2015 Ford Transit Tampa FL
When Ford decided to retire the Econoline/E-series, it needed to bring in something bigger, stronger, and more fuel efficient to replace its best selling commercial vehicle. The big carmaker had to look no further than Europe, as it brings over a redesigned giant, the 2015 Ford Transit in Tampa, FL. Hugely customizable, providing overwhelming space and seating for up to 15, or enough power to tow at max 7,300 lbs with the right equipment. Simply put, this van is no Euro wimp.
With three different wheelbases, several different vehicle heights, and three engine options, the 2015 Ford Transit is easily one of the most customizable vehicles on the market. Need a spacious van to haul around cargo that also get’s great gas mileage? A regular wheelbase, with a low roof using a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 is the answer. Need to haul and tow plenty of stuff, with a long lasting durable engine? The extended wheelbase with a high ceiling equipped with a powerful 3.2-liter turbodiesel should be the vehicle needed.
Three engines for the Transit
Giving the Transit three different engines gives consumers plenty of options, even with the very capable standard engine, a 3.7-liter V6 able to produce 266 horsepower. With the option to upgrade to something bigger, using what they’ve learned from the F-series, Ford has designed an Ecoboost 3.5-liter V6 to improve fuel economy without sacrificing power. To further consumer choice, there is an even more efficient engine as a third possibility, the 3.2-liter turbodiesel. The Ecoboost V6 pumps out 400 pound-feet of torque, while its diesel brother commands 346 lb-ft of torque. All three engines are coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission making them easy to drive and powerful vans for any fleet that wishes for fuel efficiency and storage.
Van or Wagon?
The 2015 Ford Transit in Tampa, FL comes in three standard trims, though any one can be optimized for what the consumer needs. The Van trim is all about moving and storage, its sides windowless and it sports a rather spartan build, but can be ordered with a Heavy Duty Trailer Tow Package, making it the brute of the group. Meanwhile the Wagon XL and Wagon XLT have optional seating for 8, 10, 12, or 15 people, all with available rear air conditioning. Both offer a long list of available optional additions that will make driving comfortable, easier, and more efficient.
