Configurations, Trims, and Powertrains

Ford makes the Transit as a Cargo Van with a single trim level and as a Passenger Van with a pair of trims, called XL and XLT. All versions are available with three roof heights: Low (83.6 inches), Medium (100.8 inches), and High (110.1 inches). There’s also a choice of lengths: Regular (130-inch wheelbase), Long (148-inch wheelbase), and Extended (148-inch wheelbase with a longer body). The Transit Van’s maximum cargo volume (behind the first row) varies by configuration: Low Roof up to 277.7 cubic feet, Medium Roof up to 357.1 cubic feet, and High Roof up to 487.3 cubic feet. Numerous Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) options can increase the Transit Van’s capacity to handle more weight.

A 3.5-liter V6 making 275 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque is the standard powerplant for the Ford Transit Van. An optional twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 produces 310 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. Rear-wheel drive is the base drivetrain for the Transit Van. All versions can be upgraded to all-wheel drive. A ten-speed automatic is the sole transmission.

Standard Equipment

The Transit Cargo Van comes with a sliding passenger side door, a 50/50-hinged rear door with a 180-degree opening feature, halogen headlights with automatic on/off, power side mirrors, black-finish bumpers with coordinating side molding, and 16-inch steel wheels. Inside, the Cargo Van gets manual air conditioning, dual vinyl-trimmed front bucket seats, a center console, vinyl floor covering, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a cloth headliner (front area), and a tilt and telescopic steering column.

The Passenger Van in the XL trim adds side-panel and rear windows, a driver-controlled climate system with rear air conditioning and heat, a rearview mirror, a full-length cloth headliner, back compartment lighting, and fabric-trimmed seating. The XLT trim adds a body-color front bumper, fog lights, wiper-activated headlights, high-intensity discharge (HID) headlights, full-length carpeting, heated power side mirrors with integrated turn signals, a large center console, and extra cabin lighting. Transit Vans with the available SYNC 4 infotainment system (see below) also receive automatic climate control.

Seating capacity varies by vehicle length. The Passenger Van with the Regular-length configuration has 10 seats (via four rows), while the Long-length version has 12 seats (also via four rows). The Extended-length Passenger Van adds a fifth row, increasing the capacity to 15 passengers.

Advanced Driver Aids and Safety Systems

All 2023 Ford Transit Vans come with automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assist. Supportive safety equipment includes multiple airbags, anti-lock brakes (ABS), vehicle stability control, traction control, hill start assist, and a rearview monitor. The XLT trim also gets cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, rear parking sensors, and active park assist with reverse braking assist. These upgrades are optional with the XL and Cargo Van. Adaptive cruise control and a surround-view monitor are optional on all Ford Transit Vans.

Infotainment and Connectivity

The base-level infotainment setup in the Transit Cargo Van uses a 4-inch multi-function display with an AM/FM stereo with speakers, Bluetooth, and dual USB ports. Ford’s SYNC 3 system with additional speakers (four total for the Cargo Van and eight total for the Passenger Van) is optional. A 12-inch touchscreen with SYNC 4, connected navigation, SiriusXM satellite radio, and voice recognition is included on the XLT trim and optional on the XL and Cargo Van. All Transit Vans have access to a Wi-Fi hotspot, FordPass Connect (for emergency assistance and vehicle notifications), and Ford Pro Telematics (a fleet management solution).
