Born from the vision that transportation in the cutaway sized class should be better in every way, Frontrunner® sets the new standard for fuel economy, convenience, safety, durability and passenger comfort.


Single step curb height entrance to a true flat floor, the low floor Frontrunner challenges decades old norms about how cutaway sized mini-buses should be designed, engineered and built. Embracing the latest in high-strength steel alloy, composite materials in its patented body structure, a waterproof sub-floor, industry leading door opening width, vertically stowed in bus ramp (manual or electric) with the lowest ramp angle in the industry, and a unique purpose-built lowered floor chassis, the Frontrunner® is the most technologically advanced purpose-built low floor mini-bus available today.

Its unprecedented score of 91% at the new Altoona pass/fail durability test sets a new durability standard for buses of all types.  With more than double the fuel economy of a similarly sized bus with a large V8 engine, the Frontrunner is a much Greener alternative to conventional internal combustion engines.

The Frontrunner meets all applicable FMVSS standards and is fully Buy America compliant.

New England Wheels located in Billerica, MA has been setting the standard in mobility transportation since 1988. The Company began its journey as a structural converter of Dodge and Ford vans modified largely for handicapped accessibility. Its Municipal Transporter was the first accessible van to allow for ambulatory and non-ambulatory passengers to board simultaneously, minimizing boarding and unloading and increasing efficiency.  It pioneered the use of one-piece composite flooring in a van adding durability and longevity to the industry standard wood sub-floor.

As a member of the prestigious Ford QVM program, the Company built a solid reputation for quality and dependability.

In 2016 the Company saw an opportunity with the introduction of the RAM Promaster front-wheel drive family of vans and cutaway chassis to introduce a game changing low floor mini-bus. Unencumbered by the drive shaft of a rear-wheel drive vehicle that forced others attempting low floor offerings to compromise their designs, the Frontrunner would break new ground in its design and manufacturing.

Competing low-floor rear wheel drive designs suffer the compromise of a sloping floor from front to back to accommodate the drive shaft. This type of design known as “stadium style flooring” creates a lip where the two uneven surfaces of the ramp and angled floor meet. This ridge makes creates an additional impediment for wheelchairs and occupants alike to enter and exit.
