Expert Rating

4.2 (Excellent)
MPG
City / Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Choosing Your Ford Transit 350

The Transit 350 can be ordered as either a cargo/work or passenger van in a variety of configurations that include:

  • Two wheelbases
  • Three body lengths
  • Three roof heights
  • Three engine choices

The Van XL is the base cargo/work option, and the XL and XLT Passenger Wagons are the people carriers.

  • The base engine is a capable 3.7-liter V6 with 275 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. A CNG/propane prep package is an available from the factory.
  • The 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost is available, making 310 horsepower and an extraordinary 400 pound-feet of torque. Direct fuel injection works in sync with the turbos to ensure smooth power delivery across the rev range.
  • For heavy-duty applications, Ford offers a 3.2-liter inline five-cylinder diesel. It makes 185 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, and provides plenty of grunt for towing, extended running time and constant stop-and-go driving.

All engines are mated to Ford’s six-speed SelectShift transmission that allows either automatic operation or clutch-less manual shifting.

Axle ratios can be specified when ordering depending on application, as can dual rear wheels for heavier carrying capacities.

Van XL

The base model Transit 350 is a very capable work or cargo van. High-capacity electrical systems are available, as are a spray-in cargo floor liner, heavy-duty dual batteries, a back-up alarm, power retractable mirrors, and interior and exterior upgrade packages. Ford also works with many upfitters; the 350 can be ordered ready to go for vocations such as contracting, electrical, HVAC, and catering, among others. Even an ambulance package is available. and cruise control.

XL Passenger Wagon

The base passenger wagon will seat up to eight with the standard wheelbase, or up to 15 with the long wheelbase and extended body. Available creature comforts include carpet and headliners, heated power seats, auxiliary heater and air conditioning, satellite radio, running boards, and flip-open glass for rear passengers.

XLT Passenger Wagon

Moving up to the XLT Passenger Wagon builds on the amenities of the XL. Front and rear air conditioning is standard, as is cruise control, keyless entry, illuminated vanity mirrors, passenger grab handles, rain-sensing wipers, and an eight-speaker audio system.

CarsDirect Tip

Some folks will shy away from the Transit 350 for lack of an available V8, but the optional EcoBoost engine offers more power and torque at much greater efficiency than almost all older engines, even those with much greater displacement. For example, a 1997-2004 6.8-liter Triton V10 only made around 305 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque, depending on year, and required boatloads more fuel to run.
