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.
