2015 Ford Transit

Ford's 2015 Transit

The all new 2015 Ford Transit will come in three body lengths, two wheelbases, three roof heights, and in van, wagon, chassis-cab, and cutaway variations. It's said to achieve an average of 25% better fuel economy and haul at least 300 lb more than today’s E-Series

It's a 'world' truck, Ford using its 'One Ford' product strategy to meet the needs of Transit customers on six different continents and in 116 markets.

For North America, Transit will eventually replace the E-Series nameplate, first sold in 1961 as the Econoline, North America’s best-selling commercial van for 33 years.

Ford is going from an all-gasoline engine lineup -- two V8s and a V10 -- in the E-Series to offering customers a standard 3.7-liter V6, the same 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine used in the F-150 pickup, or an all-new 3.2-liter Power Stroke five-cylinder diesel option. The 3.7 V6 will be available with a compressed natural gas/liquid propane gas prep kit. Each engine is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission; the vans are rear-wheel drive.

The high-roof Transit features 81 in. of interior cargo height, while the medium roof is 72 in. and the low roof 56 in. high. Cargo volume ranges from 256 to more than 550 cu ft. Transit’s rear cargo doors open 270 degrees.

The Transit van's interior was developed for easy upfit of racks, bins, shelving, and other storage and hauling solutions. The largest passenger version can carry up to 15 people.
