Climate-Friendly Truck Standards Mean Happier Pickup Owners

New fuel efficiency standards set by the EPA to cut greenhouse gas pollution deliver stronger, cleaner technology for owners of pickup trucks used in outdoor and natural resource businesses and recreation, according to Trucks That Work, a new report released today by the National Wildlife Federation. Under the final standard, heavy duty pickup and van owners save over $6,000 over the life of the vehicle – even after accounting for the cost of new technology. “A driver who trades in an ’05 Ford F150 for an ’11 is effectively cutting 75 cents off the cost of every gallon at today’s prices and saving hundreds of dollars a year on gas, that now can be spent at home or in their business.”
