It is interesting because even if final assembly takes place in the U.S., they still have parts manufactured in other countries. My window sticker said "75% U.S. and Canadian parts content."

Now everyone correct me if I am wrong...but I thought that all 1500 quad/crew cabs were built in Michigan and all 1500 reg cabs/2500/3500/4500/5500 were built in Mexico?

I was just checking my window sticker...on the right side it says "parts content information". It states where the parts came from and the percentage....so although the majority of the truck does come from Michigan and the assembly was done there as well, apparently the engine came from Mexico.....no matter how hard I try not to, I learn something new everyday

IF you still have your original window sticker
look on the part that reads

EPA FUEL ECONOMY ESTIMATES

on the bottom, right of that sheet, there is a outlined box

mine reads
Parts content information

For vehicles in this carline
US/Canadian parts content 53%
Major Sources of Foreign Parts Content
MEXICO 18%
note: parts content does not include final assembly, distribution, or other non-parts costs

For This Vehicle
Final Assembly Point
Warren, Michigan, USA

Country of Origin
Engine Mexico
Transmission: United States

Zabman is correct. My hemi was assembled in Mexico. Other parts are from Canada and US. Truck was assembled in Michigan. Just spreaden the Dodge love around, I guess. And saving as much money as possible, I'm sure.

I wouldn't dwell on that dumb feeling. I stand to be corrected, but I believe it was the Ram ForumZ that got me sorted out on that. LOL

AND....that is probably the greatest thing about this place. You can ask a question, and gain knowledge. To the Z!!
