Future Models

While it will look somewhat identical to the current model, the 2020 North-American Ford Transit will receive a variety of important updates. All-wheel-drive will be offered on the vehicle for the first time since its inception and two new engines will be added to the lineup: the 3.5L Ti-VCT Cyclone V6 and the 2.0L EcoBlue biturbo diesel I4 shared with the European-market Ford Ranger. All engines will be paired to an all-new ten-speed automatic transmission and the interior will be restyled to resemble the 2020 Ford Explorer.


All variants of the current-generation and updated 2020 Ford Transit are currently available for order for fleet and personal use.
