This 2014 F-150 is part of Ford's extensive lineup of vehicles with available CNG-prepped engines. Ford expects to sell more than 15,000 gaseous fuel-prepped vehicles this year.
With the money saved using CNG, customers could start to see payback on their investment in as little as 24 to 36 months.
CNG sells for an average of $2.07 per gallon of gasoline equivalent, and is as low as $1 in some parts of the country, representing a significant savings over unleaded regular fuel.
"The response to our CNG F-150 announcement is exciting," said Jon Coleman
"The response to our CNG F-150 announcement is exciting," said Jon Coleman, Ford fleet sustainability and technology manager. "Businesses and fleet customers have been asking Ford to make F-150 available with CNG capability, and I'm glad we'll be able to show a completed upfit this weekend.
"When you add in the likelihood our Qualified Vehicle Modifiers will secure California HOV lane certification for the CNG-only version of F-150," Coleman added, "we're providing our commercial customers with a cost savings and a significant time savings as well."
