1. 2013 Ford Expedition
Assembled: Louisville, Ky.
Percentage Made In U.S.: 80%
Toyota's Avalon held this top spot last year, but Ford added a bit more red, white and blue to the supply chain. A bit of a dinosaur by industry standards, the Expedition was born to fight the SUV wars of more than a decade ago. It's still built on an F-150 pickup platform, comes with a standard 5.4-liter V8 engine, pumps out more than 300 horsepower and has 9,200 pounds of towing capacity. It's supposed to to beat up on Chevy Suburbans, GMC Yukons, Dodge Durangos, Nissan (NSANY)Armadas and Toyota Sequoias. Like the Expedition, though, most of those models peaked in the '90s and have bottomed out since. Ford sold 233,000 in 1999 before selling just 38,000 last year. That's still better than the 31,000 it moved during the economic downturn in 2009, but considering 20% of those sales came from Texas alone, this one-time mass-market marvel is slowly being relegated to a niche market.
