+Ford Motor Company's Ford F-150 Beats Camry
in American-Made Ranking
Ford’s F-150 pickup, pacing the biggest gain in U.S. market share among automakers this year, topped a consumer website’s list of most-American made models, replacing Toyota’s Camry sedan.
The F-150 snapped a four-year streak for the Camry and earned the No. 1 spot in Cars.com’s 2013 American-Made index. The index ranks model lines based on their sales and whether car or truck parts and completed vehicles are built in the U.S.
Ford’s F-Series trucks have propelled the biggest U.S. sales increase among major automakers this year. The automaker said last month that it’s adding 2,000 workers and a third shift at its F-150 factory in Missouri to increase pickup production beginning in the third quarter. The F-150 also is assembled at a plant in Dearborn, Michigan.
“Ford’s top ranking this year is a good indicator of how pickup trucks are dominating auto sales so far in 2013, and how the domestic automakers are bouncing back,” Patrick Olsen, Cars.com’s editor-in-chief, said in the statement. While the assembly point and domestic parts content of the F-150 didn’t change from 2012 to 2013, vehicle sales are responsible for bumping the F-150 to the top spot, Olsen said.
Ford light vehicle deliveries climbed 13 percent this year through May to 1.05 million, according to Autodata Corp. The automaker boosted its market share by 0.8 percentage points during that span to 16.4 percent, the Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey-based researcher said.
