What's New for the 2021 Ford Transit?

A continuation of the first Transit generation, which was first introduced here in Oregon, and across the country, back in 2015, the 2021 model doesn't introduce any major updates or revisions, but it does give drivers a couple of nice changes to look forward to. 2020 was a big year for this model, when it received new engine options and available all-wheel drive, and this year's model builds on those changes with available packages that help you personalize your ride even further, including RV Prep and Adventure Prep packages, both of which are available on the Transit Cargo Van style.

The Difference Between Cargo Vans, Passenger Vans, and the Transit Connect

The Ford Transit cargo vans may be intended for carrying all types of cargo, but you can also customize them to seat as many as 15 passengers. It's a great option for large families who have to transport more than the average number of families with lots of luggage, bulky sports gear, and loads of groceries. The Transit Connect is better suited as a passenger with a maximum seating capacity of seven passengers.
