Tougher than ever

Ready to work whenever you are


Flat-beds, tippers, refrigerated vans, or almost anything else… There’s a reason the Transit Chassis Cab is the choice of vehicle for a van conversion.

The single row of the Transit Chassis Single Cab maximises the space available to carry goods.

From the L2 (medium wheelbase) to the L5 (extra-long wheelbase), every Transit Chassis Single Cab derivative is built with a robust ladder-frame chassis. And with a new 5-Tonne model available, you have a flat, strong base on which to build your perfect vehicle, however you like, with up to 2,960 kg of payload.

Tough, reliable and versatile. The Transit Chassis Single Cab is purpose-built to meet the unique demands of your business.

Key features


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 (L3, L4, L5), it delivers the ultimate versatility for whatever you need.

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


Icy winter roads, muddy access tracks – wherever your business takes you, All-Wheel Drive (AWD) gives you the confidence to go there. Intelligent All-Wheel Drive is a torque on demand system delivering surefooted progress over challenging surfaces. At the touch of a button or in response to driving conditions, AWD keeps you and your cargo squarely on the road. And for a weight gain of just -60kg, you get added versatility without sacrificing payload.


With a range of advanced hybrid or diesel powertrains, the Chassis Single Cab is the perfect blend of power and efficiency. The four 2.0-litre Ford EcoBlue diesel engines offer up to 170 PS of horsepower and 415 Nm of torque. For the first time, you can also choose a Ford EcoBlue Hybrid powertrain, helping maximise efficiency and minimise emissions. And to meet the stringent emissions regulations, the Transit Chassis Single Cab is also available with a 130 PS or 170 PS Heavy Duty diesel engine.


Set your own pace with Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control. The system can identify the prevailing speed limit and automatically maintain your selected speed within the limit detected. Advanced radar technology scans for slower traffic in front of you, and can automatically adjust your speed to maintain a pre-set gap from the vehicle ahead. When the traffic has cleared, your Transit Chassis Single Cab will resume its pre-selected speed.


Torque Vectoring Control reacts to the road surface 100 times per second. (That’s 33 times faster than the blink of an eye.) Using this information, it balances the amount of power delivered to each of the two front wheels of your Transit Chassis Single Cab. This maximises grip and sharpens handling, helping you round corners and over undulations in the road 


The Transit Chassis Single Cab helps the driver to stay in lane in strong, gusty conditions by using the Electronic Stability Control system. The system sense when the van is being affected by crosswinds and help to stabilise it.


The Ford Transit Chassis Cab is renowned for its versatility and flexibility. Available in five optional Gross Vehicle Mass (GVM) variants, it is the ideal platform for a wide range of bespoke conversions. The new 5-Tonne model increases maximum payload capacity to 2,960 kg, ideal for heavy conversions and making short work of any job.
