Ford F-150 to Have CNG Engine Option for 2014

July 31, 2013

For about a $10,000 premium, fleet owners will be able to order the half-ton 2014 Ford F-150 with a CNG engine.

Kevin Koswick, Ford's director of North American fleet, leasing and remarketing operations, told Forbes that customers could see a payback in as little as two to three years since natural gas prices are cheaper than gas and diesel. CNG engines and propane systems for larger trucks have been increasing in popularity in recent years, but Ford is the first truck maker to bring the technology down to the half-ton pickup segment.
