Does anyone know of a good site that breaks down US/North America part percentages? I have a guy that is claiming that Toyota is the most American of any car manufacturer. I thought the F150 used to hold that position but I am not sure of that.

Thanks for the numbers guys!

That cars.com piece was interesting but a little skewed. They figured in sales and not just build location. Interesting to see the camry fall 10% in parts count.

Any drop in Camry domestic content would probably be tied to the hybrid model because none (or very few) of hybrid powertrain suppliers are North American (and many of the hybrid Camrys are imported).
