Exclamation Large order of Ford Transits for Amazon

Just got a look at over 400 2019 T-250 HR Extended vans (R3X) that are designated as Amazon vans. Got close enough to get a VIN and here is the window sticker from that van.

I made a trip by the lot this AM and got some pictures of the vans. With the high security fence, I could not get close enough to get a picture of the center console. Apparently there is not one there as they placed the keys on a tie ring on the shifter instead of the place where the console might be located.

Looking on the Internet, there is NO mention of Amazon using Ford Transits for delivery vans, only the Mercedes Sprinter. Since we NOW have made this known, let's see what information comes out now about them.

Oh, really? Two years ago the local Amazon delivery guy showed up in a new white T250, LR, Reg Length. He liked it, especially the A/C but only had it a few days.
Los Alamitos CA BTW. Maybe a trial?

Taking the center console allows the driver easier access from/to the right side of the vehicle like other delivery vans.
I do this all the time when I park in my garage since the driver side door can not be opened to exit so I walk through the cab past the console, carefully, and exit on the right side.
I am sure Amazon wanted to also rip out features that are not needed for this type of vehicle use to save weight and increase MPG. In SOCAL here I am starting to see a lot of Amazon Mercedes delivery vans running around.

I saw an Amazon grey van near Ft Lauderdale airport this morning with a Prime logo on the side. The dull grey color got my attention. It was not extended or had extra high roof, so it may have been a Mercedes. I really didnít notice much other than color, which reminded me of this thread.

Garage
They were using plain white Transits in Central Florida for a while, but have switched to gray Sprinters with the logo.
