Volkswagen released an all-new Crafter in 2018, offering a range of body styles, vehicle lengths and heights, engine outputs, transmissions and drivelines, totalling 59 variants.
Powering the Crafter range was Volkswagen’s EA288 Commercial 2.0-litre turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine offered in two states of tune – either 103kW/340Nm or the twin-turbo 130kW/410Nm. A catalytic converter and diesel particulate filter helped to keep emissions down.
Five body styles were available, consisting of three vans – medium wheelbase, large wheelbase and large wheelbase with overhang – as well as single- and dual-cab chassis versions. The vans came with three different roof heights, while the cab-chassis versions could be specified with a medium or long wheelbase.
