Max Cargo Volume
When designing your Ford Transit, you’ll have a choice between the 3.5L PFDI V6 engine or the available 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 engine.
The 3.5L EcoBoost® engine includes technology that uses both direct fuel injection and twin turbochargers to keep you moving forward. This fuel-saving method is then paired with an ultra-smooth 10-speed automatic transmission to produce a whopping 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.
Ford figures if you’re on the road as often as you are, you should have access to their available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. The Ford Transit uses this system to distribute the engine’s energy to all four wheels, improving traction when traveling on snowy, slippery, or muddy roadways.
Your vehicle’s handling will be better than ever so you can conquer the miles ahead.
The Ford Transit comes in four different configurations:
The major difference between each of these models is how they divvy up their interiors. For example, it’s no surprise that the cargo-focused models—the Cargo Van and the Crew Van—maximize as much space as possible, creating up to 536.4 cubic feet of cargo volume. These models are great for small or growing businesses that need to transport large amounts of cargo, such as moving boxes, furniture, and other challenging items.
On the other hand, the Transit Passenger Van models focus more on making enough room for your passengers. These models can seat up to 15 people at a time, which is perfect for private rides, tours, shuttles, and much more.
It’s true that the interior of your Ford Transit will depend on the model you choose. However, there are some optional interior features you can find across the entire lineup:
The Ford Transit allows drivers to stay updated on their vehicle’s status directly from their smartphone or computer.
This is all done with Ford Pro™ Telematics, which is complementary software created for drivers to better understand how their vehicle is being used. Drivers can simply download the Ford Pro™ Telematics Drive app onto their smartphone and even complete daily checklists to ensure their vehicle is functioning at peak performance.
The system uses an embedded modem to analyze and report driving information, such as your vehicle’s current odometer reading, oil status, engine hours, and possible recalls. You’ll be notified directly on your phone if your vehicle needs attention, thus saving time.
