Eco-Friendly Upgrades and Modifications for Your Ford F150

Posted by on December 18, 2020 in Eco-Friendly with 0 Comments

Driving a large pickup truck around town may cause you to receive some dirty looks. Trucks like Ford and Chevy don’t have great reputations for being environmentally friendly. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t make modifications and upgrades to make it that way.

While companies like Ford are planning on creating electric trucks and more eco-friendly vehicles, we can’t necessarily wait for that. The sooner you can do something to help the environment, the better.

So, consider making these eco-friendly upgrades and modifications so you feel less guilty while driving around town in your pickup truck.

Intercooler

To begin, you can replace the intercooler that came with your original model. This will enhance your turbocharger and increase its efficiency. This allows for cooler and denser air to reach your truck’s engine in a greater amount than usual.

If you don’t want to swap out the entire intercooler, you can replace the intercooler pipes.

Programmer

We live in the time of the future! While electric and eco-friendly vehicles rule the road, why not upgrade your modern technology inside your truck as well? With a programmer, you can boost your performance and achieve fuel efficiency.

With the click of a button, you can also diagnose problems with your vehicle and even prevent some major issues from popping up. Not to mention, this device is super futuristic and will make you feel like a savvy superhero with it in your car.

Cat-Back Exhaust

 If you get annoyed or angry when you see dirty exhaust flowing out the back of someone’s exhaust pipe while on the road, you may want to invest in this eco-friendly upgrade. A cat-back exhaust is a bent-shape pipe with a large opening that gets rid of exhaust gases fast.

It keeps the gasses moving instead of staying in one place and even adds an aggressive sound to your already big and intimidating truck while you’re driving along the highway.

Get Better MPG

 It’s no question that trucks aren’t the most fuel-efficient vehicles on the market. However, there are some things you can do to enhance your MPG and help the environment a bit.

One way to achieve this is not to weigh your truck down with extra add-ons. That means no fancy front grills or heavy bed covers. While you may want to add something to make your truck look cool, why not add it to the inside of the cab? If you really want to scratch that itch, replace the steering wheel with a Ford Raptor carbon fiber steering wheel.

Another way to get the most MPG from your truck is to keep the air conditioning off. If you’re driving under 40 mph on a nice day, roll the windows down and enjoy the fresh air. You’d be surprised at just how much fuel your air conditioning can use while driving around town.

Remember, using less fuel means less carbon gases, which means a more positive impact on the environment.
