Ford F-250/350 Trucks With Westport WiNG™ Power System Now Available For Service Body Upfits

"With the KNAP-Link™ designed service bodies, we can utilize our extensive distributor network to bring quality upfits to our customers and integrate with the Westport READY-link compressed natural gas (CNG) conversion," said Chris Weiss, Vice President, Engineering at Knapheide.

The Westport-Knapheide agreement ensures an integrated original equipment manufacturer (OEM) experience for fleet customers, and provides uncompromised quality and testing of the installed bi-fuel system and service bodies. Westport READY-link process occurs alongside the Westport WiNG Power System on the Ford Super Duty trucks at the Westport Kentucky Integration Center, a Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier audited facility, before the trucks are shipped to local Knapheide dealerships for service body upfit.

Westport READY-link will be available for order on Ford F-250 and F-350 box-delete trucks with the Westport WiNG Power System beginning April 1, 2013. The Super Duty trucks are equipped with a standard 18.4 or an optional 24.5 gasoline gallon equivalent Type-4 composite CNG fuel cylinder, the lightest, non-corrosive cylinder technology available in the market. Starting at an industry leading price of $9,500, the Westport systems are available exclusively through Westport-authorized Ford dealerships.
