These days, with cries of America First, Made in America, and Buy American heard from all parts of the country, there are those who insist on American-made automobiles. That’s MADE in America, not just assembled. The point was that things made in the U.S. help the economy here, and provide jobs and wages and opportunities to actually be able to afford the products we produce. Lots of people laughed at that idea; globalization and free trade were taking jobs and money out of the country, and that finding a car that was really made in America or could be called an American car was no longer possible. Well, that is true; however, there are cars that are almost all-American, and that should count for something.

If you were to sit down with a few of your friends and make a list of the top 10 truly iconic American cars in any class, it is very likely that no one would argue with the inclusion of the Chevrolet Camaro. The car, designed as a competitor to the insanely popular Ford Mustang, was initially rolled out for the 1967 model year. It was first made available to the general public on September 29th, 1966. This American classic muscle car remained in production continuously until 2002. General Motors decided to reintroduce the car for the 2010 model year, and it has been going strong ever since. The current era Camaro is definitely a head turner, and the car's ongoing popularity is not surprising. In fact, my own head was turned all the way to the dealership when I bought my 2014 Camaro about a year and a half ago.

If you are thinking about buying a 2017 Ford Mustang, you would do well to implement a measured strategy so that you can act in a fully informed manner. First of all, you should gain an understanding of your credit rating. If you are like most people, you're not going to be in a position to pay cash for your Mustang, so financing will be necessary. If you go online to obtain your score, you'll know where you stand from the outset. This is important when you move on to the second step, which is an evaluation of your budget. The better your credit is, the lower your interest rate will be. If you have great credit, your monthly budget may be able to absorb a higher-end 2017 Ford Mustang.
Despite its relatively paltry sales figures, Chevrolet's SS performance sedan has proven to be not only a good alternate to the dearly departed Pontiac G8, it's also a rolling showcase demonstrating the potential of the brand's performance engineering. If a new series of rumors is to be believed, the SS could end its production run with a bang.

The Fourth of July is right around the corner, and this is a very significant date in American history. Independence Day commemorates the approval of the Declaration of Independence, which made the United States a sovereign entity outside of British rule. A lot of people think that the document was signed on July 4th, but it was actually signed two days earlier and approved on the day that we now call Independence Day.
When Toyota first unveiled the Prius Prime, it touted innovative fuel-saving features that would make the Prime stand out from the rest of its green competitors. One of these features is its roof, which incorporates solar panel technology to help recharge the battery and increase fuel economy. This will help to extend the Prime's driving range; but Toyota's plan to brighten the lives of Prime buyers in the U.S. has hit a snag due to safety regulations.

Marchionne changes tune on electric vehicles, says first electric Maserati model would debut in 2019
It is no secret that when it comes to EV vehicles and their profitability, Sergio Marchionne has a well-defined stance against them. He says that their profitability is non-existent, that that the Fiat 500e EV costs $10,000 for every one that is sold. However, when it comes to whether he is open to adding one in a higher price bracket, Marchionne has swerved from that position.
