Where are those trucks built? I have no idea. My B-I-L is a Chrysler diehard and has an '07 Hemi 4-door pickup he bought new. I've driven it once and ridden in it several times...very nice.

I just pulled up an old pdf file of a window sticker I had from when I was considering a Ram earlier in the year. And, oops...looks like I didn't buy as "American" as I thought.
Here's the rundown...
US/Canada parts content: 70%
Final Assembly point: Saltillo, Mexico
I'll look at my window sticker when I get a chance, but I'm presuming it'll be the same.

Heck, I can recall two seperate Lincoln-Mercury dealerships. One was Northeast Lincoln-Mercury on the corner of Tyson and Roosevelt Blvd. in NE Philly and the other was Sussman Lincoln-Mercury in Jenkintown where I bought my 1989 Mercury Grand Marquis LS.

Built in America with Korean management? Kind of like the Hyundai-Rotem railcars SEPTA bought that are already falling apart unlike the old Budd Silverliner cars that ran for 50 years.

Prepare to hear from andres3! LOL
Hey, I bought my daughter a used '08 PT Cruiser when it was two years old for $6,930. I knew it was built in Mexico, but figured as a used car, the damage was already done . For all the negatives I hear about those cars, it's been a good car. Control arm bushings and a sticky horn button have been fixed at my expense, but those are things I'd have most likely had done under warranty if I'd bought new. The local Dodge dealer was able to pull up the serial no. and saw where it was delivered new but it had never been once back to a Mopar dealer since new! People that borrow it are always surprised at the good seating position and interior roominess. It runs rougher than my Cobalt though.
Anyway, enjoy the truck!

I imagine you still have the 1985 Silverado.

For a few years I had a Sebring convertible that was made in Mexico. That plant became the PT Cruiser plant. The car was fine and very reliable. The family just grew too big for it.
This whole Ram as its own division doesn't really work for me. I still think of them as Dodges.

>"Ram" the facts down my throat...
He's just helping you lock "horns" with the truth. Sometimes doing that is "Ram(n) tough" to face?
