Essentially seven brands of Class 8 truck are made in the US, owned by four companies - two of them being non-US companies:

Freightliner & Western Star (also Sterling, which is now discontinued), owned by German Daimler AG... The largest heavy truck manufacturer in the world.

Volvo Trucks & Mack Trucks, owned by Swedish Volvo Group - AB Volvo... Volvo is the second largest heavy truck brand in the world.

Kenworth & Peterbilt, owned by the US company Paccar. Paccar is the third largest heavy truck brand in the world.

Navistar International is a US company.
