What Is a Ford Transit Wagon?
The 2018 Ford Transit Wagon is a full-size commercial passenger van. To say it's highly configurable seems like an understatement. When you purchase yours, you choose from a range of different wheelbase, body length, roof heights, and payload rating combinations to create the passenger van that speaks to your specific commercial - or family - needs. You can even add modern comfort features for a more luxurious ride. These include leather upholstery, heated front seats, and Ford's latest infotainment technology, Sync 3, which features complete smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technology.
How Many Passengers Can the Ford Transit Wagon Seat?
Depending on configuration, the Transit Wagon can seat eight, 10, 12, or 15 passengers, with plenty of space left over for everyone's luggage. If you add the high roof, your passengers can even walk down the aisle to take their seats, with interior space that feels more like a bus. With extras like leather upholstery, everyone will enjoy a pleasant ride to the airport.
How Does the Ford Transit Compare to a Minivan?
As far as passenger space is concerned, the Transit Wagon outdoes any minivan. Depending on configuration, you can create a Transit that hauls eight, 10, 12, or 15 passengers. If your brood is an especially big one, this commercial van offers an excellent minivan alternative.
Driving the Transit may actually remind you a bit of a minivan, thanks to its crossover-style handling. This commercial van handles nicely in a tight spot or a winding road, giving you confidence in just about any situation. It certainly travels better than any truck-based commercial van, which can feel clunky in a tight space. And, with three engine options, you can tailor your Transit's performance to match your hauling requirements.
Can the Ford Transit Wagon Tow?
The 2018 Ford Transit Wagon was designed for maximum utility. When you add the towing package, you can transport a trailer packed with company cargo. Tow ratings vary according to body style, but the Transit Wagon maxes out at 7,500 pounds. That's quite a bit of extra pulling power; families can bring a boat along to the beach and businesses can load a trailer full of excess cargo - no problem.
