Ford Unveils All-New Transit Chassis Cab and Cutaway Models
By Kevin Davis on Monday, March 11th, 2013
Ford Motor Co. has launched the all-new Transit chassis cab and cutaway models.
Transit chassis cab features an enclosed passenger compartment and bare frame ready to accept aftermarket body modules ranging from custom cargo delivery to utility body. Transit cutaway is similar to the chassis cab, but with the rear of the passenger compartment open so it can be paired with specialty body modules such as shuttle or school bus bodies.
The chassis cab and cutaway will be offered in three wheelbases, 138, 156 or 178 inches, and gross vehicle weight ratings from 9,000 pounds to 10,360 pounds.
Transit offers a range of fuel-efficient engines, including a standard 3.7-liter V6, and an all-new 3.2-liter Power Stroke Diesel option.
Ford will offer the Transit 3.7-liter V6 with a compressed natural gas/liquid propane gas (CNG/LPG) prep kit. This 3.7-liter V6 is also engineered for optimal performance with E85 flex- fuel capability. Each fuel-conscious engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission for efficient rear-wheel-drive operation.
Ford Transit chassis cab and cutaway models will be built at the company’s assembly plant in Kansas City, Missouri.
