Ford announces new standards, options for 2018 Transit

At the Work Truck Show in Indianapolis Monday, the company says it will move the standard rearview camera on medium- and high-roof models above the rear doors. It will remain next to the license plate on low-roof models.
Ford is moving the standard rearview camera on medium- and high-roof models to above the rear doors.

Transit – which became America’s best-selling commercial van in 2015, and in 2016 became America’s best-selling van, including minivans – will also get a locking glove box as standard equipment next model year, as well as a new rear door exit handle and rear LED cargo lamp switch.
John Scholtes, Ford’s chief program engineer for commercial vehicles says new optional equipment available for model year 2018 includes Heavy-duty cargo area flooring; Heavy-duty rear scuff plate kit; Extended-length running boards; Push-down manual parking brake; Power-folding short-arm heated mirrors with turn signals; AM/FM stereo with audio input jack, microphone and Bluetooth interface; D-pillar assist handles for medium- and high-roof models; Forged alloy dual rear wheel package; and Charcoal leather-trimmed, heated seat package.

That's the big one. I could see many of us wanting to retrofit the new brake, if possible.

Stone Gray new color sounds promising.

Many of those prove Ford is listening to complaints and probably reading the forum.

Which is why 4x4 and crewvan should always be harped on. Never give up. It works.

I wonder if they will make a camera retrofit kit, I would love to move mine up, as it is always dirty in its current location

Agreed, that would be a nice change. On my VW, the camera is hidden behind the emblem when it isn't in use, then pops out when you put the car in reverse. I really like this design because it never gets dirty.
