A Green Pickup Built Ford Tough: 2017 Ford F-150 Receives Top Honors from AAA Green Car Guide

When one thinks of a "green" vehicle, bespeaking the kind of fuel efficiency that verges on eco-friendliness, the first body style that springs to mind surely isn't "pickup truck." But a recent award gifted to the 2017 Ford F-150 XLT SuperCrew 4x2 pickup makes the stereotype of a gas-guzzling truck a thing of bygone days.

Believe it. Equip a comparably configured 2017 F-150 XLT with a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, and you'll find yourself behind the wheel of a truck that just earned a Top Green Vehicle award in the expert AAA Green Car Guide's pickup category. Not only did the road service authority praise 2017 F-150 for a best-in-class showing on gas fuel economy, estimated by the EPA at 19 mpg city, 26 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined, but also for both an interior with room to spare and the truck's reliable and responsive handling.

Of course, such an accolade couldn't have come about without a little help from 2017 F-150's lighter, more durable military-grade aluminum-alloy structure. The manufacturer's flagship likewise supports its environmentally conscious showing with a Greener Choice award given by American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE), making F-150 the only full-size truck in the council’s Greener Choices list. Tack on a "best truck value" from the vehicle research and valuation gurus at Kelley Blue Book, and one begins to see it's a pickup worthy of the Ford moniker: maker of the "best-selling trucks in America for more than 40 years." These are, of course, atop numerous shout-outs for 2017 F-150 from Car and Driver, who gave it a 2017 10Best Award, as well as from U.S. News & World Report, Autobytel.com, and Edmunds.com's Most Wanted Awards.
