2015 Ford F-150 Wins Altair Enlighten Award

August 5th, 2015

15_F-150The 2015 Ford F-150 just received the Enlighten Award from Michigan-based Altair and The Center for Automotive Research, recognizing the technological feat of making the truck stronger while reducing its curb weight by 700 pounds. We at Borgman Commercial are proud to distribute America’s Favorite Pickup for 38 straight years.

You’ve heard all about the New F-150. Shedding over 700 pounds since last year’s model, the all new F-150 was made famous for employing a military grade aluminum alloy body atop a high-strength steel frame, giving it incredible, lasting durability and a vastly superior power-to-weight ratio. This innovation translates to you with improved fuel economy, higher towing and payload capacity, and it’s much more resistant to dings and dents.
