2016 Ford Transit
While the Ford Transit is relatively new to North American roads, it has 50 years of history behind it as one of Europe's most depended-upon light commercial vans. Introduced to Canada in 2015, just in time to help Ford become Canada's Best-Selling Automotive Brand Seven Years in a Row (2009-2015), the Transit has already shown itself to be immensely valuable to the hard-working people and businesses throughout Canada. The 2016 Ford Transit is available in five different trim levels: Transit Van, Transit Wagon XL, Transit Wagon XLT, Transit Chassis Cab, and Transit Cutaway.
Flexible and Reliable
The 2016 Ford Transit is a truly customizable piece of equipment - three different lengths and three different roof heights are available, depending on your needs. All versions have two doors for the front seats, while a set of rear doors and a sliding side door are part of the Van and Wagon. Sturdy sheet metal features throughout while the Wagon version features tinted windows. Halogen headlamps light the way while much of the trim and mouldings are black plastic. Chrome trim and a chrome grille, along with special-edition wheels, highlight the XLT's exterior. Heated sideview mirrors are available to prevent ice and snow buildup in the winter, while long-arm power mirrors are great for getting a larger view of what is going on to your rear, especially if you are towing.
Passenger seating in the 2016 Ford Transit depends on your needs. Both the Van and Cutaway have seating for two in the front, while the Ford Transit Wagon has seating for up to 15 depending on the packages chosen. Vinyl is the primary upholstery, which is perfect for Transit models that will see a lot of worksite use, while available cloth upholstery is great for comfort, particularly in the Wagon. Passenger cabin space all depends on the body chosen, and can range up to 12,612 litres, while cargo capacity can range up to 13,080 litres inside the largest trim levels. A variety of information and entertainment systems are available, up to and including the latest Ford SYNC 3 system with a 6.5-inch colour LCD touch screen and navigation. Most importantly, all Transit models can be upfitted with storage and shelving solutions to serve whatever you are looking for in terms of customization. Prep packages available for the Transit model include Ambulance Prep, Builder's Prep, Motorhome Prep, RV Prep, School Bus Prep, and Shuttle Bus Prep Packages.
