The 2018 Ford Transit on the road

Powerful engines for the cost-conscious business.

The challenge of operating at high performance while helping to keep costs low has gotten easy, thanks to powerplants designed to deliver impressive performance. The standard 3.7L Ti-VCT V6 is engineered with twin independent variable cam timing technology for responsive performance across a wide power band. The available 3.2L I-5 Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel has all the high-torque power you need – plus proven Ford durability and dependability.

3.7L Ti-VCT V6 engine available on the Ford Transit

3.7L Ti-VCT V6

The standard 3.7L V6 delivers responsive power with 275 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque along with impressive performance, thanks in large part to twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) technology. Intake and exhaust valves typically have to open and close at a fixed point, compromising performance. But Ti-VCT virtually eliminates this compromise. With its variable control of valve cam timing, Ti-VCT can optimize performance across the entire range of the power band to match driving conditions. With the 3.7L engine, Ford offers an available CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package* for power conversion to compressed natural gas (CNG) or propane autogas.
