Results from Cars.com’s annual America-Made Index are in, and the winner is … the Ford F-150. Truck guys ‘n gals worldwide can high five and celebrate as the iconic F-150 returns to the top of the “Most American” throne, a position it held from 2006 to 2008 before handing the crown over to the Toyota Camry from 2009-2012. Folks, that’s way too long for the Camry to hold the “Most America” spot. Or is it? The American-Made Index consists of three criteria: domestic-parts content (percentage of vehicle’s parts produced in the U.S), final vehicle assembly point and vehicle sales. What catapulted the F-150 into the top spot this year? Its sales are up, which is a good sign for pickup trucks and for the domestic automakers.

The top 10 on the American-Made Index are, in order: Ford F-150 (assembled in Dearborn, Michigan, and Claycomo, Montana), Toyota Camry, Dodge Avenger, Honda Odyssey, Toyota Sienna, Chevrolet Traverse, Toyota Tundra, GMC Acadia, Buick Enclave, and Toyota Avalon. Five domestic-owned brands (Ford, Dodge, Chevrolet, GMC, Buick) and two foreign-owned brands (Toyota, Honda) made the top 10, with Toyota obviously having the greatest number of vehicles (4) ranked.

While this index shows us that “America-Made” encompasses more than just the Detroit three, let’s be proud that one of the Detroit three has landed on top again - with a truck!
