Ford OEM or Husky floor mats?

I like that that the Ford one is split and you can easily take them out and shake them off. Do the two pieces overlap?
Husky looks like it's designed to cover more and and more snug, and it's cheaper now.
Husky seems to have a pattern that is better for brooming things out of the door.

We tried Husky, Weathertech, Smartliner and Ford OEM. We kept the Ford OEM in our van. We noted all our observations here: https://faroutride.com/floor-mats/

Hope this helps,

I just picked up my 2022 van on Wednesday and drove it 2000 miles back to Seattle. It has the Ford OEM liners over carpet. I was not immediately impressed with the fit, but maybe I was expecting too much. I was fidgeting with them the entire trip to get them to lay a little better. They do seem to fit about the same as shown in the photos faroutride provided. And they look better than the photos of the competitors.

Since they are so rubbery and flexible, they may settle a bit over time. We’ll see.

I got the Ford mats from the factory with mine -- they're everything I could want in a floor mat anyways.

From the factory required getting carpet in the front though, and with the faroutride explanation of the tab, I'll update my 2023 order to switch back to vinyl and get the mats separately.

Do you have the front carpet or front vinyl flooring?

If your floor mat is full of small rocks and mud, see what happens when you try to take out the one piece mat and see the mud and rocks flying around as you remove the mat. With the Ford 2 piece mat, you just fold up the passenger mat and take it out. On the driver's side mat, fold the over the hump and part of the driver mat and take it out. Folding the mats keeps the dirt and rocks contained within the mat.

I will try the Husky and will see. I like the coverage that is showing in the faroutride photos and I already have good experience with a Husky liner in another vehicle.

Vinyl.

Let us know what you think when you get them @oleknz ; I'm in the market for liners too and would love more feedback. 🙂
Got the Husky but indeed it's for the carpet and I have vinyl. It also is not for 22' model but something earlier.
It fits well though, looks good. The middle hump is not covered entirely so I ordered a Smartliner (which I think is the same company as Maxliner) which is supposed to be for 2020-2023 models.
Will try that and keep which ever works better.

Update:
I tried 3 different mats. The husky mat (for 2015-2021) and two Maxliner/smartliners. One was for 2015-2019 Transit and the other for 2020-2023.
I liked the look and feel of the Husky mat better (was also the cheapest - reduced price) but the other two have better coverage of the floor, however, the main miss was the fact that it was for carpet only with little spikes on the bottom.
The product was not clearly described on that famous marketplace website we all know. ;-)

So, surprisingly I chose to stick with the 2015-2019 Transit Smartliner and not the most recent 2020-2023 one.
The most recent version fits perfectly especially under the center console but just about everywhere else it's cropped a little compared to the older model. The older one covers more.
The areas that I cared about more was the driver's side under the left foot - less coverage - under both feet actually, and near the ledge facing the doors. The older model goes even over the edge while the newer stops just before. To me it's better to have it covered for cleaner sweeping towards the exterior and also if there is a big spill - if the liquid can't be contained in the mat it will just flow towards the door and outside - unlikely under the mat.
(Such a feature saved my Honda once when I spilled 5 gallons of water from my solar shower bag - pretty much everything poured out of the car through the passenger door while the carpet stayed dry. (it was Weathertech))

The 2015-2019 Smartliner model also has a little extra kick towards the back of the van between the seats and also climbs to cover a little bit of the wheel wells close to the doors which all the other liners don't.

Some photos below.

So, to summarize I went for what I thought was the most practical full coverage with just a little compromise on the perfect fit aesthetics under the center console.
I hope this helps.
