Ford Transit-250 Vehicle Information
When your job consists of a lot of driving, a lot of hauling, working out of your vehicle, or a mixture of all three, you are not going to want a substandard van for your commercial fleet. It only makes sense to choose a van that is versatile enough to meet all your needs while at the same time being reliable enough to do its job day in and day out. With its new 2018 Transit-250, Ford has made a van that can be perfectly tailored to be your workhorse.
You might be making a lot of stops in one day all over Orlando, or you might be doing a lot of driving through the greater Orlando FL region. Either way, you need a powertrain that is going to give your Transit-250 the power and ability to do what you need it to do. The standard engine for the Transit-250 is the 3.7 liter (L) Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) V6 gas engine, which is ideal if you are going to be hauling an average payload on a daily basis. One of the available engine choices is the 3.5 L EcoBoost V6 gas engine, which is the best choice for heavier cargo. The other available engine is the 3.2 L Power Stroke I-5 Turbo Diesel. The diesel engine is ideal for situations where there is a lot of idling time and a lot of highway driving.
No two jobs are the same, and that is why Ford gives its buyers the opportunity to choose the Transit-250’s length and height. There are three options for length: Regular wheelbase (RWB), long wheelbase (LWB) and long wheelbase extended (LWB EL). For roof height there are also three options: Low roof (LR), medium roof (MR), and high roof (HR). You can blend whatever wheelbase length and roof height you want in order to create the perfect work van. If you are a general contractor who works out of your van but also needs an average amount of storage capacity, the logical combination would be a van with a HR and RWB. If you spend your day delivering packages and are frequently getting in and out of your vehicle, either the LWB or LWB EL with a MR would suit you best. It all comes down to what you need most, and that is what Ford kept in mind when designing the 2018 Transit-250.
Sometimes matters of convenience are just as important as utility, and you can outfit your Transit to offer a number of useful features. Three 12-volt powerpoints come standard so that no matter where you are or how long your work day is, you can keep your devices fully charged. A 60/40 split side cargo door and dual sliding doors (MR and HR only) give you more expedient access to the van’s interior. You can choose from three available types of mirrors: Power-adjustable (long arm only), power-adjustable and heated with turn signal indicators (short or long arm), or power-folding and heated with turn signal indicators (short arm only). Additional available features include four high-capacity upfitter switches, an enhanced cutoff relay, and power or extended length running boards.
The Transit-250 comes with optional tech upgrades that can make your job a little easier. A 6.5-inch color LCD touchscreen in the center stack gives you access to useful features like AppLink, 911 Assist, and SYNC 3. Ford Telematics Fleet tracking system is a cloud-based fleet management tool that helps you to manage vehicles better than ever before. It allows you to increase mobile connectivity between managers and field workers, provide managers with data regarding idle times and emissions for diesel engines, compiles fuel management data, and much, much more.
