Build & Configure a Ford Transit as Unique as Your Business
One of the most customizable vehicles that Borgman Ford Commercial offers to businesses in West Michigan is easily the New 2017 Ford Transit. Saying that it serves as a utility vehicle or a passenger van is a gross oversimplification, as the choice of three roof heights, three lengths, three engines, two wheelbases, and the sheer number of upfitting options allow it to be dialed right into whatever job you need it to do.
Below, we’ve pre-configured three Ford Transits to suit three distinctly different jobs that need doing around Grand Rapids and West Michigan: a Utility Van, a Shuttle, and a Delivery Van. Scroll down to see some of the features we selected to help you get started:
2017 Ford Transit Utility Van
This type of configuration is ideal for Plumbing, Electrical, Heating & Cooling, Telecom, and more. Here’s what we put together:
2017 Ford Transit Van with medium roof height, 148″ wheelbase and 3.7L V6 Engine – The emphasis here was creating a van that’s large enough and powerful enough to haul all of the tools, parts, and other equipment from one job site to the next.
We added an ABS plastic partition between the cabin and the rear bay and included a lightweight, modular and smart shelving system from Knapheide called ShelfStaxx. They also make handy interchangeable boxes that lock into Shelf Staxx, helping with efficient equipment and tool organization. Hooks, lashing rails, shelf dividers, cable reel and hose holders further customize the space for better productivity. Beyond this, you can add ladder racks, roof racks for things like extra pipes, folding shelves, and more.
2017 Ford Transit Shuttle
Whether you’re providing a shuttle service across town or across the country, the 2017 Ford Transit performs admirably. Here’s how we built this one:
2017 Ford Transit Wagon with tall roof height, 148″ wheelbase with a body length of 264″. This is the largest configuration available for the Ford Transit which allows for up to 14 passengers plus a driver to stand comfortably inside the vehicle. It also provides best-in-class 100.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the last row, side curtain airbags, and standard aisle seating. We also added Ford SYNC 3 for intuitive navigation, connectivity, and entertainment for your passengers.
2017 Ford Transit Cargo Van
If you’re in the business of moving cargo or making deliveries, the 2017 Ford Transit does sterling service with ample space, power, and efficiency. See how we achieved this below:
2017 Ford Transit Van with medium roof height, 148″ wheelbase with a body length of 238″. We equipped the van with the Ford 3.2L Power Stroke Turbo Diesel engine for added power and efficiency and chose the sliding side door for easy loading and unloading.
Adding a partition is a smart move for safety reasons, but it also reduces noise and isolates the climate control to just the cabin. Other handy upfits for cargo include collapsible shelving, non-slip flooring, cargo nets, hanging racks, bins, and more. We also added Ford Telematics by Telogis to help fleet managers monitor logistics, efficiency, and more.
