At a special Go Further with Ford program in Amsterdam, Ford unveiled its new generation of Transit commercial vehicles, developed on all-new global platforms for sale in Europe, North America and other worldwide markets.
We were there along with 2,500 dealers and journalists from across Europe, and we spent a few minutes with Chris Brewer, Ford Commercial Vehicle Engineer, to get an introduction to these new vehicles.
The stylish all-new Ford Transit Connect will deliver new load-carrying ability, low cost of ownership and dependability standards for its segment.
The tough, functional and professional, new Ford Transit brings new levels of capability and versatility to the medium commercial van market. In North America, customers can choose from several engines, including the proven 3.5-liter EcoBoost™ V-6 or a powerful diesel option; each features rear-wheel drive and are expected to achieve at least 25-percent better fuel economy than a comparable E-Series. Multiple roof heights and wheelbases will be available. North American Transit vans will be manufactured in Kansas City, alongside the Ford F-150.
The Ford Transit brand has established a strong reputation for toughness and dependability, and the new global Transit products have been engineered to extend that tradition. Both the all-new Transit and all-new Transit Connect have been subjected to Ford ultra-stringent commercial vehicle testing and durability standards.
