Two of the most recognizable cars on the road today are the Chevrolet Corvette and Chevrolet Camaro. These sporty rides feature a thrilling performance and ionic looks. Plus, these two models, hallmarks of the Chevrolet brand, are manufactured in the U.S. Not only that, but they are two of the best models manufactured in the U.S., according to U.S. News & World Report. Both the Corvette and Camaro made the pub’s list of The 19 Best Cars Made in America.

“Buying a car built in America by U.S. workers is a great way to support the county’s manufacturing base. In addition to supporting the American workers who assemble your car, you’ll also champion the myriad of auto parts suppliers that feed factories from coast to coast,” according to U.S. News & World Report writer John M. Vincent.

To compile this list, U.S. News looked at what other auto journalists had to say about the vehicles and evaluated data including safety scores and reliability predictions.
