Nothing Mini About This Van: Ford Transit Attracts Large Families, Outsells Minivans

DEARBORN, Mich., July 29, 2016 – Growing numbers of families are turning to the Ford Transit passenger wagon instead of minivans.

Through June, large families helped drive a 30 percent year-over-year increase in Transit passenger wagon sales. Transit vans outsold every other van in the United States over the first half of 2016, including minivans.

In a new video, Matt and Beth Hoyt of New Richmond, Ohio, explain what convinced them to replace their old minivan with a new, full-size Ford Transit passenger wagon. Among the features the couple highlight are the ability to stand upright to buckle their five children into their car seats, an aisle that lets them walk all the way to the back row, plenty of storage space, an easy-clean vinyl floor, powerful 3.7-liter V6 engine with EPA-estimated fuel economy of 14 mpg city and 18 mpg highway*, driver visibility, and safety features including side curtain airbags.

Ford Transit, America’s best-selling van, is available as a cargo van, passenger wagon, chassis cab and cutaway. The flexible Transit can be ordered with a choice of three roof heights, two wheelbases, three body lengths and three engines, for a total of 64 configurations from Ford’s Kansas City Assembly Plant.

The passenger wagon comes with seating for eight, 10, 12 or 15 passengers. 


*EPA-estimated rating of 14 mpg city, 18 mpg highway and 16 mpg combined is for Transit low- and medium-roof regular-wheelbase wagon. Actual mileage may vary.
