Just recently Senior Editor Candace Roulo and Editor at Large John Mesenbrink attended the Ford EcoBoost Challenge, in Arlington Heights, Ill., where they had the chance to drive the Ford F-150 and see some of Ford’s new 2015 vehicle models, including the 2015 Transit Connect, which is a popular vehicle amongst contractors.

While at the event, Ramzi Kort, assistant brand manager – Transit Connect, talked with the media about the new 2015 Transit full-size van. This new van was not on display at the EcoBoost Challenge, but Fleet Owner magazine’s Senior Editor Sean Kilcarr had the opportunity to test drive the vehicle in Kansas City, Mo.

For Motor Co.'s new 2015 Transit full-size van is already in production and is expected to be available in dealerships starting this summer. Fleet Owner Senior Editor Sean Kilcarr got invited along with other journalists to test drive the new Transit in Kansas City, Mo., earlier in June on an improvised closed-course track as well as on local streets and nearby highways.

The 2015 Transit full-size van has many features that will make contractors comfortable while on the road, at a jobsite or on a service call. View the Test Driving Ford's 2015 Transit Van photo gallery above.
