Why do we recommend a Ford Transit for electricians? Customization is a big factor, but not the only one, by any means. Keep reading to see why a used or new Ford Transit from Gator Ford might be just the ticket for busy electricians on the go.
The Ford Transit is usually a cargo van but is often sold as a cutaway, minibus, or even as a pickup truck. The cargo van, under the skilled hands of local upfitters, can transform into an electrician's dream. You can get one of three roof heights (low, medium, or high)-imagine standing in the back of your work vehicle!-and two different lengths are just the beginning. You can get your Transit with one or two sliding side doors, or none at all. Yours can come with an extendable ramp. Mix it up, make it yours. Upfitters allied with Gator Ford can make it happen.
Any one of three engine options, including a very powerful diesel, can be found in the Ford Transit. The base engine is a 3.7-liter V6 dishing up 375 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Next up is the 310-horsepower Ecoboost engine good for 400 lb-ft of torque. Finally, there's the 3.2-liter turbo diesel engine generating 350 pound-feet of torque. As you can see, the customization just doesn't stop. Oh, and that base engine? Yeah, it has the option to run on natural gas or propane instead of regular gasoline. One more way you get a say.
All that power is put to good use, pushing the capability of the cargo van to great heights. The Ford Transit, can haul up to 4,640 pounds in the back. And, when properly configured, this van can tow up to 7,500 pounds as well. When you have a big job and want to take only one van, grab the keys to this one.
There are other vehicles at Gator Ford that might fit the bill for your electrician business. A couple of trucks with tonneau covers over the back and built-in toolboxes, for example. Or a cutaway chassis E-series van that allows for even more customization with Gator's expert upfitter partners. Whatever you want, Gator's got it.
