The 2016 Ford F-150 Near Louisville, KY: Greener, Lighter and Ever-more Popular

For nearly 40 years, Ford's venerable F-150 has been the best-selling pickup truck in America. With the arrival of the 2016 Ford F-150 at Ford dealerships near Louisville, KY, a fresh crop of truck buyers is sure to emerge, eager to replace their aging but doubtless still serviceable older models.

Not content to rest upon the F-150's solid reputation though, Ford is focused on raising its popularity further, especially among buyers for whom luxury, fuel economy and environmental responsibility is important.

The 2016 Ford F-150 Range: From Work Trucks to Deluxe

As Washington Post Reporter Drew Harwell outlined in a July article for the Post (How America's truck, the Ford F-150, became a plaything for the rich), the F-150 has come a long way since the late 1960s, when you could have chosen from a Farm and Ranch Special, a Contractor Special or a Heavy Duty Special, none of which attempted to even hint at any degree of comfort, let alone luxury.

Today, you can easily upgrade your way through a range of trucks with increased levels of sumptuousness, all the way to the 2016 Ford F-150 Limited, bristling with luxury features such as powered running boards and leather seats that massage their occupants. Regardless of the trim level and price tag though, the 2016 Ford F-150 remains the truck to beat for the rough and tumble of work or leisure applications, both on and off the tarmac.

Aside from targeting truck-buyers from the frugal to the extravagant, Ford also has its sights on capturing the hearts and minds of the environmentally conscious.

Putting the Pedal to a Different Kind of Metal

With the 2016 F-150, Ford is taking a proactive environmental stance by building further on the radical shift to aluminum body-construction, introduced with the release of the 2015 range. That move reduced the weight of the Ford F-150 by around 700 pounds, which of course, made inroads into the number of miles that can be squeezed from a gallon of fuel.

This innovative use of new materials showed enough environmental leadership for Ford to secure the Green Truck of the Year Award from Green Car Journal. The accolade was recently bestowed upon the 2016 Ford F-150, as reported by MLive Detroit Reporter David Muller, in his article titledWith 'milestone lightweighting,' Ford F-150 named 2016 Green Truck of the Year.

Meanwhile John Rosevear, automotive-writer for The Motley Fool, reveals another exciting development in his Fool article How Ford and Alcoa Will Make the 2016 F-150 Even Lighter. According to Rosevear, it seems that every 2016 Ford F-150 in Ford dealerships near Louisville, KY will comprise components made from a new and even lighter form of aluminum, another first in the automotive world.

These and similar examples of Ford's commitment to staying ahead of the design curve,should ensure the 2016 Ford F-150 and successive generations in years to come, will remain in place as the darling of America's truck fans.
