Westport Gains EPA Certification to Modify 2017 Ford Trucks

December 08, 2016

Westport has gained approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to equip 2017-model-year Ford vehicles with its WiNG Power System that enables the vehicles to run compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquid propane gas (LPG), also known as propane autogas.

Vancouver, B.C.-based Westport gained approval for the F-150 5.0L CNG and LPG, Transit 3.7L CNG, F-450/F-550/F-650/F-750/F-59 6.8L CNG, and E-450 6.8L CNG.

Westport has also streamlined the supply chain through a Ford-approved ship-through process for the F-150, F-250, F-350, and Transit, according to the company.

Westport has been certified under Ford's Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) program that allows the vehicles to retain their factory warranties after the modification.
