Since this van is offered in many variants, it’s no wonder that it goes in very wide price range. Base model starts at around 30.000 dollars, but better-equipped models with diesel or EcoBoost engine could easily go up 50.000 dollars, which is still less that equally-equipped models such as Sprinter, for example.
