PRLog - Aug. 30, 2013 - For many drivers, full size trucks still conjure thoughts of gas guzzling engines and high emissions. Innovations from Ford, though, have done wonders to alleviate this misguided stereotype for today’s pickup truck drivers.
The Ford F-150, which will soon be available as a natural gas vehicle in NJ
Heavy duty Ford trucks, including the Ford F-450 and F-550 Super Duty models, have come a long way in the battle for reduced emissions and improved fuel efficiency. Tom’s Ford has been proud to play a crucial role in bringing these natural gas vehicles to NJ drivers.
The secret to these innovations is the Westport WiNG Power System, which allows trucks like these to make use of compressed natural gas as a source of fuel. These OEM-quality systems, which drivers can order right along with their new truck, allow for a drastically improved experience in terms of environmental impact and efficiency.
Compressed natural gas is an alternative fuel source, comprised primarily of methane. Unlike gasoline, compressed natural gas won’t have a negative impact on soil or ground water. It is also non-toxic and non-corrosive, as well as the cleanest of all fossil fuels. Best of all, its primary emissions are the same as those that we exhale every day.
Ford F-150 to Join the Ranks of Natural Gas Vehicles at Tom’s Ford
With so much to gain from the use of compressed natural gas as a fuel source, it’s only logical that drivers have been eager to see it implemented in Ford’s flagship pickup. Starting in September, drivers at Tom’s Ford will be able to order the natural gas F-150 with the Westport WiNG Power System.
This natural gas system outfits the 2014 Ford F-150 with a factory-installed gaseous-fuel prep package, including hardened valves, valve seats, pistons, and rings, which allow the truck to run on compressed natural gas in addition to gasoline with its existing 3.7L V6 engine.
A major development for pickup fans, this enhancement represents a major leap forward for both Ford and Tom’s Ford. Drivers can expect this clean and safe alternative to traditional diesel and gasoline to provide them with a practical solution to their low-emission needs.
