Extra Strength with 5-Tonne

The new 5-Tonne GVM (Gross Vehicle Mass) variant brings the greatest payload capacity ever to the Transit Chassis Cab, letting you efficiently carry a payload of up to 2,960 kg. 

This extra strength makes the 5-Tonne an ideal candidate for heavy conversions. And with all current Chassis Cab wheelbases available (L2, L3, L4, L5), it delivers the ultimate versatility for whatever you need.

Tougher than ever. This new, ultra-strong Transit is ready to work.

A solid base for conversions

Transit Chassis Cab’s strong, flat ladder-frame provides the ideal base for a wide range of body conversions to be fitted. The vehicle suspension creates higher centre of gravity suspension to cope with large bodywork. And the bolted closing member allows the chassis length to be customised without welding.

Three available platforms

Transit Chassis is available in three Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) variants, from 3,100 kg to 5,000 kg. The wheelbase and overhang dimensions are suitable for industry-standard or non-standard body sizes.

There’s a wheelbase to suit your needs. From the L2 (medium wheelbase) to the L5 (extra-long wheelbase), and the option for dual or single rear wheels on whichever you choose.Tooltip

Power Sockets

As well as two 12V power sockets, you can specify an optional 150 Watt/230V socket located between the driver’s and passengers’ seats: ideal for charging tools, laptops or other equipment without the need for special adaptors..

A long anti-perforation warranty for extra reassurance

As a measure of the vehicle’s build quality, the Transit Chassis Cab comes with a 12-year anti-perforation warranty as standard.

Long service intervals for less time off the road

The advanced all-new Ford EcoBlue 2.0-litre TDCi engines are durable and reliable, with longer service intervals of up to 36,000 miles, or two years, whichever occurs first. Along with this, components subject to normal wear and tear have also been designed to last longer without maintenance. It all helps ensure your Transit Chassis Cab won’t let you down.
