“Kevin was involved throughout the whole process of customizing his Transit. Kevin chose to go with a Two Tone Dark Charcoal leather seating with Stone inserts & the Manor Oak floor,” Bastian said. Ford has not announced an official timetable as to the availability of OEM-installed leather seating on Ford Transits.
Two of the primary color combinations that Towne has in inventory are dark charcoal leather seats with a (brownish) Harvest Maple floor, and dark charcoal/stone two-tone leather seats and interior with a Manor Oak (dark gray) floor. The floors all feature PVC non-slip material. Depending on the options available for leather seating, the upfitted Transits start from $50,200.
