Translation for All. Ford Transit 2020: the new version provides 15 seats and 10 reports automaticallyFord has decided to update the versions of the Transit line, guaranteeing more performance but also reliability and versatilityDaSimone Paciocco -3 March 2019fordFord Transit returns as a handyman: it can be configured as a cargo van or used as a passenger version with 15 seats and is offered in three different heights. For the 2020 model, the Transit will receive an update to make it even more useful for more types of customers. The van was revealed publicly on Tuesday at the NTEA Work Truck Show in Indianapolis and will go on sale this fall.*This Transit was introduced to the US market in 2014 and, at first glance, may not seem so different. But Ford claims that 53% of its content is new. Furthermore, there will be 92 possible configurations for the version that will be released in 2020, compared to the previous 64.The changes begin under the bonnet to see a 3.5-liter V6 engine replacing the previous 3.7-liter V6 standard. In addition, the company claims that the 3.5-liter will offer increases compared to the 275 horsepower that accompanied the previous 3.7-liter engine. Likewise, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbodiesel should be more powerful and quieter than the inline-five 3.2-liter turbodiesel. The well-known 3.5-liter V8 biturbo remains in the purchase options. In addition to diesel, the tech stop-start engine also saves fuel.Read also: Ford: an internal survey on declared fuel consumption takes place*10-speed automatic transmissionThe standard 10-speed automatic transmission becomes a standard surprise, replacing the old six-speed transmission. Ford states that the longer transmission ratio range will improve both acceleration and fuel efficiency.An important note is that Transit with all-wheel drive have the same driving height as normal rear-wheel drive vans. This makes it easier for passengers to enter or for workers to load the van, says Ford.Power-sliding doors are also available for 2020, a feature that should be an advantage for the numerous Transit vans used as shuttles. "These doors are opened several times on a shuttle van than on a minivan, sometimes 500 times a day." Tim Stoehr, general manager of the Ford fleet, said at the January preview in Detroit.

I read the same article this morning but in English. It also mentioned optional swivel seats, crew cargo van seating, awd, and several new tech options. Strangely the article would not reload the second time I tried to read it?

If you wait for a moment, it will translate to English!

This was for release originally on Wednesday but they sent it to me ahead of time.

Why is the North American Transit being advertised in Italy?

I'm suspicious about THIS van being sold in the USA.

It is published in various languages and is considered a world rendering of a Ford product.

I will see 3 of the Transit models at the NTEA Work Truck Show on Tuesday.

One thing that is coming on the 2020 model is the Crew Van package...current noted as a "Crew Cab" variant. It will feature a second row 3 passenger seat behind the front passenger area. I worked with Ford for nearly 2 years to get this and their last comment was it would only happen with roof air bags in the seating area. They went with this setup in a passenger van for 2019 where you could get this seating but only in a passenger van. Curious to see what roof setup they use for this package.

Another news link has been added with more information about ALL the changes on the 2020 model. So far it looks like everything I had been referring to about what was on the 2019 European Transit is on this 2020 model with some slight variations.

Now might be the time for you to get on the Matt Ford 2020 B-O-B Transit Service list as I will have this out as soon as the 2020 Ford Transit Order Guide is released. It will have all the information needed to build your Transit build sheet, get a preview order for your desired build, and then have all the information about buying a 2020 Ford Transit with financing information and details about all the available Ford rebates.

Now THAT would be an interesting option, and would made for a hoot of a family wagon.
