The 2015 Ford Transit is THE commercial van to own. With a myriad of customizable features and three different sizes and roof heights, the Transit is here to stay. Unlike its smaller sibling, the Transit Connect, the full-size 2015 Transit takes care of serious cargo loading and towing for any application. Check out its features below.
The 2015 Ford Transit redefines the commercial vehicle line by introducing a broad selection of engines, wheelbases and body lengths. Not only is the Ford Transit the best choice for a cargo van out there, but is also the best passenger hauler. With models for up to 15 passengers or up to 172 in. of loading floor, Ford Transit has options for every business.
The Transit Van is the cargo version of the 2015 Transit, and it comes standard with closed-off body panels instead of windows. It is offered in three different wheelbase sizes: 130 in., 148 in., and 172 in. Additionally, to address the needs of different businesses, the van comes in three different roof heights as it can make room for more cargo.
The passenger model, or Transit Wagon, is offered in the same three wheelbase configurations as the cargo van. The regular model (130 in.) offers seating for 8 to 10 passengers with low or medium roof configurations. For other applications such as hotel transportation and commuting, the medium size model (148 in.) accommodates 12 to 15 passengers, and it adds the high roof configuration (109.4 in.). The 2015 Transit Wagon also lets buyers choose and extended 15 passenger model, which adds more room for cargo space and comfort.
The all-new Ford Transit comes standard with a powerful 3.7 V6 which delivers 270 horsepower and 250 lb. of torque. The V6 is coupled with an advanced twin independent variable cam timing valve system that allows for extremely efficient fuel burning. The second gasoline engine option is a V6 EcoBoost, which delivers 310 horsepower and an impressive 400 lb. of torque. In addition to increased power, the EcoBoost model offers incredible fuel efficiency thanks to its direct injection and turbo-charged systems.
We wouldn’t call the new Transit a true workhorse without a diesel option, so f0r 2105 Ford is rolling out a 3.2 Power Stroke I-5 Turbo Diesel engine. The new engine is aimed for long hours of operation and it’s backed by Ford’s dependability and ruggedness.
For drivers wishing to reduce fuel costs, the 3.7 V6 engine offers two additional configurations, a CNG Natural Gas and a LPG Liquid Petroleum. The Gaseous Engine Prep Package also includes hardened exhaust valves and valve seats for improved fuel consumption.
The 2015 Ford Transit is highly customizable as it can be used for any business or industry. Buyers can pick from door configurations, including sliding or cargo doors for both sides as well as high visibility reflective strips. When it comes to windows, Ford offers everything from all-around windows to no cargo windows at all.
Lastly, the 2015 Transit has an available Ford SYNC system, which helps drivers with tasks such as placing calls and getting directions hands free.
