2014 Ford F-150 Will Offer Compressed Natural Gas Capability

2014 Ford F-150 Will Offer Compressed Natural Gas Capability

FLUSHING, Mich.- Ford Motor Company's half-ton pickup truck is undergoing some changes for 2014, and will make the automaker the only manufacturer with an available compressed natural gas-capable half-ton pickup! The 2014 Ford F-150 will offer compressed natural gas capability!

Available this fall, the 2014 Ford F-150 equipped with a 3.7-liter V6 engine will be available with a factory-installed, gaseous-fuel prep package that will allow the vehicle to operate on either natural gas or gasoline, using separate fuel systems. The CNG/LPG package will allow the F-150 to be capable of achieving more than 750 miles per tank of gas, depending on the fuel tank size.

Before a customer selects a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier, CNG/LPG engine prep from the factory will cost about $315. From there, upfits will cost approximately $7,500-$9,500 depending on the size of the fuel tank.

However, the benefits of CNG conversions far outweigh the costs of installation since users could start to see payback on their investment in as little at 24-36 months! CNG conversions allow for lower vehicle operating costs, and provide stability for fluctuating fuel prices since compressed natural gas only costs about $2.11 per gallon of gasoline equivalent on average! In some parts of the country, it's priced as low as $1, while the national average for unleaded regular fuel is $3.66 per gallon.

Over the next year, the 2014 Ford F-150 will offer compressed natural gas capability, joining seven other commercial vehicle with gaseous-prep options! For more information, discover Delehanty Ford.
