Ford has actually started production of 2016 F-150 vehicles with the ability of working on pressed gas. The automaker hasn’t already offered a CNG-compatible F-150 because the 2014 model year, or before the truck’s total overhaul.
The very first 2016 Ford F-150 with natural gas compatibility rolled off the line at the Kansas City Assembly Plant today. The F-150 could operate on gas or propane with separate energy systems when outfitted with a 5.0-liter V-8 engine along with a prep plan that includes solidified shutoffs, valve seats, pistons, and piston rings.
Ford states that the F-150 could achieve an array of more than 750 miles on consolidated storage tanks of CNG as well as gasoline, depending upon the dimension of the tank. The package deal itself runs $315 from the factory, however that doesn’t include the cost of the gas tanks, fuel source lines, as well as unique energy injectors. The car manufacturer states these alterations normally go between $6,000 to $9,500. However, gas prices these days aren’t considerably below rates for traditional gasoline, making the package deal a little a hard sell for many vehicle drivers.
Now that the F-150 can operate on natural gas once more, Ford currently offers eight cars with the gas preparation option. Other CNG-compatible cars from Ford include the Transportation, Transit Attach, E-Series exploded view as well as removed f-250, f-350 and also chassis Super Duty, F-350 to F-550 Super Duty chassis taxi, F-650 and F-750 framework taxicab, as well as F-53 and also F-59 removed chassis versions.
