Got a job to do but not really a truck job? Like, you want your equipment stowed and organized with easy access to all of it? You need something more versatile than a truck bed? You have things to hang, things to stow, things flat in drawers, and things on hooks? Maybe making deliveries or having everything in its place and having a ton of space is a lot more important to you than how many pounds it can haul. If that sounds like you, it sounds like you need a 2019 Ford Transit Van. Cousins of the Ford F-series, these vans are for a different type of job, but still know how to work hard.
How Many Wonders Can One Transit Hold?
Quite a few wonders here. With three roof heights and three body lengths, cargo capacity varies. But you're looking at up to 487 cubic feet of storage and an interior height of 74.3 inches. Load this van up, weight it down. The Transit Van can take the weight, hauling up to 4,640 pounds. If you're more of a people hauler, this Transit Van can be converted to hold 15 seats, not quite a bus but pretty close. And don't worry about everything being a jumbled mess in the back. Ford has dealings with 13 upfitters that can add seats, shelves, cupboards, drawers, hooks, grated walls, and more. You can customize the cavernous area behind the front seats however you like. And because those 13 upfitter locations are within spitting distance of the assembly plant where Ford makes the Transit Van, it'll be customized to your specifications before you know it.
Accessing your cargo is as easy as you want to make it. That's because the Transit Van can be customized for doors too. There's a passenger-side 60/40 hinged cargo doors, standard on low-roof models, or an optional passenger-side sliding door. If you need doors on both sides, dual sliding side cargo doors fit the bill. You can also opt for rear hinged 50/50 cargo doors, swinging open 180 degrees on the 130-inch wheelbase variation and 253 degrees on the 148-inch wheelbase model. The Transit Van works because it works specifically for you.
You Get an Engine, and You Get an Engine…
Lucky for you, the Ford Transit Van can also be customized under the hood. You get one of three flavors of engine: Super, Super-duper, and Diesel. The base engine is a 3.7-liter V6, good for 14 city miles and 18 highway miles per gallon. That's pretty reasonable for its class and capabilities. Then there's the gas-powered turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine, which has marginally better city mileage. Finally, there's the optional 3.2-liter 5-cylinder turbodiesel. The diesel engine gets you pretty far on a tank, but the EPA doesn't rate it so we can't give you any exact numbers. But with all these engine options, just like all the other customizable features on the 2019 Ford Transit Van, we're confident you can find something just right for you.
