The New Transit is engineered to be more powerful, more efficient and more responsive. A range of advanced engines let you tailor your Transit to your exact requirements. A new 10-speed automatic transmission ensures you’re always in the right gear for the road and the job. And a range of technologies, including Auto Start/Stop and Acceleration Control help maximise fuel efficiency whilst reducing emissions.
When you stop at traffic lights or your vehicle is idling in a queue, this technology can automatically switch off the engine. When you're ready to move, just depress the clutch and select first gear as usual, or release the brake on an automatic, and the system restarts. Auto Start-Stop is particularly effective in town and city streets, where it can cut fuel consumption by up to 10%.
With an advanced new 10-speed automatic transmission, the New Transit delivers rewarding acceleration as well as outstanding fuel efficiency. It uses real-time adaptive shift-scheduling too, which enables the transmission to effortlessly adapt to changing conditions. So, whether you’re cruising on the motorway or tackling difficult off-road terrain, you’ll always be in the right gear at the right time.
The New Transit is equipped with a 6-speed manual transmission, making it more economical and efficient. Once you reach a high enough speed, just slip your van into 6th gear and save on fuel while you’re cruising along. You’ll find the gear changes are smooth and quick too.
Featuring a range of advanced 2.0-litre Ford EcoBlue diesel engines, the New Transit is more powerful and more efficient than ever. With four powertrains available, offering up to 185 PS of horsepower, you’re guaranteed to find the one that meets your specific needs.
To help maximise efficiency, the New Transit is now available as a Ecoblue Hybrid. A small battery-driven electric motor works with the conventional engine to help reduce fuel consumption when demand for power is low.
A selective catalytic reduction system uses AdBlue®, a urea/water-based fluid to convert NOx emissions in the exhaust gas into nitrogen and water. A particulate filter then reduces more than 99% of emitted solid particulates from the vehicle’s exhaust. To operate correctly, the AdBlue® tank of your Ford EcoBlue diesel engine must be filled with AdBlue® fluid. System warnings illuminate when fluid level becomes too low.
The innovative Ford EcoGuide system continually assesses the effects of your driving behaviour on your fuel consumption. The system analyses your speed, gear shifting, braking and anticipation levels, plus the number of short and long journeys you make. EcoGuide then feeds this information back to you via a display on the dashboard. The aim is to encourage you to drive more efficiently, reduce fuel consumption and save you money over the life of the vehicle.
