If you’re just starting to consider the different models that are available to you, then the Ford Transit is a great place to start. Let’s take a look at their 15 seat buses for sale, and even if this isn’t quite the vehicle for your needs, you’ll still get a good idea of what you can get from models in the transit range.
The Ford Transit – A Worldwide Icon
Whether you want to buy a used church bus or even a luxury tour bus for sale, the transit is a great platform that you can build on, even if you want custom options.
Ford offers ultra-low emissions from their engines, but they don’t make any compromises when it comes to power delivery. If you’re buying a new bus, then you may even be able to select from some of Ford’s most popular engine options. One of these options is the 3.7L Ti-VCT V6. This variation offers a six-speed selectable automatic transmission with overdrive feature. There’s also a slightly smaller 3.5L EcoBoost V6, which will also be one of your options when you are ordering one of these Ford buses as new.
Great handling on the Transit models is part of what has made them so popular. The long wheelbase can aid in stability, and the front suspension uses independent struts with a heavy duty stabilizer. At the rear, you’ll find the familiar leaf spring layout with gas shock absorbers.
Ask any operator, and they’ll tell you that Ford Transit are some of the best buses to drive, and you will even find this to be true when you are looking for used buses for sale. Even though we are talking about some of the 2017 model features here, it doesn’t mean that you’re going to have to make huge compromises if you choose a used model. Keep in mind that we thoroughly inspect all of our vehicles, so any time that you are buying from Atlantic Bus Sales, you’ll get a well maintained and road worthy bus.
In the case of a recent model used buses, you’ll be hard-pressed to notice a difference between slightly used and brand new models.
How Many Seats Can You Get into a Transit?
The largest production transit features 18 seats, but at this time, the model is only available in Europe. With North American models, you can choose from an 8, 12, or 15 seat configuration when choosing the 2017 model. Driver seats are bucket seats with manual reclining features, and gray cloth is the standard for upholstery in the front and in the passenger section.
The 8 passenger version uses the standard wheelbase from the original transit passenger wagon. The size is similar to what you will see on transit vehicles that are used by local logistics companies, hotels, and other transport services. If you choose the 12 passenger version, it will have a slightly longer wheelbase, and if you choose the 15 passenger version, it will use the longer wheelbase with a slightly extended cabin.
Each model follows the same design principles and they all share similar handling characteristics. Even in the largest 15 seat model, legroom is surprisingly generous, illustrating another reason why the Transit models are loved by commercial operators around the world.
