Driving The New Ram 2500 CNG Pickup

At the World Truck Show in Indianapolis this week, an Engineering News-Record writer test drives a new Chrysler Ram 2500 Heavy Duty CNG pickup.
The truck starts on gasoline but switches to CNG after the engine warms up a bit.  This is the first U.S. made factory-direct (not converted) pickup and has a little less horsepower as well as lower payload and towing capacities than its all-gas brother.  Since this is the first of its kind for Chrysler, the Ram model has a ways to go, but for those who value the cost savings and cleaner burning fuel, the future is here today.
