2016 Ford Transit

Ubiquitous throughout Europe, the Ford Transit has been the best-selling light commercial vehicle in Europe for four decades - and since its introduction in Canada in 2015, many business and fleet owners have seen why. The 2016 Ford Transit is the latest in this long line of award-winning vans, and has helped Ford secure the title of Canada's Best-Selling Automotive Brand for the seventh year in a row (2009-2015). Hardworking and versatile, the 2016 Ford Transit comes in five models: Transit Van, Transit Wagon XL, Transit Wagon XLT, Transit Chassis Cab, and Transit Cutaway.

Versatility for Your Business Needs

Thanks to numerous body lengths and roof heights, the 2016 Ford Transit provides a flexible platform for your commercial needs. Low-roof models are small enough to fit into most public parking garages and urban work spaces, while medium- and high-roof models offer incredible interior capacity. Every Transit has a pair of cabin doors, and side doors can be configured as needed - opt for zero, one, or two sliding doors, or 60/40 swing-out passenger-side doors. Straight, simple sheet metal surrounds the Transit, with the Wagon editions receiving tinted side windows. In the rear, the cargo doors are hinged as far to the side as possible, allowing for 237 degrees of swing - letting you make use of the full width of the cargo hold. Heated sideview mirrors clear off snow and ice in the winter, while long-arm power mirrors let you see to the end of the long wheelbase models and beyond, particularly useful if you are towing as well.

When it comes to interior flexibility, it's hard to find a better vehicle than the 2016 Ford Transit. If you need the best in cargo space, the Van and Cutaway models offer seating for two in the front, while the Wagon provides seating for up to 15 passengers, depending on the layout chosen. Easy-cleaning, durable vinyl is the standard upholstery, and perfect for the hard-working van, while cloth or leather can be added for extra comfort. The most important feature of the Transit is the space it has inside. This ranges from 6,356 litres in the smallest Transit 150 to up to 13,080 litres in the largest extended-length Transit 350 with the high roof. How you choose to upfit your Transit depends on the business you're in - Ambulance Prep, Builder's Prep, Motorhome Prep, RV Prep, School Bus Prep, and Shuttle Bus Prep Packages are all available, or you can work with an aftermarket company for custom fitting. Opting for the Wagon provides plenty of passenger space - every seat in any version has at least 855 millimeters of legroom, and over 960 millimeters of head room. Information and entertainment systems include the SYNC with MyFord and SYNC 3 systems, with a 6.5" colour LCD touch screen, SiriusXM, and a navigation system all available.

Power and Reliability

You want engines that you can count on and provide class-leading capabilities. The 2016 Ford Transit offers three different engines, all of them time-tested and reliable. Towing capabilities are dependent on the engine and van wheelbase, but all version can tow at least 2,100 kilograms.
