Look at the vehicle certification label on your door. At the very top it says

The first three vehicle identification number (VIN) positions are the world manufacturer identifier.

1FM — Ford Motor Company, USA, multi-purpose vehicle

1-5 are made in North America, F is Ford Motor Co. M is Multipurpose
1, 4, 5 = United States
2 = Canada
3 = Mexico
(Crown Vics, for example, begin with 2FA. 2=Canada,F=Ford Motor Co, A= Passenger Automobile)

The eleventh VIN position is the assembly plant code.

U — Louisville (Louisville, Kentucky)
Z — St. Louis (Hazlewood, Missouri).
