Re: Transit Facelift

I have been wondering when Ford would update the Transit van. I know that CEO Hackett had been talking about the commercial vans at the meeting last month he held and said that there would be all-new Transit van coming soon. I thought he meant that the big Transit would be fully-redesigned but I think he meant all new as in the full lineup of Transit series vans were being refreshed/new. But I'm glad to see the big van getting some revised styling as well as the addition of the 10-speed auto transmission. I wonder if the 3.5L EB V6 will be the 2nd generation version like the 2017 F-150 with the Dual Injection system? I'm sure it will still be detuned as compared to the F-150 for longevity as is the case with engines in commercial vehicles. I'm sure the 3.5L V6 will be replaced with the F-150's 3.3L V6 but detuned. I doubt any changes made to the 3.2L PowerStroke diesel I5 unless for emissions purposes, etc. but surely the 10-speed auto would be applied to that one. We shall all see and I'm looking forward to seeing how it looks and what all it will have.

So fascinated with Ford's EcoBoost technology!!!

Re: Transit Facelift

I'm sure it's mostly substantive updates rather than cosmetic ones. If this is a prototype than it looks like the grille and front bumper are the only visual updates. Interior may get a revised center stack with that floating screen design

Re: Transit Facelift

This has been a great success for Ford. I am seeing lots of these for HVAC and plumbing companies.
I still see the E-Series chasis modified for using as a short bus for retirement centers/adult daycare transport.

New 2-tonne Transit improves productivity for businesses with fuel efficiency improved by up to 7 per cent and advanced new connectivity features

Segment-first diesel mild hybrid (mHEV) powertrain option further improves fuel efficiency by up to 8 per cent in stop-start urban applications

New powertrain offering includes upgraded 2.0-litre EcoBlue diesel with more powerful 185 PS variant, plus efficient new 10-speed automatic transmission for rear-wheel drive models

On-sale from mid-2019, new Transit features smart new front-end design, all-new interior with enhanced stowage, and new driver assistance tech to make working days less stressful

Minor update but I do like the new grille better.

Re: Transit Facelift

This vehicle and the F-Series pick up are the source of almost all Ford´s profits .
