I am very impressed with the engine, drive train and body design of the Transit low roof passenger Wagon. I like the option to have the EcoBoost engine. The major reason I have NOT bought this van is the seating. Ford is late to the party with the "Eurovan" and even after having lots of time to see what Mercedes and Nissan (even Doge Ram) offered they missed on the seating. Ford is still doing the seats bolted to the floor rails like the E series. Nissan has so many easily re-configurable options with their seating modules. You can remove all of the seating and roll it out like the old minivans or arrange the pieces to create aisles or storage where you need it. If Ford offered the seating options of the Nissan NV in the current Transit I would have already bought one. I even shopped conversions but they are not any better for flexibility. Our family of six wants to be able to pick up friends of family and have room for everyone but still be able to clear the deck and haul lumber or boxes from Ikea. I hope Ford improves in this area so I can buy the van I want and need.

Don't, just don't. I've never ridden in such an uncomfortable and horrible vehicle in my life. As the driver, the front seats are decent for short trips but anything more then 4 hours and you will be cursing. The radio controls are confusing and too far away. You have to lean forward to reach them. There's also a tiny tiny tiny screen used for the backup camera. For your passengers..? Your passengers will hate you. There is no leg room. Think of the worst airline that has limited your legroom so they can have an extra row of seats and you have the Ford Transit Van. You try to sit an angle so you can get comfortable but you are either leaning on hard cheap plastic or your legs hit the unforgiving seat belt buckles that stick out and can't be tucked in. Then, there are a couple of cup holders and USB charging ports but they're randomly placed so if you don't get the right seat you just get to stare at the guy next to you and wonder why you've angered the good lord so much that he's put you in this predicament. I actually hate this vehicle and can't understand how Ford engineers could have created such a monstrosity. If a Ford designer ever sees this, you have dramatically failed and should never design another anything again. Please retire, you don't know how to build a vehicle.
we purchased the transit wagon 350 lwb high roof 3.5 ecoboost. with only about 500 mile on it i have been impressed on the mileage, road handling and spaciousness. we are going to change into a semi camper van. it offered the best options at a resonable price point.
