Hebert's Town and Country dealer manager Beau Hebert is now stocking Dodge Ram trucks with a factory-made CNG fueling option.
A Shreveport car dealership is now stocking a Dodge Ram Hemi crew-cab truck that runs on compressed natural gas or CNG. It’s the first truck in the United States that comes with a factory-made CNG option, an $11,000 add-on.
