Performance Specs

2016 Ford Transit

You can choose three different engines for your 2016 Ford Transit.

       
  • 3.7L V6: Standard power on the 2016 Ford Transit comes from a 3.7L V6 engine with twin independent variable camshaft timing, allowing the van to operate at the best settings for fuel economy and power output. It gets 275 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, and uses sequential multiport electronic fuel delivery for fast response times. The transmission is a six-speed automatic SelectShift with overdrive.
  •    
  • 3.2L V6: For more energy efficiency, choose the 3.5 V6 engine with EcoBoost technology. This powertrain puts out 310 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque and uses direct gasoline injection with dual turbochargers.
  •    
  • 3.2L Straight-Five Diesel: Opt for the 3.2L straight-five diesel engine, which produces 185 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque, to haul heavy loads. It uses high-pressure common rail direct diesel injection, and the engine block is made out of cast-iron for durability.

There are plenty of options to customize the space and size of your 2016 Ford Transit. You can choose from a wagon, which is made for transporting people, or a van, which is made for transporting cargo.

Reviews

2016 Ford Transit

Top auto critics can't say enough good things about the 2016 Ford Transit.

       
  • Edmunds: "Introduced just last year, the Transit breaks from historic norms with its bright and open interior, excellent visibility, comfortable seating and refined ride quality. Make no mistake, this van can still roll up its sleeves and get to work: You can still haul up to 15 passengers or tow up to 7,500 pounds. It's just a whole lot more pleasant to pilot than its predecessors."
  •    
  • Car and Driver: "...for those with transportation needs of epic proportions, there is still no substitute. And right now, the Transit is the van that knocks us out."
