In the light-duty category, there are a growing number of CNG vehicles offered by the auto manufacturers through their dealers and fleet sales network. A list of these is as follows:
- Dodge Ram 2500 HD pickup truck
- Chevy Silverado/GMC Sierra 2500 pickup truck
- Chevy Express/GMC Savana van
- Chevy Impala
In addition, there is a long list of late model vehicles, for which there is an EPA-approved after-market conversion system available. This includes many Ford vehicles available with the optional “gaseous engine prep” package (specially hardened engine components) making them eligible for conversion to CNG by Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifiers (QVMs.) To obtain information about aftermarket conversions and new or used vehicles that can be modified to operate on natural gas, visit NGV America.
