Landi Renzo Updates


We’re heading into the home stretch for Model Year (MY) 2019 and Landi Renzo would like to offer some updates. This is one of those critical years. All of the products listed below, with the exception of the F-150, will undergo changes that require a new certification for next MY.

If you are planning on deploying any of these vehicles in the near future, it would be wise to have a discussion with us, so there are no surprises as you plan your fleet updates.

It’s also a good time to remind you that as a Ford QVM System Developer, ALL Landi Renzo products are part of Ford’s OEM program. You can reference this information on their 2019 FORD ADVANCED FUEL BUYER’S GUIDE (Page 6).

According to the Ford Advanced Fuel Buyer’s Guide, Ford states, “Ford recognizes seven QVM Developers”. These Developers are listed as:

  • Altech Eco
  • Landi Renzo
  • Roush CleanTech
  • Westport
  • Motiv
  • XL
  • Lightning Systems

Additional, the Ford Buyer’s Guide states, “These companies develop and provide the engine calibration systems, dynamometer testing, compliance with federal safety standards, and adherence to Ford engineering specifications required for successful vehicle operation with advanced fuels. They also hold the emissions certifications (either EPA or CARB) required for air quality assurance. The QVM/eQVM Developers ensure that your product is delivered to your dealership ready to operate.”

We’re working closer with Ford than every before. Truly some historic efforts!

What’s the important take-away? Before you make a hefty investment in alternative fuels, first and foremost, make sure you are working with one of the companies listed above. They are the ONLY ones Ford recognizes, regardless of what you may be told or are being promised. There are horror stories about non-approved calibrations/products that just don’t offer the reliability and durability that your fleet needs.

Coming up in the future…information about the Next Generation of CNG vehicles we will be launching for the upcoming MY. It is truly an OE-level product and we look forward to sharing more at the appropriate time.
