    Maybe, they produce more for mexico and all but in the us I would have to say ford is the largest supplier. You talking bout the commercial where the german guy made that claim right?

    probably. I believe Diamler Benz owns Freightliner, thats more than likely where this 'commercial vehicle' claim comes from.

    Daimler Benz, now Daimler Chrysler effectively took control of Chrysler after the so called merger of equals. Dodge is a one of Daimler Chrysler's brands. Chrysler is a German company now.

    Mercades bought most of Chryslers shares a few years ago, hence Diamler Chrysler. Dieter is the owner of Diamler Chrysler. They own several other car companies. And when people usually say the Big Three, they mean the 3 american car companies (ford, gm, chrysler), however like what bill said, what most people dont realize is that Chrysler isnt american anymore
