IIRC FOrd does not sell the mid sized (FWD) Transit in the US, just the smaller Connect and the Full size RWD one, or do you get all Transits?
YTD 2019 its lagging behind 2018 quite badly unless MB decides to push incentives on it then sales leap. Its not advertised at all. So you need to be in the commercial market to know about it. It has to meet a specific need of the buyer give pricing that isn't solved elsewhere.
The Transit Custom isn't sold here so Ford's range goes straight from Transit Connect to Transit. FCA does the same thing. GM has no clue what its doing with its prehistoric vans.
