Broadcast Vehicles: HORIZON HD 3500 SERIES

The ALL NEW Horizon HD-3500, based on the Chevrolet Express or Ford Transit T-350, represents the pinnacle of SUPER HEAVY DUTY VAN platforms for news gathering. Offering the industries best 96-RU of engineered rack-space and the MOST POWERFUL and FUEL EFFICIENT powertrains the industry has ever seen, the new Horizon has become an instant classic.

Searching for an alternative to the venerable Ford E-350, which has been a staple of our industry for more than 20 years, was no easy task. One thing is certain however...when it comes to FLEET vehicles, no one understands "severe-duty" use like AMERICAN truck manufacturers...and no one does it better than General Motors and Ford! The rock solid performance of Chevrolet and Ford trucks is legendary. Accelerated Media, in an unprecedented cooperative effort with General Motors and FORD, is proud to introduce our "next generation" ENG, SNG and DS/ENG platform based on a custom configured Chevrolet HD-3500 Express and Ford Transit...specially configured with the BROADCAST industry in mind. Available is Gasoline, DIESEL and an all NEW FACTORY CNG configuration, the new platforms are packed with features.
