Are you prepared to pay an additional 20 percent for any of these? Didn't think so.
Whether you’re in the market for a new truck, SUV or compact car, chances are at least one of your contenders appears on this list. In case you’ve been held up in a cement hole for the past week or so, US President Trump has proposed a 20 percent tax on all products made in Mexico that are imported to America. Obviously the idea there is to dissuade American companies from sending jobs south of the border. We get that, but an additional 20 percent tax on a vehicle that’s already expensive will definitely hurt automakers, American or not.
Lower labor costs and NAFTA make building cars in Mexico an attractive option for automakers, but are those companies about to face the wrath of a new president who has a clear America First agenda? Probably not, unless a deal of some sort is made. Conveniently enough, Trump famously authored (well, ghostwrote) The Art of the Deal. In any case, here are 23 cars that are Mexican made. Are you willing to pay an additional 20 percent for any of these? 1. Audi Q5/ 2. Chevrolet Silverado Crew Cab/ 3. Chevrolet Cruze Hatchback/ 4. Dodge Journey/ 5. Ram Promaster/ 6. Fiat 500
