Sterling has a press release announcing their new Natural Gas-Powered truck. It is powered by a Cummins Westport ISL G that is LNG or CNG capable. I’m only seeing horsepower ratings to 320 but they have a statement on their site that says the Westport LNG system is available with 400 and 450 horsepower ratings and up to 1,750 lb-ft torque.

    The ISL-G is available in power ratings up 320 HP. The Westport 15 Liter GX has ratings of 400-450HP. It uses concentric injectors to spray diesel (Pilot fuel) and natural gas. Diesel substitution rates are up to 95:1. The engine uses diesel to ignite the natural gas, no spark plugs are needed.
