      Obviously there was some road rage happening here. We don't know what happened that led to the motorcyclist doing that. Usually it does not happen for no reason.

      It's true, but a lot of the reason to buy a van is so as to NOT have to tow a trailer! And there is a huge difference in interior volume ...

      I thought the 6.6 Duramax hasn't been available in the vans for the last couple of years.

      As for the above post about durability ... neither the Transit nor the ProMaster have been around long...

      The Renault 4 was far from the first to use this drivetrain layout (Longitudinal engine behind the transaxle, front wheel drive)

      How much do you want to split hairs?

      How much difference from something that looks like "average sedan" (let's say, something that has visual proportions somewhere near those of a Chevy Malibu)...
