The Ford Transit Chassis Cab combines the strength of a heavy truck with the agility of a light commercial vehicle. An ultra-tough ladder-frame is available in five different lengths, single/double cab and front, rear, or all-wheel drive. A comprehensive range of Special Vehicle Options (SVO) are available such as Ford One-Stop 1 or 3-way Tipper, Dropside, CurtainSlider, Luton and Box Van.
EXTERIOR & INTERIOR
The tough and durable chassis provides an excellent foundation for most specialised bodies. The streamlined shape helps to cut through the air more efficiently to maximise fuel efficiency and high-tech lights provide better visibility.
The Chassis Cab’s interior is as practical and hard-wearing as it is eye-catching and comfortable. The dual front passenger seat and standard rear quad seat offer accommodation for up to seven occupants, with plenty of under seat stowage possibilities. The refined instrument panel is optimised for easy operation on the move, even for those wearing gloves.
Load retention rings pull-up when you need them and sit flush with the load platform when you don’t. Fold out side steps make access to the load bed easy.
An all-steel powder-coated headboard protects the cab and the occupants. Its strong construction also makes it an ideal place to secure ladders and other heavy items.
SAFETY & SECURITY
Available standard or optional safety and security features available in the Transit Chassis Cabs include, but are not limited to:
Load Adaptive Control (LAC): LAC senses the weight being carried in the vehicle and adjusts braking inputs via the ESC system to maximise driver control; Trailer Sway Control: when it detects trailer sway, the system will reduce engine torque and apply the brakes to the appropriate wheel(s) to help maintain control; Electronic Stability Control (ESC): ESC monitors your vehicle’s progress, senses any deviations from your chosen driving line and automatically corrects your road position; Hill Start Assist: a system that temporarily stops you rolling backwards when making a hill start. It works by maintaining pressure to the braking system for an extra 2.5 seconds, giving you more time and control as you move your foot from brake pedal to accelerator.
