Made a trip from Texas to Columbus, OH over the Labor Day weekend. Saw a lot of flat bed trailers with 2 or 3 Transits heading east & northeast on Interstate 71 from Louisville, KY up through Cincinnati to Columbus. OH. All were white except one Ingot Silver wagon.

Scared me for a second, so I ran out and checked.

Nope, mine is still snug under it's canopy up here in Washington state.

I wonder if they were 2016s? Wish I had followed the convoy to the next stop and bought the driver a coffee!!

Transits in Transit

Look like 2016's based on the fact that the left rear corner panels have been stamped for driver side sliding door even though there is no sliding door.....looks like crap IMO.

I have the 60/40 swing out passenger side doors yet the right rear corner panel has been stamped for a sliding door....,looks like crap IMO.

Thumbs down to Ford for doing this cost cutting measure. They didn't do it that way on the E series vans.

Eh, I don't mind. It's a utility vehicle - yes, even the wagon - and this kind of thing is SOP. There are a multitude of cost-saving measures in the modular-euru-world design, and, added up, they do make a difference in what is already plenty expensive. Btw, the 2015s also have the slider groove on the left hand side, even though the left-hand sliders had not yet been offered.

Ahh, didn't realize that. Mine doesn't, so either it's a low roof thing or they didn't start until later 2015 production.
