Power-efficient 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 V6 is engineered with twin independent variable cam timing technology for responsive performance across a wide power band. And 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

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 the driving condition of the moment. 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.

3.2L I-5 Power Stroke® Turbo Diesel

Severe-duty applications call for an engine like the available B20 biodiesel-capable, direct-injected 3.2L Power Stroke inline I-5 Turbo Diesel. This Transit engine option, rated at 185 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque, is designed to deliver the power you need plus proven third-generation Ford diesel ruggedness and dependability.

With the available manual regen initiation feature, you don’t have to drive at cruising speed to get the engine temperature high enough to initiate regeneration, the process of burning off soot from exhaust gases trapped in the diesel particulate filter (DPF). While the engine is idling, you can activate manual regen initiation to raise the exhaust gas temperature to burn off the soot. After the burn-off is completed, the exhaust temperature reverts to its normal level.

Alternative Fuel Capability

Compressed natural gas (CNG) and propane autogas are becoming increasingly popular choices for those looking to reduce emissions. That’s why the 3.7L V6-powered Transit offers the CNG/Propane Gaseous Engine Prep Package.* Included are hardened exhaust valves and valve seats for improved wear resistance and durability for gaseous fuel systems.

    *Vehicle will be equipped with the standard factory gasoline fuel system. This package does not include compressed natural gas/propane fuel tanks and lines, etc. See your dealer for details.
