Actually, they’re equally “American” based on their domestic parts content of 75 percent, the dollar value of their parts that are made in the U.S. and Canada. This is the domestic parts content reported by the manufacturers to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the federal agency that compiles the information to include it on window price stickers.


The Tundra is assembled in Texas, and most of its engines and transmissions are made in the U.S. (and some in Japan, the source for 15 percent of the Tundra’s content). The F-150 is assembled at plants in Michigan and Missouri, and most of its engines and all transmissions are made in the U.S. Its 5.0-liter V-8 is made in Canada.


The F-250, F-350 and other Super Duty models are not rated for domestic content.
