August 21st, 2017 by

Every year puts out their American-Made Index list. For 2017, Jeep took two of the top spots with the 2017 Wrangler and Cherokee. Taking the top spot was the 2017 Jeep Wrangler which has been recognized as the most capable and recognizable vehicle in the world. The 2017 Jeep Cherokee walked away with the number two spot. When deciding who makes the list and what spot they take, looks at five specific features: country of origin for the transmission and engine, US factory employment, assembly location, and domestic parts content. We have the entire Jeep line here at Moritz Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in Fort Worth, TX, so come by today to test drive these American-Made stunners!


2017 Jeep Wrangler Takes Top Spot

Taking the number one spot on the American-Made Index was the 2017 Jeep Wrangler. The 2017 Wrangler currently comes in two different body models- the 2-door and the 4-door.
