First look: VW Crafter is new Sprinter's sister

Crafty: New VW van and cab-chassis will come in three wheelbases.

Sister model to Benz's new Sprinter, Crafter is VW's LT van/cab-chassis replacement

8 Dec 2005

VOLKSWAGEN has released details of its forthcoming Crafter large van and cab-chassis range, which is a sister model to the all-new Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and will replace the current LT series in Australia early in 2007.

To be launched in Europe in April, the Crafter is being touted as a new chapter in the 30-year history of the LT (or large transporter).

It bears little resemblance to its predecessor and will offer a choice of three wheelbases, four load compartment lengths, three roof heights, a six-speed manual gearbox and an automated manual and a full range of engines including a hi-tech 2.5-litre five-cylinder common-rail turbo-diesel engine that will be available with 65kW, 80kW, 100kW and 120kW of power depending on the application.
