Randall Reed’s Prestige Ford is proud to have received the eTex Stewardship Award. This recognizes businesses that have taken step to make their business more energy efficient. Prestige Ford management is constantly seeking out new ways to create a more eco-friendly workplace. One of our recent upgrades was energy efficient lighting around the Garland-based Ford dealership.
“We feel it is important that we do our part to help conserve energy and reduce the size of our environmental footprint,” said, Justin Wright, General Manager/Operating Partner of Prestige Ford. “By taking steps in various areas of our business, such as upgrading to eco-friendly lighting, we know over time that will add up to make a difference.”
That is a philosophy found throughout the family-owned dealerships and with Ford Motor Co., as well. Ford is known for making environmental stride in both their manufacturing processes and in the vehicles themselves.
Eco did you know?
- Rice hulls are the latest sustainable material used in Ford F-150. That’s right! The hulls reinforce plastic used in an electrical harness in 2014 F-150.
- Other eco-friendly materials in F-Series trucks are soybeans and post-industrial recycled cotton . One 2014 Ford F-150 truck uses the equivalent of about 10 pairs of jeans, 26 bath towels or 31 T-shirts as carpet insulation or sound absorber.
- Eco-friendly materials complement fuel efficient F-Series powertrains, including an available 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine, which improves fuel economy up to 20 percent and reduces CO2 emissions up to 15 percent compared to similarly capable V8 engines.
