First 2016 Ford F-150 CNG Rolls Off Assembly Line



The first 2016 Ford F-150 capable of running on compressed natural gas or propane has rolled off the assembly line.


Equipped with a 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine, the 2016 Ford F-150 is available with a factory-installed, gaseous-fuel prep package that includes hardened valves, valve seats, pistons and piston rings so that it can operate on natural gas, propane or gasoline through separate fuel systems. The addition to the lineup also makes Ford the only automaker to offer a half-ton pickup capable of running on CNG or propane.

According to Ford, the F-150 CNG is capable of achieving over 750 miles on combined tanks of gasoline and CNG, depending on tank size. It gets an estimated 22 mpg on the highway and 18-mpg combined. The CNG/LPG engine prep from the factory costs $315, but the customer then has to choose a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier to supply fuel tanks, fuel lines and unique fuel injectors. That cost can range from $6,000 to $9,500 depending on fuel tank capacity.

“It’s exciting to see the first F-150s with the CNG/propane-prepped 5.0-liter V8 headed to customers,” said Jon Coleman, Ford fleet sustainability and technology manager. “Whether running on gasoline, gaseous fuel or both, the 5.0-liter V8 F-150 offers hardworking customers terrific towing and payload and now, the ability to operate on alternative fuel.”

Who the hell in their right mind would buy that. Give it 5 years before everything starts to screw up and it cost as much to fix it as you paid for it. I've had ford trucks all my life and ever since 2008 they look like Chit. And i've heard nothing but bad reviews when it comes to fixing the 2008's and Newer. And whats up with this crap that you can't get a manual trans anymore. Dodge is the only one who still has a manual.

i wish ford would put said "supply fuel tanks, fuel lines and unique fuel injectors" in the truck themselves, at least that way the customer could bring it to the dealer when it breaks & say FIX IT under warranty. no b.s. with the "Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier"... just my initial thoughts
