DETROIT — Detroit Custom Coach announces its ready to release a new Ford Transit product line to the luxury transportation market, starting with three models using the new Ford Transit. The lineup consists of an Executive Shuttle, Limousine style, and a Business Class model.
CEO of Detroit Custom Coach Chris Ramos expects the Transits to be competitive with the Mercedes Sprinter vehicles in the market. “We’ve worked on Mercedes Sprinters, and they’re great, but all too often we hear complaints of ‘rust’, ‘electrical issues’ and ‘high price’. We strongly feel that the Ford Transit will address all of these concerns” says Ramos.
Detroit Custom Coach was recently selected by Ford Motor Company to showcase their prototype Business Class Transit at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, where it was met with rave reviews. “We know the chauffeur industry well and we’ve worked hard on our designs and engineering, which are built to be functional, serviceable, and of course,look great! SEMA was a great opportunity to share our hard work with the world,” says Ramos.
For the past five years, Detroit Custom Coach has quietly been building, upgrading and servicing custom vehicles for the limousine, food truck, and marketing industries. While honing its skills and refining its processes DCC has built a team that can create a diverse number of vehicle platforms.
Detroit Custom Coach is the first to offer fully customized Ford Transit vans to the limousine and chauffeur industry. Ramos remarks, “We’re hedging all our bets on the new Transit. 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.”
With the launch of its three Transit models, Detroit Custom Coach is re-tooling its shop to accommodate a production line that Ramos aims to produce ten vehicles per month over the next year. “We’re definitely ramping up our shop staff as we grow into our new business model”. Ramos is looking to hire five new fabricators/assemblers by the 1st of the year, with an additional five new hires to follow shortly after.
