Terry's Ford Celebrates as Ford Announces 2014 F-150 Natural Gas Option
The 2014 Ford F-150 will arrive at Terry's Ford of Peotone with an option to run on compressed natural gas, a first for the half-ton pickup segment.
Peotone (I-Newswire) August 11, 2013 - Terry's Ford, a premier Peotone, IL Ford dealership, has passed along the details of a new gaseous-fuel prep option for the 2014 Ford F-150 that will allow the 3.7-liter V6 engine to run on compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied petroleum gas. Such an addition brings Ford to the forefront as the only manufacturer with an available CNG/LPG-capable half-ton pickup. Already home to the award-winning 2013 Ford F-150 lineup of pickup trucks, Terry's Ford will welcome the arrival of the 2014 Ford F-150 featuring the compressed natural gas option upon its release sometime this fall.
A factory-installed, gaseous-fuel prep package including hardened valves, valve seats, pistons, and rings will arrive with the 2014 F-150's available 3.7-liter V6 engine, so the driver may choose to operate on either natural gas or gasoline through separate fuel systems. This package will grant the 2014 F-150 more than 750 miles per tank of gas, depending on chosen tank size.
The typical Ford F-150 offers drivers an average of 23 mpg on the highway. Currently CNG sells for an average price of $2.11 per gallon of gasoline equivalent, and can be purchased for as little as $1 in some areas of the country, while the average cost of unleaded regular fuel is on average nearly $3.66 per gallon.
Ford has seen a steady trend in growth as customers have responded to their new green technology with enthusiasm. The automaker looks to offer eight commercial vehicles with the gaseous-prep option, including the Transit Connect van and wagon, E-Series van, wagon, cutaway and striped cabin, F-Series Super Duty pickup and F-350 chassis cab, and F-650 medium-duty truck, to name a few. Overall, Ford anticipates selling more than 15,000 CNG/LPG-prepped vehicles for the 2013 production year, which is an increase over the 2012 total models sold by 25 percent.
