Biggest van they make, handles like a large car

by Peachy Dad from Valdosta, GA | March 10, 2020

bought the extended high roof option, with turbo 3.5 Ecoboost engine. gets remarkably good mileage, handles well for a rolling billboard, but cross winds disturb it. installed rear antisway bar and improved stability. installed crew cab second row seats for family, used it as furniture hauler, scrap metal hauler, firewood hauler. Does everything well without complaints. May turn it into food truck later. Installed inverter and deep cell batteries beneath the floor for 110 volt power but have rarely used it so far.

Great cargo van. Easy to handle. Very reliable.

My husband wants to become a food distributor just to keep it and continue driving it. Very nice. Handles well. Would consider buying one myself. Reasonably priced.

First transit love this van

by Vanar from Lake worrh, fl | October 19, 2018

I use this for a service business. The only issue I have is that maybe they could make a more comfortable seat. I drive several hours sometimes could really use some extra comfort there. Other than that I could not be happier with this van. Handles great maneuvers great easy to drive.
