15 Trucks, SUVs, and Vans With the Most North-American-Made Parts

Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 2/20/2015 Jason Udy

All new vehicles sold in the U.S. must list the percentage of North American-sourced parts, as well as the country of origin for both the engine and the transmission. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration also requires that vehicle labels specify any country that contributes 15 percent or more of the total parts content (no more than two) and the point of final assembly. Here, we've compiled the top 15 U.S.-market trucks, SUVs, and vans with the highest North American (U.S. and Canada per the NHTSA) parts content.

Dodge Durango
