Overview

The Ford Transit full-size van offers versatility that few vehicles can match. It comes in three body lengths (Regular, Long, Long Extended), three roof heights and two wheelbases. High-roof models can accommodate a standing adult up to 6 feet, 4 inches tall and it's possible to build a Transit with 487 cubic feet of cargo capacity -- that's almost 80 percent more volume than the largest Econoline van. All vans and wagons feature either side cargo or sliding doors, as well as rear cargo doors that open up to 270 degrees and passenger capacity when properly equipped ranges from 8 to 15. Such flexibility ensures there is a Transit for every need. Even the shortest, lowest, smallest Transit is slightly larger than the Econoline it replaces. Three engines are offered. The base engine is a 3.7L V6 that makes 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The engine is E85 capable and can also be fitted with a kit that allows it to run off of compressed natural gas or liquid propane. For more power, Ford offers the 3.5L EcoBoost V6. Also found in the F-150 pickup, the turbocharged unit produces 310 horsepower and best-in-class 400 pound-feet of torque. Both V6s offer similar fuel efficiency, with a combined 16 mpg in regular-wheelbase Transit passenger vans. Finally, the turbocharged 3.2L inline-5 Power Stroke diesel generates 185 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque -- 90 percent of which is available starting at 1,500 rpm. All three engines are mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift, which allows for manual shifting when needed. All Transits are rear-wheel drive, and some models offer a dual-rear-wheel option. Power rack-and-pinion steering is paired with front MacPherson struts and a stabilizer bar, as well as progressive rear leaf springs and gas-charged dampers, which results in relatively flat cornering, a smooth ride and ease of maneuverability. Standard features on the Transit Van include 16-inch steel wheels, tilt/telescopic steering, front air conditioning, vinyl seats, power windows, mirrors and locks and a 2-speaker stereo. Optional equipment includes alloy wheels, a heavy-duty tow package, and extended outside mirrors. Inside, cruise control, a rearview camera, a cargo-area spray liner, MyFord Touch infotainment and navigation and rear air conditioning are all available. All Transits come standard with front and front side-impact airbags, anti-lock brakes, and stability control.
