The Sprinter front floor board much more room for size 12 feet, and the feet are not behind that the front wheels both sides.
I like the 3.5 motor + 10spd trans for 2020 Transit. but for 2020 Transit all the nanny stuff will be standard.
For me staying Sprinter.

I have 13' bed in my Transit and almost 7' high ceiling, and yeah, it has a cozy cockpit. Feet position has never bothered me. Also it has a turning radius that fits inside of a Sprinter 170 turning radius.
