What's New for the 2018 Ford Transit?

The Ford Transit is a cargo van unlike any other. It's ideal for very large families or commercial businesses that require a good vehicle for transport. They've added a number of sliding-door combinations on the base trim and then given you a host of new safety, tech, and engine combinations to suit your needs. With colorful options like Oxford white, school bus yellow, white gold metallic, and race red, you're certain to find the perfect color for your everyday driving needs.

2018 Transit Trims and Interior Space

Two models are available: the XL and XLT for the 150 and 250. With 12 big trim levels available, you can configure it any way you want to. Vinyl seats make for one cozy ride, and they can be upgraded to leather trim if you choose to do so. 16" silver steel wheels make for an impressive and intimidating appearance. The tagline of this particular wagon is "People moving smartly," so you can expect a lineup of tech features that will make every journey more organized and pleasant. With room for 15 people, the interior of the Transit is an impressive blend of practicality and comfort. The last row alone provides up to 100.5 cu. ft. of cargo space, and vinyl seating makes it easy to clean and keep tidy as you go along. This is especially important if you're a business that needs a vehicle for your fleet.

Strong Powertrain On The Move

This is especially important in a cargo van, where you're usually carrying a lot of weight with you. Safety is also one of the most important aspects of a passenger wagon, given the number of lives that depend on the performance of a van this size.

Keeping Your Passengers and Cargo Safe

2018 Ford Transit RearAs mentioned before, a vehicle of this size needs a sturdy lineup of safety features, and the Transit doesn't disappoint. A rear view camera makes it easier to prevent accidents altogether, with a great view of the exterior of the vehicle and the surrounding area. Perhaps one of the most impressive features is the Safety Canopy® System, which provides a full-length, side air bag. This is one of the most invaluable features, as it's important to keep everyone in the van safe in case of collision. Features to prevent collisions or accidents include Lane-keeping alert, a handy system that detects when the van has departed from a lane. This can prevent many terrible accidents. The sturdy construction of the physical design also helps to reduce impact in case of collision. The Transit is big, but it's not the biggest vehicle on the road, and with so many passengers riding, it's vital to keep everyone on board safe and sound. Ford did a great job with safety features on this one. Another neat feature is the "rain detecting" wipers, which will automatically start running if rain is detected on the windshield. This keeps the driver focused on the road and frees up more time for attention.
