Why Choose a Ford Transit Van

Transit has improved the fuel consumption which is impressive. Base engine gets a combined 16 mpg (15mpg city/ 20mpg Highway) which is a really good figure. Another option is a turbocharged 3.5-L V6 engine which produces 18 mpg (18 mpg city/ 22 mpg Highway) which is far better than the base engine.
