Volkswagen has expanded its Crafter large van range with the an all-new Luton model. Introduced as part of the brand’s Engineered-to-Go range of ready-built conversions, it has been designed and developed in partnership with leading British bodybuilder Ingimex.
Based on the adaptable Crafter chassis, the new Luton delivers class-leading payloads and a vast load cube. Constructed using GRP sides and bulkhead and a dip-painted and powder coated bolted frame, the finished bodies come readily modified for the addition of a tail-lift. The load cube has an overall volume of 17m3, while the internal roof height is a healthy 2,120mm.
The new Crafter Luton comes equipped with a host of standard features, including a four-tier load restraint system, a high-strength shutter and rear foot step. Naturally, the bodies are capable of carrying substantial loads and feature a reinforced bottom plank to protect against movement of unsecured loads.
As you would expect, the new Luton conversion meets the latest European standards, and has been designed and engineered to meet Volkswagen’s strict quality and durability controls. The new Luton comes with a three-year warranty that also covers any factory-fitted add-ons.
The Crafter Luton range is offered in long wheelbase and comes with Volkswagen’s 2.0-litre TDI engine with an output of either 136PS or 163PS.
