When trying to improve fuel economy across America and reduce harmful emissions, you have to look at what people are driving. And with the Ford F-150 holding the title of best-selling truck for the last half decade, you don’t have to look very far. This is why it was such a big deal when Ford announced it was making a CNG-capable F-150, a truck that can run on cleaner-burning, cheap compressed natural gas.
And now, it’s finally here. The first-ever CNG-capable 2014 Ford F-150 has rolled off the assembly line in Kansas City and thousands more are coming. Ford expects to offer eight more CNG-capable models by next summer and aims to sell more than 15,000 this year.
When equipped with a bi-fuel CNG/LPG engine package, the 3.7-liter V6 F-150 can achieve more than 750 miles on combined tanks of gasoline and CNG, with an EPA-estimated rating of 23 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined.
