According to Chris Ramos, CEO of DCC, the decision to upfit the Ford Transit vehicles came from the popularity of the high-roof Sprinter vehicles. Ford is a familiar brand in the industry with access to a network of dealers the industry is already familiar with. The Transit will be DCC’s flagship chassis and will be incorporated into its other divisions as well.
“We’re hedging all our bets on the new Transit,” says Ramos. “It’s a beautiful vehicle and is more affordable and accessible to customers. From mobile offices to limousine interiors, the Ford Transit offers a versatile platform for both work and pleasure. The platform will allow for countless configurations. Having Ford in our backyard is a huge plus for us as we’ll be able to communicate quickly and even have Ford staff to our facility for any troubleshooting issues.”
DCC was also recently selected by Ford to showcase its prototype business class model Transit at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, where Ramos says it was met with rave reviews. “We know the chauffeured industry well and we’ve worked hard on our designs and engineering, which are built to be functional, serviceable, and, of course, beautiful. SEMA was a great opportunity to share our hard work with the world.”
