Best American Car Brands

Get'cha motor runnin'. This has cars from GM, Ford, Etc.

The Top Ten

1 Ford Ford The Ford Motor Company is an American multinational automaker headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit.

Ford very good quality and yet very under estimated and can some one please explain why chevy is better then ford

Ford=first on race day, drive ride give it pride even if its loved

Ford is definitely the best American car brand. Ford cars and trucks have been very reliable. In our family there has been nothing but fords and one lincoln which is also made by ford. Been loving ford brand since the early 1980's.

Ford F-150 trucks pulls trailers, carries heavy loads, climbs terrain, and dashes through the roads wherever it goes. Oh, yeah. It's built Ford Tough. *Ding! *

2 Chevrolet (GM) Chevrolet (GM) Chevrolet, colloquially referred to as Chevy and formally the Chevrolet Division of General Motors Company, is an American automobile division of the American manufacturer General Motors.

My pappy has had a chevy ever since I was little and I am 16. He has had that car for a while and it is about to become mine. I'm super excited wouldn't want anything else it runs like a charm.

This is the BEST CAR! (in my humble opinion) I have 3 Chevy's and I love 'em! They're awesome cars! Silverado, Camaro, and Suburban! All pretty good gas mileage! GO CHEVY!

Chevy is way better than Ford it should be number one because they are very reliable (more reliable than Ford) and good looking especially the Camaro and Corvette. Out of all American car brands in the world, Chevy tops this list in my opinion.

I have a reason why I like these. These are the best cars!

3 Cadillac (GM)

The Escalade is the most complete vehicle in the world. It combines a luxury, comfy, smooth ride with the power, utility, and toughness of a truck. It looks good, it drives good, and its engine (GM truck V8s 5.3, 5.7, 6.0, 6.2) is the easiest motor in the world to work on. I am a mechanic with a 2005 Escalade and I live in the heart of the rust belt. This thing is more than 10 years old and still looks and drives better than new vehicles. I can take people out on town in class but also use it as a truck hauling all my tools and equipment. Its perfect.

One of the nicest looking and best performing American cars. Don't get me wrong, many other companies are great, but come on nothing beats a caddy.

Hey what can you say about a car brand that has been noted and known for representing luxury in cars from an American perspective. It has indeed and done it well.

4 Dodge

I commented on chevy as the one with the 50 cars in garage, but I had a 2010 dodge journey SE, as if you read my chevy post, I may not struggle with money, but I thought since it was so low-cost, it must be good, no, not at all, I had to repair my brake calipers within 2 months, and I barely brake hard, only once on the highway in a jam. My blinker went in 7 months, my other blinker followed, and sooner or later, the rim started chipping at about a year, I have to say Michigan roads aren't good but seriously? If your making an American car, it better be able to stand Americans, us Americans, that's a different comment, just steer clear of dodge, please, I'm begging you. don't go what I went through.

No doubt that Dodge is the top three hands down Muscle for America If not the first not just for muscle though I don't see how ford got to number one but alright... I would put ford in the top five coming in as number 5

Dodge has some of the best looking cars and trucks on the road. The Dodge trucks are much better looking than either Ford or Chevy. The quality of Dodge vehicles has really improved over the last 2-3 years.

5 Jeep (Chrysler)

Best Company ever. I had a 1991 Jeep Cherokee that was more modern than cars told.

Did you know that ford made the first willy jeep for the war

My 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland is the best vehicle that I have ever owned. The worst vehicle that I have ever owned was a 1985 Toyota Camry. Over the last 45 years I have owned 15 vehicles.

My dad has a 2002 jeep liberty. he spend 300 dollars to buy a new engine. now it works like a charm

6 Tesla

This is the only good car company from a country of mediocre cars and vehicles. Has a great range for electric cars and makes almost no noise whatsoever. Actually reliable and will last a long time

If they could make a 45,000 version, that would be awesome. - bobcards

The car of the future is already here. This is it. All others will fail in comparison.

If Elon Musk made it, you know it has to be good.

7 Buick (GM)

Wouldn't you rather have one? -

The idea that Buick is only for Grandpa and Grandma is utter nonsense. I had a big Electra 225 when I was 19 years old, in college...used, of course, as I couldn't afford a new one at the time. Absolutely LOVED it. Been a Buick fan ever since...almost 50 years.

I have a 2010 Buick lacrosse and it is the best car I have ever owned by far.

Its seriously under apreciated. It was one of the fastest cars in 1987. It out did Ferrari. It also had a great racing history setting lap records in Indy racing. Even the boring "grandma" cars had at least reliability on its side and still does to this day.

8 GMC (GM)

Gmc looks better than chevy and it has more options although the tow brand are great

Just visit their website. Their truck models are awesome

Have a 2012 Acadia, it is the best, most luxurious vehicles ever! We came from an Acura MDX and in every aspect it wins hands down! 20,000 miles already and no issues! It rides better than the Chevrolet and Buick competitor, and is cheaper than the Buick! What's not to love?

We chose a 2013call Acadia (DenaliI'm package) over a Cadillac SRX beacause the suspension is great and it has third row seating.

9 Lincoln (Ford)

Why not again it should be number 2 it's ford the best car company around the first American car company made the the first cars like why wouldn't you buy a ford

Love the Lincoln out-of any I've drive

Best ride quiet and dependable

Looks great and has a history of making great cars.
The Town Car and Continental are the best full size cars ever made.

10 Chrysler Chrysler

The 300 looks like a Bentley -

Chrysler make luxury cars and they are so good looking

The 300 looks like a rolls royce, morgan, or excalibur - bobcards

Back in the 50s the car had trouble starting if it looked like rain. In the 90s wanted a full size convertible so I got a Chrysler Sebring 3.5 v6. Turned out to be the best car l ever had. In o8 got another one and it was as good as the first. Still have it in 2018, not for sale.

The Contenders

11 Pontiac (GM)

I own a 1990 grand am, and I love everything about it, the company was innovative and stylish, nothing will ever beat a pontiac in my opinion

Amazing cars

Best car brand ever. Most innovative. Stupid GM for eliminating the brand. I have owned Pontiacs forever. I will no longer by a new car. No Pontiacs, No sale.

I owned chevrolets and pontiacs economic and good quality

12 Mercury (Ford)

Made by ford must be great right

Almost as nice as Lincoln -

very good

13 Jeep
14 Hennessey

A supercar brand that is American.

Best American car

Unfortunately the venom is no longer the fastest car as the Agera RS has now topped it. But this is a great car company still - Monarc6

Venom gt is the fastest car in the world no matter how you cut it, ford takes second in my humble opinion... Ask other domestics are shiza

15 Plymouth

The Barracuda is one of the best muscle car ever

Nice performance

16 Saturn Saturn

I have a 2009 Saturn Vue. I have owned a Cadillac, Chrysler, Ford, Jeep, and Chevy. I have loved my Saturn more than the others. It has an amazing design and has everything I need in a car at a great price. It has never had an mechanical problems, unlike my Chrysler, and Cadillac. It is good on rough roads, but at the same time is a city car.

Saturn is a reliable brand

My cousin has a saturn vue of 2005 and it was HORRIBLE!

I like saturn why would it get dufunct? - Jordan2229

17 Oldsmobile

The best car I have ever owned, and am still driving, is a 1990 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera. As average in appearance as this car is, it has always been very reliable. It has 340,00 miles on it. It has a 4 cylinder engine, so it is not powerful, but it is good on gas. Of course, I have to do maintenance on the car to keep it going, but it is inexpensive to do. I would never have expected it to last as long as it has and run as well as it does, but I will keep driving it as long as I can. I have never had a car last this long.

I drive a 1999 Oldsmobile 88 and it may not look like much on the outside but she drives like a dream and is the best quality car I've ever driven. Wish they were still making them. Comfortable, plenty of space, and has a great feel to it, nice engine with plenty of power

I love the 77 Cutlass supreme. It's got fine quality.

At least caddilac is for old guys with class oldsmobile is for old people with 0 class ugly and bad engines.

Real great one

19 Geo


20 Studebaker

Very old luxury brand. why'd they have to drop it!?

21 Hummer

Don't like it

Looks cool

22 DeSoto
23 Panoz Motors
24 Foxbody

There just awesome

25 International Harvester

We own a 1973 International Scout II and it is durable and unlike the Ford Bronco or Jeep CJ it is very spacious and capable of real offroading with the Rallye (a package that includes power steering, chrome wheels, different steering wheel, the sticker package, and stiffer suspention) package. International made the scout in 1960 as the first ever SUV and it sold well. It also made good tractors and pickups but their cash cow was the scout.

26 American Motors

Unlike most other american brands in its time of the 1950's to the 1960's, American Motors specialized in small economy cars. And yet they put out some amazing muscle cars like the Javelin AMX and the Rebel "The Machine"

27 Saleen

500 K supercar bro

28 Ram

Cool Trucks

Consumer Reports rated 200 vehicles. Number 200, (worst) was Dodge truck. Jeep was also at the bottom. In the crash tests Dodge was the worst rated for safety. - boce
