Ford allows you to do so, with its special work truck, the 2014 Ford ChassisCab. In essence, the 2014 Ford ChassisCab is a 2014 Super Duty without the cargo bed. Imagine that mean-looking and menacing pickup stripped down and at your disposal. Put in a cargo rear end and you have a super strong cargo truck capable of carrying heavy loads such as construction materials, farm products and live animals for the countryside. Customize the rear end and you can turn the ChassisCab into special purpose vehicles like a big tow truck, a medium sized dump truck, maybe even a fire engine.

The powertrain choices of the Super Duty are what the 2014 Ford ChassisCab uses. The base engine is a 6.2L V-8 with an output of 385 horsepower and 405 lbs. of torque.

Another great thing with the 2014 Ford ChassisCab is the presence of customizable upfitter switches on the dashboard. Use them for whatever operations you have; a tilting cargo end or a power lifting door are just some of the possibilities.

2013 Ford Transit Connect: The Dependable Humped Cargo Van

15Some might look at the 2013 Ford Transit Connect with a puzzled look, maybe even giggle and chortle. And who could blame them? With a humped cargo hold while moving at a very slow speed, the Transit Connect is neither eye-catching nor appealing. But then, that’s because the Transit Connect was really designed for other useful purposes. The 2013 Ford Transit Connect is a utility vehicle created to compete with the cargo van. That humped design of its cargo hold maximizes cargo capacity, giving the Transit Connect 135 ft3of space. You can customize the inside to be able to carry all sorts of objects from grocery items to household appliances. If you’re into animal care, you can even place cages for pet animals that you ferry from their owners to the clinic. All Ford Transit Connect models come with just the basic interior necessities: air-conditioning, an integrated blind-spot mirror, rear privacy glass, adjustable driver seat, cloth upholstery, tilt- telescoping steering wheel, and a 2-speaker radio.

With its weak powertrain, the Transit Connect is best used within city limits. Going beyond 60 mph is quite difficult, so you can just imagine the ride experience should you take the Transit Connect to the super highway. But operating inside the city, the Transit Connect does okay. Handling and maneuvering are quite good. Make sure though, that you don’t bump into low hanging signs and billboards with its hump.

The 2013 Ford Transit Connects costs at least $24,000. It will serve you best as a delivery work van. Bring tools, make deliveries, and carry whatever is needed with the Transit Connect.
