I think its just a case of Chevy paid the Royals Corporation more money to use their trucks. Kansas City [Claycomo, MO] has the largest capacity Ford plant in the world and employs more than 7000 people building the F150
The Ford Claycomo plant builds the F-150 and the Transit van. They were building the Escape but changed over to the Transit 2 years ago. They've been making the F-150 for a long time, and now only Kansas City and Detroit build it. There is also a Chevrolet car plant in Kansas City, Kansas KC,K is just across the river from Kansas City, Missouri.
