25 Vehicles Less American Than The Toyota Tundra
Cars.com has found that 4 of the top 10 “most America” vehicles are made by Toyota (the Tundra, Camry, Sienna, and Venza all made the top 10). In light of Toyota’s dominance of the Cars.com list, Cars.com has named Toyota The Most “American” Manufacturer.
Instead of posting the fact that the Tundra is rated to be more “American” than both the Ram and the Chevy Silverado / GMC Sierra (just like the Tundra was last year and the year before), we thought it would be fun to list off all of the vehicles with less domestic content than the Tundra.
Here’s a list of 25 vehicles with fewer domestic parts than the Tundra:
|Vehicle||% Domestic Content|
|Chevy Silverado / GMC Sierra||75%|
|Ford Explorer and Expedition||70%|
|Chevy Suburban Tahoe / GMC Yukon||65%|
|Jeep Grand Cherokee||61%|
|Chrysler PT Cruiser||27%|
It’s important to note that the Tundra has more domestic parts than ANY other full-size pickup (as you can see). The figures in this table come straight from the US Federal Government, a product of the American Automobile Labeling Act (AALA).
Oddly enough, the AALA was originally intended to discourage US consumers from buying “foreign” cars. Does that mean we should avoid the Dodge Ram (just barely half of the truck is made in the USA)? Who would have thought that the mighty Dodge Ram, the classic Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra, and the formidable F-Series would all have LESS domestic content than the Tundra.
For any “buy American” truck owners out there, the facts are in. Buying a Toyota Tundra is good for the USA.
