Ford Transit 150: The Ever Popular Commercial Van
The Ford Transit is one of the most popular vans ever produced and the Ford Transit 150 continues the tradition for well-made vehicles that are in demand. Replacing the E-series in some markets, the Transit series comes in a number of different sizes including the 150, which itself is offered in a number of different configurations. Some of the options include a shorter or longer wheelbase and variable head height too. Power is provided by a V6 3.7-litre engine which provides 275 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. This is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. Other engine options include the meatier twin turbocharged 3.5 litre EcoBoost or a 3.2-litre diesel that provides an impressive 350 lb.-ft. of torque and is an economical option for longer journeys. For those concerned with low emissions, a package is available to convert to compressed natural gas or LPG.
The interior of the Ford Transit 150 is designed to provide the maximum possible space, as you might expect with room for up to 11 occupants plus plenty of cargo. With three rows of seating in position, the Transit 150 still offers 94 cubic feet. In real terms, that means enough space for approximately 23 full sized suitcases. If you max out the seating to 11 occupants, there's still plenty of room for 10 suitcases. If you decide to skimp on the seating there's an array of storage options for the back, including shelving, storage bins or racks. Access to the seating or the storage is via the side doors where you'll have the option of either hinges or sliding doors. Apart from the seating and the storage, the interior of the Ford Transit looks more like a car than a van with numerous cupholders and a dashboard that's been lifted almost straight out of the Focus. The trim you choose will determine the extras but look out for accessories such as satellite radio, Bluetooth, USB ports and Bluetooth connectivity.
Safe and Comfortable Drive
The Transit is capable of carrying large loads so the ability to feel secure is imperative. Ford offers its usual package of driver aids including ABS, stability control, Trailer Sway Control and cleverly designed door mirrors which more or less eliminates blind spots. The Ford Transit 150 provides a spacious van for multiple passengers or large amounts of cargo, as well as being comfortable and easy to drive.
