Vehicle Description


Introducing the new VT3 from Turtle Top, the next generation in mid-sized bus design! Groundbreaking technology and construction methods allows for a 17 passenger capacity while still getting up to 18 miles per gallon. The VT3 is built on the new Ford Transit cutaway and offers a wider interior width than the standard Ford Transit or Mercedes Sprinter vans. Along with an automotive interior finish, the VT3 is a quiet ride, with interior noise levels similar to BMWs and other luxury sedans. As the only mid-sized bus available with a diesel engine option, the VT3 is perfect for your small shuttle bus and executive coach needs. DESIGNED TO MEET OR EXCEED APPLICABLE FMVSS STANDARDS and FORD QVM
