The Chassis Cab iteration of the redoubtable Ford Transit is a sophisticatedly simple commercial vehicle that transports industrial items with ease. Available in five lengths and single- and double-cab body styles, this versatile automotive workhorse makes hard labour that much easier.
The driver is provided with a four-way-adjustable seat and tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, enabling him or her to establish their ideal position. The vehicle typically conveys three occupants. However, when a job requires a larger crew of people, the Double Cab variant is just the ticket, making room for three in the front and four in the back. The Chassis Cab’s floor is covered with an easy-to clean rubber surface and, for added convenience, electrically powered front windows are featured. Useful cubby spaces include overhead stowage and an under-seat compartment.
The Ford Chassis Cab offers an array of business applications, including three-way tipper functionality, five Dropside lengths and several Luton and Box Van sizes and heights. It is also available with a choice of either single rear wheels or dual rear wheels should you need to further increase payload. A number of useful features are included as standard, such as Ford’s Easy Fuel capless system. This ensures that the tank can never be filled with the incorrect fuel. Also included are large blind-spot-eliminating door mirrors, complete with integrated indicators.
The Transit Chassis Cab is available in both front wheel drive (FWD) and rear wheel drive (RWD). Each model is installed with a 2.0-litre diesel engine, attached to a six-speed manual gearbox. Three power outputs are available: 105bhp, 130bhp or 170bhp, producing a peak torque of 360Nm, 385Nm, and 405Nm respectively. Whichever option is selected, it returns as much as 39.8mpg and CO2 emissions as low as 184g/km. The Chassis Cab’s gross vehicle mass ranges from 3,100kg (Single Cab L1) to 4,700kg (Double Cab L3).
Audio entertainment is provided by an included AM/FM radio which can be easily operated via steering wheel-mounted controls. Bluetooth, USB and iPod connectivity are featured too, enabling the charging and/or playing of compatible media devices.
A range of driver aids are included as standard, such as Electronic Stability Control, Hill Stability Control, Roll Stability Control and Curve Control (CC). If there is an appreciable difference between the vehicle’s intended course and its actual direction, CC will automatically apply braking pressure to individual wheels, and simultaneously reduce torque.
