toyota, Honda or Nissan get the same treatment in America.

It is NOT a level playing field when it comes to American companies with the world and you only have to look at Lockheed Martin and the F35 to see that.

America (current administration) wants to sell to everyone, and buy from no one.

Cheers
Tony

Who said don't buy foreign cars. I believe in free market. This thread offered as a definitive answer to prior threads on the subject.
