Full-Size Cargo Van or Passenger Wagon


Always there for the big jobs as well as the little ones.

Because no two businesses are the same

The Ford Transit offers the flexibility to fit any business by offering a cargo van or passenger wagon plus your choice of three roof heights, three lengths and two wheelbases. Also available is the choice of three engines along with a seemingly endless list of upfitting options.


The Ford full-size van delivers the right features to help you get your job done.

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.

Tested and Built Ford Tough®

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.

Ease of Upfitting

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.

*Assembled in the USA with domestic and foreign parts.

Transit Models

The Transit does everything from hauling cargo to transporting people. The Passenger Wagon is available in 8-, 10-, 12- and 15-passenger models. Both van and passenger wagon models are available in three roof heights and three body lengths. Medium- and high-roof vans offer dual side sliding doors.

Wheelbases and Body Lengths

The Transit offers a variety of wheelbases and body lengths to fit your needs, whether you're carrying cargo or transporting people.

The Transit Van comes in three sizes: a 130-inch wheelbase with 126-inch load floor, a 148-inch wheelbase with 143.7-inch load floor and a 148-inch wheelbase/extended body with 172.2-inch load floor.

The Transit Passenger Wagon, with seating from eight to 15, accommodates a broad range of personal and commercial applications.

Power-efficient engines for the cost-conscious consumer.

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.

3.7L Ti-VCT V6

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.

3.5L EcoBoost® V6

Displacing 3.5 liters, this EcoBoost V6 generates 310 horsepower and has a best-inclass* V6/V8 maximum gas torque rating of 400 lb.-ft. What makes this possible is the combination of direct injection and turbocharging. Direct injection (DI) delivers a precise, fine mist of fuel directly into each cylinder, where it's designed to extract as much power as possible from every drop of fuel. Turbochargers provide a surge of responsive power when needed. The 3.5L EcoBoost V6 uses two small turbochargers that spool up to their operating speeds quickly.

3.2L I-5 Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel

Severe-duty applications like courier and transport duty call for an engine to run many hours a day under constant idling and stop-and-go conditions. The answer: the available direct-injected 3.2L Power Stroke® inline I-5 Turbo Diesel. This B20 biodiesel-capable Transit engine option is designed to help give you the right balance of power and performance, plus proven Ford diesel ruggedness and dependability.

6-Speed Automatic Overdrive with SelectShift®

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.

CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package

The 3.7L V6-powered Transit offers an available CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package.* Included are hardened exhaust valves and valve seats for wear resistance and durability for gaseous fuel systems.

*Vehicle will be equipped with the standard factory gasoline fuel system. This package does not include compressed natural gas/propane fuel tanks and lines, etc. See your dealer for details.


Work more efficiently, productively, profitably.

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.

Cargo Door Configurations

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.

Available Lane-Keeping Alert

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.

Modern Interior

While the Transit exterior shows the energy-in-motion influence of the Ford kinetic design, the interior is equally dynamic with available heated seats and driver-focused attitude. The driver's seat is adjustable to several positions, and the steering wheel tilts and telescopes to provide the most comfortable position for any driver. The modern, car-like instrument panel features ergonomic gauges and controls that are easy to read and reach. There's plenty of storage space as well for carrying a wide assortment of items. Optional features shown.

Available High-Capacity Upfitter Switches With High-Spec Interface Connector

It's easy to use add-on systems with these available switches. Four circuits can operate high-power relays for heavy-duty accessories. They're integrated into the instrument panel for fast power access and upfit operation.

Available Window Configurations

The Transit offers a variety of window configurations to meet your needs. Choose the side cargo and rear window configuration-from no windows to windows all around-to suit your job.

Available Ford Telematics™ Powered by Telogis®

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.
