    Introduced in 2006. Just copied some info.

    The 3UR-FE is a 5.7-liter (5663 cc) engine designed for use in Toyota Tundra/Sequoia/Land Cruiser, and Lexus LX570 Trucks, without the D-4S gasoline direct injection but with Dual VVT-i. Bore of 94 mm and stroke of 102 mm, it produces 381 hp (283 kW) at 5,600 rpm and 401 lb·ft (543 N·m) of torque at 3,600 rpm. A stainless steel exhaust manifold incorporating a 3-way catalytic converter is used. This engine is cast at Toyota's Bodine Aluminum and currently assembled at Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama. Over 1.3 million kilometers of durability testing have gone into the engine. E85 ethanol capability will be optional for the 2009 model year.[4] The engine's service weight is 222 kg.

    I believe some (75%?) of it is manufactured in TX.

    One time my roommate and I were arguing about toyotas basically being the best vehicles ever made and he's a Chevy/GM person and he's like "I just like American made vehicles" (I know, he's the definition of stupid but that's a convo for a different day) and i just blankly starred at him.

    The F-150 doe have similar percent of US sourced parts too, but not the "others". The Alabama motor facility has had a pretty good record so far with engine quality overall. Early on in 07 there were 20 or so engines that got bad crankshafts. Bad metallurgy was the cause. A normally reliable supplier issue that was corrected immediately with replaced engines. History.
