LAS VEGAS – Hammering home their success in offering a propane-powered truck, ROUSH Performance unveiled the next product in the lineup - the 2010 ROUSH Liquid Propane Injected F-250 at the 2009 International Builders’ Show.
The ROUSH propane-powered F-250 immediately received considerable interest among the attendees who had been looking for a medium-duty truck that could offer both lower operating costs and reduced greenhouse gas emissions.
According to research provided by the Propane Education and Research Council (PERC), propane is the most widely-used alternative fuel today, with more than 10 million vehicles around the world using it as a fuel.
Operating costs typically range from 5- to 30-percent less than those of a gasoline-powered fleet, and on average create 20-percent less nitrous oxide (NOx), up to 60-percent less carbon monoxide, and fewer particulate emissions.
With deliveries anticipated to start in the third quarter, ROUSH will make this product available in two forms; customers can choose either a complete ROUSH-assembled vehicle which will have a 3-year/36,000 mile warranty, or a conversion kit to fit existing trucks in the field which also carries the same warranty. The conversion kit will also fit 2009 F-250 pickups that may be in service.
