2018 Ford Transit
Transit minivan is fighting in this segment for top spot. Competition is strong, with German rivals holding significant share of the market. But, that could be benefit for American company, since it must keep the pace with constant innovations. Now, it is time for new generation, 6th in 50 years history of the model, and it should start with 2018 Ford Transit. What it is going to bring, we will see, but big changes are on the way, as well as huge expectations from buyers and fans. Some of the parts from current vehicles, launched in 2013 will be kept, and most features are getting upgrade.
2018 Ford Transit redesign
Minivan is used for transportation, both people or goods. As current version 2018 Ford Transit is going to be offered in two bodies, cargo van and passenger wagon. Nevertheless, we still don’t know if same trims are used for it. This van can take 5 or 7 passengers, but not in all versions. Swing-out doors are used again, while other types are considered. 16-inch wheels are the same as before, while bumper and lights are being revisited. Other standard equipment is air-conditioning, cargo tie-down hooks, foldable passenger seats and many others. Higher trim models of the Transit can offer fog lights and leather upholstery.
2018 Ford Transit engines
Under the hood of the 2018 Ford Transit is a 3.5-l EcoBoost unit. This engine is good for 300 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. Nevertheless, another petrol unit could be used, a 3.7-l V6. Although it has bigger displacement, it can offer less power, 280 horses with 260 pound-feet of torque. Some rumors are going even further, claiming that 2018 Transit is going to get power from a 3.2-l 5-cylinder drivetrain, which is capable to deliver 185 hp. It is almost sure, even if it wasn’t confirmed yet, that 6-gears transmission will send power to wheels.
2018 Ford Transit price
With new generation, new prices are being made for 2018 Ford Transit. If current vehicle could be purchased for around $26,000, do not expect new to be cheaper. Contrary, 2018 year model will be more expensive for at least couple of thousand dollars, but do not be surprised if company slaps $30,000 price tag for entry-level models.
