Volkswagen’s largest van, the Crafter, gets a major update for 2024 with new tech and an electric-inspired redesign.
Volkswagen is set to release an updated version of its largest van, the Volkswagen Crafter, in 2024. The new model will bring a host of technological upgrades and take design cues from the all-electric ID. Buzz.
The 2024 Crafter will feature a new 10.3-inch central screen that can be upgraded to a 12.9-inch display. It will run the latest version of Volkswagen’s infotainment software, similar to what’s found in the ID. Buzz.
Beneath the touchscreen, there are touch-sensitive sliding controls for cabin temperature and audio volume, now illuminated. The Crafter will also come with Volkswagen’s Digital Cockpit instrument display, offering customizable views and layouts using the multifunction steering wheel.
Volkswagen has made changes to the automatic models, replacing the traditional handbrake with an electric one and introducing a new gear selector mounted on the steering column. This update, inspired by the all-electric ID. Buzz, creates space for drink compartments in the center console of automatic Crafter models.
Safety features across the range have been significantly improved. Autonomous emergency braking with cyclist and pedestrian detection, lane keep assist, traffic sign recognition, and a speed limit monitor are now included. Models with a gross vehicle weight of over 3.5 tonnes will come standard with blind-spot detection for added safety in city traffic, along with ‘moving-off information’ to alert the driver if there’s an obstacle in front of the van. The semi-autonomous Travel Assist system, combining adaptive cruise control and lane assist, will be available for the Crafter in 2024.
The new Crafter will continue to offer various body styles and sizes, including closed panel vans and single and double-cab chassis models for customized conversions. It will be available in different weight classes, roof heights, wheelbases, and overall lengths that can stretch up to 7.4 meters.
The 2024 Crafter will be offered with front-wheel, rear-wheel, or all-wheel drive configurations, all powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder diesel engine producing 103kW, 120kW, or 130kW. Transmission options include a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic.
