Build your own is buggy and is missing a lot of options such as limited slip rear,short arm heated mirrors, remote start, additional keys etc. At this point the nadaguides.com site is more complete. Configuration gave 3.5 turbo engine when 3.7 non-turbo was selected. Also missing two colors. Maybe they purposely do not show "late" options.

It is a start and expect it to be corrected/improved fairly soon.

I could not get it to work properly myself: trailer hitch, back up camera, 270 deg. rear doors, rear door windows etc...
I would think that I will have to order and get what I want.
Good to see that things are happening on the line, will drive what ever I can get my hands on (for reference) 100% will buy one, I think the Econoline guys will like as soon as they get a taste.

Still gives me a decent idea of what mine will cost... somewhere in the 44,000-45,000 range.

Long wheelbase high roof extended 350 dually, 3.5 ecoboost, tow package, interior upgrade, cruise control, 220a alternator, dual battery setup, aux switches, alarm, all the airbags, premium paint, rear view camera, and a probably a few other things I forget right now.

Net Price $44,120.

Add spare keys and a few other things not shown on the website, and hopefully by the time I get around to actually buying one (likely next summer, so 1 year~ after release) I can get it for 40,000-$41,000 out the door.

There are so many options for the Ford Transit. I think that I'll take this as a guide but in the end I am going to ask the dealer for some help in making sense of all of the different options that are available.

hey buckwheat and you other snow country folks,
we're very curious how the rear wheel drive Transit will work in snow (properly loaded of course) once you can get your hands on one. We've watched the winter test and endurance run video and that suggests 4WD is really only something for off-roading. They suggested the Transit kept right on getting down (or up) the road in fairly heavy snow. come to think of it the road was pretty flat...maybe that was the secret.

I cannot find the drivers side sliding door option.

Is that only visible in certain configurations? I tried a few, no luck...
