Ford Mustangs have final assembly in Flat Rock, Mich., which is a joint facility where Mazda also makes its Mazda6 sedan. Before production moved to Flat Rock for the current-generation Mustang (2005 model year to present), all Mustangs were assembled at the same Dearborn, Mich., plant for 40 years. Shelby GT and GT500 KR models get to see Las Vegas, though, as final assembly takes place at Shelby’s production facility out west.

The Mustang missed out — just by a hair — on our American Made Index, where we list the top 10 vehicles made and sold in America with the most American-made parts. The Mustang came in at a 70% domestic-parts content rating; our minimum requirement for the list is 70%.
