    The converter's choice

    Ford Transit has established itself as one of the top choices for specialist bodybuilders and converters.

    All the traditional virtues and strengths of the Transit range, including the latest technology, durability and the support of Ford Transit24, our dedicated aftersales programme, are the starting point for tailored solutions that support the varying requirements of the conversion industry.

    And with two new derivatives joining the chassis cab range – the Skeletal Chassis and Stripped Chassis models – converters now have even more reasons to choose the proven foundation of Ford Transit.

  • Ford Transit Chassis Cab

    Skeletal Chassis and Stripped Chassis

    ■ Strong, lightweight ladder frame chassis

    ■ Reduced chassis rail height – 102 mm lower than a standard FWD Chassis Cab

    ■ Industry-first FWD low floor 3.5 tonne automatic

    ■ Approximately 200 kg* payload advantage over standard FWD Chassis Cab

    ■ Two rear axle widths: 1,759 mm (standard on L2 and L3); 1,980 mm (standard on L4, option on L2 and L3)

    Chassis that's fit for the job

    Transit Chassis Cab combines the strength of a heavy truck with the agility of a light commercial vehicle. Each hard-working derivative, from the L1 (short wheelbase) to the L5 (extra-long wheelbase), has a robust ladder-frame chassis that provides a flat, strong base on which to build.

    A choice of driveline configurations, cab styles and single or dual rear wheel axles add to its flexibility.

    From a box van, dropside or tipper, to a refrigerated body, mobile workshop, emergency services vehicle or camper, Ford offers a Transit Chassis Cab that’s fit for the job.

    Transit Chassis Cab

    With five frame lengths, including the L5 extra-long wheelbase, a range of GVMs from 3,100 kg to 4,700 kg, a choice of front-, rear- or all-wheel drive* powertrains and single or double cab styles, the Ford Transit Chassis Cab can be relied upon when there’s serious work to be done. *All-wheel drive is available as an option on 330 L1 and 350 L2, L3, L4 and L5 series. FWD RWD AWD Chassis Double Cab Chassis Cab

    ■ Flat, strong ladder-frame is ideal for a wide range of conversions

    ■ 350HD (Heavy Duty) version available for operators requiring greater trailer plate loading flexibility from a 3,500 kg GVM/7,000 kg GTM vehicle

    ■ Suitable for industry-standard or non-standard body sizes

    ■ Integral body mounting points and bolt-on rear frame overhangs, where required

    ■ Higher centre of gravity suspension as standard, to cope with large bodywork

    Transit Stripped Chassis

    Transit Stripped Chassis models are based on the Skeletal Chassis, but without the vehicle cab. The subsequent conversion includes a custom designed body and the bodybuilder’s own cab. Within the motorhome sector, this type of vehicle is referred to as a fully-integrated conversion. FWD

    ■ Ideal donor for lightweight full body conversions

    ■ Low floor for easy entry into converted body

    ■ Easy walk-through from cab to conversion

    ■ Improved fuel economy versus RWD competitors

    ■ Improved cost of ownership

  • Ford Transit Chassis Cab

    Skeletal Chassis

    Skeletal Chassis models are ideal for those conversions requiring a low floor and walk-through access from the cab. The vehicle is supplied without a cabin back panel and incorporates interface points on the B-pillars to facilitate correct fixing of the conversion. Once converted, the new body contributes to the overall rigidity of the complete vehicle. FWD

    ■ Van-based chassis is lighter than a Chassis Cab

    ■ Low floor for easy entry into converted body

    ■ Unrestricted walk-through from cab to conversion

    ■ Dedicated fixing points on the B-pillars ensure integrity of the conversion and contribute to the rigidity of the complete vehicle

    ■ Improved fuel economy versus RWD competitors

    ■ Improved cost of ownership

    ■ Available in Base, Trend and Camper series

    Adaptive features

    Lane-Keeping AlertØ*2) It only takes a momentary slip in concentration to drift out of your lane when driving on the highway. Lane- Keeping Alert is designed to recognise when you approach the road markings without using the indicator, and alerts you with vibrations through the steering wheel. (Standard on Chassis Cab, optional on Skeletal Chassis. Not available on Stripped Chassis)

    Side Wind StabilisationØ1) Helps the driver to stay in lane in strong, gusty conditions by using the Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system to sense when the vehicle is being affected by crosswinds. (Standard) Curve ControlØ1) Senses when a driver takes a curve too quickly, and can rapidly reduce engine torque – and apply brakes to individual wheels – to help keep the vehicle under control. (Standard)

    Ford EcoBlue TDCi engines

    Transit Chassis Cab’s all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0L TDCi engines combine outstanding performance and power with lower fuel consumption and emissions. To lower running costs further, service intervals are now up to 36,000 miles or 2 years, whichever occurs first. Available in three power outputs of 105 PS/ 360 Nm, 130 PS / 385 Nm and 170PS / 405 Nm, there’s an option to suit your needs.

    The advanced all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0L TDCi diesel engines comply with the stringent Euro 6 emissions standard, which specifies a 55% reduction in nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions versus the Euro 5 emissions standard.

    A selective catalytic reduction system uses AdBlue®, a urea/water-based fluid to convert NOx emissions in the exhaust gas into nitrogen and water. A particulate filter then reduces more than 99% of emitted solid particulates from the vehicle’s exhaust. To operate correctly, the AdBlue® tank of your Ford EcoBlue diesel engine must be filled with AdBlue® fluid. System warnings illuminate when fluid level becomes too low.

About the Ford Transit Chassis Cab

  • New Transit helps you take even the most demanding day in your stride. The spacious, redesigned interior with its new instrument panel and high-quality ergonomic design puts you comfortably in control.

    A new 8" touchscreen at the heart of the facia supports pinch and swipe gestures and delivers a range of information, entertainment and navigation, as well as voice control (option).

    A choice of standard dual front passenger seat or fully-adjustable single seat offers room for up to three occupants, while the facia-mounted gearshift provides easy cross-cab access.

    And, because life at the wheel runs more smoothly – and looks much better – when you have room to store everything you need, you'll find plenty of easily accessible stowage space too, including three open-topped bins on the top of the dashboard and a new device dock designed to hold a mobile phone or tablet.

  • With Gross Vehicle weights (GVW) of 3,500 kgs or 4,700 kgs, there is a choice of four chassis lengths in either dual or single rear wheels.

    The shorter L2 and L3 wheelbases carry the option of front, rear or all-wheel drive while the longer L4 carries a choice of front or rear at 3,500kgs classification and rear only at 4700kgs.

    The L5 version is available as rear wheel drive only. The Double Cab option is available at either all-wheel drive in the L3 3,500 kgs version and rear wheel drive only in the other longer wheelbase versions.
