Chausson Gets Auto'd!


CHAUSSON MOTORHOMES GET AUTO`d !!

Ford has launched it`s new automatic transmission for the Ford Transit and it’s a beauty !!

Niche but growing market

Ford says it has identified a growing demand for Automatic Transmission, especially with Motorhome Owners. So It is now offering the six speed transaxle, that has been developed in North America and used on vehicles such as the Ford Taurus and Ford Explorer, on it`s front-wheel drive versions of the Ford Transit, which of course CHAUSSON Motorhomes have been using for several years now..

A proven performer

The six-speed transaxle has been at work in American Fords for a decade, and is renowned for its quick and smooth gearshifts. This is because it uses a fluid coupling (called the torque converter clutch design) rather than the traditional mechanical clutch. It is also very durable and has a torque capacity of more than 415Nm.

For Transit applications, Ford has optimised the shift programme to get the most from the newly-developed 2-litre EcoBlue diesel, using early upshifts and the locking torque converter feature to maximise fuel economy.

Ford hasn’t stated the official fuel economy figures, but  anecdotally our customers are confirming impressive returns between late twenties and mid thirties.

Intelligent design

A number of intelligent features have also been introduced to make the new vehicles easier to drive. For example, the transmission can detect when the vehicle is on roads with steep gradients, or has heavy loads, and adjusts the shifting strategy for optimum performance.

The adaptive learning feature allows the transmission to adapt its shift performance and how frequently it changes gears over the lifetime of the vehicle based on how the vehicle is driven. Plus the SelectShift facility allows the driver to manually change gears if they prefer.

T C MOTORHOMES  have long recognised this growing interest in Automatic Transmissions from its Motorhome Customers,  and reflects this demand in its New Motorhome ordering.

So, if it`s AUTOMATIC Transmission that you are looking for on your new Motorhome, look no further than T C Motorhomes, we have an excellent spread of New CHAUSSON MOTORHOMES with manual and AUTOMATIC Transmissions, from both our chassis providers, Fiat & Ford.

Chausson 640 Welcome Handover



Hamish & Heather are pictured taking delivery of their new Chausson 640 Welcome Motorhome,

They took the decision back in January to purchase the 640 from us.

But with a protracted availability of this premium brand new Motorhome model, they decided to go off and tour various parts of the world first, using public transport wherever possible.

The Chausson 640 is just 7 x metres in length and so is compact yet spacious inside, and can sleep up to 4 x persons.

It has a large drop-down double bed and a full width washroom, and a large rear garage.

Hamish & Heather will make good use of the garage,  with plans to travel right down through Europe for weeks and maybe months on end, visiting many of the places they didn’t get chance to recently!

Shane Catterick and everyone at T C Motorhomes thanks them for their valued business, and wishes them both lots of fun with their new motorhoming adventure.

For more information about the Chausson 640 or indeed any of the Chausson Motorhomes
