2018 Ford Transit-150

This year, the 2018 Ford Transit-150 brings a number of small upgrades to the table, which include the newly available Bluetooth functionality for the audio system, as well as an improved rearview camera, power-fold mirrors, power locks, exit handle for the rear cargo door, locking glove box, and a cargo area LED lamp switch.

Features and Options

The Transit-150 is a full-sized cargo van which boasts a gross vehicle weight rating of 8,550 lbs. to 8,600 lbs. It's available in several different engine options, a 3.7-liter V6, a turbocharged 3.2-liter diesel inline-five, or a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6. These engines put out anywhere from 185 horsepower to 310 horsepower, with torque ratings ranging from 260 through 400 pound-feet.

There's only a single trim level for this cargo van, and it delivers power accessories, keyless entry, cargo tie-downs, tilt/telescope steering wheel, rearview camera, air conditioning in the front, trailer hitch assist, and an audio system with four speakers and auxiliary input.

You can get add-ons, either standalone or in package choices which offer things like power fold long-arm mirrors, power running boards, parking sensors, cruise control, automatic headlights, automatic wipers, remote start, rear A/C, lane departure warning, Bluetooth, the Ford Sync or Sync 3 systems, CD player, HD and satellite radio, and a range of other infotainment upgrades.

Driving, Comfort and Interior Appointments

 The Transit is a surprisingly pleasant vehicle to drive as work vans go. It has very responsive steering and great stability with a tight turning radius, and a very smooth ride that imposes very few bumps and jars. There's respectable power at all engine levels, and the seating is plenty comfortable. The range of technology available is impressive in the cargo van sector, and the cabin remains quite serene.

In many ways it feels more like driving a car than a van, and while nobody will mistake it for a minivan, it still offers quite the ride. It's got a lower ground clearance, making for an easier time getting in and out, and the tall roof makes it easy to stand upright inside. It seems that Ford has thought of everything with this model.
