Over the course of the past decade, Ford has established itself as a leader in powerful, fuel-efficient powertrains. Now, it looks like this innovative leadership is paying off. Both the Ford F-150 pickup truck and the Ford Focus hatchback were recently named to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy’s (ACEEE) Top Greenest Vehicles list, showing that Ford is the brand to turn to when you want to go green.
Through a combination of a 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine and the use of aluminum, which cuts down significantly on the truck’s bodyweight, the F-150 pickup is capable of achieving a top-notch EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 22 miles per gallon combined. This fuel efficiency made it no surprise that the F-150 was named the greenest standard pickup truck. Though the truck gets such terrific fuel economy, it still has the power that many truck lovers look for.
The Focus was recognized as one of the twelve greenest overall vehicles on the market, showing that its compact size and fun-to-drive performance won’t make you sacrifice more money at the gas pump. To see both of these green vehicles, stop in to Mountaineer Ford today!
