The two engine options are the 3.5L PFDI V6 good for 275hp and 262lbs.-ft. of torque and a max tow rating of 6,400lbs. or the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 with 310hp and 400lbs.-ft. of torque and a max tow rating of 6,800lbs. Both engines are mated to a 10-speed automatic SelectShift transmission and can be had in either rear or all-wheel drive.
 
To keep your employees and cargo safe on the road the Transit comes with Ford’s Co-Pilot 360 technology. Features like pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, this feature can help reduce and possibly eliminate a collision by emitting a warning and pre-charging the brakes and can even apply the brakes automatically. The lane-keeping system will warn you of lane drift. The adaptive cruise control system allows you to set a distance to the vehicle in front of you and will slow, stop, and even resume with the flow of traffic. Forward collision warning will alert you with visible light and audible warning when a collision is imminent and even pre-charge the brakes for full responsiveness. Post-collision braking will apply brake pressure after sensing an initial collision to possibly avoid a second collision. Auto High beam headlights sense light conditions and dim when sensing oncoming traffic or ambient visible light. BLIS is the blind-spot warning system that also extends to your trailer and gives you warnings of cross-traffic behind while backing up. Rain-sensing wipers turn on and adjust speed based on how wet the windshield gets.
