Just to include where Ford makes their vehicles-
Among Ford's trucks and sport utility vehicles, the Escape is built in Claycomo, Missouri. The related Edge and Flex crossover vehicles are built in Oakville, Ontario, Canada alongside related Lincoln models. The popular Explorer is built in Louisville, Kentucky and previously in Hazelwood, Missouri. The full-size Expedition SUV is also built in Louisville, but was previously assembled in Wayne, Michigan until that plant changed its emphasis to smaller vehicles. Ford F-Series pickup trucks are manufactured at a variety of plants depending on cab style. These plants include Dearborn, Michigan; Kansas City, Missouri; Valencia, Venezuela and Cuautitlan, Mexico. The Transit Connect cargo and passenger vans are built in Kocaeli, Turkey and Craiova, Romania for the American market. The trusty ford E-Series Econoline van is manufactured in Avon Lake, Ohio.

#10 of 15 Cruise control
Nov 29, 2013 (11:27 am)
Just purchased a 2014 Sierra 5.3 l, like the truck but am alittle annoyed at how it handles cruise control. Would expect to not feel any change when the speed drops a km, however you get a surge - the RPMs jump as if you've dropped a gear. From 1 km really. Talked to the dealer, answer was that this is new model and that they where not familure with how it should operate. Any one else have this problem. What about gas milage, don't expect the world here ,but literature say 8.7l/100km for hyw, and 13 for city, I drive mainly hyw and quite conservatively am luck to get 12.

You can't measure mpg on a new motor. Wait until 5,000 miles or so for an accurate assessment.

Teddy- I have 7500 miles on my 2014 Sierra (SLT); 5.3 L. I have not had this issue with my cruise control. On the highway I am getting 21.3 mpg and the best I have recorded (straight only freeway driving) has been 23.

What axel ratio is your truck - mine is the 3.42, to get the higher towing capability.
