Percent of parts and assembly made/performed in America.

The F150 is 70% (the highest)
The Chevy Silverado is only 45%

GM is growing their operation in China. China is investing in GM.

Of course FAC is foreign owned (Fiat) with Chrysler as the American subsidiary. So is Anheuser Busch foreign owned (InBev) at this point. ;-)

That is why I prefer and own the F-150. I guess I am just a true blue American.

Do mean where the truck is actually made, or do you mean what country the company is based in, or do you mean made in the USA by union or non-union workers?

Pickup truck assembly and percent of US content:

1. 2015 Ford F-150 (tie)Percent U.S./Canadian Content: 70
Final Assembly Country: U.S.
Engine Source: U.S., Canada
Transmission Source: U.S.

1. 2015 Toyota Tundra (tie)Percent U.S./Canadian Content: 70
Final Assembly Country: U.S.
Engine Source: U.S.
Transmission Source: U.S.

2. 2015 Chevrolet Colorado (tie) GMC Canyon Percent U.S./Canadian Content: 66
Final Assembly Country: U.S.
Engine Source: U.S.
Transmission Source: U.S., Brazil

3. 2015 Ram 1500Percent U.S./Canadian Content: 61

4. 2015 Toyota TacomaPercent U.S./Canadian Content: 60

5. 2015 Nissan Frontier (tie)Percent U.S./Canadian Content: 50

5. 2015 Nissan Titan (tie)Percent U.S./Canadian Content: 50

Transmission Source: Japan

6. 2015 Chevrolet Silverado (tie) GMC Sierra Percent U.S./Canadian Content: 45
Final Assembly Country: U.S., Mexico
Engine Source: U.S.
Transmission Source: U.S.

And I will say that my Mexican made trucks (three of them now in the past four years, have less assembly problems than my previous US or Canadian trucks. As for warranty work, my three Mexican made trucks have only been in to the service department for oil changes, tire rotations, and ONE recall to reprogram the air bag controller.

Good thing we are not discussing cars; cause Ford is a big fat zero for the top eight...
1. Toyota Camry

2. Honda Accord

3. Toyota Sienna

4. Honda Odyssey

5. Honda Pilot

6. Chevrolet Traverse

7. GMC Acadia

8. Buick Enclave

Have to ask, for all you "true blue" american made product people...where is your TV made, your Camera, your phone, your computer, your home theater, and I could go on and one.

As others have said, enjoy your new toy.
Cummins makes very reliable diesels, which is why so many diesel Class A manufacturers have used them for years. I wouldn't expect their V-8, originally designed for the Ram 1500, to be any different than their 6-cylinder in that regard. So, as sfsgm has stated

PS--And some don't like dogs of any size.

There are forums loaded with horror stories on Cummins engines. They are generally good but certainly have their own major problems.

About the biggest "horror story" you'll find about the Cummins engine is with the VP44 high pressure fuel pump going bad. As someone who went throught it in my old Ram--this happens because Dodge and Cummins couldn't agree on where to put the low pressure lift pump--Dodge wanted it mounted on the back of the engine for ease of assembly, and Cummins repeatedly kept telling them "no, it needs to go in the tank where it's cooled by the fuel and won't be subjected to the heat and vibration of the engine, causing premature failure." Guess who won that argument? So when it goes bad, the VP44 winds up getting no help from the dead lift pump and has to suck fuel all the way from the tank, which it will do for a little while, but wasn't designed to do at all, hence the expensive failure. So if you have a Cummins Ram and the lift pump hasn't been relocated to the tank yet (or replaced by a good aftermarket one,) do yourself a favor and do it ASAP...

I Like the new Titan.. I have a Nissan Car that has been very good to me for 155,000 miles. The titan does fill that niche between the 1/2 and 3/4 ton, but barely... expect other manufactures to follow suit. I dont consider the Ram ecodiesel much of an option, as it has the same torque rating as the ecoboost but down roughly 140 HP. It does get great fuel economy.

My only hesitation on the Titan is that its a first year introduction, and the price. Around here they have an asking price similar or sometimes even higher than a similarly equipped 3/4 ton diesel ford, dodge, etc.. At that price, its absolutely a no brainer.. pay the same price, (or less) and I would get a 3/4 ton.
