2017 Ford Transit-250 Overview

John Moroney
Automotive Editor - September 20, 2016

Ford dominated the commercial vehicle sphere for decades with its E-Series van. Introduced in 2015, the Transit carries on that tradition with even more choices and configurations to suite every need.

The Transit 250 is Ford’s van version of Old Faithful. While the 150 and 350 can be configured to carry passengers, the 250 only has one thing in mind: work.

What's New for 2017

A standard rear-view camera and For’s Sync 3 entertainment system were added for for 2016. This year sees enhanced LED lighting, a 12-volt power point in the D-pillar, upgraded speakers, and a lower center console for easier access from the cab to the back of the vehicles. A high-capacity electrical system is available that includes a heavy-duty alternator, dual-heavy-duty batteries, and an auxiliary fuse box.

There are three engine choices for 2017:

  • The standard 3.7-liter V6 has 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. CNG/propane readiness is available from the factory, making the base an engine an even more economical choice.
  • The twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost is optional and offers 310 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. The turbos work in sync with direct fuel injection to deliver power beginning at the bottom of the rev range.
  • For extended running times or constant stop-and-go use, Ford offers it inline five-cylinder, 3.2-liter diesel with 185 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. The diesel engine has the nighest towing capability, but is the most expensive. Dual heavy-duty batteries are standard with this option.

All engines are mated to Ford’s six-speed SelectShift transmission which allows fully automatic operation or driver-controlled clutch-less shifting.

Two rear-axle ratios are available: 3.31 or 3.73. Both can be had with either a regular or limited slip differential.


The strength of the Transit 250 is in its configurability. Factory options are many. Interior and exterior upgrade packages abound: the aforementioned high-capacity electrical system; cruise control; keyless entry and remote start; various window configurations; cargo area protection; trailer brake controls; spray-in cargo floor liner; multiple stereo packages; and heated leather seats, to name a few.

Ford also works with many upfitters and the van can be ordered to suit many vocations right from the dealer: contracting, plumbing, HVAC, electrical, and catering. Even an ambulance prep package is available.
