WHAT FUEL STANDARDS FORCE:

The New F-150 Will Change Your Life--Even If You Never Buy a Pickup (MICHAEL FRANK, 11/21/14, Outside)

You're not buying a pickup. Ever. But Ford's new 2015 F-150 is going to change your life for the better. Why?

Because it's going to be roughly 700 pounds lighter than its predecessor, thanks to a brand-new, breakthrough aluminum body and frame. And that's big news, because a lighter F-150 is predicted to get up to 20 percent better fuel economy.

Yeah, and...? And each year about one in every 20 vehicles sold in the U.S. is an F-150--one of these trucks for every Prius sold. Over the past decade, the average is about 700,000 Ford trucks sold per year. And if each one gets 20 percent better fuel economy, we're talking millions of gallons of gas not burnt up and shot into the atmosphere. But that's just the start.
