If you own an Elk Grove business that uses a van(s), you have to check out the most versatile and productive business van on the market, the Ford Transit. All Transits are designed with efficiency and productivity front of mind, and there are enough trims to work in any situation.
If you routinely have to transport up to 15 people, the Transit Passenger Van is ideal. If you are a tradesman like a plumber or locksmith, and need a rolling workshop, the Transit Van provides the standup room and stability you need to get the job done. Or if you have a delivery service or just need voluminous cargo space, there’s a Transit Van to fit your needs.
Fit Your Van to Your Business, Not the Other Way Around
Not every business needs the same amount of power, or type of fuel for that matter. The Ford Transit has you covered with three powerful choices. First up is the 3.7L Ti-VCT V6 engine that delivers 275 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Also available are the 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 that has a best-in-class maximum gas torque rating of 400 lb.-ft, and the direct-injected 3.2L Power Stroke® I-5 Diesel. The engines are mated to an improved 8-speed automatic transmission or the 6-Speed Automatic Overdrive with SelectShift® Transmission depending on trim.
The feature that makes this van your van is Ford’s upfitter program that can transform the interior into a customized workspace. The Transit is made in Kansas City, Mo and Ford has 13 upfitter firms, each with different specialties, within 30 miles of the plant. This means quick delivery of the van to the upfitter and fast delivery to you. Check with our sales staff for details.
Your Fleet Manager Will Like the Transit. Your Drivers Will Love It
Your Fleet Manager is responsible for monitoring employee driving habits, tracking when a vehicle is due for service, and determining fuel usage. That’s time consuming. Ford’s optional TELEMATICSTM system provides all that information, automatically freeing up time for other tasks.
The Transit looks huge and it can be intimidating for some drivers. But the fact is the Transit occupies a footprint just slightly larger than an F150 and drives like one as well. Once a driver becomes accustomed to the extra height, driving is a breeze. And the driver’s station is not only efficiently laid out, it’s comfortable as well. Nobody is going to complain about driving a shift in the 2019 Ford Transit.
New Tax Incentive for 2018 Returns
If you are considering buying a vehicle for your business, do it before the end of the year and get a tax break from Uncle Sam. Thanks to the new 2017 IRS Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, investments in new equipment, including qualifying new vehicles, can potentially write off a maximum of the entire purchase cost on their 2018 IRS tax returns. Ford commercial vehicles that qualify for the deduction include Qualifying Ford commercial vehicles such as the F-150 or F-250/350 Super Duty® truck and of course, the Ford Transit, E-Series.
