The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating Read Our Full Review Read Our Full Review
TCC's Bottom Line The 2015 Ford Transit is dramatically different than its long-running E-Series predecessor; it should provide more box-on-wheels goodness and flexibility, with more comfort, fuel-efficiency, and safety. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter now offers 4x4 for improved all-weather and all-terrain ability, building on its proven strengths as a flexible business vehicle.
