The Auto Alliance is a trade group of automobile manufacturers that operate in the United States. It is the leading advocacy group for the auto industry, representing 77% of all car and light truck sales in the United States. The Auto Alliance is active in the areas of environment, energy and motor vehicle safety. Mitch Bainwol is the CEO of the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers.

As an advocacy group for the automobile industry on public policy issues, an example of the alliance's activity includes sponsorship of the Transportation Data Center at the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI).

Likewise, the alliance is active in political lobbying on behalf of the industry. The alliance appealed, for instance, a district-court ruling in California in September 2007 that upholds states' ability to regulate exhaust emissions, the issue having a strong bearing on state and federal vehicle mileage regulations. They also have weighed in on the federal government's new fuel economy and emissions standards proposals calling for other industries to do their part in helping to trim pollution and conserve energy. The Alliance opposes the Motor Vehicle Owners' Right to Repair Act.

In September 2009, the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers joined the Obama administration and environmentalists in opposing an effort to bar the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for one year from attempting to regulate green-house-gas emissions for power plants and other large sources, preferring a single nationwide set of rules, a main priority since 2002.

AAM suggested to the coming Trump government in November 2016 that the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) fuel economy rules be reviewed and relaxed.
