2016 Ford Transit Van

The 2016 Ford Transit Van lets you choose from a range of configurations for the cargo space you require. Three different weight ratings – the Transit 150, 250, and 350 – provide increasing towing and hauling capabilities. The Transit Van is available with either a standard or a long wheelbase. You can also choose between low, medium, and high roofs. For additional space, check out the extended-length body, which is available atop the long-wheelbase chassis. In the high-roof van, workers up to 6’5” tall can stand upright. Cargo volume varies from model to model. In the smallest Transit Van, you can fill 246.7 cubic feet of cargo space with company equipment. The long-wheelbase, extended-length van maximizes cargo space with 487.3 cubes.

Inside, the Transit Van impresses with its plush passenger accommodations. This isn’t your average work van. Both front seats deliver excellent support for long-term comfort. Modern drivers will appreciate the Transit’s cutting-edge infotainment options. The brand new Sync 3 infotainment system offers sharp graphics and excellent smartphone integration. Use it to make hands-free business calls or stream your favorite tunes.

When it comes to safety, the 2016 Ford Transit Van doesn’t disappoint. The lane-departure warning system alerts you if stray outside the proper lines. The rearview camera helps you guide the Transit Van out of narrow driveways. Rear parking sensors come in handy in cramped parking lots. Standard items like antilock brakes and stability control enhance your authority over weathered roads.

Under the hood, the Transit Van’s 3.7-liter V6 engine makes 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The six-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels. If you prefer diesel power, the turbodiesel, 3.2-liter five-cylinder engine offers 185 horses and 350 pound-feet of torque. Finally, the turbocharged, 3.5-liter V6 engine produces optimal output for maximum towing and hauling capabilities. It generates 310 horses and 400 pound-feet of torque. This engine can be outfitted with the CNG/propane prep package for alternate fuel options.
