Why the Ford Transit Skyliner Concept matters:
by Aaron Gold
Vans are big business for Ford. The decades-old E-Series van dominates the commercial market, but Ford is about to replace it with a something completely different: The European-developed Transit. The purpose of the Transit Skyliner Concept is to show what's possible with this new format of van. Outfitted like a road-going private jet, the Transit Skyliner Concept seats four very lucky people and provides them with reclining first-class seats, a full bar, and the mother of all mobile entertainment systems -- and the whole setup fits neatly inside a stock Transit body shell.
