2015 Toyota Tundra PerformanceIf the 2015 Toyota Tundra specs and features weren’t enough to convince you of its superiority in the pickup world, what would you say if we told you the Tundra is also one of the most American trucks available to St. Augustine and Jacksonville drivers? Built in San Antonio, Texas, 70% of the 2015 Tundra’s raw materials are sourced from North America, and Edmunds.com just put it at the top of their list of Top 10 Most American Trucks.

The Number 1 Most American Truck

In order to help new truck shoppers buy American-made vehicles, Edmunds looked at the official report of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that details where every new vehicle comes from and factored in the 2015 Kogod Made in America Auto Index.

The 2015 Toyota Tundra shares the top spot on the Edmunds “Most American Trucks” list with the 2015 Ford F-150, as both models had 70% of their materials sourced from North America.

This isn’t the first year the Tundra has come out as one of the most American trucks; the 2014 model dominated over competitors in nearly every regard, including American-ness.
