Ford to offer 2016 F-150 half-ton pickup with ability to run on CNG, propane, from Vehicle Service Pros.
Ford will offer the 2016 F-150 with an available gaseous-fuel prep package that enables 5.0L V8-powered models to run on clean, low-cost compressed natural gas or propane, making Ford the only manufacturer of a CNG/propane-capable half-ton pickup.
The 2016 Ford F-150 with 5.0L V8 engine will be available to order this summer with a factory-installed, gaseous-fuel prep package that includes upgraded intake and exhaust valves and valve seats to ensure the engine performs to Built Ford Tough standards customers expect.
“We surveyed customers likely to use natural gas or propane, and 72 percent told us they want to have these alternative-fuel capabilities available on F-150 with the 5.0L V8 engine,” says Jon Coleman, Ford fleet sustainability and technology manager. “We expect the gaseous-fuel prep package will be even more popular than it was on the 2014 F-150 with the 3.7L V6 engine, given the capability of the 2016 F-150 5.0L V8.”
