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!

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.
