Engine and Cab choice likely plays a role.

They may only build regular cabs at one plant (due to low production numbers) and most Hemi Trucks may be Mexican and 3.7L/4.7L Trucks USA since that saves on shipping cost for one of the heaviest components.

The new 1500 was not built in Mexico until the HD Trucks transitioned to the new body.

My 2010 Crew Cab 4x4 with 4.7L is a Warren Truck.

PS The rumor is the Mexican trucks have better fit and finish and fewer reported problems than the USA Trucks.
