Where Are Acuras Made?

Five out of six Acura models are made in the United States. The Acura brand has become much more of an American brand over the last few decades. Vehicle and parts manufacturing are two factors in the equation. Research and development is also done, by and large, in the United States. As such, Acura, the luxury division of Honda, seems to have its finger on the pulse of American luxury car buyers.

Vehicle Assembly Plants

State-of-the-art manufacturing centers are in Ohio and Alabama. Until recently the MDX was made at the Acura Alabama plant, but the three-row model is now manufactured with at the East Liberty, Ohio, plant. It is in good company since this is also where the RDX sport utility vehicle is made. Consumer Reports has called the Acura MDX one of the ten best cars made in America. The Marysville, Ohio, plant produces Acura ILX sport sedans and TLX performance sedans. A new performance center was just set up in Ohio to assemble the exciting Acura NSX. This makes it the only supercar built in the United States. Purchasers can ask to watch the process, enjoying a close-up view of how humans and machines work together to produce these remarkable cars.

Acura Excellence

From start to finish, Acuras are designed and equipped in the United States. Acura puts an emphasis on flexible manufacturing. This allows it to shift production to models as needed. To support production, it recently invested $85 million in equipment. Engines are made at a plant in Anna, Ohio. A Russells Point, Ohio, factory manufactures transmissions and all-wheel components.

The NSX and other Acura products are developed and tested at both a Los Angeles Research and Development facility and the Raymond R&D Center in Ohio. This puts developers in close proximity to the manufacturing process where they can oversee the implementation of their engineering plans. Designers can monitor the quality of the craftsmanship and materials that go into every luxury Acura.
