These days, it seems like automakers of all kinds are making strides toward more eco-friendly designs, and with good reason. Drivers know that they can feel good about sliding into a vehicle that will help them to reduce their carbon footprint.
One automaker that is going above and beyond when it comes to environmentally conscious engineering is Ford. At our Fort Wayne, IN area Ford dealership, drivers can even go green when they claim the power of the 2015 Ford F-150 as their own!
When you climb into the cab of this legendary pickup, you’ll immediately notice that the interior is both comfortable and inviting. What you might not notice right away, though, is that the interior materials are, in large part, created using recycled materials.
By partnering with Unifi, Ford has been able to use REPREVE in the interior of the 2015 F-150. A fiber made from recycled plastic, REPREVE is a huge leap forward in efforts to reuse materials that would otherwise be destined for the landfills. Ford’s use of this material in new vehicles will divert over five million plastic bottles’ worth of material from our landfills!
2015 Ford F-150 Pairs Smart Interior with Brilliant Performance
Of course, the 2015 Ford F-150 brings Fort Wayne, IN area drivers more than just a sustainably designed cabin. Every element of this clever pickup has been designed to help it make more from less, right down to the frame.
By using class-exclusive military grade aluminum-alloy in the truck’s body, Ford has been able to reduce the 2015 F-150’s weight by up to 700 lbs while simultaneously improving its strength and resistance against rust and dings.
Paired with efficiency as high as 26 mpg on the highway thanks to Ford’s EcoBoost engine options, it isn’t hard to see that the 2015 F-150 takes efficiency as seriously as it takes hard work. Don’t worry about getting the job done, though; this beastly pickup still offers best-in-class towing and payload ratings to help you get down to business!

Accommodation Line Scenic Byway
Just a few hours south of Delphos, the Accommodation Line Scenic Byway memorializes the early 19th century stagecoach route of the Accommodation Line. The route spans from Spring Valley to Waynesville, making it the perfect destination for your next day trip.
You’ll find a number of historic towns and state parks along the way, adding a nice variety to the sprawling, green landscape. In Waynesville, you’ll have the chance to enjoy self-guided tours of historic buildings, festivals throughout the year, and plenty of shopping.
Heritage Corridors of Bath
Composed of several different rural roads that roll through hills and fields, the Heritage Corridors of Bath are a fan favorite for the team at our Ford dealer serving Delphos. The network of roads works its way through a number of exclusive areas, including natural preserves that are home to some of Ohio’s rarest plant life.
If you’re looking to make a true road trip out of your drive, this is a great place to start. You’ll find yourself just a stone’s throw south of Cleveland and the coast of Lake Erie, so there’s plenty to love!
Historic National Road
Our list wouldn’t be complete, of course, without mentioning this monumental byway! Defined by modern day Route 40, the National Road was commissioned by Congress in the early 1800s and ran from Maryland to Illinois, passing through our beautiful home state along the way.
A road trip lover’s delight, the National Road spans several states and includes original bridges and historic landmarks along the way. Museums and attractions along the way make it easy to spend several days soaking it all in!
Whether you’re headed out for a week-long road trip or a leisurely Sunday drive, the important thing is to take it all in and to enjoy the ride.

Now, you’re thinking I am going to say I am thankful that I have the honor of paying taxes and how that privilege helps fund this great nation of ours, blah, blah, blah… No, that is one I am not thankful for. However, my April holds several other special days. Continue reading
The saying is true “April showers bring May flowers,” as we have seen several parts of the country receive significant amounts of rain this spring season. While we all know the damage large amounts of rain can do to our homes, have you stopped to think about what rain can do to your vehicle?
