Configure a Transit Cargo Van or Passenger Wagon with the combination of load floor length and height for the cargo volume/payload or passenger capacity you need. The Ford Transit is designed for capability and flexibility - and engineered to Built Ford Tough standards for durability.
Ford Transit has been subjected to seven million customer-equivalent miles of brutal testing in our labs and proving grounds, on roads and highways across America, at temperature extremes from -40 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Our objective was simple: make sure Transit could take on the toughest challenges of strength and dependability.
The Ford Transit is built in Kansas City,* with 12 upfitters located conveniently within 30 miles of the assembly plant. This means fast delivery to the upfitter of your choice to get you back on the job quickly. Transit was also designed for ease of upfitting.
Pick the amount of cargo space you need. The 130-inch wheelbase has a low roof height of 83" and a medium height of 100". Transit 148-inch wheelbase has a low roof height of 83", medium height of 100" and a high roof over 110". If you choose the 148-inch wheel/extended body model, your roof height will be 109".
The Transit Van is designed to maximize cargo space for carrying large volumes and heavy payloads. The Transit Passenger Wagon, with seating from eight to 15, accommodates a broad range of personal and commercial applications. Whether you're an independent owner-operator or the manager of a corporate fleet, it's all about working productively while taking care of the bottom line.
Ford Transit Cargo Van offers multiple configurations from its three available body lengths and three roof heights. Cargo volumes range from 246 cu. ft. (regular wheelbase and low roof) to over 487 cu. ft. (long wheelbase/extended body and high roof). The Transit Van carries heavy loads as with payloads up to 4,560 lbs. as well as ladder racks with a capacity up to 420 lbs. that can be added.
The regular-wheelbase Transit with low or medium roof comes in a standard 8- or available 10-passenger model. The Transit Passenger Wagon long-wheelbase model, available in low, medium or high roof, provides standard 12- or available 15-passenger seating. And there's the long-wheelbase dual-rear-wheel 15-passenger wagon with extended body and high roof, which comes with the industry's first five-row side-curtain airbag and provides best-in-class 100.5 cu. ft. of cargo space behind the last row. Aisle seating is also standard on Transit 10-, 12- and 15-passenger wagons.
The Transit offers a line of three powerful engines designed to meet the challenge of operating at high performance while helping keep costs as low as possible. First is the standard 3.7L Ti-VCT V6 with advanced twin independent variable cam timing. Then there's the available 3.5L EcoBoost® and the proven 3.2L I-5 Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel that combines power plus Built Ford Tough durability and dependability.
The standard 3.7L V6 delivers responsive performance with 275 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Intake and exhaust valves typically have to open and close at a fixed point, compromising performance. But Ti-VCT virtually eliminates this compromise. With its variable control of valve cam timing, Ti-VCT can optimize performance across the entire range of the power band to match the driving condition of the moment. With the 3.7L engine, Ford offers an available CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package for power conversion to compressed natural gas (CNG) or propane autogas.
Every Transit engine gets a 6-speed SelectShift® transmission designed for low-end acceleration and high-end performance. And SelectShift® gives you two modes of operation to choose from: Progressive Range Select lets you toggle on the shift lever to reduce the range of available gears while in Drive. Or choose Full Manual function that lets you pull the shift lever into "M" for manual mode and use the same toggle switch to select the gear desired.
Today, working productively isn't about working hard - your van is engineered to do that. For your part, it's about working smart, every hour of every day. That's why every measure of the Ford Transit work space is carefully designed to maximize efficiency and versatility, making your Transit the ideal tool for any job.
Transit low-roof models come with passenger-side 60/40 hinged cargo doors or optional sliding doors, while the medium- and high-roof models have a standard passenger-side sliding cargo door. If your job calls for working from both sides, dual sliding side cargo doors are available on medium- and high-roof vans. The rear hinged 50/50 cargo doors swing open 180 degrees on the 130-inch wheelbase model and 237 degrees on the 148-inch wheelbase model.
A camera mounted behind the windshield watches road lane markings to determine vehicle position and detect a lane departure. This available feature can operate during the day or night. Lane-keeping alert warns you through a series of steering wheel vibrations, which mimic a rumble strip, should the system detect an unintentional lane departure.
Available Ford Telematics powered by Telogis®* helps track your fleet of Ford vehicle, assisting in everything from real-time vehicle maintenance alerts to routing. A GPS enabled "black box," mounted inside the vehicle, records and processes a host of useful information - from current location, speed and fuel economy to airbag status and oil life remaining. This data is used to create helpful reports and real-time alerts for metrics that are important to your bottom line. The system can monitor driver safety belt usage and real-time diagnostic alerts.** Other functionality includes satellite imagery, geo-fencing and account hierarchies
