Awesome traveling vehicle

by Beth from Hillsville, Va on Thu Jul 26 2018

Would certainly purchase this vehicle again. This is just the sort of van we were looking for. It is comfy and very roomy and our furbabies love it.

New Transit 150

by BigAndy from Carmel, IN on Wed Aug 23 2017

I use my work van for a personal car, and I have driven cargo vans since the '70s. This new Transit is different breed from my E-150s and Espresses from the past. The new Transit has a distinctly European feel. The bucket seats (mine is a 6 way power seat) are much more "buckety" that past vans. They are nothing like the Lazy Boy like seats I've had in earlier vans. That's not a bad thing, just be prepared. The controls feel European too. The shifter is a short, dashmounted lever. The turn signal stalk only moves about 3/4" in use. The steering wheel feels smaller with the look of a passenger car. Steering is very light and tight. Where older American made vans leaned and floated through turns, this new van stays flat. Tires these days are harder with less rolling resistance to improve gas mileage, and you will definitely feel the difference if you're moving from an Express or E150. Styling is less "Detroit" with bumpers pulled in tight, little chrome, no spokes on the base wheels, and split front door windows. Even the exhaust note is high and quiet. My 4.3L 6cyl Express had a much lower rumble with the factory exhaust. The engine noise on the new Transit is mostly gear and alternator whine. I did not opt for the EcoBoost turbo. As an old school wrencher, I remembered that turbos add a highly complex (troublesome) extra system to any motor. My friends with EcoBoost trucks say I'm wrong! They enjoy the extra power and mileage, and say the turbo wasn't just bolted on, but engineered for durability. We will see. Visibility is excellent with an enormous windshield and side windows. The rear camera is great to use, and the mirrors are better than past factory units. Yes, I have a few things to get used to but my old van was ready for retirement with 200K miles, and I insist on buying US made trucks. The Express is no longer available with a V6 and 1/2 ton chassis, and the Ram van is a Fiat with upgraded running gear that's built in Mexico. If you need a light, full sized van, my recommendation is the Transit. I purchased my '17 from Mike Raisor Ford in Lafayette, IN.

Compared to the rest, it's the best

by Edmann12003 from Kenosha, Wisconsin on Wed May 03 2017

Smoother ride than expected and easy to work on with plenty of power for a people mover. Sits up high and commands the road. Unique styling takes a bit to get used to but awesomely priced compared to the old Chevy and GMC. Great turning radius and easy to drive. Take it from a car guy, you can't go wrong.

So far so good, a very comfortable large van

by HHM from on Sat Jun 10 2017

The 3.5 ltr engine has plenty of power, it's great on the highway, and tons of room. 20mpg highway over 2 day, 1000 mile drive, more like 16 mpg city with lots of hills. It is the long wheelbase, medium roof version. Backup camera and alert are a big bonus. Cruise control is flawless, engine brake on tow package works well. Seats could be a bit more plush, but basically comfy for the long haul. I use it for work, not just fun, great for all the tools I need. Surprised how it feels smaller and rides so well.

Seller makes the difference!

by KEGcaterer from Omaha on Thu May 24 2018

A cargo van is pretty simple, a box with a motor and wheels. The difference with this van was made by Schrier Automotive. I was taken care of quickly and efficiently. I'll be a Schrier buyer from now on!!!

only owned it 1 month.

by jwn from L.I. New York on Thu Oct 26 2017

radio pre-set buttons too far from driver. climate control knobs could be more accessible . for me the driver seat must be lowered & moved completely back to get up & enter the cargo area, afterwards you have to readjust it to the proper driving position. Will be used as a camper van, and for traveling. MPG could be better.
