Things That Make The Ford Transit Recovery Truck Stand Out

The Ford Transit recovery truck comes with a bunch of features, which make it stand out among other car transporters.

  • Impressive Payload: Despite being only a small van, the Ford Transit recovery truck has a payload of up to 1,350 kg, which is more than enough for most average-sized cars.
  • Features: This Transit car transporter is equipped with a bunch of features for maximum convenience. However, what stands out the most are the powerful beavertail ramps for easy loading. You’ll also get an electric ramp to get your disabled cars out of difficult situations.

About The Ford Transit Recovery Truck

The recovery truck is based on the chassis of the Ford, a family of light commercial vehicles from Ford. While the Transit is primarily is cargo van, it is available in various other configurations, such as passenger vans, cutaway van chassis, and a flatbed chassis for pickup trucks and recovery trucks.

History of The Ford Transit Recovery Truck

Ford introduced the Transit in 1965 and it became a hit globally because of its versatility and reliability. The idea of using the Transit as a recovery truck, however, only started in the 1970s and 1980s. Following some improvements in engine performance, safety features and overall design, the Transit became more suitable for demanding roles, including vehicle recovery.

By the 1990s, Ford began to introduce special versions of the Transit, including models specifically designed for recovery operations. These models had stronger chassis and advanced towing capabilities.

Over the next two decades, the vehicle maker continued to improve engine efficiency and added some advanced safety features to the van. Today, the Ford Transit recovery truck continues to be a top choice for vehicle recovery services worldwide.
