The much anticipate 2015 Ford F-150 will hit the dealership soon. With an aluminum-body and a slew of special features for the working man, the biggest question we hear is “will it be reliable?”
Well Ford put these trucks to the test, secretly, at job sites across the country. Since 2011, Ford has taken aluminum-alloy F-150 models to workers all across the country, letting the customer see what they will expect in the all-new model.
The 2013 Ford F-150 is one of the most American made vehicles on the road today.
Frank DuBois, a global supply chain management expert at American University’s Kogod School of Business, led an analysis to discover the most American made vehicles on the road.
By using data from the American Automobile Labeling Act (AALA) reports you can see the F-150‘s content is 75% made in the United States or Canada. The AALA was enacted in 1992 to inform consumers about the percentage of American content which comprises each car.
Focusing on not only where each part of a vehicle is made but where the manufacturer is headquartered, where most research and development occurs, where assembly occurs, and where the engine and transmission comes from DuBois found the top most American made vehicles. And the Ford F-150 ranked in the top five of that list.
