If you are constantly facing down a hefty dose of driving, a great deal of pulling, a constant deluge of working out of your vehicle, or all of the above, then you need a van that can truly keep up with your heavy workload and bring significant improvement to your vehicle workforce. Fortunately, the new 2018 Transit-250 from Ford is a van that is more than capable of giving you the power, performance, and durability needed to get the job done right the first time.
Regardless of whether your work keeps you moving from job site to job site within Bismarck or you end up traveling all over the state, odds are that you require a powertrain that is ready and willing to handle even the toughest of workloads. Of course, Ford understands this, which is why the standard motor for the Transit-250 is the 3.7 liter (L) Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) V6 gas motor, which is perfect for most regular daily work routines. On the other hand, the 3.5 L EcoBoost V6 gas motor serves as the best decision for heavier freight and continued payload hauling. Finally, the 3.2 L Power Stroke I-5 Turbo Diesel is a powerful diesel engine that excels on days when you spend a ton of time on the highway or idling during load and unload stops.
The truth of the matter is that no two jobs require the same exact vehicle, so Ford is giving Transit-250 owners the chance to pick between multiple vehicle lengths and body sizes. In total, there are three length options to consider: Regular wheelbase (RWB), long wheelbase (LWB) and long wheelbase broadened (LWB EL). For rooftop sizing considerations, there are likewise three choices: Low rooftop (LR), medium rooftop (MR), and high rooftop (HR). You can mix and match wheelbase lengths and rooftop heights in order to craft the ideal work van for your workforce.
For those who work out of their vans, yet still need ample storage room and freight hauling capabilities, it is hard to go wrong with a HR and RWB configuration. In the event that you spend your day moving packages all over Bismarck and spend a ton of time getting in and out of your Transit, either the LWB or LWB EL with a MR would most likely suit you best. Everything comes down to what you require from you work van, and Ford clearly kept this in mind when laying out the blueprint for the class-leading 2018 Transit-250.
Three 12-volt power outlets come standard across all Transit-250 models, so regardless of where you are or how long your work day runs, you can keep your gadgets completely charged and powered up until the job is done. A 60/40 split side freight entryway and double sliding entryways (found specifically on the MR and HR) give you easy and convenient access to the Transit's interior cargo area. As for mirrors, you have three options on this front: Power-adjustable (found exclusively within the long arm), power-adjustable with heated turn signals (short or long arm), and finally foldable and heated turn signals (exclusively short arm). As far as other added features go, four high-capacity upfitter switches, an upgraded cutoff relay, and extended length running boards are all on the menu.
If that was not enough, the Transit-250 also offers up a series of tech overhauls that can make your daily routine considerably easier and less demanding. A 6.5-inch LCD touchscreen in the Transit-250's center console gives you direct access to powerful tech amenities, like AppLink, 911 Assist, and SYNC 3. Ford's Telematics Fleet tools serve as a cloud-based administrative aid that encourages you to oversee your company's entire fleet of vehicles from a completely new analytics perspective. It also enables you to build increased connectivity among crew leaders and other employees and furnish administrators with information that tracks diesel motor emissions and idle times, among other things.
