Saw a Bright Yellow DHL High Roof Transit Today

It was coming at me so I had no opportunity to see if it was diesel or gasoline powered, but either way it confirmed to me that Ford is moving into the segment rapidly!

I saw one today too out riding my bike somewhere around Woodward and Square Lake. As I recall you are from around here too, right?

Yeah mine was northbound on Hiller in West Bloomfield Twp. By the time I got to Square Lake and Woodward I was in the typical gridlock and would have had time to get out and talk to the driver!

Single rear wheels despite the long overhang.

hi roof doesn't look so bad in the wagon and/or any window type versions. But the cargo, really shows how ugly a van can be. It just looks plain hideous.

Color is called School Bus Yellow and it is a FLEET ordered color. When I was tracking some T-150 Low Roof Wagons, found a few of these at dealers in the Northwest part of USA. There is a Medium Roof Wagon (10 passenger) at Billingsley Ford in Lawton, OK that was special ordered but still shows in their inventory. It has Privacy Glass so it may not be too much yellow!
