Landi Renzo USA has secured certifications from the Environmental Protection Agency and the California Air Resources Board for several Ford F-Series and E-Series models that run on compressed natural gas.
Ford’s F-250 and F-350 bi-fuel CNG vehicles, equipped with a 6.2L V- engine, have been certified by the EPA, according to Landi Renzo. The Ford F-450 and F-550 dedicated CNG trucks, featuring a 6.8L V-10 engine, were also approved by the EPA. The order cutoff for the vehicles is Aug. 2.
The EPA also approved F-650 and F-750 dedicated CNG vehicles that include a 6.8L V10 engine. The order cutoff for these vehicles will be announced later. Meanwhile, F-250 and F-350 dedicated CNG vehicles equipped with a 6.2L V8 engine were approved by CARB. The estimated cutoff is also Aug. 2, according to Landi Renzo.
Both the Ford F-53 and F-59 dedicated CNG strip chassis were also approved by the EPA, and feature a 6.8L V-10 engine. The order cutoff for both will be announced in the future, though the estimated time for the F-59 is sometime around September or October.
Also, the Ford E-350 and E-450 dedicated CNG cutaway and strip chassis were approved by CARB, and both feature a 6.2L V-8.
All August cutoff dates are subject to change, according to Landi Renzo. Landi Renzo USA is a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier for both CNG systems and installation.
