2016 Ford Transit-150 Overview
What's New for 2016
Updates to the 2016 Transit 150 are minor but include some new standard equipment and options. A rearview camera with tow-hitch assist is now standard. The Sync 3 infotainment system replaces the MyFord Touch system as optional equipment. Dual sliding doors are now available, as are auxiliary fuse panels and a single absorbed glass mat battery for additional power requirements.
Choosing Your Ford Transit 150
The number of choices to be made when selecting a new Transit 150 can be a bit daunting for those looking for a simple turnkey solution. Not only can you choose between the commercial van and passenger wagon styles, from there you choose from three engines, three roof heights, three body lengths, and two different rear door and side door setups. The sheer number of possible configurations is impressive, in and of itself, and speaks to the Transit 150’s ability to be customized.
Fortunately, your first choice between commercial van or passenger wagon should be the easiest. The van only comes in a single trim level, while the wagon is offered as a base model or a feature-focused XLT trim.
Then there are three engines to choose from starting with a 3.7-liter V6. It delivers 275 horsepower, 260 pound-feet of torque, and an estimated 14 mpg city/19 mpg highway. Also available are a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 rated at 310 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque, and a turbocharged 3.2-liter five-cylinder diesel capable of 185 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque.
All Transit engines are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift and a tow/haul mode.
If you’re planning on putting of heavy wear and miles on your Transit 150, we recommend stepping up from the 3.7-liter V6 to either the diesel or Ecoboost engine. Both of these powerplants offer better hauling performance and will stand up to harder use, making them well worth the investment.
