No job too tough

With its massive payload, configurability and powerful engine, the Transporter Cab Chassis is built for your business.

Length and payload

In a class of its own

Up to 5,300mm in length, the Transporter is the only vehicle in its class to offer a chassis with a payload of up to 1,415kg1 for a variety of different bodies.

Dropside tray

Do more when you carry more

More heavy machinery, more equipment, more manpower. Transporter models are available with an optional dropside tray – direct from the factory. With a robust load surface, aluminium tray, rear step and retaining cables, it makes the Transporter Cab Chassis perfect for any number of tough jobs.


Undoubtedly powerful

The engines in the Transporter provide impressive performance and improved fuel consumption. The TDI340 engine in the single cab comes with 103kW of power and 340Nm of torque. The bi-Turbo TDI400 engine in the dual cab produces up to 132kW and 400Nm of torque.


Comfort for your team

Seating in the Transporter depends on the cab choice, with 2 or 3 seats for the single cab and 6 seats for the dual cab. The driver’s seat features height and lumbar adjustment for all-day comfort.

Safe and sound on the go

The Transporter Cab Chassis is equipped with various safety and driver assistance systems, so you can spend less time worrying and more time on the job.

Driver Fatigue Detection

Time for a break

The Transporter Cab Chassis includes Driver Fatigue Detection, a system that evaluates steering movements and other independent signals. If fatigue is detected, the driver is warned with an alarm and a signal is shown on the console display to recommend a break2.

Off-road capability

Off course adventures

With 4MOTION and the mechanical differential lock, the Transporter is ready for almost any terrain. 4MOTION allocates the engine’s power across all four wheels as needed, preventing wheel spin and locking, while the mechanical differential lock makes starting up in adverse, off-road conditions much easier.

Multi-Collision Break

Prepared for the unexpected

When the airbag sensors detect a collision, this state-of-the-art safety Multi-Collision Brake system applies the brakes to slow down the vehicle, so that a secondary impact will be lessened or avoided. During braking, the hazard and brake lights are illuminated and remain activated. The driver can take over control at any time2.

Your comfortable workhorse

The Transporter is the perfect balance between comfort and functionality, with a range of features that just make your life easier.


Cool, calm and connected

The Transporter Van boasts a 12.7cm TFT colour touchscreen display, Bluetooth® connectivity, an MP3 and WMA CD drive, 4 speakers, an SD-card slot, an AUX-IN interface, USB input, and a dual tuner with phase diversity for optimal radio reception. Also, you can access your smartphone's screen, selected apps, maps, and music through optional App-Connect4. That's everything you'll need to stay connected from job to job.

Load securing and flooring

No place for playing corners

The optional non-slip Masonite floor lining in the dropside tray keeps the load from sliding about. Lashing eyes are recessed into the side of the tray, providing optimum security for your load, and if you don't need them they can fold down into the surface.


Everything in its place

The intelligent arrangement of the various storage options, compartments, and holders makes the interior a workplace where everything is in perfect order. Valuables can be stored safely in the lockable glove compartment, documents can be tidily filed away in the A4-size middle compartment, and glasses are readily accessible in the roof compartment.
