2017 Ford Transit - Versatility Redefined

No matter what road you're headed down, the new Transit is a good choice. If you're not in need of a full-size, do-it-all van like the Transit, then the smaller, Transit Connect is an excellent alternative.

The Transit offers 487.3 cubic feet of cargo space, making it easy to store a wide range of items. You also get the choice of two wheelbases, three roof heights and three body lengths.

Well-Equipped Trims

The 2017 Ford Transit in Mesquite comes in one trim. Standard equipment includes 16-inch steel wheels, a hinged passenger-side door, vinyl upholstery and a two-speaker audio system with an auxiliary input jack. Leather upholstery, power-retractable running boards, navigation and a heavy-duty trailering package are just some of the many available options.

The new Transit Connect is offered in Cargo Van and Wagon body styles, as well as three trims: XL, XLT and Titanium (wagon only).

Standard equipment on the base XL includes 16-inch steel wheels, keyless entry, vinyl upholstery and floor coverings, built-in cargo tie-down hooks, tilt/telescoping steering and a two-speaker sound system with an auxiliary audio input jack. The wagon version adds a longer wheelbase, driver lumbar adjustment, rear climate controls and power second-row windows.

The top-tier Titanium adds 16-inch alloys, adaptive cornering foglights, chrome exterior trim, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery and heated front seats. Excellent connectivity features like navigation, a 6.5-inch touchscreen and the SYNC 3 infotainment interface are also included.

Energetic Engines

The 2017 Ford Transit in Mesquite employs a standard 275-horsepower 3.7L V6 engine, delivering 260 lb-ft of torque. Buyers can also opt for a 185-horsepower, 3.2-liter turbocharged diesel that puts out 350 lb-ft of torque. For even more power, 2017 Ford Transit reviews recommend the 3.5-liter turbo that generates 310 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. Towing capacity maxes out at 7,500 pounds when properly equipped.

The Transit Connect utilizes a smaller 2.5-liter four-cylinder motor that makes 169 horsepower and 171 torque. Front-wheel drive is standard as is a six-speed automatic transmission. When properly equipped, the van can tow up to 2,000 pounds. The five- or seven-passenger vehicle gets an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 23 mpg combined (20 mpg city/28 mpg highway).

Advanced Safety

No matter the model you choose, 2017 Ford Transit reviews praise the vehicle's ability to offer standout safety across the board. Standards like a rearview camera, antilock brakes, and traction and stability control will help keep passengers and cargo safe on the road. Also standard are side curtain airbags and seatbelt pretensioners. Ford's MyKey system, which lets owners set driving parameters for various drivers, is a notable option for fleets.
