ICE Ford Transit Production Will Continue Into 2030: Report

Back in September 2021, Ford Authority reported that the current-gen Ford Transit wasn’t expected to receive a redesign in the near future, as the automaker has focused its resources into the all-electric E-Transit over the past couple of years. However, The Blue Oval hasn’t forgotten about its best-selling ICE-powered van either, as production of that model will reportedly continue into 2030, according to the latest product roadmap from AutoForecast Solutions.

It’s unclear if and when the ICE-powered Ford Transit will receive a refresh or redesign in the coming years, but this new product roadmap indicates that the van will continue to be built at the Kansas City Assembly plant through August 30th, 2030. The ICE Transit will also reportedly continue to be built on the same platform as the existing model through that date as well.

As for the E-Transit, the next-generation version of the EV van is expected to enter production on February 23rd, 2026 and continue being built until December 21st, 2035. The new E-Transit – like all of FoMoCo’s second-gen all-electric vehicles – will also ride on dedicated underpinnings, in this case the same platform that it will share with the next-gen F-150 Lightning and other full-size trucks, vans, and utility models.

In the meantime, the 2022 Ford Transit introduced a few small changes to the lineup, including the addition of an optional Sync 4 infotainment system, while 2023 marks the debut of the all-new, off-road and upfit-focused Transit Trail. However, in spite of the automaker’s significant investments in electrification, a hybrid powertrain option isn’t in the cards at the moment, as Ford Authority reported last month.

    The Transit needs a quailty upgrade….better rear brakes…rear axles need to be like the old Econolines… you dont have to remove them just to replace rear brakes….cradle under automatic transmission. needs redesigned…so you can have easlier access to service automatic transmission. with out removing front end cradle…..move the capless gas tank fill cap…back to rear of truck…so you dont smell gasoline after fillup…owned 7 Ford Econolines…the T 250 i own has give more problems that all 7 ..Econolines…same driver rear brakes wear out 25,000 or so…the others go 70,000…its a common complaint…had 5 recalls …gumbo shaft at driveshaft…water on air filter, bracket on brakes…shorted wiring on trailer brakes…and engine switch….

    What you are asking for is quality…..good luck with that! Ford is more concerned about gadgets than overall quality. You might want to restore an older econoline than buy a new van.

    I owned a 2015 Transit connect and put 97000 miles on it until it slammed into a bridge by a drunk driver. The driver was not seriously injured but the transit was terminal. I had no issues with the 2.5 6 speed . Just oil changes. I bought a second one and its been trouble free. Ford has a home run with the transit connect. Love it.
