Take a closer look at the Ford Transit Factory Mid Roof Van by Explorer
For 40 years, Explorer Vans has been building luxurious conversion vans on quality chassis such as the GMC Savana, Chevrolet Express, Mercedes Sprinter and Mercedes Metris. In 2015, Explorer began building on the all-new Ford Transit.
Turns out, Explorer and Ford are a match made in heaven. The combination of Explorer detail and Ford reliability couldn’t be better!
Explorer builds their conversion vans on three Ford Transit models:
- Factory Medium (or Mid) Roof
While the 7 and 9-passenger models are built on Ford Transit 150 chassis, the Factory Mid Roof conversion is built on a Ford Transit 250 chassis. The 7 and 9 passenger models are spacious and provide ample headroom for a comfortable ride, but the Factory Mid Roof Ford Transit takes comfort to the next level with an overall floor to ceiling height of 72 inches.

Why Buy a Ford Transit Mid Roof Conversion Van?
The Medium Roof Ford Transit is a great option if you prefer to “stretch out” and travel with plenty of room.
The Mid Roof model is also a good choice for those with mobility challenges. Wheelchairs, scooters and other speciality equipment can be easily placed or installed with this van’s 63-inch sliding door.
The Mid Roof model is only 18 inches longer than the 7-passenger van, making it ideal for driving around town, parking and practical day-to-day use. All Ford Transit vans are engineered to have a shorter end, allowing for a tighter turning radius and making it incredibly easy to drive despite the space you have.
“Built Ford Tough” couldn’t be more true than with the Ford Transit Factory Medium Roof Conversion. The engine is a 3.5 L Ecoboost V6 for a powerful and smooth drive. With 310 horsepower, you won’t be left in the dust. Towing capacity hits an impressive 5,400 lbs., allowing you to bring along your boat, trailer or other favorite heavyweight items.
The Ford Transit Factory Mid Roof can have as many features as you desire. Standard with all Ford Transit Explorer Vans are:
- 3-way rear sofa with armrests,
- High-low headrest seating
- Window ledges with drink holders
- Center floor console
- 12-volt outlet and USB chargers
