Big Moves.

2018 has been a great year for Ford so far. Between a range of awards for its lineup, philanthropy, and exciting moves, big things are happening at Ford Motor Company. We're also thrilled with the many technological developments and student-geared programs that the automaker has revealed this year.

For starters, the company has decided to move its electric and autonomous vehicle teams back to Detroit, to a refurbished factory in the historic neighborhood of Corktown. Ford hopes this will lead to the even faster development of more electric and autonomous vehicles.

Ford is also investigating cleaner, more productive transport options in cities. The company is expanding the Ford Transit Plug-In Hybrid trial to more cities. It is also continuing to foster education by investing in its robotics mentorship program to help inspire the next generation of engineers.

Ford Gives Back.

Philanthropy is another area that Ford has cultivated this year. Ford has donated 38 vehicles to support hurricane recovery efforts. It also gave the Freedom Rising Star award to a Detroit-area teen for her entrepreneurial work. In addition, 2,000 middle school children participated in the Scholars Experience program, which celebrated "Black Girl Magic" and female achievements.

Excellent Products.

Ford's products have also experienced success this year, as evidenced by a variety of awards and honors. The Ford Mustang, for instance, became the best-selling sports coupe in America for the third year in a row and will enter the NASCAR Cup in 2019.

Ford recently won five categories in the Vincentric Best Fleet Value awards, more than any other brand besides Toyota. And the F-150, which was one of the Vincentric winners, topped the full-size pickup truck for fuel economy with its highly efficient diesel engine.
