Venchurs Vehicle Systems, a qualified vehicle modifier (QVM) of CNG conversions for Ford Motor Company, announced its new ship-thru option for 2014 Ford F-150s. The announcement comes on the heels of Ford’s introduction of the gaseous prep engine for the 3.7L F-150, enabling Venchurs to offer CNG bi-fuel conversions for the light-truck model, which allows customers to retain the full Ford warranty and finance them 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,” said Jeff Wyatt, CEO of Venchurs.
With ship-thru installation, Venchurs receives the vehicles directly from the Ford assembly plants. Venchurs then completes the CNG conversion and the truck re-enters the Ford system for direct delivery to dealerships, according to Venchurs, who also offer a drop ship option, meaning rather than re-entering the Ford system, the converted truck can be sent directly to the customer.
In addition to the 2014 F-150, Venchurs also offers CNG conversions for the F-250, F-350, and Transit Connect. Companies that are interested in adding CNG vehicles to their fleets are invited to apply for Venchurs’ short term loaner program, where they can put the converted vehicles to the test.
