If you let USA research all its improvements you probably lost already.

What about using Argentines or the Sioux fully upgraded cavalries? They mainly focus on using horses.

Anticav spam usually works about fine. Especially since you'll make mincemeat of Argentina's villagers.

While late game USA may be very strong, I found that in my games I usually lacked some more villagers/eco, and they suffer from mediocre train times IIRC. So the only solution I know to counter them very late is to outspam them (something many civs cannot, looking at you Tupi)
