Westport Innovations will offer a compressed natural gas (CNG) 2016 F-150 this summer that's been certified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board, the company has announced.
Westport will equip the 2016-MY F-150 with its WiNG Power System, and offer it to fleets as a dedicated or bi-fuel CNG truck. The system is available with the 5.0L V-8 F-150. Ford announced it would re-introduce a factory gaseous-prep package for the 2016 model year F-150. The option was available on the 2014-MY F-150.
The Ford F-150 pickup truck is available with a 17-gasoline-gallon-equivalent (GGE) or 23-GGE tank. Westport engineers are evaluating underbody tank options as well. The existing factory warranty remains intact.
