Westport Rolls out CNG Bi-Fuel Systems for Ford F-250 and F-350

March 15, 2012

The new Westport WiNG Power System is a fully-integrated, CNG bi-fuel system, and will be available for order on Ford F-250 and F-350 pick-up trucks through authorized Ford dealer/distributors on or about March 19.

Launched last week at the National Truck Equipment Association (NTEA) Work Truck Show, the Westport WiNG Power System is based on Ford’s new 6.2L hardened engine platform. The vehicles run on inexpensive natural gas or ordinary gasoline and offer unparalleled drivability, according to the company.

The Westport WiNG Power System carries a starting price point of $9,750. On average, the Westport WiNG-powered Ford pickups are expected to save fleets upwards of $2 per gallon in fuel costs, and, depending on miles driven, can demonstrate a payback in about two years or less, according to the company.

The Ford F-250 and F-350 pickups with the bi-fuel, Westport WiNG Power System have undergone the same original equipment manufacturer (OEM) testing for safety and durability used by Ford for their gasoline and diesel products, according to the company.

Engineered at the new Westport technical center in Plymouth Michigan, WiNG Power Systems will be installed at the Westport manufacturing facility adjacent to the Ford Kentucky Truck Plant in Louisville. The trucks will be ready to roll when they reach authorized Ford dealers and the installation will add less than 72 hours to the entire order cycle for a new truck.

The 2012 models with Westport WiNG bi-fuel Systems sold through Ford dealers will be EPA certified, and the MY-2013 are expected to offer CARB certification for all models.
