Chrysler announced that the first 2013 Ram 2500 compressed natural gas (CNG) pickup trucks have begun coming off the assembly line at the company’s Saltillo, Mexico, assembly plant.
The 2013 Ram 2500 CNG is a bi-fuel pickup truck that uses natural gas as its primary fuel. The truck automatically switches to gasoline when the CNG tanks are empty. The new 2013 Ram CNG will transition to gasoline with no noticeable difference in operation or capabilities when it changes fuel source. Chrysler plans to sell the vehicle to both fleet and retail customers, and is already receiving strong demand from dealers.
