ROUSH adds 3 Ford chassis options

Posted on February 21, 2013

ROUSH CleanTech expands alternative fuel technology product offerings with new propane autogas fuel systems for Ford F-59, F-53 and E-450 stripped chassis. As the first Ford Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) to offer fuel systems for these platforms, ROUSH CleanTech fills the growing market demand in a variety of industries for a less expensive, clean-burning, domestic alternative fuel option.

The Ford F-59 commercial step van chassis and the Ford E-450 stripped chassis adapt to numerous fleet delivery applications, such as bakery, textile, multi-stop package delivery service, linen and medical services. The Ford F-53 platform offers a flexible commercial platform for trolleys, lunch trucks and more. The size and cargo capabilities of all three platforms are customizable for specific business vehicle applications.

Built on a 2013 model year or newer chassis with a 6.8-liter, V10 engine, the ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas-powered Ford F-53 and F-59 feature a 67-usable gallon propane autogas fuel tank. The ROUSH CleanTech propane autogas-powered Ford E-450 stripped chassis comes equipped with a 41-usable gallon propane autogas fuel tank.

Each of the three ROUSH CleanTech fuel systems fulfill certification requirements in all 50 states by the California Air Resources Board and Environmental Protection Agency and achieve the same torque, towing and horsepower as conventionally fueled models.

An early adopter of the propane autogas fueled F-59 stripped chassis includes the City of Laguna Beach, Calif., for city trolleys.

All three platforms are available for immediate order through ROUSH CleanTech, and the vehicles’ production and delivery begins in May.
