2015 Ford Transit Wagon vs. Its Competition

2015 Ford Transit
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Deputy Editor

The 2015 Ford Transit is an entirely different kind of full-size van, with its uni-body construction and modern interior, and it replaces a Ford E-Series configuration that hasn't changed much since the 1960s.

It stands apart todat from the GMC Savana, which remains an old-style van.

Meanwhile the front-wheel-drive Ram Promaster should be an interesting rival.

And it's the Freightliner Sprinter (yes, formerly the Dodge and Ram Sprinter) that is perhaps closest to the Transit in layout and purpose, with its rear-wheel drive, uni-body layout, multiple layouts, and high towing and hauling capacities.

Quick Specs
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.
