Wonder about the emergency brake?

So I hope in the walk thru you won't be tripping over the e-brake!

From that pic, it looks like our friends in the UK have a two-person passenger seat. That would be a nice option to have with a middle section that could flip up.

The cargo we carry makes walk-thru useless.

The middle section does not flip up.

Looks like no passenger air bags either.

I'd like to have one of those double seats though. My F150 had a middle seat in my front bench. The back folded forward and gave you a really nice arm rest. That was a great option. But they have to cut costs to offer a van for 35 K. Still cannot believe I have to turn on my headlights.. Auto lights an option. My 05 XLT had them standard!

Depends which spec you get, there is an airbag for both front passengers on the euro spec.

6 speed manual trans

I've got one! I'm a retired US Marine living down in Mexico. Just bought a 2010 Ford Transit 9 passenger van with 40,000 miles on it (67,000 kilometres). Comes with a 2.2 TDI, 6 speed manual transmission, 115 HP (newer ones have 125). Just got done driving in up to Houston TX. Mine is the FWD model, gets around 30 mpg in town, and highway just depends on how fast you want to drive. At 55mph, I can get around 40mpg, but once you start cruising at 70-75mph, the mileage drops to 25-29, bit less if fully loaded. So far I love it, but I am thinking you will never get them up in the USA, not sure of the reason though, maybe emissions, or maybe because not enough people like manual transmissions. Mine is a T300, which means it is a 3 ton van, so it can be loaded. Comes with 15" tires that look too small, but runs great. Maybe one day Ford will allow the US customers to get them
