Westport Fuel Systems has gained Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certification for its Westport WiNG™ Power System on multiple 2017 Model Year (MY) Ford products. Earlier this year, Westport WiNG™ Power System certifications were issued by California Air Resources Board (CARB) for the Ford Transit Cargo Van and Passenger Wagon, and the F-150 truck for Model Year (MY) 2016, and by EPA for Westport Ford 5.0L F-150 trucks for Model Year (MY) 2016.
As a leading developer and installer in Ford’s Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) program, Westport has the largest line-up of Ford alternative fueled vehicles, offering fleets a diverse choice of fuel from a single provider.
Westport has also streamlined the supply chain through a Ford-approved Ship-Thru process on the F-150, F-250/350 and Transit products, reducing transportation costs and simplifying the ordering process. Once the Westport WiNG™ Power System is installed, calibrated, and validated, the alternative fuel vehicles are returned to the Ford transportation system and delivered to the customer without disruption to warranty.
“As one of the most experienced and trusted names in alternative fuel systems, our EPA certified expanded product line meets all Ford OEM safety requirements, quality engineering and design,” said Paul Shaffer, Vice President & Managing Director of Westport DOEM North America. “Ford backed warranty, financing and ship-thru ordering, combined with a nationwide network of trained technicians, provides fleets with a seamless ordering experience and more fuel choices from a single full service provider.”

- F-150 5.0L CNG (and LPG)
- Transit 3.7L CNG
- F-450/550/650/750/53/59 6.8L CNG
