The Transit Chassis Cab is designed to deliver maximum utility. It also incorporates features and technologies specifically designed to help you. As soon as you’ve experienced them, you’ll wonder how you ever did without them.
Fully adjustable driver’s seat
An ergonomically designed driver’s seat includes a built-in armrest and is 8-way adjustable. So it’s easy to find your ideal driving position, or change it for different drivers. The steering wheel also adjusts to suit your height and arm length. (Standard)
Clever underseat stowage
Flip up the front, dual passenger seat cushions and you’ll find a hidden compartment big enough for a toolbox. The centre seat also incorporates a fold-down table, large enough to hold an A4 clipboard, a tablet or laptop. (Standard)
For control and ease of use, just press a button to open or close the windows, or set them in a position you choose. (Standard)
Smart stowage for a clutter-free cab
A handy stowage shelf above the driver and passenger makes effective use of an otherwise unused space, so you can keep your cabin tidy and still keep items within easy reach. There’s also a lidded compartment incorporating 12-Volt power, USB and AUX sockets plus a generous open storage compartment along with cup and 2-litre bottle holders.
As well as two 12V power sockets, there’s a 150 Watt 230Vsocket located between the driver’s and passengers’ seats: ideal for charging tools, laptops or other equipment without the need for special adaptors. (150 Watt Option on Base)
Lamps that turn when you do, for better night time visibility
If you’re indicating and turning into a road, or pulling into a parking space, this feature can help make it safer. That’s because a light within the headlamp, on the turning side, automatically illuminates the side of the road to give you enhanced visibility through the turn. You will certainly appreciate the benefits of this technology. (Option on Base)
Ford Easy-Fuel, for foolproof filling-up
This makes it almost impossible to put the wrong fuel in your vehicle because the wrong nozzle simply won’t fit. In addition, Ford Easy-Fuel is a capless system, you will never have to handle a dirty fuel cap again.
Interior materials have been specially chosen to minimise the risk of an allergic reaction. Models fitted with air conditioning also have a high-performance pollen filter to prevent dust and pollen entering the cab.
A range of 2.2 litre TDCi diesel engines, with 6-speed transmissions, deliver high levels of power and torque along with exceptional fuel efficiency to keep your running costs low.
Transit Chassis Cab is powered by a range of three, advanced 2.2-litre Duratorq engines. Via a 6-speed, front wheel drive transmission these deliver a choice of 100, 125 or 155PS and up to 385Nm of torque for maximum pulling power and fewer gear changes. The ingenious engineering delivers outstanding fuel-economy, low emissions and swift, efficient warm-up even in the coldest conditions.
A light on the instrument panel tells you when to change gear for maximum fuel efficiency. It’s a simple but effective way to help make every journey more economical.
Acceleration Control can deliver improvements of between 4 – 15% in fuel consumption in real world conditions by automatically preventing aggressive acceleration. The system detects when the vehicle is empty or partially loaded, and automatically limits acceleration to help improve fuel economy. Potential advantages include reduced engine wear, longer brake pad life and reduced fuel consumption (Option)
A car inspired exterior combines bold styling with practical purpose: proving you can have a tough, commercial vehicle that also looks good. The cab’s streamlined shape helps it cut through the air more efficiently when you’re cruising which can help maximise fuel efficiency. High-tech lights give better visibility and superb detailing is matched by a focus on everyday use.
Looking for maximum versatility, the robust and rigid chassis provides an excellent foundation for fitting most specialist bodies. For the conveninence of operators who want a quick and simple solution, our factory-built Transit ‘One-Stop’ bodies Chassis Cab range is supplied fully-equipped and ready to go.
Light, bright and easy to drive, Transit Chassis Cab sets new standards for vehicles in its class. With exceptional levels of finish and refinement, along with smart driver-orientated technology – it is as practical and durable as it is attractive and comfortable. The best equipped office on the road.
Curvature Control is designed to help you maintain control of your vehicle if it enters a curve and is travelling too quickly. If the system detects understeer and senses the vehicle may be losing control, it first reduces engine torque then applies braking to help slow you down. This unique technology is particularly effective (and most reassuring) on banked curves with a camber, such as motorway turn-off ramps. (Standard)
Emergency Brake Assist (EBA) helps your vehicle achieve maximum braking effectiveness in an emergency situation. The system senses how much pressure you haveapplied to the brake and automatically increases it, if necessary.(Standard)
Roll Stability Control (RSC) is designed to help prevent the likelihood of your vehicle rolling over. The system can detect if your Transit Chassis Cab is starting to become unstable and by controlling both the engine torque and individual wheel braking, the technology can help correct oversteer, effectively stabilising the situation.(Standard)
An advanced Traction Control System (TCS) eliminates excessive wheelspin and gives you the best possible grip, performance and stability, just when you need it most. The system constantly monitors and adjusts the power delivered to the vehicle’s individual wheels ensuring maximum contact and grip when you’re accelerating.(Standard)
Trailer Sway Control (TSC) detects ‘snaking’ or trailer sway and reduces your speed to help solve the problem, making towing more controlled. The system slows the vehicle down by reducing the engine’s torque and gradually increasing the brake pressure on all wheels. Activated with Ford trailer tow attachments (Optional)
[Enhanced airbag system - Standard driver and optional passenger airbag only on campers]
A range of airbags is fitted either as standard or as available options. These include driver and passenger airbags. Advanced sensors are also positioned at key points in the vehicle to ensure a swift and controlled response.
Load Adaptive Control (LAC) adjusts the Electronic Stability Control according to the overall weight your vehicle is carrying. This is a particular advantage in a Transit Chassis Cab because it ensures control and stability whether your vehicle is empty or fully loaded.
Ford Transit is renowned for its versatility and flexibility, and is the ideal platform for a wide range of special applications and bespoke conversions. What’s more, for the convenience of those operators who want a quick and simple, work-ready solution, Ford offers the Transit “One-Stop Shop” range of bodied Chassis Cabs.
