The Chicken tax was almost a joke! Germany taxed Chickens from the U.S. The U.S. Put a 25% tax on trucks with beds attached. The value of VW trucks was equal to the value of chickens going their way.
Ford, GM, Chrysler, Toyota and others Japanese manufactures imported trucks got past the tax by importing trucks without beds, then installing beds in the U.S. Subaru got around it by importing the BRAT with seats welded in the bed. The later VW Rabbit base trucks were built in Lima, Ohio.
The Chicken Tax is not keeping Ford Rangers out of this market, Ford does not want to provide a lower profit competition for their F150.
