Did anyone notice that at the end of that first show with the new Transit, that in very small letters on the screen, it said this was a preproduction prototype with options.
So the one we will see in a few weeks might not be the one that was in the first program(s) of the new season

I noticed that as well, explains why he was just able to get one in less than 1 hr (TV tine) Snow has all melted here in SE Michigan
Still, at least for here where we all are "eagle eyes" about everything (good for me/us) we know whats coming.
I would not try driving it through a car wash, looks big (cool)

I sent the store asking what kind of fuel mileage they are getting. I haven't heard back. Todd

I'm a van guy.

I'll bet the pickers have got orders to not say anything in public about their fuel usage

I agree 100% with that comment. Loading that street lamp pole was done on purpose as well.
Still, for us here, It looks very nice,displays its "payload capability, "its a set up"type of display, but good for somebody (us) who want to buy one
The T1N sprinter, somebody @ Sprinter-source contacted them when the van was "bucking/losing power" and had to be towed/flat beded by his bro. w/ F350, got a reply right back: DIRTY DIESEL FUEL FILTER, yes that will do it.

I watch it because 1 I like the show (Pickin)
2 want to buy a Transit
3 Know how TV works

if they got a preproduction model than it was definitely a promotional thing by Ford to have it on that show.

Also they show, get for short time "be a picker" game, in the background is a LWB, MID ROOF, not the super size.
They are not showing enough to get a good look. long enough
