For over 50 years, full-size van owners in North America have depended on Ford E-Series. The all-new 2015 Transit redefines the commercial van with a new level of efficiency, dependability and functionality. The advantages of the all new Ford Transit over the previous E-Series work van are substantial. First the Transit offers a wider range of cargo capacity choices, including up to 75% more cargo volume on long wheelbase extended-length (LWB EL) Van compared to E-Series. Many of the previous Dodge Sprinter owners will greatly appreciate the new expanded size of the Ford Transit work van. The extended van version of the new Ford Transit offers greater payload capacity. The gross vehicle weight ratings (GVWR) range from 8550 lbs. up to 10,360 lbs. While the maximum payload capacity of up to 4650 lbs., thats 300 to 600 lbs. more payload capacity than
E-Series Vans with the same GVWR. Gresham Ford Fleet is very excited about having a large full size van that even a tall man can stand and walk thru the van from the drivers seat.

The performance and handling of the F-150 is legendary and made possible with its 3.73 electronic-locking rear differential that is available or you can choose the limited (3.55 electronic-locking rear differential is standard). Comfort and convenience was far from overlooked when designing the F-150.
Ford has provided an electronic-locking rear differential on the new F-150 trucks. The electronic-locking rear differential is a low speed traction device, and the 2H and 4H disengage speeds are set considering vehicle stability in low slippery conditions with the system engaged. This is important to many of the Portland area truck buyers because of the mud and rain we endure being Oregonians. When the electronic-locking rear differential is operating at speeds are higher in 4L in order to provide optimum rear traction to the customer at all times. The base F-150 can achieve 60+ mph in 4x4 Low; it is a common misconception that speeds of 60+ mph cannot be achieved in 4x4 Low, but they can. It is up to the driver whether or not they want to go that fast in 4x4 Low
The standard F-150 6-speed automatic transmission is designed and built with the ability to adapt operating calibrations to meet the needs of the driver and to help provide consistent and durable shifts during the life of the vehicle. Most transmission calibration adjustments are made during the first few times the vehicle is driven and that the driver may notice harsher transmission shifts during this time. This is normal and is the way the transmission learns and adapts to the driver’s habits and maintains optimal transmission shift point settings.
We know that Gresham and Portland residents want the F-150 because it gets the job done and makes you comfortable while its doing it. For more information about the F-150 and how it operates feel free to contact and Product Specialist at Gresham Ford, 503-665-0101 or stop by 1999 East Powell Blvd in Gresham.
