Ford CEO Is the 2022 MotorTrend Person of the Year  

The CEO of the world's second-largest carmaker has been named MotorTrend's Person of the Year for 2022. Ford Top Man Jim Farley was recognized for his company's recent resurgence and its vast contributions to society in sustainability, accessibility, and automation.

Ford is a global powerhouse with 115 factories worldwide that make everything from luxury cars to heavy-duty trucks. The company employs more than 200,000 people, and its number one brand-name vehicle is the F-Series pickup truck. The model started production in 1954 and continues to be produced for the 2019 model year.

Ford CEO Jim Farley said he thanked MotorTrend for choosing him. Motor Trend's Person of the Year honor is given each year to a significant figure or event that impacts automotive culture and technology in the U.S. The person chosen must survive for at least one year, giving rise to the acronym of MOTY, or Most Obstinate, Undisputed, and Unpredictable.

Ford has been a massive force in the automotive world and has been involved in many developments that have changed our lives. The company has quite a long history of creativity and new technology and continues to push forward with innovations in its vehicles. These innovations include hybrid technology, switching between gasoline-powered engines and electric drive, self-parking features, and automatic emergency braking.

Ford's sustainability efforts are another area where the company shines. The company uses recycled plastic from recycled shipping containers to produce poly-carbonate for its F-150 trucks. This helps cut down on pollution from plastics produced by petroleum.

Another area where Ford makes contributions is accessibility for people of varying abilities. The company has been a leader in making vehicles more accessible to people with disabilities. For example, it developed the Accessible Pedal System, which allows individuals with mobility issues to drive standard cars. This system uses a hand-pedal system instead of a foot-pedal system and operates like an automatic transmission without requiring its driver to use their hands.

Ford CEO Jim Farley has been a driving force in the company's recent successes. He took over from Mark Fields in May 2017 after taking on significant positions at Ford for years. Since he became CEO, Ford has undergone several changes that include cutting costs, selling its European business, and purchasing transportation businesses in China. The company has also undertaken significant changes to its F-Series line of vehicles, updated its best-selling Explorer SUV, and made a substantial investment in Argo AI, an artificial intelligence company founded by former leaders of Google and Uber self-driving programs.

Farley is dedicated to making sustainable change throughout the world. He plans to use his newfound recognition from MotorTrend to further those goals. He has been a leader in the industry for many years and is passionate about vehicle technology and its future impact on our way of life.

It is clear that Farley is the new face of the automotive industry, and he will continue to be a significant force moving forward. For more information on this, you can visit our dealership in Texas.
