“Operating up to 33,000 GVWR, the model was created in response to the growing demand for an autogas-fueled medium-duty chassis for bobtail applications, cylinder delivery trucks, and larger tank setters and box trucks,” states a release.

“Ford places great value on being a leader in the truck market by building reliable vehicles that consistently outperform competitors,” Roush CleanTech sales and marketing VP Todd Mouw says in the F-750 announcement.

“Now fleet managers can purchase an F-750 that not only costs less initially, but also saves money at the pump and uses a clean-operating, American-made fuel.”

The Ford F-750 base model comes with a 50-usable-gallon fuel tank, located on the driver side for ease of fueling. An extended tank option is available for those in need of more mileage. The truck has Ford’s 6.8-liter V-10 engine.

Roush CleanTech showed its first propane bobtail truck based on the Ford F-750 NPGA Southeastern Convention & International Propane Expo in Nashville.

An early taker is Victory Propane, a propane supplier in Michigan, Roush says. “Victory Propane already has 25 Ford F-650s equipped with the Roush CleanTech fuel system,” company president Gregg Falberg says in the Roush release.

“We will increase our autogas fleet with Roush’s first two Ford F-750s, and 13 more have been ordered,” he said.
