Despite its massive forehead and top-heavy appearance, this commercial-grade van is better to drive and more comfortable than you'd think. This Ford Transit comes with the medium-height roof. Believe it or not, there's an even taller model available. You don't need to pastor a megachurch or run a plumbing-supply company to own a Ford Transit van. Those are admittedly the sort of customers this vehicle is aimed at, but it's comfortable and pleasant enough to drive that you might consider one for your small business or your family, especially if you've got a large brood or just want a versatile camping rig.

Ford Transit Review, Pricing, and Specs
Ford offers scores of configurations to fit into your needs, plus a host of driver-assistance features standard. Whatever the job requirements or family needs, the Transit is up to it. The Ford Transit's upgrades over the model year are few but should make those hauling gear happy. An electronic parking brake is now standard on all single rear-wheel variants, and three new colors join the options sheet: Abyss Gray, Avalanche, and Carbonized Gray. Without any powertrain or other substantial updates to the Ford Transit, we anticipate its pricing to stay roughly the same.
Ford Transit van review
The Ford Transit has been an icon in the van market since it was launched in and has held an unprecedented grip on the title of best-selling van in the UK. Its name is synonymous with big vans, but with the Transit range now being broken down into subdivisions of Transit, Transit Custom , Transit Connect and Transit Courier, the Transit name is more prevalent than ever. As well as revising its engines in to meet the ever-stricter Euro-6d emissions standards, Ford took the opportunity to update the Transit more comprehensively. Hence, there's a new grille, which is a subtle alteration to the existing design, as well as some crease lines in the bonnet to toughen up the front end appearance.
For a country known for trucks, America still buys a hell of a lot of vans. Last year Ford sold , of them here, more units than it moved in van-heavy Europe. These vans dominated our market for decades, powered by understressed and incredibly thirsty V-8s. But then European-style vans started showing up. Stubbier noses, bigger cargo-to-footprint ratios, and smaller engines made them more usable in cities.
