For decades, Ford dominated the commercial van segment with its old E-Series. Introduced for 2015, its all-new Transit replacement carries on the tradition of full-size vans, mainly for commercial applications.

Unlike the E-Series, the Transit van is a modern design, offering plenty of engine choices and tools to give its buyers a more sophisticated vehicle for daily work. The Transit is derived from Ford's European commercial van lineup, with the same model name. Ford also makes a smaller, more carlike Transit Connect model.

What's New for 2016

Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment is available for 2016. So are dual sliding doors on passenger Wagons. All models now include a rearview camera and a front dome lamp with map lights and theater dimming.

Choosing Your Ford Transit 250

The Transit comes in either van or wagon body styles, essentially for commercial or passenger use. While the cargo van comes only in a base trim level, the wagon also is offered in a more feature-packed XLT trim.

A 3.7-liter V6 is standard, making 275 horsepower. Two optional engines are offered: a 3.2-liter five-cylinder turbodiesel that produces 185 horsepower, and a 3.5-liter EcoBoost turbocharged V6 rated at 370 horsepower. Each engine mates with a six-speed automatic transmission.

Transit vans and wagons are available in three roof heights, three lengths, and two rear-door setups, with either hinged side door or a sliding one. In high-roof vans, the cargo area is 81.5 inches tall.

XL Van

The Transit van comes with power windows, locks and short-arm mirrors, as well as a rearview camera, remote keyless entry, vinyl upholstery, tilt/telescopic steering column, overhead and center consoles, two-speaker radio, and 16-inch wheels. Options include dual sliding side doors, long-arm style side mirrors, medium or high-roof body styles, a sliding driver's side door, automatic headlamps, rain-sensing wipers, and rear and side windows. A Power Group delete package can eliminate the standard power amenities for door locks, windows, and mirrors.

XL Wagon

The passenger-carrying Wagon model contains many of the van’s features and options, but also includes side and rear windows, front and rear air conditioning, and an AM/FM radio with six speakers. Seating can be configured for eight, twelve, or fifteen passengers, depending on vehicle length. Long-wheelbase models also offer seating for ten. Privacy glass, trailer prep, remote start, a CD player, navigation, and Ford's SYNC 3 voice control system are among the options.

XLT Wagon

The more luxuriously trimmed XLT model adds such niceties and conveniences as a chrome grille and upgraded exterior trim, cruise control with trip computer, four-inch display screen, carpeted floor, rear dome lamp with map lights for passengers, dual lighted vanity mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, automatic headlights, a CD player and radio with eight speakers, driver's lumbar adjustment and reclining rear seats. Options largely mimic that of the XL Wagon, with the various door, engine and roof combinations also available.

CarsDirect Tip

Most commercial-vehicle buyers will appreciate the ease of maintenance from the traditional 3.7-liter V6 engine, and be satisfied with its performance. Those who plan to haul, or to cover long distances, might opt instead for the diesel or EcoBoost engine. Both options offer considerably more power and flexibility for heavy loads. For carrying people, the base-model XL Wagon has just about all the convenience features most buyers are likely to need.
