Thanks for the heads up. Looks like I've got more researching to do. Haven't heard about this emailed coupon before.

where to find discount coupon

you need to go to ford web site and then to the transit page. At the very bottom is several categories. Select brochures/guides under the Research topic. Fill out the personal information section and then if everything goes right they will almost immediately send you an e-mail with the coupon enclosed. Good luck

I don't see the personal information section to fill out? I guess I'm blind.

Pretty exciting, I'm looking for a good deal to order my new Ford Transit 250 Van 148WB MR.
The plan: camper van conversion
I'm not sure which color I'll choose. Caribou or Lunar sky
Thank everyone for all the information here

Are you restricted from ordering a Transit from a US dealer? Is the attached window sticker what you want to order for your van? If you want a Lunar Sky exterior, 2016 is the last year for that color. It is being dropped and a new color added, White Gold Metallic.

Argh, the anticipation is killing me!

Ryan Matt said usually 7-10 days after build to his lot, it's been nine. Was really hoping it'd show up by today so I could run up and get it tomorrow, have it to play with over the weekend, but no...

Just got an email from Ryan, one or two of my options required installation at a satellite facility after build which held it up another day or two. It is currently at ramp 15 awaiting shipment. He's going to try to get an ETA tomorrow, but of course that means it'll be (at least) next week...

I'm SOOOO close!!!

On the other hand, maybe this is a good thing... Supposed to be storms here all weekend anyway. That'd be just my luck - get the van home and have it hailed on the next day!

Sure is nice working with someone who knows how to get answers (and who to call for them) - a far cry from the people at the first dealership I tried whose answer to EVERYTHING was a shrug and "I dunno..."

My van finally showed up at Matt Ford yesterday, 20 April. Turns out the remote start option adds a couple of days delay as it's installed after the fact.

Made a whirlwind trip today to get it, left at 4AM in a rental and just got home with the new van!

Order placed 25 Jan 2016
Build date 5 Apr 2016
Picked it up 21 Apr 2016

400 miles of driving, so a fine excuse to see what a brand new engine with only 24 miles on it does for gas mileage. Topped off before heading home and recorded the mileage.

First leg was state highways through Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma. Blue Springs, MO to Ponca City, OK. Most of the trip was with light to moderate crosswinds. 289 miles, 19.058 gallons = 15.16 MPG. The computer was slightly optimistic at 16.4 MPG.

Second leg I decided I just wanted to get home! :p Hit I-35, slightly higher speeds but I had a tailwind! 113 miles, 6.481 gallons = 17.44 MPG - and the computer was dead on showing 17.5.

Time to go back to bed!

Hmmm, guess we ought to find out what options cause delays (other than the remote start). Congrats on finally getting it home.
