The Ford Transit commercial wheelchair conversion van raises the bar when it comes to ultimate versatility at an affordable price. Its peerless performance, improved fuel economy and large cabin interior that can accommodate up to 5 wheelchair passengers with a total seating capacity of up to 15 passengers makes it an ideal choice for hotels, shuttle operators, limousine and taxi services, para-transit agencies and other transportation firms that serve disabled passengers.
Inside the roomy cabin is a new second row seating option with more passenger leg room. The flex-flat ramp and high ceiling enables wheelchair users to safely enter and exit the vehicle with ease. The 800-pound ramp capacity enhances the van’s functionality and performance, while the rear lift-gate swings up and out of the way for easy entry. There is plenty of room for wheelchair passengers too with a secure locking system that keeps the wheelchair in place during the ride. The Ford Transit features a strong unibody construction that makes it more durable than other vehicles of the same class.
For ultimate versatility, the Ford Transit offers three different engines: A 3.5-liter direct inject eco-boost engine with an EPA estimated 16 mpg; the 3.7-liter Ti VCT engine that features revolutionary twin independent camshaft technology; and the 3.2-liter power stroke I-5 turbo diesel, which is ideal for transit operators that need the engine to continue running for hours on end without stopping. Also, the Ford Transit from FR Conversions meets all ADA and FMVSS requirements. It was successfully crash tested by an independent lab to ensure ultimate safety for passengers. An auto-retracting secure wheelchair system allows for speedier and more convenient passenger exits.
The van’s windows are also ergonomically designed and the telescoping steering wheel can be adjusted to meet the driver’s desired functionality and comfort. The Ford SYNC in-steering technology enables hands-free telecommunications and in-cabin entertainment access, while the 6-speed auto transmission comes with overdrive and SelectShift technology for impressive high-end efficiency and low-end acceleration. The FR Conversions Ford Transit wheelchair conversion van is backed by a 36-month/36,000-mile warranty.
With its outstanding performance, ultimate versatility and wheelchair friendly features, the Ford Transit is the perfect choice for shuttle operators and other contractors that want an affordable commercial conversion van for providing safe and reliable transportation for disabled passengers.
