Westport to Add CNG Ford F-450 and F-550 in 2013

December 20, 2012

Westport Innovations Inc. announced that it will expand its product offerings with the introduction of natural gas powered versions of the Ford F-450 and F-550 Super Duty trucks in mid-2013.

The new product additions will complement Westport's WiNG System powered Ford F-250 and F-350 trucks.

The new 2013 F-450 and F-550 trucks will be built at the Westport Kentucky Integration Center (WKIC), a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM)-audited facility, located adjacent to Ford Motor Company's Kentucky Truck Plant. Consistent with the Westport WiNG System powered F-250s and F-350s that are currently built at WKIC, the new models will be assembled using a fully integrated system and will undergo the same validation for safety and durability used by Ford, according to the company.

Trucks will be delivered using the Ford transportation system providing cost efficiencies in delivery to the end customer.

Westport is also currently developing relationships with service body companies to offer installation of second unit bodies on its F-250 and F-350 pickup trucks. In addition to the installation of the Westport WiNG System, customers may now choose the option to install second unit bodies with a single ship through, saving time and delivery costs, according to the company.

These service body options will also be available on the new F-450 and F-550 models.
