Does anyone have any photos or information of the rear seating options?

I am interested in the xl/xlt wagon leather/cloth lwb.

Will the seats be comparable to the nissan nvp with integrated seat belts and the ability to configure seats individually or in pairs?

I found the Ford Transit USA brochure online. It could have some info in there. You'd have to sift through the fine print. Definitely possible to get rear seats though.

XLT Wagon seems to come with 5 passenger seating. Not sure if you can add more to the back.

The link to the online brochure is for a Transit Connect. The full size Transit Wagon will have more than 5 passenger seating available.

Look in the Ordering and Purchasing Section. There are a couple of threads there for 2015 Packaging guide and 2015 options list which give some seating details.

I have found it very odd that of the hundreds of photos that are available online of the US ford transit, I have seen a total of zero photos of the interior of the passenger wagon rear seating options. Sure, Ford describes the seating options in terms of total seating capacity, but no photos to see if the seats are easilly moved, or available in 2 seat benches, 3 seat benches, captains chairs, etc....It makes me worry that the passenger wagon is going to be a late release, just as it seems ram promaster seems to have made their "glazed van" not available right now.

Here is the text for "Wagon Seating" from the Ford Website:


"Carrying people in comfort is the specialty of the Transit Wagon. The regular-wheelbase Transit comes in a standard 8- or available 10-passenger model. For commuting applications like carpooling and airport transportation, the Transit Wagon longwheelbase model provides standard 12- or available 15-passenger seating while the long wheelbase with extended body seats 15. Available is a high-roof model that will accommodate someone standing 6-ft./5-in. What’s more, there are a variety of versatile aisle seating configurations available to match your specific needs"


The last sentence seems to imply that there may be some choices as to 2 seat, 3 seat, perhaps center aisle, etc. But I agree that there is nothing specific and no photos.

It sure is weird how there are not many pictures of the interior, weird. They should be showing even more photo's of that than the exterior.

So has anyone been able to confirm if the rear seats on the wagon are easily removable? There is one youtube video that shows what looks like quick release levers on the bottom of the rear seats but then that is a preproduction model.

Somebody posted a link to the owners manual which shows how to remove seats. It is similar to E150 wagon. I think the post was yesterday on this forum.

I asked Admin to put up a sticky thread for this type of thing....:s
I'm only up to page 150 in that Owner's Guide and the only thing I've seen (so far) on removable seats is for the 12 and 15 passenger wagons. I'm looking to buy an 8 passenger regular wheelbase low roof wagon. I'm getting conflicting reports from local Ford dealer on the 8 pass.
I'm hoping someone here has seen one in person, maybe at a Tour event , and can report what they saw.

Does anyone know if or when the crew package, rear bench seat, in the cargo van will become available? I have asked several of local dealers and they all seem to be clueless.
Are there any aftermarket options available for a rear seat?
Thanks

I was in a dealer yesterday and told them I wanted to add a second row or two. They are gonna get back to me. I'm sure the parts dept can order extra seats.
I'm in agreement that most dealers are clueless. Todd

I was able to stand up in the medium roof. I was thinking I would like wagon but I will just beat the inside up hauling stuff. I like the 148" length, plenty of space, but I need the crew style to really meet my needs if I'm gonna have a car payment again.

The wagon floor is higher so with that and a headliner I don't know if I can stand in it. Todd

Your easiest way is have it done buy yourself, crew cab cargo.
I talked with the guys who did the American Pickers Transit. Look @ the Dearborn transit tour thread for the link.
Dealers are clueless-stupid, there product is great, but they DONT KNOW

I picked up their literature but have no idea how their seats and tracks are priced. Looked pretty slick with wheels on the seats etc. The other option is of course aftermarket seats from upfitters like Sportsmobile but I believe the mounting is not really engineered and approved for non-RV use despite looking like real seats and restraints.
