For paralyzed or impaired drivers or riders, Freedom Motors offers numerous vehicles to ensure mobility is still an option. Last Friday, the company announced General Motors trucks and SUVs are now part of the company’s family.
The Chevrolet Silverado, Chevrolet Suburban, Cadillac Escalade and GMC Sierra can now be fitted with Freedom Motors’ wheelchair accessible packages. According to the company, the package features a hydraulic lift system that handles up to 750 pounds and can withstand even the harshest weather.
Compared to most wheelchair-accessible minivans, the GM SUVs and trucks can deploy the access system in 15 fewer seconds. The system still includes room for five passengers in pickup trucks and seven passengers in SUV models.
The company will perform the necessary work to 4WD and RWD vehicles, and the system can be installed for the driver or passenger side of the truck or SUV. For those interested, order books are now open.
