Two of Acura’s top-selling models have earned the honor of being named to the American-Made Index for 2019.

Learn more about the 2019 American-Made Index and about the two Acura vehicles that made the list.

What is the American-Made Index?

Many drivers in the Spring and Sugarland areas will want to purchase a vehicle that will have a positive effect on the economy in the United States. This is why the American-Made Index was created. It takes a variety of factors into consideration when calculating which vehicles have the greatest effect on the U.S. economy. It shows that an automaker’s home country does not necessarily play a role in how sales of that vehicle influence America’s labor force and economy. The factors looks at include:

  • Its domestic parts content
  • Where the vehicle is assembled
  • Where the engine and transmissions are produced
  • The number of factory workers employed by the automaker in relation to vehicle sales

Acura and the Economy

Did you know that Acura was the first international luxury vehicle brand to develop and design cars right here in the United States? In fact, approximately 99% of the Acura vehicles sold in America are made in the U.S. The Acura NSX, which is created at the Performance Manufacturing Center in Marysville, Ohio, is the only supercar produced in America. It’s no surprise that two popular Acura vehicles, the RDX and MDX, made the 2019 American-Made Index.

  • The latest generation of both the RDX and the MDX were designed in California and then developed in Ohio.
  • The East Liberty Auto Plant in Ohio produces the MDX and RDX.
