Corvette Ranks Third Overall in 2016 Kogod Made in America Auto Index


The Made in America Automotive Index is produced by Associate Professor Frank DuBois at American University’s Kogod School of Business and it ranks automobile models based on seven data points to determine how much the domestic economy is responsible in the manufacture of those vehicles.
