Company Will Perform Upfits on F-550, -650, -750 and B-59
Santa Ana, Calif.-based Greenkraft reports U.S. EPA and California certification of its natural gas version of Ford’s 6.8-liter V-10 engine.
Greenkraft will use the three-valve engine for compressed natural gas upfits of Ford F-550, F-650 and F-750 trucks and B-59 strip chassis vehicles, says sales director Frank Ziegler.
The company has more Ford engine certifications pending, bolstering a line-up that already includes 4.8- and 6.0-liter GM engines.
