    2016 Ford F-150 Named Green Truck of the Year

    The editorial staff of the Green Car Journal has named the 2016 Ford F-150 as the 2016 Green Truck of the Year due in large part to the wide variety of powertrains and fuel choices available for the half-ton pickup truck.

    The Green Car Journal also considered the F-150's extensive use of sustainable and recycled materials (plastic bottles, castor bean oil, soybeans and blue jeans for insulation) when deciding to reward the pickup for its superior environmental responsibility.

    I am a bit surprised ANY "green" outlet would give ANY large pick up the seal of approval

    I would have guessed the COLORADO/ CANYON would be more efficient in ALL specs compared to ALL specs of the F150 + I thought the argument FOR the Prius VS a CRUZE ECO was the fuel burn and global climate change ETC was WORSE then the energy/ wast from the manufacturing

    But doesn't Aluminum production require enormous amounts of electricity......perhaps Coal fired?

    Plastic, steel, and aluminum gets recycled.....and goes in all makes. I would rather have the GM 6.0L CNG HD truck.

    Unless it's British Racing Green no car, or truck for that matter should ever be green!

    Isn't "Green Truck" an oxymoron?

    Apparently not so much, if you are shape-shifting from beer cans to p/u trucks.

    LOL at a "Green" truck.

    That is like winning an award for being the skinniest obese person.
