We’re writing a series of articles highlighting some of the best package delivery trucks available. Today we’re going to shed some light on the 2015 Ford Transit.
The Ford Transit is one of the top competitors in the new euro-style cargo van segment that have taken over the industry. With the introduction of the new Transit, Ford has discontinued the Ford E-series van. This versatile platform boasts best in class fuel economy and maintains the roominess of the old E-series panel cargo vans (500 cu. ft. storage in the largest model). The versatile chassis is even being used for a number of different cutaway models including the upcoming Utilimaster Velocity Step Van.
The Ford Transit is a great van for getting into tight places. With a turning circle of approximately 56 ft. and it’s sleek profile, this van can go places your typical step van or straight truck can’t go.
