Michigan workers produce a tremendous amount of sport utility vehicles (SUV) and trucks each year. If you’re looking to get a new vehicle that was made in American, look to its unique identification number, a.k.a. its VIN. The VIN can usually be found on the lower dashboard on the driver’s side. If it starts with a 1, 4, or 5, then that vehicle was assembled in the good old U.S.A. To find out the factory where it was produced, make note of the 11th out of 17 characters. A good jumping off point if you want to buy or lease a truck or SUV made in Michigan is to start with the 2020 models below.
