A company called Unifi crushes, melts, and stretches recycled water bottles into a sewable fabric called "Repreve yarn." Ford's been using it in their vehicles since 2012, and they say they'll divert 9 million plastic bottles from landfills now that Repreve is the 2015 F-150's standard seat material. » 3/20/15 4:42pm 3/20/15 4:42pm

The Ford F-150 Ecoboost Engine Might Kinda Suck, Says Ward's [UPDATE]

A Nissan Altima has never made me smile, nor has a Chevrolet Cruze –- yet both are cars I'd recommend to people looking in those respective segments if they want… » 1/27/13 12:00pm 1/27/13 12:00pm
