Ford Super Chief

The Ford Super Chief Tri-Fuel vehicle rates high on the coolness factor for high-tech design, engineering and forward thinking. The Ford Super Chief is a tri-fuel vehicle that can run on unleaded gasoline, E85 (ethanol) or compressed hydrogen.

 
 

With the Super Chief, it looks like Ford has figured out the progression from gasoline-powered vehicles to the ultimate clean energy vehicle. Economists and engineers predict that ethanol makes sense as a great stepping stone towards the cutover to hydrogen cars. Ford has solved this problem along with the problem of where to buy alternative fuels as they continue to rollout nationwide.

The Ford Super Chief uses a nostalgic body design reminiscent of the Sante Fe and Topeka railway trains from the 1930's. The Super Chief is actually based upon the body of an F-250 but modified by Ford's own top automotive designer, Peter Horbury. An art-deco interior with genuine leather and dovetailed wood panels makes this tough truck an experiment is design as well as technology.

The Ford Super Chief has a supercharged v-10 engine that can jump between fuel sources at the flip of a switch and go 500 miles when using all onboard fuels. The hydrogen option commands 400 lb.-ft. of torque and expels 99-percent fewer CO2 emissions than the gasoline-only option.

Choosing to forgo the hydrogen fuel cell as it is using in its Focus FCV, Ford has created an automotive powerhouse with locomotive design to herald in the new future of hydrogen technology.
