Landi Renzo USA, a division of Landi Renzo Group, a provider of alternative-fuel systems, announced the company will offer the Ford F-150 with compressed natural gas (CNG) for model-year 2018 with Ford ship-thru strategically located adjacent to the Ford assembly plant in Kansas City, Mo.
Landi Renzo USA is also introducing a new warranty program on all of its CNG-fueled systems beginning with MY-2018 Ford vehicles with three-years/50,000 miles, compared to the industry average of three-Years/36,000 miles.
As a Ford-approved Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) system developer, Landi Renzo USA is the first to offer the all-new F-150 truck for MY-2018 with 5.0L gaseous prep engine via Ford dealers as a Ship-Thru.
“The adaptable F-150 will be a hit with our fleet customers and it’s exciting to add the all-purpose pickup with CNG to our comprehensive Ford product line,” said Paul Shaffer, executive vice president for business development with Landi Renzo USA. “We’re confident that with our Ford ship-thru strategy out of Kansas City, Landi Renzo will have the most cost-competitive solution in the market. We will be offering many options, including multiple CNG tank configurations and other essential equipment used in fleet operations for the popular truck.”
Landi Renzo will start taking orders for the MY2018 F-150 with CNG in May 2017. Additional Landi Renzo model-year 2018 products for CNG-equipped Ford trucks include F-250/350, F-450/550, F-650/750, F-53/59, and E-450.
Shaffer continued, “Landi Renzo is now offering fleets the best warranty in the business. Plus, as a leading Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier, the OEM warranty remains intact so fleets can rely on the most comprehensive warranty package in the industry.”
