North America’s Only Factory-Made CNG Truck
There is only one CNG-fueled pickup truck in North America that is completely factory-built by the auto manufacturer. That truck is the Ram 2500 HD CNG. The examiner.com’s James Nelson was one of the lucky few invited to drive the natural gas truck before its official release this month.
Nelson sums up the CNG Ram by saying, “As I expected, except for the presence of the fueling system and tanks in the bed, you would not know you are driving a CNG powered truck. It starts, sounds and performs just like you would expect of a gasoline powered Ram 2500. It accelerates just as quickly from dead stop and increases power evenly when needed to change lanes or adjust to driving conditions.”
The Ram 2500 HD CNG is powered by a 5.7 liter HEMI engine which can run on either compressed natural gas or regular gasoline. If both tanks are filled, the truck will use all natural gas available before switching to the gasoline tank.
