Ford F-150 wins Green Truck Of The Year

The 2016 F-150 has a fuel efficiency rating of 26 miles per gallon, which isn’t exactly Toyota Prius territory but does account for the best fuel economy rating of any full-size gas-powered pickup truck. We also know that improving the worst gas guzzlers on the road is more important than making the Prius even more efficient. It also helps is that Ford makes versions of its bestselling truck that can run on compressed natural gas (CNG) and propane.

For years, the F-150 has been the country’s best-selling vehicle model, so it’s a good thing Ford is making a number of moves to make the vehicle greener. The most trumpeted example is Ford’s extensive use of aluminum on its 2015 model-year version in order to cut weight from the truck and boost fuel efficiency as a result. Additionally, the truck includes cloth seats that use fiber made from recycled plastic bottles as well as fuel lines made with castor bean oil.

In addition to big sales, the F-150’s list of truck-of-the-year awards is starting to get impressively long. Among a number of general and mainstream awards (see list below), the truck won the AAA Green Car Guide Award.
