Tom, I see you have a long wheelbase low roof wagon. Does it have dual rear wheels? What seating arrangement do you have? Is this an xl or xlt.
Are you satisfied with the engine? Sorry for all the questions, but this is about what we are looking for.
Don't mind answering questions at all.
Does it have dual rear wheels?
Nope, this is the regular version. 9,000 lb GVWR. Mine was an ex-rental van, picked it up with 24,000 miles for $23K.
What seating arrangement do you have?
12-passenger seating. Three seats in the second and third row, with four across the fourth. There's about 40" of open floor length behind the rear seat for cargo.
Mine is an XLT. Happy with it for the most part, but really wish I could have found one with SYNC. Every XLT I've found has the backup camera, which is great, and mine also had the parking sensors.
Are you satisfied with the engine?
Much more than I thought I would. For a small engine, it does a really great job moving 6,200 lbs of van around. The 6-speed auto does a good job putting the engine where it needs to be, and there's plenty of power available for passing and merging. Takes more revs to do so than the EB would, but it does a fine job. I have the EcoBoost engine in my F150 and would have really liked that engine in the Transit. Unfortunately used EB models were tough to find, and those that were out there were expensive. I test drove a used EB model with 5,000 miles that I really liked...but they wanted $38,000 for it. I saved $15K by going with the base engine, slightly less equipment, and 18,000 more miles. I'm very happy with my choice.
Installed an aftermarket hitch and the factory wiring kit in the last week, very interested in seeing how it tows the boat.
