MobilitySVM is paving the way in the mobility industry when it comes to their wheelchair accessible trucks and their 2014 Chevy Silverado is no exception. This new model offers upgraded styling and upgrades to the conversion, making it even easier for those in wheelchairs to have access to transportation.
Improvements in the 2014 version, as compared to previous GoShichi and MobilitySVM trucks, includes a lift cycle time that has gone done from 46 seconds to only 32 seconds. Fuel economy ha also improved in conjunction with a weight reduction on the conversion from 900 pounds to just 450 pounds. The pan that holds the wheelchair is bigger than in previous models and can easily handle wheelchairs up to 28 3/4" wide. It also has an outstanding 750 pound lifting capacity. MobilitySVM also added a brand new feature, a latch that allows the converted door to be opened as a normal door would, making it easy for ambulatory passengers to ride or drive. As always, all MobilitySVM trucks are crash tested and meet FMVSS front, side, and rear impact requirements.
Just like older version, the new 2014 Chevy Silverado can be converted for either driver or passenger accessibility. The new 2014 model promises to be lighter, faster, and have improved functionality over the 1st generation trucks. Improvements, according to edmunds.com, include:
New, more fuel-efficient engines; improved interior; quiet highway ride. Redesigned for 2014, the Chevrolet Silverado benefits from weight reduction and a lineup of new, more fuel-efficient engines including a now-competitive V6."
Chevy has also gone a long way towards improving their trucks' V6 engines so they are as powerful and yet more fuel efficient than their V8 engines. This new Chevy features the re-engineered V6 engine. It offers 285 horsepower, 305 pound-feet of torque, and has a towing capacity of up to 7,200 pounds when it is equipped properly. Fuel economy on the standard non-converted version of the truck is also impressive at an estimated 18 mpg city and 24 mpg highway. View Truck Inventory
