Ford Reduces Water Usage in Production

We here at Lindsay Ford of Wheaton will admit that there's quite a bit in this world that we likely take for granted. For example, when we consider what a truly precious resource is, water is not the first thing to come to mind. Still many people in the world go without clean drinking water, while Ford uses nearly 40,000 gallons of it to manufacture just one car. That's why we're proud to announce that the American automaker is officially taking steps to reduce the amount of H2O that they use in their vehicle production by as much as 30 percent in the next three years!

Of course, we'd expect nothing less from the company that employs electric yard tractors and generates electricity from large solar panel arrays. Being green is simply in their nature, and this latest step only proves it. Still, many are wondering, and rightfully so, exactly how Ford plans to achieve this lofty goal in such a short period of time.

The plan is to replace the current method of lubricating equipment with water, and instead implement a method called "dry-machining." Instead equipment will be misted with atomized oil, while an advanced filtration system that's currently in development will work to recycle the water that's still necessarily being put to use.

We're not sure about you, but our team at 11250 Veirs Mill Road Wheaton, MD 20902 feels much better about the environment impact of vehicles in the new Ford lineup knowing that they're produced in a manner that's more friendly to our eco-system and resources. And whether you're a diehard performance enthusiast or a family commuter, you can rest assured knowing that you vehicle comes from a solid manufacturing background.

Of course, if you simply want to test drive vehicles like the Ford Expedition, Taurus, and Mustang, then feel free to contact us online or by phone at (888) 764-8614. We can easily arrange a test drive on any new or used Ford models that we carry, and we're more than happy to answer any questions that may be plaguing you about them too.
