Complete Ford display and the AWD System on the Transit

Ford had a nice looking display of the AWD System for the Ford Transit. They lady over Powertrain Systems for Ford explained all of the workings on it to me and we went over all the detailed parts that were highlighted in the display.

The first picture was part of the Ford presentation on ALL of the NEW changes in the Ford Truck Division with Transit just being one part of it.

The rest of the pictures are from the display of the AWD System on the Ford Transit.

The Orange driveshaft was shortened to just show the connection between back of the Transfer Case and the Rear Axle assembly.

The Silver case is the NEW 10 Speed Transmission that is NOW STANDARD on ALL Transit models.

The engine displayed with this AWD setup was the 3.5L V-6 engine that is replacing the 3.7L engine.

The Long Blue bracing is part of the support for the linkup of the front to rear drive system for the AWD. Without this bracing, there would be too much flexing in the distribution of the power between the front and rear drivelines.

Here are some pictures of the CrewCab seating option that was on the 2020 T-250 Transit van.

BOTH the cloth and leather materials have been changed for the 2020 model.

The CrewCab and CrewVan models will have their own body codes so you won't be able to get BOTH seating arrangements together from the factory.

The Instrument Panel is ALL NEW with changes in the Instrument Cluster, Audio System (that looks to be similar to the Ford EcoSport). BOTH ends of the Instrument Panel with relocated cup holders. Other changes in the upper portion of the dash towards the windshield that are different from prior models.

The 3.5L EcoBoost engine UNCHANGED from 2019 and prior. The change to the 2nd Generation 3.5L may be coming in 2021 according to the information I got from the Powertrain Group

One mentioned option that was kept hidden and not shown BUT was there was the Power Sliding Side Door. I knew what the mechanism would look like from the Continental Group who designed it for the European model and had a prototype of it at their State Fair of Texas display 2 years ago. It was on the 2020 T-250 cargo van that was there.

The CrewVan was one of the display vehicles that was planned to be at the show but delays in the final finish kept it from being in the show. They did show a picture of it on the presentation screen.

Note this one has the pop-out second row windows that up to now were only available on the passenger van.

For you guys wondering about how Ford looks at the upfitted 4x4 models made by Quigley and QuadVans. Through the Powertrain Group, they look at the 4x4 model to be a more heavy use vehicle that would be used in the mountains and for offroad applications. On the presentation screen, they only showed the AWD in normal road conditions and in a few pictures in the snow.

Did they talk about how the system is able to transfer 100 percent of torque forwards? I was already operating under the assumption that it's more like the AWD you see in crossovers. Mainly meant for inclement weather or forest roads. For me personally, I can't fit a van anywhere that would require more than that, but for those who are really venturing off the beaten path, they are still going to want a true 4wd setup IMHO.
