Ford Transit-150 Vehicle Information
Ford’s reputation for vehicle reliability and utility in its vehicles carries over to its Transit line. With the 2018 Transit-150, Ford has created a cargo van ideal for those who need to be able to haul their tools, material, and equipment to job sites anywhere in Orlando FL.
If a part of your job relies heavily on your van, then it only makes sense that you be able to customize it so that it perfectly suits your needs. Based on your requirements, you can get your Transit-150 in three different lengths: Regular wheelbase (RWB), long wheelbase (LWB), and long wheelbase extended (LWB EL). You can also choose which roof height you would prefer with low roof (LR), medium roof (MR), and high roof (HR) options. D-pillar assist handles and dual sliding side doors are available on both the MR and HR versions to grant you more expedient access to the van’s interior. For even greater utility than what the 150 already offers you, you can opt to get four high-capacity upfitter switches and an enhanced cutoff relay. There are three 12-volt powerpoints that come standard to ensure that no matter where you are going, you will be able to keep all your devices fully charged. A full-size spare wheel and tire are included so that in the event that you get a blowout or a flat on a busy day you can quickly fix that problem.
Part of what makes the Transit such a popular commercial vehicle in Orlando is the fact it is not only ideal for hauling around work-related cargo, but for towing trailers as well. The Transit-150 with LR or MR has a Gross Vehicle Weight Restriction (GVWR) of 8,600 pounds (lbs). To improve its towing capability, there are available options like an integrated Trailer Brake Controller (TBC), as well as provisions for trailer wiring. If towing a trailer for work is an everyday occurrence, getting the Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow package only makes sense.
If you are constantly on the go from job site to job site, it is important that your van is equipped with the best in safety tech. Ford has always made safety a priority in its vehicles, and to that end the Transit-150 comes outfitted with the safety features most necessary for a work vehicle. AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC) is standard, and works by automatically sensing whenever there is wheel slippage and altering the engine’s torque to combat the problem. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) alerts you if any of your tires fall below recommended pressure levels. In addition to the default driver and front-passenger airbags, the Safety Canopy System provides additional side-curtain airbags. All seatbelts in this van are three-point safety belts, offering the best protection in the event of a collision. A rear-view camera, which you can use to see what is behind you while in reverse, rounds out the standard safety features for the Transit-150.
While a work vehicle should always provide you with the best in performance, safety, and utility, it is also important that it represents your company. The 2018 Transit-150 has 10 exterior paint colors you can choose from in order to coordinate with your company’s logo. An exterior upgrade package, along with 16-inch easy-to-clean styled aluminium wheels or DRW alloy forged wheels, give this van’s appearance a little extra flair. You can further tweak the Transit-150’s appearance to your liking by opting for privacy glass.
When it is a part of your job to show up at different work sites on time and ready to go, you need a vehicle that is going to give you 100 percent reliability and functionality. This is why Ford’s Transit line is so popular as commercial vans throughout Orlando FL, and it is also why it is our job at Greenway Ford to help you find the right 2018 Transit-150 to suit your workplace needs.
