Model year 2016 marks the first time that Ford began offering the F-650 and F-750 with a gaseous prep package. Ford has designated Landi Renzo as a Qualified Vehicle Modifier.

Delivery fleet companies, such as UPS and FedEx, use Ford’s stripped chassis models. Once these vehicles are equipped for the road, they’re commonly called step-vans or walk-in vans.

An autogas conversion is also available from Landi for Ford’s stripped chassis.
