How I’d love to hold in my quiver such assets as paid researchers. The New York Times has completed an exhaustive S&D (search and define) to establish which vehicles are Made In America. Alongside this information, the NYT has also provided us with vehicles Hecho En Mexico. For the purpose of this post, the NYT has thankfully gone north of the border, as well. Made In Canada, or as numerous millions say, Fait Au Canada.
In truth, the Times delved much deeper into the so-called American cars. Were the employees who assembled the vehicle unionized; where do the engines and transmissions come from? Before you take a look at the list and jump into a hissyfit, remember that some vehicles are assembled in multiple factories all over the continent or all over the world. And, in many cases, vehicles could be assembled in the USA with engines from different countries; not just the one. Not only that, but the design could have taken place on the other side of the world or just down the street from the factory. Although informative, this list is by no means all-encompassing.
Nevertheless, you ought to feel obligated to take a look at the Made In Canada list below if you want to sound educated at work tomorrow. Oh, and the vehicles below are clearly not in alphabetical order. They’re arranged by how pleased I am, as a Canadian, to live in the nation where these cars are built… for reasons unknown even to me.
