Ford has always been a driving force of innovation in the automotive industry, with more than 100 years of creative and efficient new vehicles and products. Just last month – Ford was awarded with the coveted Golden Gear Award.
This award, granted by the Washington Automotive Press Association (WAPA), recognizes Ford’s “111-year history of engineering innovation,” additionally honoring Henry Ford himself for his vision that changed the automobile game.
The award distribution occurred at WAPA’s 30th Anniversary Gala, a time to reflect on which auto companies have truly maintained a legacy of powerful, efficient vehicles. In light of so many excellent competitors, Ford still remains at the top.
At the gala, one of the vice presidents at Ford, Jim Holland, accepted the award, citing the promising path laid out by Henry Ford and how “the Ford team continues driving innovation through every part of our business to improve people’s lives.”
With Ford EcoBoost engines and the best-selling truck F-Series all over the roads, it’s easy to see that Ford continues to fulfill their namesake’s ideas.
