The Ford Transit is a van that can be used for cargo, passengers or a combination of the two. Many businesses have turned to this van for its use as a great hauling machine that is powered by a strong engine, offering a great deal of work ability. The Transit is perfect for making deliveries around town or for being the shuttle van used for airports and hotels to take care of customers and let them ride when the distance to their destination is prohibitive for walking. The Transit can also be a van that is used for a large family or carrying a sports team, making it one of the most versatile vehicles on the road today.
This van offers a wide variety of choices to make when it’s the right vehicle for you and your purpose. This includes a variety of three roof heights to choose from, two different wheel bases, 130 or 148-inches and even the choice between single and dual rear wheels to get the right configuration and support for whatever you are going to haul in this van. The seating can be configured from eight to fifteen passengers and this van offers a choice of three engines to choose from which can give you the power you need.
The three engines you have to select from include a 3.2-liter turbocharged five-cylinder diesel engine, a 3.7-liter naturally aspirated V6, or a 3.5-liter twin turbocharged EcoBoost V6 to offer selections that can be the right fit for your business or personal needs. With the EcoBoost engine installed the power shows up at 310 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque to give you a van that is nearly as powerful as some pickup trucks. Reaching the peak torque only takes 2,250 rpms from the engine, which means you have great low end power when you need it to make hauling whatever is weighing down the van easy to do.
One of the best parts of this van, other than the usefulness and versatility is the visibility. As a cabin over engine style the seating position when you drive is up high and forward enough to allow you to see more from this position than in most other vehicles. This makes maneuvering this large vehicle a breeze in and out of the city where visibility is of the utmost importance to be able to remain safe and drive where needed.
