  • 3.5L EcoBoost V6: Utilizing both turbocharging and direct injection technology, the available EcoBoost can put drivers in control of 310 horsepower and a magnificently impressive 400 lb-ft of torque.
  • 3.2L I5 Diesel: While still delivering 185 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, the optional diesel engine lowers emissions and ensures that you never spend too much time or money at the pump.

Interior Space and Versatility

2016 Ford Transit Extended Lenght Wagon carries people and cargoThe 2016 Ford Transit is one of the most versatile commercial vehicles currently available for Chicago and Manteno drivers.

Cargo van and wagon models are available with three roof heights – low, medium, and high – with the high option able to accommodate passengers standing up to 6 ft. 5 in. – perfect for situations in which you need to work within the vehicle for long periods. There are also three body lengths (regular, long, long/extended length), so you can perfectly personalize your own level of interior space.

Finally, choose between cargo van and wagon options. The former is all about cargo carrying. The regular wheelbase with low roof option allows for a nimble drive, but still provides up to 246.7 cu. ft. of storage space, while a long wheelbase model with high roof can take up to 487.3 cu. ft. The wagon proves more advantageous for people-carrying, with 8, 10, 12, and 15 passenger seating options.

Optional Features

Other optional features include:

  • Ford Telematics System: Powered by Telogis, this system helps you keep track of your fleet. A GPS-enabled “black box” provides information concerning current location, speed, fuel economy, airbag status, and oil life remaining.
  • Lane Keeping Alert System: A camera mounted behind the windshield monitors the Transit’s position on the road. If a lane change is detected without anyone indicating, steering wheel vibrations will provide an alert, day or night.
