Last week I had the awesome pleasure of being invited to a closed media event for Ford to check out the upgraded Ford Transit at Golden Gate Fields in Albany, California!
This is really exciting to me because I am just getting my feet wet with auto reviews and stories and everytime I get to check out a new automobile it's like rocking a new pair of shoes!! The Ford Transit is a HUGE automobile!...just look at the engine!
We showed up to the event and learned more about how the transit works and how people and companies are using them.
- People movers
- Cargo Haulers
- Celeb Glam Squad Mobile Offices
We took a fun loop around the parking lot that had been morphed into a driving track and I learned how to operate a car of that size!
I was totally impressed with the way that I was able to hop in and drive the Ford Transit just like a car! My Mom was rolling with me and we decided to go grab some coffee (because who can start the day without Peet's?), yeah we kinda hi-jacked the Ford Transit like Thelma and Louise!
The Ford Transit Drive was Smooth
I could have been driving a little coupe the way that this mega vehicle handled! It was very responsive and people moved out of the way when you put your blinker on!
The technology was good with a full navigation system (it helped us find the coffee shop) and it provided nice a nice luxurious experience for the passengers.
My mom was working and chatting up clients on her cell phone while the wind whipped through my hair back to Golden Gate Fields!
There are so many dimensions and configurations that can be created and personalized for the Ford Transit, just depending on what your personal or professional requirements are!
What I would have made better
My Mom said that the seats could have been a little roomier, especially for long trips.
Overall the Transit was awesome and if you are in the market for a mega vehicle, this is a win for you! I had a blast as I love the overall brand of Ford Motor and what it represents for Americans!
