Ford Transit: the Perfect Match for Han Solo
Built for businesses small and large, the 2012 Ford Transit van is made to get the job done. While it might not be the most attractive new Ford model in the world, the Transit has the guts and gear to deliver fast, efficient transportation. These characteristics and more make the utility van ideal for companies with a lot on their plates and little time to spare.
Of course, business owners aren't the only go-getters who will eat up all that the Transit has to offer. No, we aren't thinking about families. We aren't even talking about consumers. Who does Jerry's Ford in Alexandria feel would love the Ford Transit? Han Solo of Star Wars.
While this iconic galactic government figure might not be the first person you picture driving a Ford Transit down the bustling streets of Alexandria, a collection of Jalopnik readers thought the car and character were a match made in space. In order to evoke the imaginations of auto enthusiasts, the popular automotive blog asked followers to vote on which vehicle they felt Han Solo would drive if he lived on our earth today. The Transit ranked as the undeniable favorite.
More specifically, readers pointed to the Ford Transit XJ220 as their Han Solo vehicle of choice. As one Jalopnik writer puts it, "Take the ubiquitous European delivery box, shoehorn the running gear from Jaguar's epic supercar underneath and stand back while it blasts itself to the other side of reality."1 A longtime favorite in Europe, and now a hit in the U.S. as well, the Transit demonstrates remarkable performance without all the unnecessary glitz and glam, thus making it a perfect transport machine for Han Solo.
