The Real Deal

The union-made, American-made Ford F-150 pickup is the best-selling vehicle in the U.S.

These days, it’s hard to track where cars, trucks, and SUVs really are made. Here’s a list of vehicles that are built union – either by United Auto Workers members in the U.S., or by members of their partner union in Canada. The most-up-to-date list of vehicles from 2014 (or earlier years) is available on the UAW’s website.

Union-made in the USA – maybe

Some of these vehicles are assembled in the U.S., some are not. Check the VIN (vehicle identification number); if it starts with a 1, 4, or 5, the vehicle is assembled in the U.S. If the VIN begins with 2, it is assembled in Canada; if the VIN begins with 3, it is assembled in Mexico.
