America’s low-key working force consists of vans. Just like Ford’s supremacy in the pickup truck market, America’s best-selling van is none other than Ford Transit. The 2021 model year receives quite some new things. The Transit is updated with recreational vehicle and parcel delivery option packages.
“With many Americans working from home and practicing social distancing during the pandemic, the popularity of recreational vehicles has soared at the same time package delivery has seen incredible growth… ...Our new 2021 Transit options help people design the recreational vehicles of their dreams and help enable our commercial customers to more efficiently deliver goods and services across the country.” -Tiffany Chang, Ford fleet brand strategy manager
In the latest year sheets, RV shipments were the highest in 40 years accounting 43,035 units, and majority Americans plan to take an RV trip in the next 12 months, according to the RV Industry Association. Which makes the right time to hit the hammer down .
The 2021 Transit will be available with new wheel choices and three new exterior colors. Three new and improved option packages include the updated Transit Motorhome Prep Package for cutaway, the new RV Prep Package for cargo van and a new Adventure Prep Package for cargo or crew van. That’s an interesting way to approach the needs of the customer.

Transit vans for commercial purposes
Design refinements standard for 2021 Transit provide improved access to the cargo compartment. The manual parking brake on the floor by the driver’s seat has been replaced in all Transit vans up to 9,500 pounds with an electronic parking brake. An optional center console with right-side shifter improves walkthrough and improves driver legroom by 7-inch. The Parcel Delivery Package adds 50/50 hinged rear doors featuring a wide 253-degree opening and full interior lighting.
The new Livery Package is ready-made with configuration focused on comfort and style. Available on the XLT, the Package includes 10-way power seats finished in ebony leather seating surfaces for all passengers, power sliding side door, HID headlamps, full privacy glass and 16-inch silver wheels. That’s quite some gear.
2021 Ford Transit Models will be soon available, spec one nicely! Prices are expected to hover in excess of nearly $700 atleast over the standard Transit versions.
