Ford Transit provides professional tradesmen and fleet customers with innovative new configurations and leading versatility in an expanding commercial vehicle market.

Ford Transit became the best-selling full-size van in America just six months after it went on sale. For the 2015 model year, Ford has produced more than 100,000 Transit vans and wagons at Kansas City Assembly Plant.

Transit is available in passenger van and wagon versions, in three lengths, three heights and two wheelbases. Now, Transit offers even more versatility by offering dual sliding doors on medium- and high-roof van models.

SYNC® 3 – Ford's new communications and entertainment system – is available for 2016, featuring faster performance, more conversational voice recognition, more intuitive smartphone-like touch screen, and easier-to-understand graphical interface to help Ford customers connect on the road.

A rearview camera is standard on all 2016 van and wagon models, as is a front dome lamp with map lights and theater dimming. New colors are Shadow Black, Magnetic, Race Red and Caribou.

Transit is also available in chassis cab and cutaway body styles, while Transit wagon offers XL and XLT trim levels.

Choice of power2016 Ford Transit
A CNG/propane gaseous engine prep package is available for the 3.7-liter V6 to enable customers to run their vehicles on compressed natural gas or liquid propane. This engine is also engineered for optimal performance with E85 flex-fuel capability.

The 3.2-liter Power Stroke® five-cylinder common-rail turbo diesel – based on Ford's proven global diesel engine architecture – features state-of-the-art fuel, turbo and emissions systems that meet stringent Ú.S. clean diesel standards. ( posted on conceptcarz.com)

For maximum capability, the 3.5-liter EcoBoost® promises to be a trusted workhorse – whether carrying materials to a job site or towing a trailer with Transit's available hitch. This EcoBoost provides best-in-class maximum gasoline engine torque of 400 lb.-ft.

Each engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission for efficient rear-wheel-drive operation.

Most configurations ever


With Transit, the power of choice goes beyond powertrain options to encompass multiple lengths and roof heights to provide full-size van buyers with the precise configuration they require.
The high-roof van features 81.5 inches of interior cargo height – enough headroom for a person 6 feet, 4 inches tall to stand upright in the cargo area. The medium-roof model offers as much as 72 inches of cargo height, while the low-roof model has nearly 57 inches to provide an ideal combination of payload management, upfit readiness and garageability.

When properly equipped, Transit provides up to 487.3 cubic feet of cargo capacity, with rear cargo doors that can open up to 237 degrees for easy loading and unloading.

The interior has been designed for easy upfit of racks, bins, shelving and other cargo storage and hauling solutions. The largest passenger version can carry as many as 15 people, while providing 100.5 cubic feet of storage.

Driving quality

2016 Ford TransitThanks to a power rack-and-pinion setup, Transit provides drivers with an exceptionally communicative steering feel. The front suspension consists of subframe-mounted MacPherson struts and a stabilizer bar for smoother, flatter cornering, while progressive rear leaf springs and heavy-duty gas-charged dampers provide for well-controlled ride quality – regardless of load status.

Minimized operating costs

2016 Ford Transit
Transit's global design delivers on the same customer expectations in 116 markets worldwide where this sturdy commercial vehicle will be available – expectations for versatility, fuel efficiency and low operating costs.
Transit has been developed to be efficient to service and maintain, with specialized technical service support including extended operating hours available at more than 600 Ford Business Preferred Network dealers.

Built Ford Tough

Transit features rugged unibody construction and extensive application of high-strength and boron steel, which has been tested at Ford proving grounds and in the hands of real-world fleet customers in North America.

Transit is assembled at Ford's recently upgraded Kansas City Assembly Plant.
