Ford Environmentalism | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL

Just Capital recently released its 2022 list of the Most JUST Companies and ranked Ford No. 1 among all automakers and partsmakers. Ford was tops in its industry thanks to, among other things, its commitment to delivering awesome new electrified vehicles like the Mustang Mach-E and F-150 Lightning.

Ford earned the No. 1 spot in its field and No. 20 overall on the 2022 Most JUST Companies list. Among the reasons, Just Capital praised Ford for recycling 90% of the waste it generates and pulling 10% of all its electricity from renewable resources.

“At Ford, our goal is to create a positive impact on people and the planet. Because the future of this company centers on a purpose bigger than building vehicles,” said Mary Wroten, director of global sustainability and ESG at Ford Motor Company.

Part of that goal includes a $50 billion investment in electric vehicles through 2026, which is already paying dividends with the likes of the all-new F-150 Lightning. Expect Ford to launch even more exciting EVs in the months and years ahead, making it easier than you could imagine to go electric and cut your carbon footprint.

Tips for Hauling with Your New Ford F-150

Hauling With F-150 | Packey Webb Ford | Downers Grove, IL

If you’re looking for a truck that does some heavy-duty hauling, the 2022 Ford F-150 is unsurpassed. The new 2022 Ford F-150 offers best-in-class towing up to 14,000 pounds[1] and best-in-class payload up to 3,325 pounds.[2] But even with all that power, you’ll need to know a few tips for using your truck properly.

Do your research

While those max numbers are certainly impressive, every version of the F-150 offers slightly different capacities based on its engine, cab style, bed size, and so on. Before you hook up a trailer or put something heavy in the truck bed, make sure you check your owner’s manual or doorjamb and see what you can carry.

Use the tools at your disposal

If you’re getting a new 2022 Ford F-150, towing and hauling is easy even if it’s your first time. The new F-150 offers advanced features like Smart Hitch and Smart Trailer Tow Connector, which make hooking up a trailer surprisingly easy. With available Onboard Scales, your F-150 can tell you exactly how much weight is being carried in the bed so that you don’t have to guess how close you are to maxing out on payload.

And there’s even more where that came from. The new F-150 even gives you confidence for maneuvering with a trailer attached thanks to features like Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ and Trailer Sway Control. If you want a truck for hauling, the 2022 Ford F-150 is tops in more ways than one.

Check out the new F-150 at Packey Webb Ford in Downers Grove, Illinois, and see for yourself why Ford has been the first name in all things truck for almost 50 years.
