Westport has announced it has received certification from the California Air Resources Board (CARB) for its 2015 model year Westport WiNG Power System Ford F-250 and F-350 pickup trucks with dedicated compressed natural gas (CNG) system.

According to Westport, it is the only natural gas system provider that also currently offers a CARB-certified dedicated Ford F-150 truck in the market.

The Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty 6.2L-powered and CNG-fueled trucks are also certified by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and are available with 17, 23 or 27 gasoline gallon equivalent capacities.

Westport said the existing Ford warranty remains intact on these trucks and is matched by Westport’s own warranty for all like components.

All Westport-operated trucks undergo the same safety testing required for all Ford original equipment manufacturer (OEM) products, the company noted.
