For the past 27 years, the editors of Popular Science magazine came together annually to compile a list of the most world-changing technologies and products of the year, picking and choosing products that demonstrate out-of-this-world innovation. In the car industry category, the truck named Popular Science Grand Winner deservedly was the Ford F-150, which has changed the industry’s concept of a pickup.
The all-new F-150 is considered the toughest, smartest, most capable, and most efficient model year so far. This pickup boasts 11 class-exclusive features, including a body that uses military-grade aluminum in a variety of non-load-bearing parts. While the aluminum performs just as well as the steel normally used in a car body, it reduces the truck’s weight by around 700 lbs while allowing the F-150 to haul and tow more than it ever has and get 20% better fuel efficiency.
With these technological advances, it’s no surprise that Popular Science named the most popular truck in America as its Grand Winner. For more information on the 2015 F-150 or to see it for yourself, come in to Brown Motors.
