    "It was engineered in Michigan, designed in California and Michigan, the engines are made in Alabama, the transmissions are made in North Carolina, and it is assembled in Texas"

    Rankings for most American

    Ranked #5 out of all cars and trucks in 2014. First for trucks. "Tundra being made of more American parts than its domestic counterparts. Like the Camry, the Tundra uses three-quarters of its parts from the States or Canada; engine production is split between here and Japan. By comparison, the Silverado is made up of just 40 percent North American-sourced parts. (Note: the Ford F-Series was not ranked on the NHTSA’s listing; the Tundra was the highest ranking truck found on the list provided.)

    2013: Toyota Tundra Tie for first with F-150 for truck only ranking
    Percent U.S./Canadian Content: 75
    Final Assembly Country: U.S.
    Engine Source: U.S.
    Transmission Source: U.S.
    Kogod Made in America Auto Index Score: 78.5

    "Toyota Motor's (NYSE:TM) Tundra comes in at No.7 on the list. Assembled in San Antonio, Texas, the Tundra represents one of the two full-sized pickup trucks that make the American Made index. Trucks have been dominating auto sales in 2013 thanks to a rebounding housing market and consumers who are willing to buy again. And reports show that buyers are turning to pickup trucks — good news for Toyota's Tundra, which has benefited from increased support from customers, especially in its state of creation, Texas."

    You have to love the fact that our trucks support the American economy. As a US Service member it's important to me to support my country. I can't imagine buying any other truck!
