The 2014 Ford F-150 was named as the most American-made vehicle for the second year in a row by Cars.com in its annual American-Made Index report. Each year the AMI calculates a top 10 list of the vehicles made in the U.S. that offer the most U.S.-made content. A vehicle needs to have at least 75 percent of its content made in the U.S. to qualify, then factors in where the vehicle was assembled and U.S. sales.
This year the F-150 (built outside Kansas City, Mo., and in Dearborn, Mich.) just nudged ahead of the Toyota Camry (built in Georgetown, Ky., and Lafayette, Ind.), which was also the runner-up last year.
A total of three pickups made the list this year. Besides the F-150, the Toyota Tundra finished fifth and the Honda Ridgeline came in at No. 8. Interestingly, only 10 vehicles qualified this year, and the trend seems to be fewer qualifying cars each year, with 14 vehicles qualifying in 2013, 20 vehicles in 2012 and 30 in 2011.
