Switching to natural gas now can translate into significant fuel savings and money in your pocket tomorrow, so be sure to check with your local dealer to review available incentives.
Better for the environment, near-zero-emission Freightliner® natural-gas-powered trucks are among the cleanest trucks on the road, featuring Cummins Westport engines with greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reductions of up to 20% versus comparable diesel engines.

Factory-installed back-of-cab CNG (Type III aluminum-wrapped carbon fiber with 20-year lifespan), rail-mounted CNG (type IV carbon-fiber-wrapped plastic) and LNG (stainless steel) cylinder tanks meet or exceed all applicable safety standards.
