There’s never a bad time to think about the environmental impact of your car, or the impact fuel costs have on your wallet. But with long days and the long road trips ahead of most drivers, summer is an especially good time to go green in a new Ford truck or car. And here at your Shelbyville, KY Ford dealership, we’ve got you covered.

For starters, it’s hard to go wrong with a hybrid model, and the 2017 Ford C-Max Hybrid is a great choice. With the space to pack up your luggage, the power to produce 188 horsepower, and an EPA-estimated combined fuel economy of 40 miles per gallon, the 2017 Ford C-Max Hybrid allows you to really enjoy your drive experience while you enjoy the savings on gas for a long trip.

You can also opt for the 2017 Ford Focus SEL, which utilizes a flex fuel engine to give you increased mileage and decreased emissions without losing the exciting drive experience that has made the Ford Focus such a hit. And if you need to go big, you can still enjoy a greener choice with the 2017 Ford F-150. In fact, this powerful truck has been honored multiple times for its fuel efficiency. A “Greener Choice” designation from the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE,) and a Top Green Vehicle award in the AAA Green Car Guide are just some of the more recent accolades the 2017 Ford F-150 has earned for its eco-friendly features.

So this summer, go ahead and make a priority out of the environment – and save on fuel while you’re at it – with a visit to O’Brien Ford of Shelbyville. We’ll get you into a green vehicle that suits your needs, whether it’s the compact excitement of a drive in a 2017 Ford Focus or all the power and capabilities that come with a 2017 Ford F-150. Louisville and Lawrenceburg drivers are just a short trip away from the eco-friendly model that will make all their long trips a little better.
