Venchurs Vehicle Systems (VVS), a Missouri-based company that is authorised to carry out CNG conversions for Ford Motor Company, has introduced a ship-thru option for 2014 Ford F-150s. Ford’s recent introduction of the gaseous prep engine for the 3.7L F-150 enables VVS to offer CNG conversions for the light truck model. Venchurs will give customers the flexibility to choose from three gasoline gallon equivalent (GGE) options: 12.8GGE, 17.8GGE, or 23.5GGE.
Venchurs’ strategic relationship with Ford as a Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) dedicated and bi-fuel conversions retain the full Ford warranty and can be financed through Ford Credit.
“We are the first QVM to have ship-thru available for the F-150, which makes ordering easier and less expensive for our dealers and customers,” says Jeff Wyatt, CEO of Venchurs.
With ship-thru installation, Venchurs receives the vehicles directly from the Ford assembly plants. After CNG conversion the truck re-enters the Ford system for direct delivery to dealerships. Venchurs also offers a drop ship option, meaning rather than re-entering the Ford system, the converted truck can be sent directly to the customer.
Venchurs also offers CNG conversions for the F-250, F-350, and Transit Connect.
