What large, front-wheel drive van would you recommend?

Large vans all have their issues. What large, front-wheel drive van would you recommend? I already own a Ford Transit so something different please.

Volkswagen has recently launched an all-new version of the Crafter: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/volkswagen/craft.../ The new Crafter is available with front-wheel or rear-wheel drive and is a huge improvement over the old version, which was built by Mercedes-Benz. Alternatively there is the impressive Iveco Daily: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/iveco/daily-2014/
