Most excellent info! Also means it's getting closer to being market ready

Wider and better looking rims with wider tires would give the Transit a good stance.

Just got this info from Newberg Ford, Newberg, Oregon.
Looks they will be selling both Quigley and Quadvan 4x4 Transits!


Will be selling Quigley and Quadvan 4 X 4 Transits.

Neither in stock yet, Quadvan still months away from being done with prototypes, and Quigley vans will be here in about 3 months

Quadvan will have no lift, the Quigley’s will have 2” lifts.

It's almost insane that Ford has the powertrain to do a 4x4 and didn't offer it here.

Agree. Ford has Euro AWD hardware which they could use in US, as a minimum. I'm guessing they don't because they either don't think there is enough interest, or else because of liability concerns. I'd bet on it being fear of getting sued the first time someone gets injured.

It could be that introducing a brand new product (in the US) with three different lengths, three heights, three engines, and a load of different options, was enough of a challenge right at the start from a logistics and manufacturing perspective. And also considering the demand would mostly be for contractor type vans.

Ford is competitive, and now that Sprinter has 4X4, they may feel the pressure to do the same. If so, it's going to hurt Quigley and QV big time.

They may indeed be waiting to get production capacity up first, but the fact that they didn't have a factory Econoline 4X4 says a lot.

This is probably the key reason why Ford is not bringing the Euro 4x4 here.

Quigley has been a loyal Ford-approved upfitter for decades.

Bringing the Euro 4x4 here could cause serious damage to partners like Quigley.

The market for vans, cab/chassis and cutaways depends heavily on upfitters.

Not pissing off upfitters is the reason the E-Series cutaway even still exists.

Notice how Quigley has never once touched the Sprinter in all the years it's been here?
