Volkswagen Transporter (T4)
The Transporter T4 was landmark for Volkswagen in that it was the first time the engine was water cooled and front mounted which would become the standard for future models. The T4 was available as a 4, 5 or 5 door van as well as a 2, 3 or 4 door pickup in the following body types.
- Panel Van - No Rear Passenger or Cargo Windows
- Half Panel "Kombi Van" - No Windows in Cargo Area
- Caravelle / Multivan - Windows Front to Rear
- Westfalia - VW Produced Campervan
- Doka - Pickup Style Platform Behind Cab
The only major design change over the 13 year production run was in 1996 when a longer front end was brought to market in order to fit a larger six cylinder VR6 engine. These are referred to as long nose or T4b while the original short nose versions are known as T4a.
Volkswagen Eurovan Engines:
Various basic gasoline or petrol engines were available including a 1.8 and 2.0 liter inline-4 cylinder engine and two different 2.5 liter inline five cylinder models that produced over 100 horsepower. The 2.8 VR6 produced 138 horsepower while a 2.8L 24V six cylinder produced over 200 hp. Diesel engines included 1.9L inline 4 and 2.4L inline 5 cylinder models while three different 2.5L inline five cylinder Turbocharged Direct Injection engines were offered.
Campervans & Class C Motorhomes
While the standard Eurovan passenger models only sold one year (1993) in the US due to lack of interest, the camper van variations were and still are highly popular with RV enthusiasts. Despite the discontinuation in the US, sales continued in Canada and Mexico.
VW reintroduced the Eurovan including the MV Weekender a Westfalia conversion featuring a pop-top roof and overhead bed among other camper features for model year 1999 to the US. Because of the import gap, 1994-1998 Eurovans are rare in the US. The exception is the Eurovan Camper brought to the USA and Canada by Winnebago in 1995 which featured a longer wheelbase and small pop top camper.
Winnebago also built three different class C motorhomes named the Rialta, Vista and Sunstar. The Sunstar was sold under the Itasca brand one of Winnebago's subsidiaries. The Rialta was available from 1995 through 2005 while the Vista and Sunstar were only available from 2002-2004.
