e Ford F-150 has officially topped the Toyota Camry as the most American Vehicle in the Cars.com annual "American Made Index". This award comes shortly after the Ford F-150 dominated the 2013 Light-Duty Pickup Challenge, as well as its continued success as being the best-selling truck for 37 years. With so many accomplishments under it's bumper, the Ford F-150 is taking the country by storm.
The Ford F-150 topped the Toyota as the most American vehicle for a number of reasons. The American Made Index, created by Cars.com, used various factors to determine the 'American-ness' of each vehicle. Specifically, they determined where the car and its parts were built, and then how many of them were sold. Over 75% of the F-150 is manufactured in the United States; the two F-150 factories produce in Dearborn, Michigan and Claycomo, Missouri.
As for the number of vehicles sold, the Ford F-150 has done exceptionally well this year. Ford Motor Company will even be adding 2,000 workers at the F-150 factory in Missouri to continue to produce to meet the demand.
