As mentioned above you can configure your Crafter in more than 80 different ways, so the price range is broad.
The Van range spans from $49,290 to $70,090 (before on-road costs), but if you’re shopping for a van there are really strong driveaway deals being done.
The list prices for the Cab-Chassis line-up start at $49,390 and range through to $65,890 (MSRP). These models are more ‘made to order’ than the in-stock vans that the brand brings in.
And if you need a bus? The Crafter Minibus range spans $68,690 to $76,190.
Okay, but let’s narrow the focus a little to the Crafter we have here - the 50 LWB TDI410 single cab-chassis - which has a list price of $64,180 plus on-road costs, and there are a couple of options fitted, too. As tested, our vehicle has an acoustic reversing warning ($450), painted ladder holder with bulkhead ($1305) and heavy duty suspension with heavy duty stabiliser bars ($690) - making for an all-told as tested price of $66,625 plus on-road costs.
That seems like pretty decent value given the capability and capacity this vehicle offers, and the fact there is such a huge number of body types, heights, lengths and drivetrains simply makes this Crafter model a compelling option for those in the market for a specific workplace solution.
And as standard it comes pretty well kitted out, with a three-seat (1+2) cabin layout, LED cabin lighting, overhead storage, rubber flooring, USB and 2x 12-volt outlets, 8.0-inch touchscreen media with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, air-conditioning, reach and rake steering adjustment and plenty of storage options.
The exterior has a standard-fit alloy drop-side tray, halogen headlights with halogen daytime running lights (DRLs), 16-inch silver steel wheels, full size spare wheel, side reflectors, an end cross member, and there’s a few safety items fitted standard as well - we’ll cover those off in the safety section below.
Further, we’ll cover off a number of available options and accessories in the next section, because you can essentially design your Crafter cab-chassis to be precisely what you need.
