Select Vpg Used Engine Model

Used VPG engine

VPG or the Vehicle Production Group is a U.S. carmaker brand, based in Miami, Florida. Their used VPG engine They make wheelchair passenger-focused taxicabs – the MV-1 or the Mobility Vehicle. They built the car in Indiana’s AM General plant. The production began in 2011, only to go defunct in 2013. They soon laid off their employees and shut the shop. Once their assets reached below the $50 million mark, they procured a clean-energy loan from the U.S. Department of Energy in 2011.

Later, AM General agreed with the U.S. Department of Energy in 2013. They brought off the $50 million DOE loan for just $3 million. From there, AM General established Mobility Venture to continue with the production from 2014. Since, it’s a purpose-built vehicle, producing parts for the MV 1 can get tough. It is where we come in. At Turbo Autoparts, you can purchase a used VPG engine and help sustain this special-purpose car.

Standard Taxi

Standard Taxi is the first purpose-built taxicab prototype from VPG. They launched it at the 2005 International Association of Transportation Regulators (IATR) conference. Also, they unveiled it again at the Taxicab, Limousine, and Paratransit Association (TLPA) annual convention in Las Vegas. News on the tie-up with AM General to build standard Taxi cabs from 2009, circulated the previous year. Subsequently, they planned productions from 2010 but later dropped it. From the specifications side, the taxicab would feature a GM SEFI 4.3 L Vortec V6 engine. It would brag a fuel capacity of over 91 liters.

The taxicab was styled as a 4 door mini-van. The can will employ front engine and rear wheel drive. The wheelbase was a decent 118″ and the length, width, and height dimensions were 196.5″, 79.4″, and 75″ respectively. The vehicle got a lot of feedback from the targeted customer base. VPG worked on a more advanced and consumer-friendly MV-1. Hence, MV1 succeeded in this model in the later years. The stepping stone of the awesome MV1 is this model – Standard Taxi. The move from the Vehicle Production Group is commendable, considering there is not a lot of work in this purpose-specific market segment.

MV-1

MV-1 is a purpose-built SUV, manufactured in Indiana. The initials stand for Mobility Vehicle 1. The company delivered the first MV-1 to Marc Buoniconti, the disabled American football player. It’s more advanced and user-friendly than Standard Taxi. It can commute 6 adults and two wheelchairs in a single go. The 30″ ramp extends from within the SUV to the road, allowing your wheelchair passenger to get in easily.

The ramp can be activated with switches at the front door and the back door. There are constraints to tying down the chair to the rubber floor. Moreover, the wheelchair passenger can get to the front seat to enjoy the ride even better and ride with dignity. The seatbelt comfortably sits over your wheelchair passenger’s chest. There is an ample amount of space in the back seat passenger area. Even as a normal car, the MV-1 provides an amazing driving experience like any other SUV.

The taxicab was styled as a 4 door mini-van. The can will employ front engine and rear wheel drive. Until 2014, it was fitted to a 4-speed automatic transmission. During 2015-16, they offered the additional option of a 6-speed automatic transmission. The wheelbase was a decent 102″ and the length, width, and height dimensions were 205″, 79.4″, and 75″ respectively. Its predecessor is none but the standard taxi from VPG itself. Initially, AM General performed as the manufacturer under a contract with Vehicle Production Group. Later, they purchased off VPG assets, making it a complete subsidiary of AM General. Then, they launched their brand – Mobility Ventures, which would deal with the MV-1. They dealt with the distribution, marketing, and after-sales activities.

Vehicle specifications:

In Paul Rudd’s flick, ‘The Fundamentals of Caring’ in 2015, MV-1 played a role. Though it is very popular in some circles, the mainstream public hardly knows about this car. Originally, developers intended MV-1 to be a GM pickup truck, sporting the standard GM drivetrain. But, the concept model got a Roush-designed Chassis. Also, they brought in a powertrain from the Ford Crown Victoria model. Nevertheless, it’s still a robust body-on-frame model, coming along with fully boxed rails. It used the Ford’s Modular 4.6 L V8 engine that powers a horsepower of 248 hp.

Tying up with Clean Energy Inc., MV-1 also offers CNG fuel options. The CNG option offers an estimated capacity of 296 miles. That is with three tanks fitted to the MV-1. Fuel economy varies with the type of application – 14 miles per gallon in the city, the 16 miles per gallon on highways. Overall, it averages 15 miles per gallon in day-to-day usage. The SUV drives as competent and powerful as a standard SUV. The purpose-built design in no way compromises the power and performance of your SUV. The safety and comfort features are top-notch, to say the least. Additionally, it brings that extra bit of comfort to your wheelchair passenger.

I was nervous to buy an engine on line. I've heard a lot of bad stories but they got me a beautiful Infiniti qx80 engine in a timely manner and it's running great. I would use them again.
