Lincoln Aviator Ranked 26th In 2023 Made In America Index

The annual Kogod School of Business Made in America Auto Index gives consumers some insight into the origins of new vehicles, as well as the components that make them up and the places they’re produced. In that regard, the Lincoln Aviator ranked 15th in the 2022 installment of this study, thanks in part to the fact that 45 percent of the crossover’s content comes from either the U.S. or Canada – one of the key measurements for this study. Now, the 2023 Made in America Auto Index has been released, and it reveals that the Lincoln Aviator once again made the cut – though it did fall down the rankings a bit.

In the 2023 Made in America Index, the Lincoln Aviator ranked 26th among all new vehicles on sale, as 60 percent of its content is domestically sourced. It wasn’t the only Blue Oval model to make this list either, as the Ford Explorer XLT ranked 20th with a domestic content of 63.5 percent, the Ford F-150 finished 17th at 65 percent, the Ford Bronco Raptor came in 18th among all new vehicles on sale with a 64.5 percent domestic content, and the Lincoln Corsair PHEV came in 23rd with a domestic content percentage of 62.

The Made in America Auto Index uses seven points derived from publicly available data based on research performed by the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor, Michigan to arrive at these conclusions – profit margin, labor, research and development, inventory, capital, and other expenses, engine, transmission, and body, chassis, and electrical components.

These rankings also take into account the economic value of the different components of auto manufacturing. For example, the highest-ranked cars are made by U.S. based manufacturers that utilize American engines and transmissions, as well as a high percentage of U.S. and Canadian parts. In the case of components like the engine and transmission and the location that the vehicle is assembled, those that aren’t U.S.-based are given a score of 0.
