5 reasons to buy the 2017 Ford Transit 150

1. Modern tech conveniences 

The 2017 Ford Transit 150 has tons of tech to make driving easier and more enjoyable. This year Ford made the rearview camera standard equipment so you can see around the back of the vehicle easier.

2. Loads of body options 

The 2017 Ford Transit 150 features two wheelbase options, 129.9 inches standard and an extended 147.6 inches.

You'll also discover three roof heights: Low measuring at 83.6 inches (cargo height 56.9 inches), Medium measuring at 100.8 inches (cargo height 72 inches), and High measuring at 110.0 inches (cargo height 81.5 inches). With the High option, a person 6.5' tall can stand in the rear space without their head touching the cabin roof. Cargo volumes vary based on wheelbase, length, and roof height selected.

All engine options pair with rear-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission with a manual mode.

A general range for the payload is estimated at 2,740 lbs to 4,560 lbs when properly equipped.
