Ford F-150 Pickup Truck Named Popular Science Grand Winner

Ford F-150

With its new aluminum body and powerful engine, the Ford F-150 went to the top of the Popular Science Magazine List and was named its Grand Winner.

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.
