Ford F-650 In Production
Dear Partners of ROUSH CleanTech,
“Heavier duty vehicles. More range. Reduced fuel costs. Cleaner emissions.”
We have heard the requests from you and your customers for more variety in vehicle availability, especially the heavier GVWR Ford chassis’ that are less fuel economy friendly. We appreciate your input and are excited to announce that the propane autogas powered Ford F-650 chassis cab is now in production!
We engineered and developed the Ford F-650 propane autogas fuel system based on your customers demand for heavier duty platforms operating on alternative fuels. This model is offered in two tank size configurations, an 83 or 45 usable gallon fuel capacity. The dual “saddle” tank design features a single refueling point, replacing the gasoline tank location.
As the market leader in commercial trucks and vans, Ford continues to strengthen their position by offering a full line of commercial vehicles prepped from the factory with gaseous fuel-ready engines. From Ford F-250 through F-650, and E-150 through E-450, and F-53 / F-59 stripped chassis, fleets can experience the benefits of this price-competitive and reliable alternative fuel.
The interest in alternative fuels continue to increase and this new product allows our distribution partners to get in front of customers and prospects with the latest in technology innovation from ROUSH CleanTech. Let’s analyze their fleet together to show them the significant benefits that are possible with their switch to propane autogas. Our team recently completed a similar evaluation for a delivery fleet and over a 200,000 mile lifecycle the fleet operator would save in excess of $65,000 per vehicle by switching his F-650’s from diesel to propane autogas.
We will continue to listen to customers, partners and industry experts on where to focus our attention next. Give us a call at 800.59.ROUSH to set up a meeting with those customers looking for an answer their rising fuel costs.
