Adapt your Crafter chassis to perfectly suit you – it’s as flexible as your business needs. Whether as a tipper, refrigerated van or a tow truck, Crafter chassis gets your business moving

Driver Systems

Crafter can handle a lot, thanks to its transverse-mounted engine. The Crafter with front-wheel drive has the greatest loading height and the largest loading volume in its class. Where others reach their limits, it just keeps on going: the rear-wheel drive handles heavy trailer loads with the best traction, even when fully loaded. It has a high towing capacity of up to 3.5 tonnes and a gross combined weight of up to 8.0 tonnes. With 4MOTION all-wheel drive it gives you brilliant performance on any terrain with reliable traction and the best directional stability.

Perfect for city driving

Crafter Chassis cab safely and reliably handles almost any situation in heavy city traffic with its innovative driver assistance and safety systems. Available as an option, Trailer Assist automatically manoeuvres the vehicle if fitted with a trailer during parallel and reverse parking. Available as standard, Front Assist uses a radar to monitor your distance from the traffic in front and alerts you if you're too close. City Emergency Braking reduces the chance of a collision by triggering emergency braking when it detects critical distances. The optional Lane Assist warns you if you're departing your lane, with integrated cornering lights, electronic stabilisation and hill assist systems come as standard. It also features a system that triggers braking after a collision to prevent a second impact.

You’ll find a space for whatever you need in the Crafter chassis cab. From files and folders to coffee cups and rulers, you'll find a home for everything. And you can charge laptop and power tool batteries using the optional 230 V socket on the driver’s seat between jobs.
