Ford Unveils New Transit Chassis Cab, Cutaway

Ford Unveils New Transit Chassis Cab, Cutaway

Mar 5, 2013 7:53 AM

Ford Motor Company today introduced the all-new Transit chassis cab and cutaway models, engineered to tackle an almost unlimited variety of specialized jobs and vocations.

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.

While there are still no hard dates... :: Ford Press Kit ::

...it is interesting that Ford is already posturing to introduce more than the basic van during the first year.

This - of course - will not be a full sized U.S. style van like we are used to (Read E-150 thru E-350 and Chevy 1500 thru 3500 sized van). It's a bit more narrow - or "Sprinter" like.

Well this will replace the econoline vans so I would expect to see them made available in all the same platforms. It will be interesting to see how RV manufactures deal with the taller stance. Wonder if they will keep the over cab bunk.
