Honda and Ford Pickups Make Cars.com 2018 American-Made Index

16Ridgeline_117 II

If you're a regular reader of PickupTrucks.com, you're familiar with our sister publication's annual Cars.com American-Made Index, an analysis of more than 100 U.S.-built passenger vehicles that examines the impact a model has on the U.S. economy.

Now in its 12th year, the AMI looks at five factors — the domestic parts content of each vehicle, country of origin for the car's available engines and transmissions, the vehicle's assembly location and the factory workforce employed by each automaker — to determine which cars and trucks are the most American. Cars.com redesigned the index last year to dive deeper on the impact of a shopper choosing one car versus another. This year, two pickup trucks make the AMI's top 10 list: the Honda Ridgeline (made in Alabama with corporate headquarters in Japan) ranked third place on the list and the Ford F-150 (built in Michigan and Missouri) took the No. 9 slot.

Three other Honda/Acura vehicles, two other Fords, one Jeep and two Chevrolets round out the top 10 vehicles on the 2018 American-Made Index. Find out more about the AMI here.

Have to say, that Ford looks sharp.

The only two GM's in the top ten are the Corvette and the Volt? None of their medium or big volume vehicles made the list. That's no way to repay the American people who bailed them out and allowed them to avoid warranty claims and law suits by changing their legal name. Pathetic.

Figures, GM can't make anything remotely close to what Ford puts out. UGH!

Papajim- you should seriously look at Ford. They are number 1 in sales for ever now, and mostly American made. GM is mostly made in mexico, hence why they rust, shake and have offset steering wheels.

Rigged!

They changed the rules like liberals flip flop on issues to attack T rump with.

F ake news!

How fitting is it that the best and most beautiful sports car made in America is a 10 on the list.

LOVE
FORD !

I need to look closer at Ford, i wonder if my crappy 6.2 that I supposedly own is a foreign engine?

Chris and I have decided to trade our good for nothing Sooper Dooty in on a new RAM or GM truck as soon as possible.

Or maybe a Toyota or Nissan. Anything is better than the old Sooper Dooty.

Get used to it. Honda makes the best trucks with in bed juice cocktail storage on ice.

I could go for an ice cold juice cocktail. Sounds delish.

The real TNTGMC here.

First off why would anyone get rid of a 6.2?

Second off why would anyone get rid of the most dependable longest lasting truck on the road. I can attest, I have one with 294,000 miles on it now!

Third, nothing ford makes competes with the 6.2L in terms of performance and fuel economy! I can also attest, step dads ecobust doesn't come close. Usually 3 to 4 mpgs less than my 6.2L

Fourth, grow up whoever is posting under peoples user names!

@TNTGMC,

Do you really lose sleep over this? What is the big deal, in addition, do you ever read the disclaimer on GM commercials when you hear "The Most Dependable Trucks on the road."

Come on dude, you already look like a fool, so don't look like an idiot.

-The Real Frank

How many juice cocktails can fit in a Ridgeline? Anbody know? I hear the rear seat flips up for storing large bags of groceries. Also a typical tailgate folds down. But the Ridgeline swings both ways!

@Frank:

The real GMSRGREAT here:

The disclaimer on GM commercials is in place so FORD owners can realize that they made the wrong choice.

You sound like an altered TNTGMC ego, anyway it shows the years of trucks that are registered in which GM persuades themselves of this claim.

But hey, whatever makes you sleep well at night.

@ Frank

You just commenting makes u the one that looks like an idiot! Sorry man!

And what is wrong with me responding to.someone who cowardly posted under my name. Good grief...just stop.

U embarrass yourself when u post...case in point last 2 days!

Mr. Opinion over facts....go away.

Lol

Frank u use the the word persuades...that is fords bread and butter Bc you are it's hook, line, and sinker! You have been drinking their lies kool aide for way to long. Move along

There is a difference though, McDonalds can persuade you to buy a Burger in lieu of Burger King and or whatever you eat out there, you can't make that comparison for Ford.

Trucks don't cost $2.00

Take Care PAL!

TNTGMC is GMSRGREAT.

Just so you know.

He is also the one posting under everyone's names.

@ Frank

When you left the drive through earlier you forgot to pick up Chris's Happy Meal. Please come back and get it. His is the one with the Barbie Doll toy in it. We will save it for you and keep it under the heat lamp so it stays warm for him.

TNTGMC is GMSRGREAT.

He is also the one posting under everyone's names.

I request that PUTC block the IP Address of the forth comment in this article.

But hey, whatever makes you sleep well at night.

Hey, I sleep quite well at night knowing my Silverado is in the driveway and ready to respond at a moments notice.

A notice to restock your fridge with raw veggies.

@ Chris and whomever this Alex is:

TNTGMC is a paid GMshill

The real TNTGMC here.

First off why would anyone get rid of a 6.2?
because it's a car motor not much good for anything but going to the lake house

Second off why would anyone get rid of the most dependable longest lasting truck on the road. I can attest, I have one with 294,000 miles on it now! yeah but it ain't no 6.2 all it does is lay around waiting for some attention a little like the owner

Third, nothing ford makes competes with the 6.2L in terms of performance and fuel economy!
sure they do ever heard of the 3.5 TT every comparsion i's seen it's right there with the 6.2,
I can also attest, step dads ecobust doesn't come close.
why don't you pull your head out of your@$$ and start comparing year to year, his is a '14 and your's is a '18 i know this may be hard to comprehend but they both have tweeked both those trucks since '14
Usually 3 to 4 mpgs less than my 6.2L
when it come to FE on forums i hard pressed to believe anyone

Fourth, grow up whoever is posting under peoples user names!
Why this is fun it's the only way to get you to shut your yap

@TNTGMC

You post that same propaganda in every article. Even in articles that that have no relation to your repetitive shyte

Get on topic

I post under so many different names, I cannot keep track.

@ BA
I like being off topic on every story, it's fun arguing with everyone even though I'm not good at it

Oxi. How does the saying go...It is better to keep ones mouth shut and be thought a fool then to open it and remove all doubt.

@ gutless coward posting under other names

GREAT NO YOU"RE A BEGGAR, AND A GUTLESS WONDER

TAKE YOUR MEDICINE SON

I just punched myself in the nose

The 6.2 lags so much in sales, I wouldnt be surprised if they drop it for a better turbo v6 and follow Ford.

Lol

Now we have a fake TNTGMC? I'm glad am such a popular guy! Plus he is using the word gutless now, bc it stuck a nerve the other day when I called "IT" out. Yes I'm referring to u Caitlin Jenner!! You are an IT, bc I don't want to discriminate. We all know u have personality disorder and u just don't know what you are.
This must be why u ruin the site by posting under others user names. Please grow a pair, or get them clipped off and stop it!!!

@ TNTGMC
