Across hundreds of businesses and industries, you’ll find the Ford Transit hard at work carrying people and cargo. With three roof height and three body length options, the Ford Transit can be configured and adapted to meet the needs of any business. Nowhere is this more true than in the non-emergency medical transportation (NEMT) sector. As a certified member of Ford’s Qualified Vehicle Modifier (QVM) program, Sunset Vans is proud to offer custom wheelchair, gurney/stretcher, passenger, and fleet conversions.

The Ford Transit boasts between 100.5 cubic feet to 425.4 cubic feet of cargo space depending on configuration, and can easily store wheelchairs, gurneys and stretchers, as well as passengers. Its robust hauling power comes from a choice of either a 3.5L PFDI V6 (275 horsepower, 260 lb.ft. of torque) or twin-turbo 3.5L EcoBoost V6 (310 hp, 400 lb.ft. of torque). The Ford Transit also comes with a host of modern safety technologies; standard driver-assist features include Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Warning, Post-Collision Braking, Lane-Keeping System and auto high-beam headlamps.
The Ford Transit comes loaded with value and makes an excellent addition to any commercial fleet. Fleet owners can take advantage of Ford’s rebates and fleet incentives. Business operations that receive government funding are eligible for discounted vehicle pricing as a Government Price Concession (GPC). With optional Ford Telematics, fleet owners can monitor vehicles to track route and use patterns as well as performance metrics.

The all-electric Ford Transit provides cost savings in every facet of vehicle ownership.
