Ford F-150 Rated Top “Greener Choice”

There’s lots of reasons to love Ford pickup trucks. They have power, strength, and rugged style. However, they don’t lack in efficiency, either. The Ford F-150 proved that by being named a “Greener Choice.”

The 2017 F-150 earned this title from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy. Every year, the ACEEE gives out awards to cars that help our environment with high fuel economy. The F-150 earned a Greener Choice award, a triumph for a full-size truck.

The F-150 was the only full-size truck to get the award. It earned it with its eco-friendly 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine. When equipped with this engine, the 2017 F-150 earned an ACEEE Green Score of 39. That means that the F-150 was 12th overall in Greener Choices! That’s impressive for a pickup truck.

A fuel rating of 26 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined makes the truck best-in-class for fuel efficiency. But if you choose this truck, you won’t only be getting amazing fuel efficiency. There are other smart features like a 10-speed automatic transmission and engine stop/start technology.

The 2017 Ford F-150 is chock full of intelligence and ready to take you on any adventure. Check out the Ford F-150 today at Two Rivers Ford.
