If you are looking to expand your business by purchasing your own cargo van, consider the 2017 Ford Transit T250. This versatile, full-size vehicle is capable of carrying large equipment and moving inventory from the factory to the store with ease.
It’s main competitor, the Chevrolet Express, only has a paltry 284.4 cubic feet of storage room compared to the Transit’s cavernous 487.3 cubic feet of space. The T250 trim level is designed with a medium roof and comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission. Powered by a 3.7-liter V6 engine, it puts out 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. According to Edmunds, fuel economy is adequate at 16 mpg combined (14 mpg city/18 mpg highway).
New for this model is the infotainment system known as Sync3, which operates with Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling. Smartphone integration is also included so that occupants can listen to their favorite songs during the ride. Vinyl upholstery makes cleaning the interior a breeze and sliding doors are ideal for an automobile of this size.
