Last I heard dodge is foreign owned now and made in Mexico. Ford and chevy or mostly made in Mexico. At least the Toyota may have been made in Tx.

The Toyota MAY have been ASSEMBLED in Texas, but the parts all came from China or Japan. How many MORE folks would have been employed IF the entire vehicle, including all of the parts, were manufactured right here in the U.S.A.?

All of them would be made in the U.S.A. if I could find such a thing.

Why I appreciate the importance of this arguement, I have to say it does little for aiding me in my decision making process.

I use my Silverado 1500 4X4 W/5.3 and tow package like you describe. I get an easy 17.5 - 18 MPG around locally (part expressway, part town), and when I want to tow my rig, 2200 lb trailer w/ 5500 lb tractor, I do OK. It"s not a "big rig", but for 9 or 10 times a year, why buy a gas hog? Oh, another point.... Diesels are nice, but in NY, diesel is 40 cents higher than gas per gallon, plus the extra 10 to 15 thousand for the truck. JUST, my opinion...
