Featuring a range of advanced 2.0-litre Ford EcoBlue diesel engines, the New Transit Chassis Cab is more powerful and more efficient than ever. With four powertrains available, offering up to 185 PS of horsepower and 415 Nm of torque, you’re guaranteed to find the one for you. Whichever you choose, every engine meets the stringent Euro 6.2 emissions standards too. The vehicle is available with a Heavy Duty Truck (HDT) engine for heavier conversions, and even as a mild Hybrid Electric Vehicle (mHEV) for even greater fuel economy and reduced CO2 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.

Low rolling resistance tyres on the new Transit Minibus are designed to reduce the energy required to make the tyres roll. This means less power is required to move, and fuel consumption is reduced over the life of the vehicle.
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.
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.
