The Ford Motor Company has a rich legacy and an important place in American culture and history. From the Model T, to the assembly line, all the way to the current versions of the Mustang and F-150, the Blue Oval is constantly pushing the industry to new heights of performance and creativity. Recently, that 111-year history of engineering innovation was recognized when Ford won the Golden Gear Award.
Jim Holland, vice president of Vehicle Components and Systems Engineering for Ford, accepted the award at the Washington Automotive Press Association’s 30th Anniversary Gala. The award honors both the company and its remarkable founder, Henry Ford.
“On behalf of all the men and women of Ford Motor Company, I’d like to thank the Washington Automotive Press Association for the Golden Gear Award,” said Holland. He states, “Henry Ford left us with quite a legacy, and the Ford team continues driving innovation through every part of our business to improve people’s lives. This is what has always defined us as a company. Through innovation, we are changing the way the world moves.”
Today, Ford’s emphasis on innovation has resulted in new technologies like the F-150’s aluminum-infused frame, EcoBoost engines, many safety and convenience features, and much more. To be part of the Ford legacy, a legacy which will continue far into the future, come see us here at Sun State Ford today.
