2016 Ford F-150: Green Truck of the Year

​ 

When you first think of the term “green car,” what comes to mind? Plucky, compact EVs? Plug-in hybrids? What about a truck from Ford’s F-series family of pickups? That’s right—Green Car Journal handed out the award for Green Truck of the Year at the San Antonio Auto & Truck Show last November, and the award went to the 2016 Ford F-150 for its seamless balance of fuel economy and power.

​ 

Ford hails the 2016 F-150 as the most tech-savvy and powerful F-150 to ever come out of the brand’s lineup, but there are some environmentally-friendly benefits to owning the pickup, too. Out of all full-size gasoline-run pickup trucks currently on the market, the F-150 has the highest EPA-estimated fuel economy, a highway rating of 26 mpg. It also comes available with the compressed natural gas/propane gaseous fuel prep package that helps the Ford F-150 reduce operating costs and carbon dioxide emissions from the tailpipe, a package that’s exclusive in the F-150’s segment.

​ 

Additionally, the 2016 F-150 is entirely constructed from sustainable materials. REPREVE fiber is constructed from recycled bottles and is an available option for seating upholstery in the cabin. Rice, castor bean oils, soybeans, and post-industrial recycled cotton are just a few other eco-friendly materials used during the creation of the Ford F-150 pickup.

​ 

Ron Cogan, editor and publisher for Green Car Journal and CarsOfChange.com, weighed in the F-150, holding it up as an example of the changes that can be made in all members of the pickup truck class: “The 2016 Ford F-150 is a great example of the environmental leadership that can, and should, be accomplished in the immensely popular pickup field.”

​ 

The 2016 Ford F-150 fully earned the honor of being the Green Truck of the Year for 2016 through not only reducing fuel consumption, but providing options for drivers who may want to be more conscious of their impact on the environment.
