When Ford first introduced the 2015 Ford F-150 pickup truck, the industry knew that it was going to shake up the pickup truck segment—but no one truly understood just how much it would do so. Now, the number one pickup has picked up yet another award after being named Kelley Blue Book’s Best Overall Truck Brand.
The F-150 was recognized by the prestigious automotive website for its innovative “aluminum-intensive architecture that saves as much as 700 pounds and delivers a subsequent increase in fuel economy.” This is the sixth time Ford has been honored with this award.
Along with Kelley Blue Book’s Best Overall Truck Brand award, the 2015 Ford F-150 has earned almost 30 awards and accolades, including the 2015 North American Truck/Utility of the Year, 2015 Motor Trend Pickup Truck of the Year, and the Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Overall.

Ford has announced the Alan Mulally Leadership in Engineering Scholarship, which is a $1 million scholarship program that honors the company’s former CEO by awarding financial assistance to outstanding students who are pursuing degrees in automotive engineering.
The Alan Mulally Leadership in Engineering Scholarship program will award ten one-time $10,000 scholarships over the course of ten years, beginning in 2015. The scholarships will go to outstanding sophomore and junior engineering students at partner universities around the world.
“Alan’s engineering background and data-driven decision making paved the way for the extraordinary leadership he provided at Ford,” said Ford Executive Chairman Bill Ford in a recent news release. “We are honoring his legacy by providing scholarships to students who demonstrate the strong engineering ability that is required to develop into the next generation of leaders for our industry.”
Ford has a long history of making education a priority, with a belief that education is the cornerstone for a brighter future. Education has been the primary focus for the Ford Fund since 1949, and just last year contributed $8.5 million to education programs.

The Ford Motor Company has always had plenty to boast about—Henry Ford, the company’s founder, basically invented the modern automobile market via the world famous Model T and the assembly line, after all. Since then, the classic Blue Oval has built a reputation for excellence, and now they can celebrate accomplishments like fifty years of the Ford Mustang, the world’s best-selling car (Focus), and America’s favorite truck series (the F-Series). Most importantly, though, Ford has accomplished all of this as one of the most ethical companies in the entire world.
For the fifth consecutive year, Ethisphere Institute tapped the Ford Motor Company with one of their exclusive World’s Most Ethical Companies designations. Ford is one of just 144 total companies named to the list—and they are the only automaker on the list for 2014. To be named to the list, “WME honorees not only promote ethical business standards and practices internally, they exceed legal compliance minimums and shape future industry standards by introducing best practices today.”
Here at Cambridge Classic Ford, we pride ourselves on carrying the Ford Motor Company’s ethical excellence on a personal level, down to the very last detail of your Ford buying experience. So come by and check out the Mustang, Focus, F-Series, or any other Ford vehicle today!
