Not only can Iowans power up with renewable corn-based ethanol fuels, but the new Ford F-150 trucks are also built from bio-based and recycled materials — from the inside and out.
Soy-based foam is used for the seat backs, head restraints and seat cushions. Ford was the first automaker to use soy-based foam, beginning in 2008.
Ford uses soybeans and post-consumer recycled tires in exterior mirrors and seals. Recycled cotton and blue-jean production scrap are used for sound insulation and padding.
In addition, the wiring harness includes 10 percent rice hull content, and the fuel lines are made from bio-based nylon.
All the weight-saving aluminum in the Ford truck body is recyclable metal, helping reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
In total, Ford diverts 2.7 million plastic bottles from landfills annually.
