Why Buy the 2018 Ford Transit Van?

The Ford Transit is a full-size van for hardworking folks who need to get their equipment from A to B. Though there is an Passenger Wagon option to customize the Transit as a family van, few families these days need anything near fifteen seats. (For large families, the Transit Connect that seats up to eight should be enough.) No, the majority of Transit owners will use their van as a cargo hauler. And, boy does it haul! One of the surprising things about a van this size is just how quickly it accelerates. For all its bulk, it can go from 0 to 60 in 7.6 seconds.

Transit drivers can sit comfortably in cloth or charcoal leather seats, knowing they've chosen a safe and reliable, but powerful vehicle. The van scored high marks in both front and side crash tests. It didn't fare as well in rollover tests, but a van weighing three tons shouldn't roll easily. The Transit's safety features include front airbags, AdvanceTrac with roll stability control, and Tire Pressure Monitoring System. Those features ought to be make you and your insurance company happy.

Whether you're a plumber, electrician, shuttle driver, builder, carpenter, or anything inbetween, you're hauling equipment and goods every day. The Ford Transit has you covered.

But the Transit has tons more space: it boasts up to 487 cubic feet of cargo capacity, the equivalent of six Ford truck beds.

How Can a Ford Transit Van Be Customized?

Replace the back with a chassis cab or leave it as a cutaway to transform it with the vocational packages: the Motorhome Prep Package, Multi-Functional School Activity Bus Prep Package, Shuttle Bus Prep Package, School Bus Prep Package, or Ambulance Prep Package. No matter what your need, chances are the 2018 Ford Transit has a configuration for you.
