Ford has aligned their research and development with other consumer companies to better utilize plant based plastics. Ford is already using a soy based bio-foam that has taken the place of nearly 5 million pounds of petroleum annually in the production of new Ford vehicles. The all new redesigned 2013 Ford Escape contains at least 20 recycled water bottles that have been repurposed into the carpet of the vehicle. Those in the Northwest appreciate efforts to make our community and environment a healthy better place. The lightweight plastics are durable and have allowed Ford to further increase the fuel efficiency of the cars and trucks offered by Gresham Ford.
