What a company’s commercial vehicle needs may vary, depending on the type of business. Some business need to keep their merchandise cool or even frozen, and in Hawthorne, that’s a tall task for most commercial trucks. That is, unless it’s one of the Ford Transit refrigerated trucks from South Bay Ford. We carry the trucks you need to get your precious cargo to its destination no worse for wear.
You won’t find the Ford Transit equipped like this anywhere else. South Bay Ford has partnered with Delta-STaG to build a fully-enclosed interior cargo space that’s perfect for any level of refrigeration.
The basis of every Transit refrigerated truck is a new, fully-original Transit van. Every company has different needs, and the Transit is the right canvas for every one of them. Choose from three different roof heights – the Low roof, Medium roof, and High roof, which allows for standing space and more cargo capacity than the others.
As well, you have your choice of wheelbases. Choose the regular-length Transit with cargo space for a full-size pallet. The Transit XL has room for two standard pallets, while the Transit Extended model can accommodate the equivalent of three full-size pallets.
The Transit also comes with your choice of hardworking Ford engines. It has a standard-equipment 3.7-liter Ti-VCT V6, an extremely powerful 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, or a dependable 3.2-liter Power Stroke Turbo Diesel option.
With each of the refrigerated trucks offered, the cargo space is framed out and insulated with high-density polyurethane spray foam. The floor is lined with slip-resistant aluminum and the walls receive Chemline panels for an easy-to-clean, scratch resistant finish.
What it all comes down to is keeping your cargo just the right temperature. With that in mind, two options are available for refrigeration. You can choose from either a Thermo King refrigeration unit or a Carrier rooftop-mounted refrigeration system. Both are well-known, well-respected, and highly-sought after units that won’t let you down.
The Transit’s engine operates the refrigeration unit, cycling the system to circulate cold air while the engine is running. And if you need your cargo to stay cold even with the engine off, there’s a solution for that also. Both types of units are equipped with external plugs, allowing the refrigeration unit to be plugged into an appropriate power source.
At South Bay Ford, your commercial vehicle options are limited only by your imagination. Refrigeration trucks can be created from the compact Transit Connect with incredible fuel efficiency, or from the Ford Econoline Van as well.
The partnership with Delta-STaG has opened up the world of refrigerated trucks in Hawthorne and the surrounding area. You have the most reliable Ford commercial vehicle models at your fingertips along with the best refrigeration systems to fit automotive applications.
