Versions and Powertrain

Two versions of the 2024 Ford Transit Van are offered: Cargo and Passenger. The Cargo Van is offered as a single trim package, while Passenger Van buyers can choose between the XL and XLT. Every Transit Van gets a standard 3.5-liter V6 engine with an output of 275 hp and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. For those seeking additional power, an optional 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 boosts output to 310 hp and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. Both engines have a 10-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and SelectShift as their powertrain partner. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel drive is optional across the board.

Cargo Van

The two-passenger 2024 Ford Transit Cargo Van is available in three wheelbase lengths (regular, long, and extended) and three roof heights (low, medium, and high). The regular wheelbase paired with the low roof offers 246.7 cubic feet of cargo space, while the long wheelbase and low roof increases that to 277.7 cu. ft. The combination of the long wheelbase with the medium roof provides a generous 357.1 cu. ft., which the high roof option brings up to 404.3 cu. ft. The configuration that supplies the most interior volume is the extended wheelbase paired with the high roof, which delivers a vast 487.3 cu. ft.

The ’24 Transit Cargo Van has a 50/50-split hinged rear door that opens 180 degrees with the regular wheelbase and 253 degrees with the longer wheelbases. Some other notable features are a rear recovery hook, automatic halogen headlights, three 12V power outlets, a pair of USB ports, and rain-sensing windshield wipers. To help the driver stay connected, there’s a Bluetooth-compatible 4-inch central display and standard Ford Pro Telematics, a state-of-the-art productivity system that helps streamline business operations for commercial users. Ford also includes these safety technologies: forward collision warning, pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, post-collision braking, lane keeping assist, and automatic high beams.

Passenger Van

The 2024 Ford Transit Passenger Van offers the same flexibility as the Cargo Van in wheelbase and roof configurations. The long wheelbase can accommodate up to 12 passengers, while the extended versions increase passenger capacity to 15.

The standard equipment for the XL mirrors that of the Cargo Van. As the higher trim level, the XLT adds fog lights, wiper-activated headlights, heated and power-folding side mirrors, blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert and trailer coverage, and parking sensors (side and rear). The XLT also gets Ford’s advanced SYNC 4 infotainment system, which features a 12-inch touchscreen, navigation, and voice recognition.

Factory Options and Customization

Ford ensure that both versions of the ’24 Transit Van are highly customizable to accommodate their drivers’ intended use. It can be outfitted with cargo tie-down hooks, heavy-duty flooring, multi-level shelving, and full rear compartment lighting to deck it out as a mobile workstation. If you plan on towing, the ’24 Transit Cargo can be set up with a 4/7-pin connector assembly and rear jumper, a Tow/Haul Drive mode, a robust frame-mounted hitch receiver, and a relay system for backup lights.

On the convenience front, this model is eligible for running boards, remote start, proximity keyless entry, fog lights, wiper-activated headlights, a digital rearview mirror, heated and power-adjustable side mirrors/front seats, push-button ignition, and a larger center console with high-capacity upfitter switches. Some infotainment upgrades are offered as well, including an eight-speaker sound system, SiriusXM satellite radio, and HD Radio. The Transit Van can also be augmented with a selection of advanced driving aids: a 360-degree surround-view camera, blind-spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert and trailer coverage, adaptive cruise control, parking sensors (rear and side), blind-spot assist, and Active Park Assist.

It’s worth mentioning that some of those standalone options are bundled into packages, streamlining the upgrade process and alleviating the hassle of individually selecting each option.
