Ford Transit 2021: ideal in all conditions
The Ford Transit is the chameleon of the family. Depending on the version you choose, it can be transformed into a commercial van that can be easily converted into a truck because of its rigid structure. It can also be used for mixed transport, offering space for 5 passengers and a generous cargo capacity. But the Transit is also the ideal truck for passenger transportation, providing accommodation for 15 people when properly configured. This incredible versatility, combined with an efficient engine and intelligent all-wheel drive, makes the Ford Transit the best selling commercial pickup in its class.
Economical and efficient
Under the hood of this Ford Transit, you can choose between two different engines. The first is a naturally aspirated 3.5-litre V6. Its 275 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque are transmitted to the wheels through a 10-speed automatic transmission. This is the same gearbox found in the other version, but with 311 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.
This new power is courtesy of a twin-turbo Ecoboost V6 engine with dual overhead camshafts, built-in aluminum for lighter weight. And it happily runs on regular gasoline without compromising performance.
Thus equipped and with the correct configuration, the Transit is a true work companion. It can tow up to 6800 pounds and has a load capacity of 4500 pounds in its most powerful versions.
New layout in 2021
This year, Ford designers decided to maximize the capacity of Ford Transit by offering unique layout packages. Thus, enthusiasts who want to transform their Transit into a country caravan will be able to get the Camping Package as standard. It includes driver assistance features such as a side detection system and adaptive cruise control, and a large-capacity trailer that allows camping enthusiasts to carry bikes or other toys. Inside, driver and passenger seats that manually swivel in four directions are available, as well as an eight-speaker sound system.
More adventurous? The Transit also offers a group of options for enthusiasts, adding a long list of safety accessories paired with the Ecoboost V6 engine. All-wheel drive is obviously a must for this unique package.
Modern and connected
But the Ford Transit is more than just a vehicle. It's also an extension of your device's capabilities, as it's fully compatible with Apple Car Play or Android Auto. A 4 or 8-inch screen and the Sync system allow you to control the entertainment and comfort functions in the dashboard center.
Finally, since the Ford Transit is also a work tool, it features Ford Pass Connect, which gives direct access to the Internet (for a subscription) for 10 connected devices. And fleet managers appreciate the optional Ford Telematics and Ford Data Services, which provide all the information on vehicles on the move.
