Didn't they make a smartfortwo sport car 98 horsepower with a supercharger haha

Perhaps, conversely, ford is trying to broaden the SSV fleet badge in other places by temporarily reassociating the badge, then selling it as the same thing. What use would be the use of using the same name twice within the same brand? It is

Zachary it's just a name that's all relax kid. Check out motorhomes alot of them say sport or rally. Just means it's probably fully loaded.

Then everyone us wring because if you look it up everyone calls it the SuperSportVan - remember this is UK who do not have the Expedition and it does say SuperSportVan on it too - maybe SSV is used in Ford elsewhere differently?

The writer of the article is wrong SSV stands for Special Service Vehicle which is used for higher performance fleet vehicle packages. They have an Expedition SSV also which is designed for police.

Zach, do you realize how few production cars can run a 10 second quarter?

Aero package, about as aerodynamic as a freaking wall!

What about the torque? That's what I want to know

Transits are a freaking workhorse though so I would not worry, they keep going for years and years.

Corvette, viper, cts-v, Devon gtx. They can all corner well from the factory

Ehh American cars can only handle straight lines "factory"
Simon Trépanier Apr 15, 2011
Don't forget that It's a diesel so max hp is reached is the lower RPMs and it got high torque! Did you drive a common rail diesel recentry?
Vincent Butler Apr 15, 2011
What I don't understand KP. You can pretty much say anything about Japan's cars. But once someone says anything about american cars. You cry like a little bitch(Female Dog) shit gets annoying.

I'd love to have one of the V8 Astro vans. :-)
Ian Richard Hendry Apr 15, 2011
There have been cooler Transits. I'm thinking of the Cosworth DFV F1 engined Transit of the 1980s.
Joel Hayes Apr 15, 2011
Nah the jaguar V8 transit van on Top Gear is the best.
