Just to help you read this easier, here is what each of those configuration abbreviations mean.

MWB LR = Medium wheelbase, low roof
MWB MR = Medium wheelbase, medium roof
LWB LR = Long wheelbase, low roof
LWB MR = Long wheelbase, medium roof
LWB HR = Long wheelbase, high roof
LWB EL HR SRW = Long wheelbase, extended-legth, high roof, single rear wheels
LWB EL HR DRW = Long wheelbase, extended length, high roof, dual rear wheels

You're talking the cargo van though, not the transit wagon, correct? I think the transit wagon interior height is 4.5 inches less.

Maximum Load Lenght seems way off. Difference between long wheelbase and extended has to be over 2 feet.

Load length difference should be about the same as the difference in overall length.

The table above is about right for the LWB EL load length, but too long for the load length of the MWB and LWB models.

According to Ford's site at
2015 Ford Transit | View Interior Specifications | Ford.com
the van cargo load lengths (at floor) are:

MWB is 126 in = 10 ft 6 in
LWB is 143.7 in = 11 ft 11.7 in
LWB, EL is 172.2 in = 14 ft 4.2 in

So are you guys saying that some of the info in this chart isn't quite accurate? Does Ford have other information on their website? Not sure exactly where the info comes from, but I'm also not sure that I completely trust what the manufacturers say about there vehicles as far as specs and measurements go.

Precisely.

The extended van is over two feet longer by virtue that the rear overhang is approximately 28 inches longer, so the cargo length must be approximately that amount longer too. The chart shows a difference of less than 10 inches. Obviously at least one of them has to be wrong.

I think it's the LWB dimension that is off more so, which then makes the MWB dimension wrong also. I wouldn't use any of these cargo lenght dimensions for design purposes, or to base a purchase on.

For what it's worth, when RAM first came out with information on the ProMaster there were lots of errors in specs. It appears these large companies don't place much effort in checking published data for accuracy.

Hello,
We are about to order a "carport" in anticipation of receiving our new Transit.

We are curious about the width with the Long Arm Power Mirrors, as well as the width when both the driver and front passenger doors are opened wide.

Thank you.
