Ford Dealer in Duluth Reviews the New Transit

The 2016 Ford Transit and Transit Connect are top vehicle options for small and large business owners. The small Transit Connect is completely unaltered for the 2016 model year; however, its big brother, the Ford Transit, comes with new standard features, an all-new available infotainment system and fresh optional equipment. It also offers a total of 58 different vehicle configurations this year, making it a perfect choice for big business owners in search of a versatile commercial van. To learn more about both Transit models and their benefits, take a look at our 2016 Ford Transit review.

The Transit Connect, a smaller version of the Transit, arrives with no modifications for 2016 and continues to be a solid pick for small business owners. It comes available with or without second-row seating, SYNC MyFord Touch, a rearview camera and can tow 2,000 pounds when properly equipped. The standard 2016 Ford Transit in Duluth has been slightly revised this year and is now standard with a rearview camera and tow-hitch assist. Ford's brand-new SYNC 3 infotainment system replaces MyFord Touch on the commercial van and the addition of optional dual sliding doors boosts the amount of vehicle configurations available. Buyers can choose to include the sliding doors on medium- and high-roof models to better suit their overall needs.

When it comes to powering the 2016 Ford Transit in Duluth drivers have three engine options: a 3.7L V-6, 3.2L five-cylinder diesel and 3.5L V-6. The 3.7L V-6 delivers 275 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, while the 3.5L V-6 produces 310 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque. The turbocharged 3.2L five-cylinder diesel outputs 185 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque, while also delivering excellent fuel economy. Unlike the standard Transit, the 2016 Ford Transit Connect can be equipped with either a 2.5L Duratec engine or a 1.6L EcoBoost. Both engines are paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, which helps the van deliver first-class fuel economy ratings, benefiting frequent travelers.
