Green Car Journal Names Ford F-150 2016 Green Truck of the Year
The Green Car Journal recently named the Ford F-150 its 2016 Green Truck of the Year at the San Antonio Auto & Truck Show. The 2016 Ford F-150 includes the highest EPA-estimated highway fuel economy rating of any full-size gasoline pickup on the market, at 26 mpg. The CNG and propane gaseous fuel prep package is available for 5.0-liter V8-equipped F-150, which further helps reduce operating costs and tailpipe CO2 emissions.
“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,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher, Green Car Journal and CarsOfChange.com. “Milestone lightweighting through the extensive use of aluminum and high-strength steel, the availability of a powerful and efficient 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, and a segment-exclusive gaseous fuel prep option that enables the F-150 to run on clean-burning compressed natural gas or propane are all important contributions that raise the bar in environmental performance.”
The Green Truck of the Year awards are an important part of Green Car Journal’s mission to showcase environmental progress in the auto industry. Presented by the San Antonio Automobile Dealers Association, the 47th annual San Antonio Auto & Truck Show took place on November 19–22, 2015 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio.
