Ford Louisville Assembly Wins EPA Pollution Protection Award | Pittsburgh, PA

Louisville Assembly Plant, which builds the 2022 Ford Escape, recently earned the 2021 Pollution Protection Award from the EPA. This award from the Environmental Protection Agency recognizes the plant’s leadership in waste and pollution reduction.

The EPA recognized Louisville Assembly Plant in part for a new water recycling initiative. Since launching the program in 2020, the employee-developed program helped the plant use 5 million gallons less water from the city of Louisville.

Since Ford ramped up water conservation efforts in 2000, the automaker has helped save more than 12.5 billion gallons of water. The ultimate goal is to only use freshwater for human consumption.

“This award represents Ford’s commitment to make a positive contribution to the environment wherever possible. It isn’t just a win for the Louisville Assembly Plant, but also for our employees, UAW partners, and the entire Louisville community,” said Lisa Drake, chief operating officer, Ford North America.

Ford is committed to making a better planet for future generations by taking action now. It was the first automaker to sign the Better Climate Challenge, which aims to cut greenhouse gas emissions by at least 25 percent over the next decade.

Ford is also changing the landscape when it comes to vehicles. The Ford Mustang Mach-E is one of the most exciting EVs, bar none, and the upcoming F-150 Lightning promises to make electric vehicles a more popular and viable option than ever.

Ford Bronco, Maverick Earn 2022 NACTOY Awards

Ford Bronco | Pittsburgh, PA

For the second year in a row, Ford dominated the North American Car, Truck, and Utility of the Year™ awards. The 2022 Ford Maverick and Bronco earned top NACTOY honors, taking home the titles of Truck of the Year and Utility Vehicle of the Year, respectively.

Last year, Ford also ran these categories with the F-150 taking the top prize for pickups and Mustang Mach-E scoring the award for utility vehicles. Thanks to two of the hottest new Ford vehicles available today, Ford repeats an impressive feat and makes it look easy.

The 2022 Ford Maverick was a natural choice for North American Truck of the Year. It’s available at an impressive starting price, it’s the first truck to offer a standard hybrid engine, and it’s Built Ford Tough®. The Maverick is the kind of truck that even appeals to folks who have never owned a pickup before.

And, of course, the long-awaited and much-hyped Ford Bronco delivers by taking home 2022 North American Utility Vehicle of the Year. The revived and revamped Bronco is incredibly off-road-ready thanks to standard 4×4 capabilities, two powerful engines, and a whole lot of options for customization. And things are only getting better this year with the launch of the Bronco Raptor and Bronco Everglades.
