| It’s the end of an era in some respects, as the vehicle that’s given Ford 35 years of market leadership is changing. The Ford Transit will be taking over from the E-Series, but it’s by no means an unknown. This is because the Transit has led the global van market since 1965 when it was first introduced in Europe.
What the new Transit brings is hug elements of flexibility, capability, and efficiency. Engines include 3.&L Ti-VCT V6, 3.5L Ecoboost V6, and 3.2L Power Stroke I-5 Diesel. The fuel efficiency of the EcoBoost engine will be of particular appeal for commercial users travelling from job to job around this Houston area to help keep costs in check.
Where Ford’s Transit really extends the performance of the E-Series is the greater cargo carrying capability. The Transit van has three length options, and three roof options.
Taller – Interior heights of 56.9” (low roof), 72” (medium roof), or 81.5” (high roof) vs. 55.3” for all E-Series vans.
Longer – cargo length at floor of 126”, 143”, or 172” vs. 122” or 142” for E-Series.
Wider – cargo width between wheel houses of 54.8” vs. 52.5” for E-Series.
Altogether, the Transit van can offer 75% more maxium cargo volume versus the E-Series!
