The Rock Solid Transit Chassis Cab From Ford Co., UK

It is amazing to me the interesting, light yet heavy duty, flexible and efficient commercial trucks that are available as commonplace outside the United States. This is one of my favorites: The Ford Transit Chassis Cab which is available in a wide array of options. Oh, we're used to options in the US, but not like this. These are available in Front Wheel Drive, Rear Wheel Drive and All Wheel Drive. You get to choose. They come with a very fuel efficient 2.2 litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine on the Front Wheel Drive models and a 2.4 litre Duratorq TDCi diesel engine on the Rear Wheel Drive, along with an optional 3.2 litre Duratorq TDCi engine. The 2.2 and 2.4 litre engines are available in different torque and horsepower ratings. These are matched to a choice of 5 and 6-speed manual transmissions.

They are available in regular cab and crew cab, 3 different wheel bases plus a long wheel base with extended frame. Payload range is 1,444 kg (3,183 lbs) in the single rear wheel 300S to 2,693 kg (5,937 lbs) in the 460L.

Five standard bodies are available as well, called the Ford Transit One-Stop. You can order a 1-way Tipper (rear dump bed), a 3-way Tipper, a Drop-Side Flatbed, a CurtainSlider body, and a Box Van Body. How convenient.
Then, of course, there are creature comfort and other useful options to make the Transit fit each need and desire for use, drivability, and comfort.
