VMI / Tuscany Ford Full Size Wheelchair Vans

Why choose a full size Ford van for your mobility application? The answer is simple... if comfortable seating for up to seven passengers combined with a spacious "trunk" for all the things you take on the road are important to you a full size Ford mobility van is the only solution. Full size vans offer many optional accessories that make accessibility and comfort a seamless part of your everyday transportation routine.

Take a look beyond the surface of the full size van and you will see the clear advantages of the many optional adaptive features offered. A long list of options and the combined experience of two of the industry's leaders... imagine the possibilities for your next van.

Lowering the floor 6" allows the person using a wheelchair to remain seated at the appropriate height and offers a natural view from the interior of the van. Another benefit of a lowered floor over a raised roof is convenience in everyday driving and parking.

Tuscany's raised roof option allows for more headroom than a 6" lowered floor van plus additional overhead storage. Roof supports add structural integrity to the chassis to compensate for metal removed in the raised roof and raised door process.

Tuscany's raised roof with raised doors is ideal for those who sit higher in their wheelchair. The raised door allows for more height in the entryway of the van.

Front driver or passenger transfer seats swivel 90 degrees at the touch of a button, allowing you to transfer from your wheelchair to either front seat, quickly and easily. Six-way operation lets you make adjustments up, down, forward, back and rotation right and left.

Tuscany has joined forces with VMI, a manufacturer and distributor of the most reliable, highest quality and most easily accessible transportation in the world. VMI's mobility products enable consumers to travel with comfort, convenience and peace of mind. Combining winning technologies, our companies have joined together to better serve the growing and changing needs of the mobility consumer.
