3/4 Front Glamour 2015 Ford Transit-150

Preview: 2015 Ford Transit

, Senior Automotive Editor - April 21, 2014

In 2014 -- after a career spanning nearly six decades -- the Ford Econoline van will cease production.

Beginning this summer, American buyers will get a taste of Europe's long-lived Transit van. Given its efficient roots, you shouldn't look for V8 power. Ford believes a 3.7-liter V6, a 3.2-liter turbo diesel inline-five, and a 3.5 EcoBoost V6 will suit the work van's needs, and deliver far superior fuel economy.

Buyers can choose between four highly customizable platforms:

  • Transit Van for tradespeople and those with cargo to haul
  • Transit Wagon for transporting up to XX people
  • The Transit Chassis Cab (CC) and Transit Cutaway (CA) for customized applications

The Transit Van and Transit Wagon have three lengths:

  • Regular 130-inch Wheelbase
  • Long 148-inch Wheelbase
  • Long 148-inch Wheelbase with Extended Body

With a few exceptions, they can be paired with one of three roof heights:

  • Low: 83.6 inches
  • Medium: 100.8 inches
  • High: 110 inches

The Transit Chassis Cab and Transit Cutaway have a single roof height of 87.3 inches and three wheelbase options:

  • Regular 138-inch Wheelbase
  • Medium 156-inch Wheelbase
  • Long 178-inch Wheelbase

Prices start just about $30,000.
