Ford Motor Company, the industry's Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) truck leader, is keeping far ahead of the industry curve - and government regulations - as it continues to put cleaner trucks and sport utility vehicles (SUVs) on the road. Ford passed the two million LEV truck mark in February, less than one and a half years after beginning its industry-leading environmental initiative. The large majority of SUVs and pickups are not mandated to be low emission prior to the 2004 model year. However, as of the 1999 model year, all Ford SUVs are LEV and Ford Windstar minivans meet Ultra Low Emission Vehicle standards. All Ford F-Series pickup trucks, starting with the 2000 model year, also are LEV.
