Ford Transit-350 Vehicle Information
Anyone whose work days consist of driving through Orlando to do carpet installation or driving through all across the greater Orlando FL area for general contractor jobs is going to know the importance of a commercial van that provides equal amounts of customization, adaptability, and dependability. When people come to Greenway Ford looking for that perfect van, we immediately show them Ford’s new 2018 Transit-350.
As the saying goes, it is what is on the inside that counts. With three different powertrains to choose from, you can tailor the Transit-350’s performance output to suit your work needs. The standard gas engine with the 350 is the 3.7 liter (L) Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) V6 and it is the most suitable engine choice when you will be using your van to haul around an average sized payload on a daily basis. There are two available engine choices: The 3.5 L EcoBoost V6 gas engine and the 3.2 L Power Stroke I-5 Turbo Diesel. The 3.5L engine is well-suited to carrying heavier payloads, while the diesel engine is best for extended periods of highway driving and long periods of idling.
When it comes to a fleet of commercial vehicles, what is on the outside counts as well, particularly when it comes to representing your company or brand. The new Transit-350 is available in 10 different exterior colors. If you would like your fleet to be a little flashier than that of your competitors, you can choose the Exterior and Interior Upgrade packages. Available options like footwell illumination and privacy glass can give you some additional utility as well as some extra flair.
If you are frequently pulling a trailer while working, you will be happy to know that this van is a more than capable hauler. With a maximum Gross Vehicle Weight Restriction of 9,500 pounds (lbs), you can outfit the Transit-350 with the Heavy Duty Trailer Tow package, which gives you trailer wiring provisions and an integrated trailer brake controller (TBC) in order to make sure that signalling and braking while you are pulling work as they should.
Safety is crucial in any work vehicle. Whether you are delivering heavy packages to businesses every day or work as a carpenter out of your van, you will want a Transit that is equipped with state of the art safety features. Ford does not disappoint with its 2018 Transit-350. Standard safety features include three-point seatbelts for all seats, as well as the Safety Canopy System, which gives you additional side-curtain airbags on top of the default airbags. AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control (RSC) is a feature that automatically detects any wheel slippage and adjusts engine torque in response so that you can maintain control of the vehicle. The SOS Post-Crash Alert System will automatically sound the horn and unlock the van’s doors in the event of an accident, both alerting people to the situation and allowing first responders to reach you more quickly.
There are a plethora of other features the new Transit-350 offers to make your days on the job easier more comfortable, and more convenient. Heated front seats, cruise control, and Bluetooth radio are all available options, as is the 6.5-inch color LCD touchscreen located in the center stack. The touchscreen will give you access to the SYNC 3, 911 Assist, and AppLink features and also provides you with two smart-charge USB ports. You can upgrade to three different kinds of mirrors, as well: Power-adjustable (long arm), power-adjustable, heated with turn signal indicators, (long or short arm), and power-folding, heated with turn signal indicators.
The Transit-350 is a van many Orlando FL businesses are choosing to fill their commercial fleet because of how versatile it is. If you want a work van that is dependable and useful for multiple purposes, come to Greenway Ford and lets us introduce you to the new 2018 Transit-350.
