In honor of the United States of America's 236th birthday this coming week, I figured that I would honor the best in American SUVs and crossover vehicles, so I put together this list of the 5 Best American SUVs and Crossovers.
I know that this list is bound to generate some controversy. In fact, it's actually pretty difficult to determine which vehicles actually qualified for the honor. Is the Chrysler Group an American company now that they're owned by Fiat? Is the Kia Sorento an American crossover? After all, it is built in a plant in Georgia.
In the spirit of patriotism, I decided to limit my list to vehicles from the Big Three: GM, Ford and Chrysler. I'm even presenting my list in alphabetical order, the most democratic and fair order in the English-speaking world. Unless your name is Zzzyzyx, that is.
