2014 Ford Transit Van: Fuel-Efficient Diesel Option Unveiled

2014 Ford transit diesel The Ford Transit commercial van to be launched this year will have a diesel engine option. The diesel engine for the 2014 Ford Transit van will be a five-cylinder PowerStroke model, the company announced, extending the fuel efficiency benefits of clean-diesel powertrains into its upcoming commercial van.

Ford says the new engine will offer “smooth, responsive performance” and power as well as good fuel efficiency, reducing its operating costs for van owners and fleet operators.

The new Transit van will replace the Ford E-Series van line with a global design that’s already in production in numerous countries around the world.

Ford says it expects the new diesel engine, and hence the 2014 Transit van into which it’s fitted, to be compatible with up to 20% biodiesel fuel sources (known as B20).

The five-cylinder PowerStroke Diesel won’t be the only engine offered in the Transit van. Ford has already announced that it will also be fitted with the 3.5-liter turbocharged EcoBoost gasoline engine.

The 2014 Ford Transit van will go on sale late in 2013.
