ROUSH CleanTech Reveals 3 New Ford Stripped Chassis Powered by Propane Autogas

February 21, 2013

ROUSH CleanTech expands alternative-fuel technology product offerings with new propane-autogas fuel systems for Ford F-59, F-53, and E-450 stripped chassis.

The Ford F-59 commercial step van chassis and the Ford E-450 stripped chassis adapt to numerous fleet applications. One early adopter of the propane autogas fueled F-59 stripped chassis is the City of Laguna Beach, Calif., for city trolleys.

Built on a 2013 model-year or newer chassis with a 6.8L, V-10 engine, the ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas powered Ford F-53 and F-59 feature a 67-usable gallon propane autogas fuel tank. The ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas powered Ford E-450 stripped chassis comes equipped with a 41-usable gallon propane autogas fuel tank.

Each of the three ROUSH CleanTech fuel systems fulfill certification requirements in all 50 states by the California Air Resources Board and Environmental Protection Agency and achieve the same torque, towing, and horsepower as conventionally fueled models.

In addition to reduced emissions, federal tax credits provide an additional 50-cents-per-gallon savings on fuel costs.

All three platforms are available for immediate order through ROUSH CleanTech, and the vehicles’ production and delivery begins in May.

This is the first of many new Ford product announcements to come from ROUSH CleanTech this year.
