2020 Ford Transit Press Release

2020 Ford Transit Press Release

2020 Ford Transit Press Release - Together with the 2020 model year come big changes with the Ford Transit van. Compared to the 2019s, the 2020 Transits could have some of new engines, a whole new automatic transmission, and other sorts of goodies baked in. More interestingly for folks in areas with severe weather is available all-wheel drive, which is only paired with the gasoline models. Lastly, there's a whole new configuration for carrying gear and folks, the Crew Van layout. Let's start with powertrains. A number of shall no longer be along with us: the 3.7-liter gasoline V6 along with the 3.2-liter I5 diesel have left, replaced using a 3.5-liter PFDi V6 plus a 2.0-liter EcoBlue turbodiesel, respectively. Some notes regarding the PFDi V6: It's the initial implementation on the 3.5 PFDi in Ford's lineup, along with the PFDi tech itself (which uses both port- and direct-injection) is the subject of case by MIT professors alleging that Ford stole the tech.

Each the previously mentioned screens support the latest SYNC 3 main system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Standard on all Transits is often a FordPass Connect modem offering 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot connectivity for 10 devices, and fleet customers can decide on new Ford Telematics and Ford Data Services—a suite of tools to help optimize fleet efficiency with order-to-delivery status reporting, geofencing with alerts, and key performance indicators. It may even report potential fuel waste and offer coaching to scale back it. Managers might get maintenance reminders and vehicle-health alerts, simplifying the process of scheduling service to maximize uptime.

Engine

Of your current Transit's three engine choices, just one—the twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 with 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque—remains onboard for 2020. The base 3.7-liter V-6 is out with friends, replaced using a 3.5-liter V-6 with both port and direct injection. It's like the 3.3-liter V-6 from the F-150, helping to make 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. (Ford have not yet specified any output, fuel economy, payload, or towing figures, so bear with us.) Shoving aside the diesel inline-five, the 2020 Transit borrows the sequentially turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel inline-four on the overseas Ranger Raptor. Ford confirmed the U.S. version produces the same 211 horsepower and 369 lb-ft, up on the five's 185 hp and 350 lb-ft. All engines pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission (goodbye six-speed) that gives a wider spread for improved fuel economy.

Although Europe received the choice of all-wheel drive on the very beginning, the U.S.-market Transit didn't, but this time it's provided by the two gas engines. The U.S. version, which differs slightly on the Euro AWD, can send about 100 percent of torque to top axle, according to Ford. Unlike the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 4x4—a common full-size van to offer all-wheel drive—the all-wheel-drive Transit maintains the same ride height becasue it is rear-drive brethren. Ford claims the gross vehicle weight rating (the combined weight of your vehicle, occupants, and cargo) reaches 11,000 pounds in case you order the stripped-down chassis-cab model, a boost of 640 pounds.

Interior And Exterior

Inside, the Transit ditches the last-gen-Focus interior design, with myriad angled buttons and small displays, for just a sleeker, more upright look that mirrors that surrounding the 2020 Explorer. Perhaps most obviously is the free-standing 8.0-inch touchscreen running the Sync 3 infotainment system atop a brand-new dashboard, which features a classy (for an advert van) variety of stereo and climate controls. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability come standard, although we're curious how usable these are on the normal 4.0-inch non-touch display.

A brand new 4.2-inch display within a revised instrument panel can be included. Forward automated emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and automatic high-beams at the moment are standard across every trim , while adaptive cruise control , blind-spot monitoring, and automatic parking are optional. Ford claims the grab handles and seat fabrics tend to be durable. The van culture may rejoice at the optional swiveling front seats. Ford says it followed "recreational-vehicle customer requests," which suggests its engineers might easily have visited San Francisco.

The exterior turns into a hexagonal grille that bends at the very center versus creasing inward towards the bumper; the chromed bars have already been reduced from six to three. An open-mesh grille is standard on EcoBoost models for improved cooling, while optional xenon headlights with LED running lamps undoubtedly are a welcome upgrade over halogens. A power-sliding door is on both cargo and passenger models.
