Tested and Built Ford Tough®

We conducted testing on roads and highways across America, at temperature extremes from -40 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. We also used trucks driven by robots at our Michigan Proving Grounds facility, allowing us to compress years of daily abuse into a mere few months. Our objective: Enable Transit to take on the toughest challenges of strength and dependability on your everyday jobs.
