Transit is one of the most exciting vans of all time. It is the third best-selling model of all time in this segment. With over 8 million copies sold in 20 years, the future of the van is certain. The latest spy shots of the 2019 Ford Transit are confirming that company is working on the redesign. So, in near future, we will see it completely, without camouflage.
In the USA, based on this model, we now have different series of trucks. Some of them are using the same name, like Transit Connect and Transit Passenger Wagon. But, most of vehicles that sells are cargo vans. The 2019 Ford Transit will be popular because of its practical design and features. Also, handling of the big vehicle is very easy, and it is another reason why drivers are choosing Transit over some other models.
2019 Ford Transit specs
Under the hood of the 2019 Ford Transit we will find petrol or diesel engine. Buyers will choose between two gas units in the offer for next van. The base drivetrain is a 3.7-liter V-6 mill. It can produce 275 horses and 260 lb-ft of torque. Besides petrol, this engine can also use a natural gas to make energy of it. It pairs a six-speed automatic transmission to send power to rear wheels.
Other option is twin-turbo V-6. This 3.5-liter engine can deliver 310 horses and 400 lb-ft of torque. Also, it returns better fuel economy and tows more than the base unit. With turbo-six engine, the 2019 Ford Transit has a towing capacity of 7,500 pounds. For the new van, this engine could get a new transmission. A 10-speed will replace the old one, six-pace gearbox.

The last, but not the least important is a 2019 Ford Transit diesel model. This version benefits from a 3.2-liter inline-five powertrain. With it, towing capacity drops to 4,800 pounds. Unlike the turbo unit, the diesel engine is also mated to a six-speed transmission. Estimations on fuel economy say it will give a boost for the next edition. Total power will remain 185 hp, and torque at 350 lb-ft.
