Increasingly popular in the US market, the Ford Transit is a top choice for small cargo van delivery services. The Ford Transit offers models with a long wheelbase versions (130 inch), a regular wheelbase (148 inch), and a long-extended wheelbase (148 inch with a longer body and higher roof). The longer the wheelbase, the more can be hauled. With the regular wheelbase comes better steering.
The Transit has a roof height of 81.5 inches in height- which is taller than its main competitor, the Sprinter, and offers the best cargo van height. Imagine how much more you could fit in this vehicle with this height. There are 3 engines offered for the Ford Transit. For the best gas mileage, there is the Ecoboost V6. For large loads, the best engine is the 3.2-liter turbodiesel 5-cylinder. The 3.7-liter V6 with 266 horsepower is also a good choice.
Another oft-represented cargo van is the RAM ProMaster. This cargo van’s standard engine is a 20-hp 3.6-liter V6. Its interior height is 76 inches matching the Sprinter. With a payload capacity of 4,417 lbs. the ProMaster is an excellent choice for expedited freight shipping.
Expedited freight brokers connect vans with shippers needing hot shot shipping service.
An alternative to using a traditional cargo van is the Sprinter van. The Sprinter, made by Freightliner, Dodge, and Mercedes-Benz, has been the king of the full-size cargo vans for years. The tallest size roof of a Sprinter is 76.4 inches on the inside allowing for 90 cubic feet of cargo space. Until the Ford Transit, the Sprinter was tallest vehicle interior. The Sprinter has a payload capacity of 3,000 lbs. and a 5,000 lbs. towing capacity so you can carry heavier cargo or simply more of the small goods. Regardless of which van is on top, both the Ford Transit and the Sprinter can be just what you are looking for in transporting your goods.
