Really this should not be a 12k conversion. If Ford put 4x4 into the vans like the F150's get it should be a 5-6K option. Just give us a part time 4x4 option using F150 components.

I am really hoping someone makes a kit for us to buy. Quigley could make a kit to sell. I am not sending or buying a new van with a quigley conversion.

I think the jury is still out on that one, this link just states that the Mustang and the F150 will be getting it. That does not mean the Transit won't...I think it's still anyonee's guess but a 3rd year refresh seems like a typical thing to do for Ford.

this thread is from an unhappy airport shuttle bus company owner, it might be something for you to think about, the ford transit might not be built for Heavy Duty commercial operations. 2015 Ford Transit (warning: worst vehicle purchase)

'member the old days when you could swap components in your own driveway?
'member seeing a Pinto with a V8 taken from an LTD? 'member? 'member when Russia and democrats were friends? And troll dolls, 'member them?
I 'member! I also 'member people swapping auto for manual and vice versa, and different rear ends from different models going in almost seamlessly.

If this were the good ol' days, you could get a wrecked F150 4x4 and drop the drivetrain in your Transit in a weekend. Or maybe even just unbolt the body and put it on the frame of the F150. I wish I had a dollar for every El Camino I saw perched on a Chevy 4x4 chassis over the years! I could probably afford to eat at Panda Express! By myself. With a small drink.

My Dearborn contact told me long ago that the 2019 Transit would be the one with the most changes. That was confirmed somewhat when I did the Super Duty Drive Tour at the American Trucking Show. One of the guys showing the Super Duty demo trucks stated that a lot of the content from the Super Duty would be moved to the Transit, similar to what Ford did when they moved the Super Duty instrument cluster into the Econoline.

This would be at the 5 year point of the Transit introduction and time for the first buyers to look at another vehicle to replace their 2015 model that would have around 60K+ miles or more. Will keep watching to see what goes on with the contacts I have and what changes happen starting with the 2018 model that should be open for orders starting on May 2017.

word on the street is the Bronco may be built on the Transit Chassis. if that comes to pass, then an AWD Transit vans seems like and easy thing to offer.

What chassis? Transit is unibody, no frame.

Well, since Ford so cleverly named two different vehicles Transit and Transit Connect, I don't see why we can't have a Transit Bronco too.
