The first-ever CNG-capable Ford-150 has rolled off the assembly line in Kansas City. This should provide a cleaner and more efficient alternative to the all-new 2014 F-150 for customers willing to switch from conventional gas to compressed natural gas.
As the best-selling vehicle in America for the last 28 consecutive years, a CNG-capable F-150 could go a very long way toward improving the environment. With the bi-fuel CNG/LPG engine package, the F-150 is equipped with a 3.7-liter V6 that is factory-ready to operate on either natural gas or gasoline through separate fuel systems. Depending on the tank size selected, it can go as far as 750 miles on combined tanks of gasoline and CNG, while returning an EPA-estimated rating of 23 mgp on the highway and 19 mpg combined.
This also translates into better prices at the pump. CNG currently sells for an average of $2.10 per gallon of gasoline equivalent and is even as low as $1 in some parts of the country. In addition, 20 states will offer or are already offering tax incentives or rebates for CNG-converted vehicles. By comparison, the national average for unleaded regular fuel is $3.29 per gallon.
