Thumbs down Definite decisions for the 2020 Ford Transit CrewVan package

Got some updated information from the Ford Transit Brand Group today on some definite decisions for the 2020 Ford Transit CrewVan package.

Here is what they have said on these build decisions:

...The 2nd row seat will be a 62" 3 passenger seat....NO other options through the normal order system!

...The 2nd row window will be only available as the 'Fixed Glass' only with Tinted as standard or Privacy Glass optional.

...It will be available in all 3 wheelbases and all 3 heights including the DRW models.

...Bulkhead behind the 2nd row seat will not be available through the Ford Order System and it will be a upfitter addition if you desire. The upfitters do not have anything right now available to fit in that position in the Transit. Only ones available are the ones directly behind the front passenger area.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This may be the case where Matt Ford can make some changes by doing a Fleet designated order. By ordering at least 6 of the same Transit units, we may be able to get 1) the 54" 3 passenger seat, 2) the flip-out 2nd row windows.

That is why I am asking interested buyers who are looking to order a 2020 Ford Transit CrewVan package to place the information they desire on the other related forum thread. These 2 changes may be able to happen through the Fleet order so it would take those 6 or more orders to make it happen!

Is there something we don't know yet or did I miss the announcement of a new wheel base option?

Havis sells rear bulkheads for the Transit, Just an idea.

Snoeks offers a crew cabin design second row bulkhead but it has the seats built in and does not mount like standard bulkhead behind the seats. Olathe Ford had a 2019 250 for sale recently with one of these installed.

This is just the information passed on to me from the Transit Brand Group. Those second row bulkheads have their own seating configuration and not applicable for the CrewVan setup.

As far as the wheelbase designations, they were referring to having it on the 130" WB, 148" WB, and the 148" Extended WB.

Will it be possible to order the Crew without glass in the rear doors?

I spent 5 hours in the second row with the 54” seat and three adults. I could not put the armrest down. Two Guys and a woman. Normal sized

I think the real issue though was leg room.

If you got the swivel seats for the front and had the crew seats they would be uncomfortably close if the faced each other

In the USA, 54 inches is a two person seat.

We are corn fed.
