Chassis Cab Added to Ford Ranger Line-Up
Added: 27 November 2020
For the first time ever, Ford is introducing a new Ranger chassis cab variant, allowing you to easily create bespoke vehicles based on Europe’s best-selling pick-up.
The Ranger chassis cab uses a body-on-frame construction, creating a tough donor vehicle that maximises the range of potential conversion options.
Available in single-cab body style and XL series, it will be the newest addition to the Ranger line-up. Customers will also benefit from Ford’s network of more than 160 Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) converters in 13 markets to expertly deliver warranty-approved bespoke vehicles for specialist applications.
“We’ve built the Ranger chassis cab for customers who work in the most demanding environments and need a tough, off-road vehicle to carry their specialist kit,” said Paul Baynes, conversions manager, Commercial Vehicles, Ford of Europe. “Combined with Ford’s extensive QVM converter network, Ranger chassis cab enables our customers to get the job done, wherever they work.”

Robust, durable and proven, Ranger’s chassis features heavy-duty rear leaf spring suspension and a flat rear surface for converters to build upon – providing a versatile base for conversions up to a generous 3,270kg gross vehicle mass.
The single cab design permits a maximum conversion length behind the cab of 2,518mm. Challenging terrain will pose little issue for Ranger chassis cab conversions, with a wading depth of up to 800mm, 237mm of ground clearance before conversion, and a short front overhang for optimised approach angles.
Ranger chassis cab also provides 3,500kg maximum towing capacity, allowing you to haul extra equipment with ease.
Ford’s European network of QVM converters offers the expertise businesses require to produce safe, Ford-certified, bespoke vehicles. The chassis has been optimised to have potential for a wide range of conversions such as box bodies, tippers and cherry pickers. Plus, there’s no need to worry as all QVM conversions come with a warranty that matches those offered on Ford’s standard vehicles.
If you’d like to further enhance your vehicle, you can with the Ford Special Vehicle Options’ range of flexible solutions. Choose from things like a trailer tow electrical connector, high-performance batteries for increased electrical loads and an interface to link conversions and vehicle signals.
Ranger chassis cab’s 170PS 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel engine delivers 420Nm of torque to easily haul heavy loads, supported by a slick-shifting six-speed manual gearbox.
A selectable four-wheel drive system 1 is standard, with a simple control in the centre console enabling drivers to select rear-wheel drive or four-wheel drive while on the move to best suit changing conditions. A low range four-wheel drive setting improves performance on steep hills and soft surfaces.
