The health of the environment is on everyone’s mind—especially with Earth Day in the forefront of our minds. Fortunately, more and more companies and individuals are respecting our planet’s needs and doing what they need to do to provide greener options. Ford is one of these companies, and their efforts were recently recognized by the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy.
The ACEEE was founded in 1980, and works to encourage movement towards energy efficiency by performing surveys and studies. Each year, the nonprofit group forms a list of the most efficient, green, and practical gas-fueled vehicles with automatic transmission in each class.
This year, the 2017 Ford F-150 won the ACEEE’s Greener Choice award, making it the only full-size pickup to ever be called the Greener Choice. The 4×2 Ford F-150 earned the award thanks to the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, which earns this pickup 19 mpg city, 26 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined based on EPA mileage ratings.
Ratings like these make the 2017 Ford F-150 the best in its class for fuel efficiency. As Ford continues to develop smarter and better pickups, surely its lineup will become even more efficient. Stop in at Romeo Ford today to check out the practical Ford F-150 pickups in our inventory.
