6.7 Made in Mexico

Sorry to burst all you Ferd fans bubbles but your 4th diesel design in 10 years is being assembled and built in Mexico. When unemployment is at its highest levels why would Ford decide to have its diesel assembly plant in Mexico. Hmm to reduce cost and increase the price of the 2011 Super Duty. You think you had problems with the 6.0 and 6.4?? Wait til you drive an engine built in Mexico. Good luck!!

To the OP:

If you knew anything about anything (which is obvious you don't from your other post), then you'd know that the Ford 6.7 is being assembled in Mexico, and shipped back to Kentucky (the USA in case you didn't know) for final assembly. Ford owns the new factory in Mexico which employs 700 some odd people. So I don't think that outsourcing 700 jobs is any comparison to the $9.4 billion GM took from the government. That's compared to the, wait, how much Ford took? Nothing.

Here's another thing. You know what makes the cost of trucks go up aside from labor and material? Research and Development. Ford's R&D was done in the US whereas Duramax or should I say, Isuzu, is from Japan.

The final word is this: It's not about where something is made, it's about HOW something is made and that's why I choose Ford.

Quite obviously, this thread began as a half-****ed, ignorance is bliss type rant. It really is interesting the lengths people will go to start a pseudo-anonymous argument about nonsensical things which they know little about in the first place. Bear in mind that this is by and large a help forum, not a "my daddy can beat up your daddy" children's playground. Just my $0.02.
